THEORISTS A percentage of people can see Our existence in more than 3-D, but they seldom mention such extra dimension, apart from mathematically.Read more "THEORISTS"
DILEMMA Faith is often blind, and that seems tragic. It drops to its knees, humble and devout. Science’s problem is lack of magic. It can’t accept the mystical throughout. Each sees light stream through a prism of glass. The pious think of stained glass and God’s bliss, and all but simplicity they let pass. […]Read more "Dilemma"
INTELLECT AND CONVICTION Einstein was brilliant, we all can agree. He opened up new possibility – the Theory of Relativity he worked out, questing for simplicity. His equation, E=mc2, is a well-accepted reality; there’s no doubt about how well it has fared in destruction and practicality. Though people know this, most don’t understand the […]Read more "Intellect and Conviction"
UNPUBLISHED FINDINGS They granulate the universe to pulp, crashing particles only newly found.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 At last, […]Read more "Unpublished Findings"
“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
UNIQUE PARAMETERS There is only one answer to creation. Though we don’t nearly understand it yet, there’s but one elegant variation emerging from initial values set that even allows molecules to be, much less achieve complexity of life, or suns to burn their planets distantly with not too much but with the needed strife. […]Read more "Unique Parameters"
SUITED TO THE EQUATION The Universe reflects itself in universal parity — the ultimate kaleidoscope… symmetric similarity. Matter mirrors antimatter, so why shouldn’t every part on down to sub-atomic scale have an echoing counterpart? This premise fuels the current hope, that this elegance will be found. Reality should follow suit from mathematics that […]Read more "Suited To The Equation"
THEORY OF EVERYTHING Researchers assume they can trust their GUT – that is their Grand Unified Theory. This simple answer is close, they think, but the resolution’s still a bit bleary. They’ve linked electromagnetic with weak, on their way to full unification but, for final culmination, must seek the gravity of the situation. […]Read more "Theory Of Everything"
STRINGS ATTACHED Physicists foresee a utopia (once they squint through micro-myopia) where all of the forces of nature should become unified and be understood. Even in science, letting go is hard, and notions are the hardest to divorce, but, to reach there, they’ll have to discard their classical point-particles of force. While Newton works […]Read more "Strings Attached"
