THE SHEER POWER OF LIGHT AND THOUGHT Regard the radiometer – a toy as well as scientific instrument, a vacuum bulb with racing flags inside, an inverse top that spins with endless joy and makes the photon’s power evident with one absorbing, one reflecting side. Requiring no battery or plug, the particle-waves providing power […]Read more "THE SHEER POWER OF LIGHT AND THOUGHT"
POTENTIAL ROAD KILL We’ve grown beyond our own biology. Natures’ slow process of evolution cannot keep pace with our technology but needs generations for solution. As we refine our new machinery, We redefine the world and way we live. We redesign our planet’s greenery, and undermine a balance tentative – the tipping point that we […]Read more "POTENTIAL ROAD KILL"
THE UNIVERSE IS IN PERFECT HEALTH A team of international scientists used several of the world’s most powerful telescopes to perform the most comprehensive assessment of the energy output in the nearby universe, concluding that today’s produced energy is only about half of what it was two billion years-ago and prompting claims that the universe […]Read more "THE UNIVERSE IS IN PERFECT HEALTH"
One of four discovered (in 1610) by Galileo, Europa is the smallest of the Galilean moons, but still larger than Pluto. It is very bright because it is entirely covered in ice. When Zeus (Jupiter) raped Europa, he “abducted” her in the form of a white bull. In the above collage, you can see the […]Read more "Life In Europa"
“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
FINE-TUNED FOR LIFE Ours is the perfect universe, it seems, for forming atoms that will let suns burn. Anthropically, there are few other schemes to give such a magnificent return. The arbitrary masses we’ve discerned for subatomic particles create a balance of the forces, we have learned, whereby life is allowed to generate. Change any […]Read more "Fine-Tuned For Life"
