Orthodox quantum mechanics

………………………………………… According to Leibniz’s indiscernible principle, two numerically distinct  objects can’t share all their properties in common. It is Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle in disguise. It again reminds us that science is nothing but  ‘natural philosophy in a new package’. …………………………………………. Fundamentally ‘identical’ things in the same state of motion are Continue Reading

Relativity

…………………………………………Einstein’s general relativity best describes how gravity operates. ………………………………………… In Einstein’s  general relativity, space and time are merged together into a unified framework (space-time). This space-time isn’t a  fixed stage-like background. It is dynamic enough to bend and stretch in response to the presence of matter and energy. …………………………………………In Einstein’s Continue Reading

Axion

………………………………………… The axion is a sort of photon, but with just a tint of mass. ………………………………………… Since WIMP (weakly interacting massive particle) experiments have come  empty-handed, most (6-to-1) of the universe’s mass might paradoxically come in the form of “axion” particles billions of times lighter than the electron. ………………………………………… ………………………………………… Continue Reading

Humility

………………………………………… Humility is the opposite of humiliation. ………………………………………… Humility empowers us while humiliation leaves us powerless. ………………………………………… There is no polarity between culture and nature. Culture is actually nature tended and cultivated by one of nature’s products called man. ………………………………………… Language isn’t an artificial  layer over reality but the natural Continue Reading

………………………………………… Universe  =  10^80 atom ………………………………………… Universe  =  change ( physical  ➕  chemical  ➕  nuclear ) ………………………………………… Life = change (  physical ➕ chemical ) ………………………………………… Nothingness =  Matter    ➕   Gravity ……………………………………….. Matter = positive potential   Gravity  =  negative potential ………………………………………… Massive = stars, planets, galaxies, universe (Gravity or 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. …………………………………………
