THE IMAGINARY ABSOLUTE

THE IMAGINARY ABSOLUTE Gustav Köln was a physicist for life. His work had been all that mattered to him, but he had recently taken a wife –
a dedicated co-worker named Kim.             She’d always been worshipfully supportive to scientific quests and inquiry, but she had turned quite clearly abortive
 on what was his big opportunity. […]

DARK DRIVER

DARK DRIVER What was there to slow cosmic inflation, which occurred shortly after the Big Bang? Nothing obstructed this fomentation, which from an infinitely dense point sprang. The claim is expansion somehow reduced its speed, the second after Creation, (yet, through observation, it’s been deduced there’s still light-speed-limit violation). As though this were viewed – […]

RIGGED FOR SUCCESS

There’s a philosophical anecdote that’s relevant to physicists today: One must stay afloat and rebuild the boat when, out at sea, safe harbor’s far away. The cargo is loaded, voyage begun, and progress made can’t be abandoned now,                                    […]

ENERGETIC EVENTS

(Wait for it …) ENERGETIC EVENTS   Quarks flee bondage from gluons in forced collisions and matter annihilation. One good thing about nature is that there’s lots of it. This poem is the more standard fibonacci form, in the line syllable sequence: 1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 13 […]

Fashion’s Model

  FASHION’S MODEL   The atom as a miniature solar system is a model we’ve abandoned for a century, yet we still picture it thus. The form of this poem is a reverse fibonacci.  Like the Fibonacci sequence, you get the number of syllables for each line by adding the the number of syllables of […]

Quark Of Fate

  Press play then scroll along QUARK OF FATE Since we ourselves learned how to create, we’ve pondered our night sky’s creation. “Twinkle, Twinkle,” was the song we sang,   till Science showed stars are condensate of dust and background radiation from the silent light of the Big Bang.   We thought their motions controlled […]

Schrödinger‘s Outcome

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 […]

Unpublished Findings

UNPUBLISHED FINDINGS They granulate the universe to pulp, crashing particles only newly found.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, […]

Can’t Dis CERN

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. […]

Unmeasured

The lone quantum bit, unlike Frost, chooses both paths – interferes with self.   The literary reference in this haiku is to Robert Frost’s poem: The Road Not Taken Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as […]
