Expert Answer:

Dear student,

The usual three states of matter that we are familiar with are solid, liquid and gas. All states of matter differ in terms of properties such as integrity of shape and vibrational rate of molecules. There are four more states of matter.

The fourth state of matter above gas is plasma. Plasma is ionized gas. It is gas that is superheated to the point some of its electrons break away from their nuclei and join other nuclei.

The fifth state of matter above plasma is beam. The difference between beam and the other four states is that the particles of solid, liquid, gas and plasma all move randomly in all directions whereas the particles of beam move harmoniously in one direction.Beam is harmonious and coherent whereas plasma is chaotic and erratic.

Beam also differs from the other four states in terms of being non-thermal while the rest are thermal. The more energetic the vibrations of particles are, the more heat they would generate. But because the particles of beam are traveling in the same direction, they do not collide against each other to generate heat.

Beam creates heat not in itself but when its particles clash against other matter. You feel the heat of light when its photons clash against the molecules of your skin. The greater the intensity of the beam and the more concentrated it is, the more friction it will generate when it interacts with other matter.

Other than these five states of matter, there is a state lower than all these states. It is the zero state of matter. The zero state of matter is known as the BEC or Bose-Einstein Condensate. It is the most condensed condensate of all matter.

A BEC exists when matter is frozen to extremely low temperatures that are a tiny fraction of a degree above absolute zero.
In this state, the atoms overlap into each other to form a wave. The BEC is a matter wave. If the wave was compressed, it would form a singularity. If enough mass was condensed into the singularity it could turn into a black hole.

Some elements of each state of matter are able to exist at room temperature. There are room temperature plasmas and matter waves (dark matter).

So these are the six states of matter. But all things exist in sevens, since it is the nature of the universe to exist in sevens. The fifth state of matter is not the limit, there is a sixth state above it.
Thought wave is the sixth state of matter. Thought wave exists at a higher energetic level than beam. Thought wave can move even faster than beam. It moves at the speed of infinity. It is at once here and at once there. Thought wave is local and nonlocal.

The truth is, all matter is basically one and the same. All matter is different manifestation of thought wave or etheric matter. All other states are condensations of the highest state. Thought is consciousness, consciousness is mind. The Universal Mind is what all things ultimately consist of.

Hope this helps.
