Coder, software architect, interest in computer science in general. Did research on computer graphics, ray tracing, radio wave and antenna simulation. Like to learn new programming languages. Currently doing Python and Emacs Lisp for fun. C++ for profit. Would like to learn more Clojure.

comment Is there a natural process by which hydrogen is generated from heavier elements in the cosmos?
Motion is relative. Maybe there'll be other protons / hydrogen atoms moving in the same direction with the same speed... I think the entropy argument from the other answer is best. The universe is just simply going to shreds -- very slowly...

comment Is there a natural process by which hydrogen is generated from heavier elements in the cosmos?
Wikipedia says about protons in nuclear decay: »Shortly after the discovery of the neutron in 1932, Enrico Fermi realized that certain rare beta-decay reactions immediately yield neutrons as a decay particle (neutron emission). Isolated proton emission was eventually observed in some elements.«

comment Why do black holes have jets and accretion disks?
I have very little understanding of black holes, but maybe the accretion disk is another effect produced by the conservation of angular momentum? Just like Protoplanetary disks, galaxies and so on.
