Sacks Spiral

Dyson, one of the most highly-regarded scientists of his time, poignantly informed the young man that his findings into the distribution of prime numbers corresponded with the spacing and distribution of energy levels of a higher-ordered quantum state. Mathematics Problem … Continue reading

The Founder of Probabilty Theory?

I want to understand what makes the world tick. Einstein said he wanted to know what was on God’s mind when he made the world. I don’t think he was a religious man, but I know what he means.Lenny Susskind … Continue reading

Images or Numbers By Themself

“Mathematicians have tried in vain to this day to discover some order in the sequence of prime numbers, and we have reason to believe that it is a mystery into which the mind will never penetrate” (cited by Ivars Peterson … Continue reading

Symmetries Can be Chaotically Complex

Imagine in an “action of a kind” you start off from one place. A photon travelling through a slit of Thomas Young’s, to get through “a world” to the other side. Sounds like some fairy tale doesn’t it? Yet, “the … Continue reading
