Diffusion moves resources from areas of high concentration to areas of low concentration. Diffusion is sharing, altruism, redistribution.
Diffusion is a continuous balancing act and re-balancing act. Therefore, diffusion is dynamic balance.** Diffusion is dispersion. The ability of diffusion to achieve balance varies in the short-term and long-term and in the micro and macro. As a result, although diffusion seeks balance, there is often saturation of the previously low concentration area and emptying of the previously high concentration area. This is part of the process that then causes the saturated area to begin diffusing into another area and then that area diffuses until imbalance is not as significantly concentrated in any area. An example of this is when it rains heavily during a short period of time. Plants practice diffusion. Roots absorb nutrients in the soil and diffuse these nutrients throughout the plant. Likewise, other parts of the plant diffuse nutrients back into the roots, which also diffuse nutrients back into the soil. Absorption is diffusion.
Drinking is diffusion.
The sharing of thoughts and spreading of ideas are forms of diffusion. Reading someone's mind is diffusion.
Osmosis Is DiffusionOsmosis is diffusion. Osmosis is not limited to a fluid, liquid or water and neither is osmosis limited to a semi-permeable membrane, solute or solvent. Osmosis is more expansive, thus inclusive.
Osmosis is the same thing as diffusion.
The movement of water across a semi-permeable membrane is just one form of diffusion. The movement of water across a semi-permeable membrane, although called osmosis, is just one form of osmosis, because Osmosis is Diffusion, which is the larger category describing movement from areas of high concentration to low concentration until balance, saturation or emptying is achieved. Here's what happened: Current day “scientists,” do not understand microcosm (self) as it relates to macrocosm (all else). As a result, they have taken one form of diffusion and called it “osmosis,” while at the same time, calling all other forms of diffusion, “diffusion.” This is the difference between the two. This is inconsistent and creates confusion. There are many forms of diffusion involving many substances, elements and dimensions (membranes). Osmosis, in the mistaken sense, is not thought to be diffusion. Osmosis in the correct sense, is not one form of diffusion, osmosis is all forms of diffusion.
Your skin is a semipermeable membrane. When warmth or cold from your body moves through your skin and into the skin of another person, osmosis has taken place and did not involve water. Osmosis is not just about water. There are many forms of osmosis because osmosis is diffusion. Osmosis seeks to redistribute something that is too high in one area and move it into an area where there is less. This is the same thing as diffusion. Osmosis and diffusion are synonyms and should be used interchangeably.

Heating is diffusion.
When you heat a pot or pan and put water or oil in it and then put food in it, heat diffuses into the pan, into the liquid, into the food and into you.

When you plug a device into an outlet, electricity diffuses along the wire and into the device.
The reason you get a shock when placing your finger or an item in the outlet is electricity diffusing into the item and then continuing into you Diffusion can only take place between two things that are connected.
Planet Earth is a ball of diffusion. Reckonize yourself as also being a ball of diffusion and a lot less like a ball of confusion. *Breathing is triggered by the diffusing exchange of gases.
**Diffusion is energy in motion. Diffusion is perpetual motion. Since all things are in motion and always changing, there are always imbalances to confuse and diffuse. For Additional Study:
Sometimes diffusion involves climax. (The breaking point, the release point of something that builds and then moves from one dimension into another dimension, from high to low intensity). Diffusion is logic. Diffusion is process(es).
Diffusion is not just physical. Diffusion is spiritual. Spiritual energy waves circulate by diffusion. By this then we know the high concentration of harmful spiritual energy in the human race will be re-balanced by any means of diffusion necessary in order to overcome all the means of confusion being used to try to make sickness great again.
No greatness, good or bad, can withstand the advancement of diffusion. Osmosis is Cosmosis and Cosmosis is Diffusion. Diffusion is Different Fusions trying to work out the dynamics of diversity so life has no conclusion.
