Our science teachers should expose our kids to all the  fascinating ideas (emerging from current scientific researches) solely for the sake of sparking imagination. We need scientists for the survival of our species in an indifferent , mechanical universe.

You often feel tired, not because you’ve done too much, but because you’ve done too little of what sparks a light in you. ” ― Anonymous

“Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion. ” ― Rumi

“The happiest people don’t have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything. ” ― Anonymous

“Just as there is no loss of basic energy in the universe, so no thought or action is without its effects, present or ultimate, seen or unseen, felt or unfelt. ” ― Norman Cousins

……………………………………..

Science fingers at our unlimited ignorance.
……………………………………..
To properly understand and explain the world, we need scientific methods.
……………………………………..
Atomic theory is the most useful scientific theory.
……………………………………..

General relativity is the most beautiful scientific theory.
…………………………………….
Quantum mechanics is the strangest scientific theory.

……………………………………..

While general relativity is the cutest, quantum mechanics is the strangest.
……………………………………..

It is an intellectual bliss to try to wonder about our very existence in the light of modern scientific theories like general relativity and quantum mechanics.
……………………………………..
People should accept science as an
integral and vital aspect of our culture.

……………………………………..

Young Einstein dared to waste time by reading Kant and attending University lectures only for pleasure. After a few years, he wrote three separate articles laying foundations for most useful(atomic theory), most beautiful (relativity)and most unworldly(quantum mechanics) scientific  theories.

“Literally the stuff of which we’re made came from the deep interior of stars that exploded, and we evolved by the very same laws and rules that the rest of the universe evolves by.” – Brian Greene

…………………………………………

“The atoms of our bodies are traceable to stars that manufactured them in their cores and exploded these enriched ingredients across our galaxy, billions of years ago. For this reason, we are biologically connected to every other living thing in the world. We are chemically connected to all molecules on Earth. And we are atomically connected to all atoms in the universe. We are not figuratively, but literally stardust.”
– Neil deGrasse Tyson

Many huge balls circle and roll in the vacuum of space — and we live on one of them.
…………………………………………
Our earth is a rocky ball circling around a gaseous ball (Sun).

…………………………………………
Planets, moons, stars, asteroids and black holes are all gaseous or stony balls.

“A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe’; a part limited in time and space. They experience themselves, their thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest — a kind of optical delusion of consciousness.

This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and affection for a few persons nearest us.
Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

Nobody is able to achieve this completely but striving for such achievement is, in itself, a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.”
– Albert Einstein

“What this passage reveals is a conversion from personal religion to the ‘cosmic religion’ of science, an experience which changed him for the rest of his life. Einstein saw that the universe is governed by laws that can be known by us but that are independent of our thoughts and feelings…………..The existence of this cosmic code — the laws of material reality as confirmed by experience — is the bedrock faith that moves the natural scientist. The scientist sees in that code the eternal structure of reality, not as imposed by man or tradition but as written into the very substance of the universe. This recognition of the nature of the universe can come as a profound and moving experience to the young mind.”
-Heinz Pagels

‘I am the wisest man in the world, for I know I know nothing.’
– Socrates

A tiny part of a huge stone suddenly got cut off and acquired ‘thinking power’. The fragment began to wonder why they both existed at all.
A man is a fragment. The universe is a huge stone. When the fragment knows about the bigger stone, it actually knows about its own ‘larger identity’.

Our fate is to adjust to three  reactions to the mysterious cage called ‘existence’. To some extent, we hate it like a curse . To some extent, we  love it as a blessing . To some extent, we challenge it as a riddle. This challenge is officially called ‘science’.
—————————————–
—————————————–
A physics book isn’t an instruction manual for nature.
—————————————–
A physics book contains just our best guesses about how nature works.
—————————————–
We don’t know why we’re here or why anything exists at all .
—————————————–
If this moment seems boring to you, just think how many bizarre(our scientists still don’t know exactly how causation emerges) phenomena have made it possible .
—————————————–
If you like riddles, look at the whole of existence from a distance. Why we exist at all is the greatest riddle shrouded in still undefined knowledges of physics, mathematics and biology.

Reality is stranger than fiction. Cutting edge scientific ansatzs are queerer than our weirdest fairy tales and can boost our kids’ imaginative power.

……………………………………..
Biological evolution explains diversification of plants and animals by variation and natural selection. The origin of life is still UNKNOWN. Perhaps life started as a chemical system.

Cosmological evolution explains the formation of galaxies, stars or planets by an expanding big bang model of our universe. The origin of the universe is still UNKNOWN. Perhaps our universe started as a quantum system.

“Humanity as an abstract doesn’t exist; humanity is the human being.”
Eckhart Tolle
…………………………………………
“You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe, an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself. What an amazing miracle!”

Eckhart Tolle

“On a deeper level you are already complete. When you realize that, there is a joyous energy behind what you do.”
Eckhart Tolle

“The Truth is far more powerful than any weapon of mass destruction.”

    “Life is an adventure, it’s not a package tour.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

……………………………………..

“Most people treat the present moment as if it were an obstacle that they need to overcome. Since the present moment is life itself, it is an insane way to live.”

Eckhart Tolle

“Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion.”

Eckhart Tolle

Even before finishing his High School study Zurek read “The Feynman Lectures in Physics”.

From Kepler, Newton learned that our fundamental existential riddles can be solved using measuring instruments as well as mathematical reasoning to the data.

…………………………………………
From Galileo, Newton learned that our most important duty is to discover the relationships in nature using logic.
…………………………………………

From Descartes, Newton learned that it is always possible to discover the underlying mechanical laws to explain the phenomenon.
