Can muscle tissue crystallize when heated?

Asked by marialisa (464 points ) July 18th, 2010

If possible, what would happen to a muscle if it could crystallize and would it be painful?
Would it crystallize more muscle tissue as time went on?

1, not possible unless the carbon based life for was put in a super dense plasma field, and 2, it would be instant.

Oh yeah, if it was possible to crystalize it, it would stop when the heat dies, but like I said, not possible.

@XOIIO
What is a super dense plasma field?
Thanks!

Well, humans can make plasma, but only small amounts. The amount needed it beyond human tech for quite a while, just google plasma and the wiki will have good info on the basics and what it is.

@XOIIO
I appreciate you answering such an odd question. What about argon filled (mercury filled)
light bulbs? Could this create a super dense plasma field? Argon is highly ionizing…

Alright, I got some sleep, here we go.

Plasma is basically super crompressed gasses, which in turn heat up because of all the pressure needed. If a carebon based life form was put in a bunch of plasma that was just the right conditions, it would basically desintegrate the life form, and compress it. This compression and heat would be so great that the carbon would turn into… diamonds. I seriously doubt that a light bulb could get to this level.

I actually got this theory from Doctor Who, but in principle it should work, it’s just a matter of testing it out.
