If explanation is desired, a “bit” is anything with two choices (such as alive or dead, on or off, etc.) and is therefore binary (either/or). Of course, in the quantum world this binary distinction breaks down when unobserved and can become both and neither, simultaneously, until measurement (observation) occurs. Schrödinger‘s Outcome Schrödinger reduced his […]Read more "Schrödinger‘s Outcome"
Poetry and Science Science tries to answer some great questions, in fact the greatest questions of our day. At very least, it offers suggestions for how to frame these questions, anyway. This role is one that poets, too, have played. Both correlate their data to convey their particular premise and persuade, or at least to […]Read more "Poetry And Science"
UNPUBLISHED FINDINGS They granulate the universe to pulp, crashing particles only newly found. They figure their trajectories and gulp, “So much data upon which to expound!” Their energies unbound by quantum course, they separate the world we think we know. They rip particles into force by force. Unification’s where they say they’ll go. At last, […]Read more "Unpublished Findings"
CAN’T DIS CERN Take two Swiss clocks, Swiss for their precision; accelerate them near the speed of light; steer them into a direct collision to smash them with all available might. Splinter their casings and dislodge their gears, and, like they were some vogue, hotsy-totsy starlet involved in political smears, quick-snap pictures like the paparazzi. […]Read more "Can’t Dis CERN"
