RIP OR CRUNCH Most think the universe will Rip, some few think Crunch. Dark Energy is gaining grip. It’s most unlikely things will flip. Gravity’s always lacked the punch to stop the matter expanding, but whether it goes crunch or rip, there’s no such thing as a free lunch. Many should recognize this as […]Read more "RIP or CRUNCH"
PONDEROUS PUNDIT In the future, there’s a scientist who arrives at what is ultimately true, but, since the only way to share his view is to bore his listeners through and through with lectures that lull to literal sleep before he completes his explanations, the concepts he conveys will have to keep, since he […]Read more "PONDEROUS PUNDIT"
FIRST APPEARANCE In memoriam Robert Sheckley reflected in glass a commonplace human, startling at first he’d fit in, he knew Earth’s sentient forms blinded by expectations Trying to gropple in this restricted body, settled for a grin. I was very happy to have this tribute to one of my favorite writers and all time […]Read more "First Appearance"
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"
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"
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"
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"
OFF THE SCALE 🎧 The young lady known simply as Bright, who could travel speeds faster than light, said, “While I’m never late, I’m concerned that my weight reaches infinite mass, though I’m slight.”Read more "OFF THE SCALE"
