FLEEING FROM THE PAST Big- Bang, it’s dubbed, but the start of our universe is more like an un-popped bubble expanding forever faster and ever faster fleeing from the only edge time’s arrow insists upon and the only edge allowed.Read more "FLEEING FROM THE PAST"
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. […]Read more "THE IMAGINARY ABSOLUTE"
COSMIC RECALCULATION — to Dr. Wendy L. Freedman In the cosmos, a crisis brews today, regarding the standard model that’s held. “Things expand too fast,” astronomers say, “The Hubble constant is being excelled. “We’ve graphed predictions and made a table, but Expansion’s chosen another path. Unfortunately, we are unable to force Creation to […]Read more "COSMIC RECALCULATION"
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 – […]Read more "DARK DRIVER"
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, […]Read more "RIGGED FOR SUCCESS"
(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 […]Read more "ENERGETIC EVENTS"
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 […]Read more "Fashion’s Model"
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"
AT ODDS Researchers seeking solutions can’t say, “Things are the way they are because of God.” From Spirit, scientists must shy away or risk their labors be seen as slipshod. The fraction of them considered devout must keep their studies apart from belief, not daring to proselytize about what brings their natures comfort and […]Read more "At Odds"
