Moving Towards Simplicity

“I Really Appreciate Science. Technology and Cute Experiments are Cool, too!” – in my second installment I would summarize how our physical understanding is moving towards simplicity by eliminating the need for purpose. Now, we move even further towards it by eliminating the need to impose laws and rules. Things happen as they do, laws and rules are like “Facebook status updates” on their behavior and character. Take classical physics as exemplified by Newton’s Laws of Motions. The mind numbing “common sense” of Newton’s Laws actually conceal their incomprehensibility, except as “Facebook status updates” and a way to calculate outcomes. When they are inspected, their explanations fall apart, and are seen to be illusory, like 3D animation.
