The above quote was intriguing as it is a claim that is made often enough but is supported by less than concrete means. If race has a concrete existence it must have concrete properties and these must correspond with scientific principles.

To start, race is an aggregate of blood, which is a fluid, which is an aggregate consisting of over 90% water and the remainder of plasma, blood cells and platelets.

All fluids share basic characteristics and yield to laws that affect them proportionally to their degree of viscosity. Understanding the dynamics behind these allows us to understand race from a chemical point of view. What follows is a short analysis of race as a fluid and the laws that affect it.

All fluids are formless and must be contained or impressed upon to give them shape. What has no shape is said to have unceasing motion and what has is said to have its motion arrested.

All fluids exhibit a degree of viscosity which slows or accelerates the rate at which it flows. The greater the viscosity the denser the fluid, the less it will flow and the more resistant to force it will be.

Viscosity can be relative to temperature, as temperature decreases so does viscosity.

All fluids are reduced to two types, soluble and insoluble. What is soluble is divisible in a solvent what is insoluble is not.

The combinations of insoluble fluids with other insoluble fluids result in a mixture to varying degrees, where all combinations of soluble fluids with the same result in a solution.

All mixtures are heterogeneous and all solutions are homogenous.

A mixture is not permanent; the original properties of the fluids can be separated as is evident in individual bodies, which can not occupy the same space.

A solution is permanent and can not be separated as is evident in the conclusion of bodies in reproduction into one homogenous body.

Soluble fluids resist dissolution in proportion to the strength of their molecular bond, cohesive properties, temperature and forces that act against them.

Since the liquid state is the state by which matter is neither a solid nor a gas. No form of matter has a permanent existence but instead experiences a cyclic transformation between solid, liquid and gas.

Liquids ascend or descend proportionately to the loss or gain of heat. Because heat is a result of friction and because friction is a result of motion and because motion is a result of force, force either impedes or influences motion in either an expansive or detractive manner.

Where heat is gained particles accelerate, divide and dissipate. Where heat is lost they decelerate, congeal and condense.

No soluble fluid can have a permanent existence but must pass through all other states relative to viscosity, velocity and temperature. The two states of matter that are solid and gaseous are extreme states and the liquid is the median.

All alterations toward extremes are the results of a disruption in equilibrium. All disruptions can be reduced to either that of evaporation or condensation or respectively, expansion and isolation.

In an open system, heat is a catalyst to evaporation in which the expansion of molecules result in an acceleration towards the gaseous state. Likewise, the loss of heat becomes a catalyst to condensation in which the contraction of molecules results in a deceleration toward the solid state.

In a closed system or container, there are equal amounts of evaporation and condensation, resulting in the equilibrium of the fluid.

In the liquid state, race is neither too expansive nor too isolated and moves within those confinements and restrictions imposed by laws which can not be violated. In the solid state, race is too isolated as a result of arrest. In the gaseous state, race is too expansive as a result of agitation. In both extreme states, agitation and arrest are the results of laws that are not sufficient and too variable to those laws already in effect.

All liquids absent of confinement have a freedom of motion that defines its own confinement. On the other hand, liquids subjected to confinements have their motions arrested in relation to those confinements. That free motion is the natural state of race within nature’s imposed restrictions, is evident through the free movement of men. The degree of fluidity and the velocity by which they move determines the form that race assumes and the viscosity establishes how resilient its character will be.

All liquids seek their own level in relation to their specific gravity. Thus the limiting and expansive nature of race returns always to that state of equilibrium.

Where men move in accord with ascetic inclinations, race has evolved conducive to form. Where men move in accord with practical inclinations race has evolved conducive to function. Whatever the reason has been for men to exercise their natural inclination to move, race has evolved along that inclination.

In conclusion, race is fluid and shares similar properties with blood and water. It is not permanent but dynamic. It must pass through all states of existence and none have permanence over the others. The liquid state though is that state of equilibrium that develops the individual properties that are harmonious to its specific gravity.

As race is fluid, we may only assume that there is no end to racial evolution, that the fluidity of races will continue into the future as it has in the past. That new races which arise will consist of all of the qualities of older races and that race can not die out or go extinct from this fluidity. Where some will find it in their being to isolate themselves within confined parameters specific to their natures, there will always be counter currents of expansion and integration. In this dynamic cycle of race the only certainty is that neither will have permanence or dominance.
