What Godzilla teaches us about fertility

Can Godzilla exist?

To answer that age-old question, let's go back to some elementary math (don't feel bad if you forgot cuz I had to double check myself).

Volume is defined as the amount of space occupied by a three-dimensional figure.  It's measured in cubic units (like feet, quarts, or centimeters).  

The volume of an object is calculated by multiplying its 3 dimensions.  So for a cube, multiplying length x width x height gives its volume.

Imagine that you have a cube with sides measuring 1 foot. 

Now imagine a second cube next to it, with sides measuring 3 feet, or 3x the length of the first cube. 

What's the volume of the second cube?  Is it 3x the first cube? 

Nope. 

It's actually 27 times greater!

Here's how it works out: 

A 1-foot cube has a volume of 1 cubic feet (1 foot x 1 foot x 1 foot) while a three-foot cube has a volume of 27 cubic feet (3 feet x 3 feet x 3 feet). 

So if the sides of a cube are increased from 1 foot to 3 feet, they would increase 3x but the volume increases 27x!

In other words, area and volume do not scale linearly with length.

So what's this got to do with Godzilla?

Well, Godzilla is about 60 times bigger than a human.  His volume and therefore mass would be 603 (or 216,000) times, the average weight of a human.  However, the length and strength of his bones would only increase by the factor of 602, or 3,600 times.  As a result, he wold be 60 times heavier than his bones are strong, and his bones would break like a twig.

So Godzilla's volume doesn't scale linearly with his length.

That's why nonlinearity can explain why Godzilla isn't real.

Nonlinearity plays a role in improving fertility as well.

There are a lot of components to improving your chances of getting pregnant.  

Physical health, emotional health, mental health, and spiritual health.  

Each of those 4 areas can be broken down even further.  

Physical health includes exercise, sleep, nutrition, supplements, getting enough sun, and so on.  

Emotional health encompasses self-love, gratitude, joy, etc.  

Each one small element has an impact.  But the aggregate and cumulative effect over time has a magnitude many times greater than the linear result.  

But you gotta get started with the first step.
