Thought of the Day: Fire

Nothing is on fire, fire is on things.

This is a very interesting way to think about fire.

Fire is a chemical reaction that occurs when a fuel combines with oxygen in the presence of heat. The fuel can be anything that can burn, such as wood, paper, or gasoline. The oxygen comes from the air. The heat can come from a match, a spark, or a flame.

When a fuel burns, it releases energy. This energy can heat up the fuel, causing it to burn faster. It can also heat up the surrounding air, causing it to rise. The rising air can carry the smoke and ash from the fire away.

Fire is not a thing itself. It is a process that occurs when fuel burns. The fuel is what is on fire, not the air or the oxygen. Therefore, when we say something is on fire, we are actually referring to the fact that the object is fueling the chemical reaction that produces the flames. Without the object or material, there would be no fire. In other words, fire is a process that occurs on the surface of objects, rather than a substance that exists on its own.
