Quantum suicide and immortality

But for the first time, quantum physicist Seth Lloyd of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology suggests that memories of entanglement can survive its destruction. He compares the effect to Emily Brontë’s novel Wuthering Heights: “the spectral Catherine communicates with her … Continue reading

Numerical Relativity and the Human Experience?

“I’m a Platonist — a follower of Plato — who believes that one didn’t invent these sorts of things, that one discovers them. In a sense, all these mathematical facts are right there waiting to be discovered.”Donald (H. S. M.) … Continue reading

Bee Movie and Science Today

Bee of Backreaction was highlighting the Dimensional perspective of the way we are going to see Dream Works animation developing new movies. See “DreamWorks goes Extra Dimensional.“ I thought it important that I reveal the coincidence of the story I … Continue reading

Lisa Randall’s Theoretical Insights

The picture above was shown because of another picture in which I thought deserved comparison. The reason for this, would help the mind understand how such an image could be explained in a “easy and suttle way?” So look at … Continue reading

Computer Language and Math Joined from Artistic Impressionism?

Most people think of “seeing” and “observing” directly with their senses. But for physicists, these words refer to much more indirect measurements involving a train of theoretical logic by which we can interpret what is “seen.”- Lisa Randall Cubist Art: … Continue reading

Mathematical Models

“Backwards” might mean, from a “5d understanding” to a three dimensional fabrication. You had to understand how the 5d world is explained here, before judgement is cast. While I would like nothing more then to cater to the struggles of … Continue reading

Point–> Line–>Plane <—> Point<– String<– Brane

Under the heading of Klein`s Ordering of the Geometries : A theorem which is valid for a geometry in this sequence is automatically valid for the ones that follow. The theorems of projective geometry are automatically valid theorems of Euclidean … Continue reading

UV Fixed Point

Clifford draws our attention to further talks here in his post and directs us to what Jacque Distler has to say. I must say this is a refreshing look with Jacques contribution to further the layman point of view. Such … Continue reading

The Black Hole Final State

Mathematics is not the rigid and rigidity-producing schema that the layman thinks it is; rather, in it we find ourselves at that meeting point of constraint and freedom that is the very essence of human nature. – Hermann Weyl It … Continue reading

For me this is a wonderful view of abstraction, that had gone into model making, to help those less inclined to “the visonistic qualities of those same abstractions.” Shown here are the models in the mathematical wunderkammer located in the … Continue reading
