Photons Alone

"QED" , the short popular text by Richard Feynman was published 30 years ago. Yet, we still hear the literate public talk about the "wave-particle duality" of light as if that is part of 21st Century quantum theory. Rather, it is this out-dated concept, acting like a dogmatic religion, that will demonstrate itself to be …

Multiverse? What is verifiable today.

What is scientifically verifiable is the 4-dimensional space-time continuum we inhabit; the arrow of time; entropy; an evolving universe whose past we can continue to explore with high-energy experiments and space-based observation platforms... => 'Theories of Anything' is not science Theories of Anything (2014) Dr. Paul J. Steinhardt Albert Einstein Professor in Science, Departments of Physics …

Richness with Simplicity

"I Really Appreciate Science. Technology and Cute Experiments are Cool, too!" In this somewhat final installment to the outline, I will make it brief. We are still in the realm of rational speculation in all of this commentary. Energy and matter are not complex. With the fluctuations towards a stable, but not too stable universe …

The Knotty Question of Matter

"I Really Appreciate Science. Technology and Cute Experiments are Cool, too!" - I will lay out what would be the sixth installment to the website. Looking at Einstein's relatively simple equation equating Energy to Matter and mass, E=Mc^2, we saw that the speed of light is really the proportionality constant between the space dimensions and …

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 …

First Light

"I Really Appreciate Science. Technology and Cute Experiments are Cool, too!" - this would be the name of the website I want to start. The first installment would be: The nature of evolution can be regarded as cooperative dissipation of energy. Every stage of evolution, including the steps that gave rise to molecules, to people …
