WHY this blog?

Inspire kids to become scientists by saying that….. I wonder if scientific speculations on COSMOS, LIFE and CONSCIOUSNESS can be a form of mass entertainment. After all, spending an entire life asking no existential question is like enjoying a picnic blindfolded. Isn’t life a picnic in space? …………………………………….. ………………………………………… “We Continue Reading

Quantum Mechanics

…………………………………….. ………………………………………… We can’t expect a better interpretation of quantum mechanics at the cost of classical realism. ………………………………………… As individual quantum systems, particles appear to scatter off empty branches of the wave-function, and conversely travel through particles as if they were waves. ………………………………………… Geo-centrism was dismissed by the Copernican revolution; Continue Reading

Replicator

………………………………………… ………………………………………… ………………………………………… When replication hosts  some existentially self-amplifying copying errors, it is called ‘evolution’. ………………………………………… A replicator is anything that gets, directly or indirectly, copied. ………………………………………… Survival of the fittest amounts to survival of the best replicating mechanism. It has nothing to do with strength, agility, longevity, happiness  or Continue Reading

Spin

Inspire kids to become scientists by saying that…..…………………………………………………………………………………… ………………………………………… An individual atom’s quantum spin is its electrons’ net spin. ………………………………………… An individual atom’s spin on a surface can be used as qubits for quantum computer. ………………………………………… Physicists can modify  interactions between pairs of atoms by controlling the position of  qubits.…………………………………………Classical Continue Reading

Religion

Inspire kids to become scientists by saying that…..……………………………………………………………………………….. …………………………………….. ………………………………………… ………………………………………… “Life and Reality are not things you can have for yourself unless you accord them to all others. They do not belong to particular persons any more than the sun, moon and stars.”-Alan Watts ………………………………………… Reality is whatever exists Continue Reading

Cruelty

Inspire kids to become scientists by saying that…..…………………………………………………………………………………… ………………………………………… ………………………………………… Our instinctive virtues and vices are actually autonomous algorithms (mechanistically blind evolutionary plugins) that help us survive in brutally   indifferent Darwinian struggle. …………………………………………

Jealousy

Thing

Inspire kids to become scientists by saying that…..………………………………………… ………………………………………… ………………………………………… Ancients lived happily without caring  about atoms. But the knowledge of atoms has given us everything from steel to data  chips. ………………………………………… …………………………………….. Fields  in QFT determine how many fundamental particles (with spin between 0 and 1, inclusive) there are, Continue Reading

Extraterrestrial

Inspire kids to become scientists by saying that….. ………………………………………… According to Stephen Hawking, it may be the end of human freedom if we ever come into contact with intelligent aliens. ………………………………………… Even extraterrestrial life elsewhere in the universe must be self-replicating, information carrying arrangements of molecules. ………………………………………… Non-humans survive without Continue Reading

Observer

Inspire kids to become scientists by saying that…..………………………………………… Quantummechanically, ‘higher probabilities’ / ‘pointer states’ asymptomatically approach to taking on classicality or observed ‘REALITY’. Since things don’t exist until we measure , Heisenberg’s uncertainty might play the role of the fundamental observer in the form of variated densities of ‘quantumness’. ………………………………………… Continue Reading
