Fascinating info, always a pleasure to read this thread.
If anything, I have come to realize that Humankind has always, deep in their thoughts and cultural fabric retained important observable facts from their experiences , the stories all reflect the energy of Life.
I would like to share some info that I have a hard time discarding as simple mindedness.
The Holy Trinity??
Oxygen is ParaMagnetic, attracted to magnetic fields and align to them. Hmmm?
Hydrogen is DiaMagnetic which repells magnetic fields by curving the flux lines around it creating
its own repelling field. Wow!
Magnetite or Iron is FerroMagnetic to which when an External magnetic field is applied, retain the magnetism
based on the currie point temperature??
Monoatomics- all elements are monoatomic at high temperatures??
Well if Plasma is considered high temperature where electrons or protons are not bound to any atomic structure, I am trying to imagine isotopes of Magnetite, oxygen interacting with hydrogen when one retains one is attracted to and the other repels, talk about ordered chaos.
Then by chance I was thinking about the dust devils and vortexes , birkeland currents and thought that if I told someone that these currents are what causes volcanic activity by essentially microwaving the iron or magnetite in this mother we call earth, they might think I'm nuts, so I threw them a curve that I was looking in to it.
The best thing I have ever did was ponder the EU.
Wow what a ride, we are as a speck on the cooling side of a lump of charcoal looking up at the flame that engulfs us.
Plasma, trully is the fundamental state, all else is a variation of equations of pressure and cooling combined with the constituents of the immediate environment.

I found these def's at Wikipedia,
Teach me a fact and I'll learn; Tell me the truth and I'll Believe;
Tell me a Story and it will live in my Heart forever--
