Catch As Cat Can Due to quantum flux in which it is caught, Schrödinger’s cat’s both still and a breather. Something that has to be either or not can also be both while it is neither. The observer is the important part, determining the final feline fate. By measurement, there beats a feline heart. By […]Read more "Catch As Cat Cat"
(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"
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 […]Read more "Quark Of Fate"
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"
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"
SCIENTIFIC TESTAMENT A scientist trusts in what has been proved through repeated experimentation. Assertions of faith will leave him unmoved until they have achieved validation. Religious beliefs often leave him cold and skeptical of professed prophecies based mostly on hearsay and tales twice-told, not carefully tested hypotheses. This doesn’t make him an atheist, though. […]Read more "Scientific Testament"
“I do not see how a man can work on the frontiers of physics and write poetry at the same time. They are in opposition.”
– Paul Dirac to Robert Oppenheimer
“You forgot that science has evolved from poetry, and failed to see that a change of times might beneficently reunite the two as friends, at a higher level and to mutual advantage.”
— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
