An oversized ‘Genkitama’ defeated Majin Buu in ‘Dragon Ball’. What is the ‘burden’ per person?

Hello, this is Rikao Yanagita from the Institute of Science and Technology. I enjoy thinking about manga, anime, special effects programs, etc., from the perspective of science fiction. By the way, today’s research report is.

Do you remember Majin Buu, who rampaged at the end of “Dragon Ball”?

A monster is said to have been created by the mage Vividy millions of years ago. It had been sealed for a long time, but Babidi’s son, Babidi, revived it.

It’s a scary guy, and he turns humans into sweets and eats them, and the light that he spits from his mouth turns the field into a burnt area as far as the eye can see.

In the end, I wondered if the earthlings were annihilated and the earth was extinguished …!

The reason why this happened was that Buu had a regenerative ability that was unthinkable in common sense.

The wound will heal immediately, whether stabbed by a spear or shot by a bazooka. Even if the body falls apart or the fragments are burned one by one, it will be revived calmly. Even if it was heavily poisoned, it was sick.

Goku and his friends evacuated to the world of King God just before the disappearance of the earth, revived the earth and the earthlings with a dragon ball, made an oversized “genkitama” with the energy shared by everyone, and finally defeated Buu. Bottom.

The battle ended with this narration.

“Finally, Majin Buu has disappeared … it disappeared completely, leaving no cells behind …”.

I’m glad I managed to defeat it, but it disappeared entirely without leaving any cells !? What kind of defeat is it !?

Why is Buu immortal?
In the world of “Dragon Ball”, the barrier between life and death is low.

Both Goku and Vegeta were dead once and returned to the world for a limited time to fight. Namekian Dende brings the dead back to life with the touch of a hand. In addition, as mentioned above, the power of Dragon Ball has caused a mass revival in which all the annihilated earthlings are revived.

Considering such a worldview, Majin Buu is splendid.

No matter what you do, you won’t die. In other words, he never crosses the border between life and death, and he is the only one who protects his “life.”

Why is it possible only for this person?

In the case of multicellular organisms, cells of the same type gather to form tissues, and the tissues combine to form organs such as the digestive system and circulatory system.

Organs are highly specialized, and if essential organs such as the brain and heart are destroyed, the individual will die.

However, such common sense does not apply to Majin Buu.

Even if you make a big hole in your chest, it will be restored soon. It seems that this is because the body is no longer divided into organs, or even if it is divided, it regenerates cells ⇒ and tissues ⇒ organs at a tremendous speed.

If even one cell is alive, such an organism must be revived as if nothing had happened. It’s an annoying enemy, and as the narration in the film says, the only way to defeat Majin Buu is to “erase every cell.”

The method of erasing cells is easy for typical organisms.

When exposed to flames or heat rays, the protein denatures at 70 degrees and cannot be restored, and at 90 degrees, the double helix of the DNA unravels.

If heated to several hundred degrees, it will react with the surrounding oxygen and burn up, leaving no cells traced.

However, that also doesn’t work for Majin Buu.

In the explosion that Vegeta caused in exchange for life, a photosphere with a diameter of several kilometres was generated. The temperature should have reached millions of degrees at this scale, and the Buu had fallen apart.

However, each piece became a small Buu and merged to return to its original form. Buu’s cells do not appear to denature, degrade, or burn when exposed to high temperatures.

-In this case, there is no choice but to destroy it at the next lower stage of the cell, that is, at the “atomic level”.

The energy of 250,000 tons of oil
As long as Buu exists in this universe, the body must be made of atoms. If this premise doesn’t work, it’s too late.

Therefore, let us assume that the weight of Majin Buu is 100 kg and the composition ratio of atoms is the same as that of the human body. Then, oxygen 65%, carbon 18%, hydrogen 10%, nitrogen 3%, and other atoms are trace amounts.

The only way to destroy an atom is to break it apart, in which enormous energy goes in and out. For example, nuclear power generation uses the energy generated when atomic nuclei such as uranium are destroyed to create electricity. Still, thermal power generation, which burns oil, requires 90 tons of oil to produce the same energy as 1 kg of uranium.

How much energy did the spirit ball that erased Majin Buu have?

The above is an example of the reaction when energy comes out. Still, to destroy the atomic nuclei of carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, and nitrogen that make up the body of an organism, power must be poured in the opposite direction.

When these four nuclei are separated, the final result is stable helium. Helium atoms cannot be used as cell materials because they do not bind to other atoms. In other words, Majin Buu will completely disappear into the void of space.

The energy required for this is 250,000 tons when converted to oil!

What is the burden per person?
Goku gathered this much energy from the people’s power, but were the people who provided it okay?

Vegeta convinced people, “I’m pretty tired, but don’t worry! It’s the same as after running hard!”

After running all the way? Is it enough?

The people of the world, including the Earthlings, the Namekians, the Androids from the future, Android No. 8, and the Great Enma, shared their energy.

The current global population is 7.8 billion. There were few influential people, such as Namekians. Still, their physical strength was not comparable to that of Earthlings, so let’s assume that 10 billion people energized them in terms of Earthlings.

Then, the energy borne by one person is 270 kcal.

Oh, that’s amazing. Isn’t it possible with 270 kcal?

More than 10% of the 2500kcal consumed by adult men a day. When a human runs 1 km, it consumes 1 kcal per 1 kg of body weight. 270kcal is the energy consumed when a person weighing 70kg runs 3.8km.

Certainly after running hard! Vegeta’s words were scientifically correct!

It is ridiculous that that giant spirit ball was a fantasy scientific value of Natuk.

And if all human beings and their friends work together, I’m impressed with how amazing it can be.
