Definition of Soliton:
The Nature of Solitons Solitons are of peaceful permanent form, localized, and interact with other solitons to emerge from the collision unchanged ~ except for a phase shift. Solitons are peaceful, placid, still, self-reinforcing solitary waves of creation eg: a pulse of light. Solitonic creation maintains its shape while it travels at constant speed. Solitons arise as the solutions of a widespread class of weaker systems that result from lack of integrity. Life models it's Self from waves of creation that emanate from source. Truth reflects in the wholeness within all life.
