How is this the "fifth state of matter?"

Because a substance in this state has different properties than solid, liquid, gas, plasma, or superfluid (which it thought was a state of matter).

Matter is cooled to the point that atoms delineate into bosons and distribute themselves evenly throughout a plane.

So, you have:

Boiling

Gas (loosely distributed atoms)
Liquid (more tightly distributed atoms)
Solid (very tightly distributed atoms, often arranged in complex structures)
Gas (highly volatile energy hungry loosely dispersed atoms)
B-E Condensate (atoms so loosely dispersed, they are no longer atoms, but instead freely arranged in an even structure and reflecting the same amount of energy)

Absolute Zero

This is also called Bose-Einstein state, right? Or am I horribly mistaken?

lol, you are kind of correct. It is the state of matter known as Bose-Einstein condensate.

No, he is correct. Lol.

But, I can understand the misnomer, as the Bose-Einstein condensate is comprised of Bosons.

Unfortunately, it discredits the other scientist who discovered it.

I'm just realizing the spelling errors in the title. lol Bose-Einstein Condensate is the correct name.
Thanks, Ren.

It is called Bose–Einstein condensate, and it was first predicted by Satyendra Nath Bose and Albert Einstein in 1924. In this state, atoms cease to have distinction between each other and form one "super atom." Perhaps a sign of things to come at the end of time!

It's funny that hotter things resemble the earlier universe (past) and cooler things resemble the later universe (future) as well as the extremes of the 2 types of order!
