The quantization of space

Quantum mechanics defines our observable physical environment only in terms of the probabilistic values associated with Schrödinger’s wave equation. More specifically it defines a particle in terms of the instantaneous collapse of a wave function which it assumes extends form one edge of the universe to the other. Schrodinger Equation and Material Waves However this […]

Should we allow imagination to define physics?

Should we let imagination define our reality?  If so how much should we allow science to dependent on it? Most if not all explanatory models of reality rely to some extent on ones imagination because they use unobservable quantities to support them.   "IMAGINATION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN KNOWLEDGE" For example Einstein used the concept […]

Time travel: is it possible?

Is time travel possible? The laws of physics in the microscopic world suggest that it is because the physical processes they define at the subatomic level appear to be either entirely or mostly time symmetric.  In other words the theoretical statements that describe them remain true if the direction of time is reversed.  However, the […]

Astrophysicist: “A vibrant scientific culture encourages many interpretations of evidence”

From Avi Loeb at Nature, on the achievements and limitations of Mayan astronomy: So why, I wondered, didn’t the Mayans go further and infer aspects of our modern understanding of astronomy? They determined the orbital periods of Venus, Mars and Mercury around the Sun, but Earth was at the centre of their Universe. I came […]

Darwinism validated not by evidence but “by simplistic games models borrowed from 1940s economics”

From John Hands at Science Focus: At a landmark international conference recently [7-9 November] organised by the Royal Society and the British Academy, several speakers called for a revision of the theory of biological evolution that has been largely unquestioned in the UK and the USA for around 70 years. This paradigm – a combination […]
