Let's deal with inside to the membrane/dome/ice.
Then clearly explain what is acting on each layer of air to push it down, such that the force increases. Again, we know it isn't just the air above. If that was all then it would have a constant pressure.

As per his own admittance - you cant push a spring (or a stack of sponges) down into the foundation without a hand or "something" on top pushing down.
Without a foundation.
The foundation wasn't the issue, it was the absence of something pushing it down.
You can't push a spring down without something to push it down. The spring doesn't just push itself.

If you want to play with weight then you have to measure each object that displaces atmosphere. Meaning each strand of fur or hair or any object.
Not unless you can tell us how the air manages to push the object below down.
Otherwise we deal with an entire vertical column.

The sponges at the top are not under compression.
They are but to us it's so minimal as to merit a back seat in order to explain.
If you want to take that pyramid as it is, then we deal with it as it is.
We don't need to deal with what is above the pyramid or dome.
Learn to deal with analogies and try not to set yourself back, every time.

There is nothing pushing on the top sponges as per his diagram.
Anything attached will be used as  leverage or resistance...and so on and so on and so on, whether it's super dense....bottom to super expanded at the top.

Without a foundation.
Try not to set yourself back all of the time.

We seem to have gotten away from the foam-weight analogy video.
If the weight were furry, the fur between the weight and the foam would be compressed.
What weight?
It's displacement at this point.

Flipping this image around - it goes to show my hair, sticking up, reasons that air is not pushing me down.
Foundation. Think about it.

I don't drink.

That's the right decision. No wonder you are one of the most logical people here.

(no offense to others)

No offense taken, that I am not part of the logical group of you and Mikey is of course a blow, and I must admit that I thought the conclusions you both reached were done so on vast amounts of alcohol.

Something has to be pushing down the top of the stack. Otherwise the stack would just sit there not moving in any direction. That's why I asked what's above the stack. So is the membrane pushing down on the stack, whether it's the membrane itself or something above the membrane pushing down on it which, in turn, pushes down on the stack?
I would imagine there will be more resistance to outside Earth fluid of some description, or even ice in whatever form.
Everything is attached so we will not be just floating about in nothingness as you people believe.

So the secret to was causes the stack to push down is that there is something unknown outside of the membrane that is pushing the membrane down and the membrane is then pushing down on the stack?
Let's deal with inside to the membrane/dome/ice.

I used to have a neighbor who said "it's not the bullet that kills you, it's the velocity".
Thats just wrong, from a physics point of view.

Here you go...



Can sceppy address this photo and let us know if his understanding of "curving up" changed?

It's been more than a year since boydster went jerky mad. I wonder if he ate all of it.

Anyway to all you cooking nerds, the internet archives now has 10,000 historic cookbooks available https://mymodernmet.com/historic-cookbooks-recipes-archive/

Those look wonderful because they don't have stories that are 2 pages long before the recipe. I'm in the store to see how to make something, to see if I have all of the ingredients and I have to read about somebody's grandparents before I find them.
