Fractal

Chaos   The clockwork Newtonian world recedes in the intellectual horizon. Its time at the frontiers of our science and intuition has come to an end, the gradual rise of a new science has already begun. The seemingly orderly universe which we encounter every second is more liberal than what we thought, instead of being completely predictable and deterministic ¬†nature is unpredictable and chaotic. Does this mean Newton’s laws of motion and all the work derived from them are useless? Shall we hammer out our…Continue Reading “Nature and disorder: Chaos theory”

“Physics is to math what sex is to masturbation.” – Richard Feynman   The first quote on the Albert Einstein article was much more eloquent than this, though it does not contain more insight. Anyway who needs eloquence and fancy words, they are of no use and they just complicate everything. Feynman thought this way, he didn’t like liars or boasters or anyone who thought they were better than anyone else. Even with his fantastic insights: mathematical, scientific and about life in general, Feynman did…Continue Reading “Worlds Greatest Brains: Richard Feynman”

“Yes, we have to divide up our time like that, between our politics and our equations. But to me our equations are far more important, for politics are only a matter of present concern. A mathematical equation stands forever.”   This philosophy was embedded in Einstein’s life. He spent most of his time as a physicist reveling in thought experiments and solving new and prevailing problems in physics, hoping that his solutions will be imprinted into the eternal rulebook of reality. At many moments of…Continue Reading “Worlds Greatest Brains: Albert Einstein”

Curious Cat

Curiosity is the very basis of education and if you tell me that curiosity killed the cat, I say only the cat died nobly. – Arnold Edinborough A toddler plays, messes with stuff and generally ventures into those places which are quirky, new or just dangerous. That is what you have to learn to do again. I don’t expect you to buy toys from ‘toys ‘r’ us’ or play in the puddles whilst walking to the shop. What I mean is simple. Start playing with…Continue Reading “Being childish will unleash your intelligence”

electron-is-spherical

J.J Thomson discovered the Electron through an experiment which was an attempt to determine the specific charge of cathode rays. Cathode rays move from a negatively charge plate (cathode) to a positively charged plate (anode) when an electric discharge is passed through a gas at low pressure. Thomson found that the charge found in the rays did not depend on the nature of the gas or on the electrode material, suggesting that the ‘rays’ were composed of previously¬†unknown¬†particles which are fundamental to the constituents of…Continue Reading “The electron is the most voluptuous particle”
