*Question* Mar. 21st, 2009 @ 11:55 am

What happens when an unstoppable force meets with an unmovable object?

‘They’ like to say that the matter \/ anti-matter conversion rate is always equal to 1:1... But it wont make it true until it has been proven, and from a certain perspective, this will never happen. From a certain perspective, matter \/ anti-matter conversion is equal and identical to Zero (0). This is of course the most efficient way to make nothing from something.

If gravity is the unstoppable force then what is the unmovable object?

I like playing ring around the roses with the universe and mankind! can we hold hands a little tighter? I’m going to start going fast… real fast. Catch my green gravity apples while holding hands with the two of us if you can!

It’s not like any of us anywhere and at anytime has a choice in this ‘matter’… Isn’t gravity a son of a bitch?

Now I want to split a dollar bill three ways!

"No time to say hello, goodby! I'm late, I'm late, I'm late!" Dec. 18th, 2008 @ 06:57 pm


"Why, in my world...
Cats and rabbits, would reside in fancy little houses,
and be dressed in shoes and hats and trousers.
In a world of my own.
All the flowers would have very extra special powers,
they would sit and talk to me for hours,
when I'm lonely in a world of my own.
There'd be new birds, lots of nice and friendly how-de-do birds,
everyone would have a dozen bluebirds,
within that world of my own.
I could listen to a babbling brook and hear a song,
that I could understand.
I keep wishing it could be that way,
because my world would be a wonderland.

Dinah: Meow! Meow! Meow!

Alice: Oh Dinah! Its just a rabbit with a waistcoat... and a watch!

White Rabbit: Oh my fur and whiskers! I'm late, I'm late I'm late!

Alice: Now this is curious! What could a rabbit possibly be late for? Please, sir!

White Rabbit: I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date! No time to say hello, goodbye! I'm late, I'm late, I'm late!

Alice: It must be awfully important, like a party or something! Mister Rabbit! Wait!

White Rabbit: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, I'm overdue. I'm really in a stew. No time to say goodbye, hello! I'm late, I'm late, I'm late! "

hi, i'm new. name's danielle. i guess i joined because i'm fascinated, and also a little terrified, of the string theory. i've started to read The Elegant Universe by brian greene. i understand everything that i'm told, science is not my best subject, i hardly passed physical science and i've never taken physics. i find it a hard thing to waft through, because its so incredibly heavy. i never knew anything about quantum physics until i spent one night with a friend of mine on Ex and he showed me a few things on the internet.

anyway, i guess that's my short bio intro story. i'm interested in finding out more through other sources, i'm just a rookie and i don't know where i would love for the answers i'm looking for. so, i'm hoping this place can be useful.

I'm new to this community AND I have a great idea... Oct. 4th, 2007 @ 09:08 pm
    Hello everyone. I don't feel like divulging in details about my personality. I have this FANTASTIC idea that I'd like to tell everyone, just to see what kinds of reactions I get.

    Two years ago, a friend and I came up with this crazy idea that seems kind of obvious to those of us interested in Quantum mechanics. I want to start an actual Quantum Cafe. I'd rather not give away all of the details over the internet simply because this is my thing. I want to make money off of this. Just know that this quantum cafe will have most of the anomalies described in Brian Greene's "The Elegant Universe." Ordering a drink but not getting what you want, weird things happening, along with some original ideas that have nothing to do with quantum physics but are quirky and fun anyway are part of the make-up of this cafe. I've done a lot of thinking. It is essentially a Chuck-E-Cheese for adults. . . . minus the strippers.
    The main question I wanted to ask all of you is where would I put something like this? I mean, I couldn't just have a regular city to set myself in. It'd have to be in Silicon Valley or . . . MIT or something, right? Right? Boring drones (normal people) don't read up on cool stuff like this. The business would suffer. So where would it go?

    I'd also like to know if anyone has some ideas they'd like to lay down for me. I've got so many possibilities for this, but clear thoughts from someone else who knows a lot about quantum mechanics would be encouraged. If anyone has ever been to the Safehouse (Milwaukee... woooo!!), it's a spy themed restaurant with a "front" which means that the front window on the main street to make it look like no one is ever in there. The real door is in the alleyway next door. It's so cool. But if I could recreate something like that but Quamtum Cafe themed, I think I could keep something like that running. I'm young yet (18 in November), so I've got a lot of time to save up and make investments and blow all my money in stocks. No rush... but at the same time, when you're passionate about something like this, you want to finish it all by the end of the night. I can hardly sleep when I think of something like this. It drives me mad!! CRAZY! CRAZY LIKE A FISH!!

Hi y'all. I just joined because I only recently saw the film "What the BLEEP do we know?". I've always been fascinated by the fact that the mere act of observing could collapse the wave function of an electron in superposition (do I have that right?). As the film indicated, that has profound implications regarding the nature of the universe and reality itself.
I don't have any grounding in quantum physics so I was wondering what any of you more knowlegable people who might have seen the film would have to say about its science content.
Was it correct or were they just spouting ill-informed gobbledygook with an airy-fairy new-age agenda? It certainly made an impression on me.
Thanks in advance for any insights you may pass my way.

Spoilers ahead, maybe! O: Mar. 28th, 2007 @ 01:02 am
Anyone see The Last Mimzy? I thought it was surprisingly 'scientific' for a fantasy film.

And Brian Greene was hidden in there! <3

Although it was never actually mentioned, there wwas a lot of quantum physics involved. What do you think of it?

So, I'm only a senior in high school, and am still only in Physics I. I only took it because I loved the teacher and found him to be an interesting man, not really thinking I was going to like physics all that much. However, within the past few months, I've been watching a lot of shows on the Science Channel about quantum mechanics and scientific theories on how our earth was created, and I haven't been more interested in anything in my entire life. I'm also finding the class to be so intriguing, and the teacher I have helps so much. Physics, and reading about it, seems to be one of the only things I want to do or talk about when I'm not out being a teenager. None of my friends like or know anything about physics, though, and I figured I might find someone willing to talk about it, or even teach me about it, online. Considering where I live, I figured it was probably the best I could do for now. I am hardly ever on livejournal, though, and wanted to post this for anyone interested in talking with me about anything, really, regarding the ideas this community is intended for.

If anyone does want to talk, my screen name is la decadence xx

Or you could just reply on livejournal.
I'd really appreciate it :]

Hello all! I just joined(I noticed a distinct lack of science on my Flist and decided to rectify that). My name is Ellen and I'm from Canada.
I don't consider myself particularly knowledgable* in theoretical physics, but I find it all facinating. I'm looking forward to participating in discussions and whatnot.
I've read Hawking's The Univers in a Nutshell and am in the middle of Brian Greene's The Fabric of the Cosmos. Last summer I had the oppertunity to attend the University of Waterloo's ISSYP camp. Two weeks of lectures at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, it was amazing! Anyone 16 or 17 years old should check it out. Check out their site anyway, everyone. They have a public lecture series that's available online.

*Particularly knowledgable would mean understanding more than not. There's so much bizarre stuff out there that I probably still won't consider myself particularly knowledgeable when I'm a Physics Major.

Hi, I'm new here both to this community and the whole livejournal thing. I just wanted to say hi and tell you that I'm very excited to be a member of this group. I look forward to exchanging my ideas and thoughts with you all, and reading some of yours as well. :) Nice to meet you.

Big Ideas and Whitten Oct. 4th, 2006 @ 09:46 pm
I saw another good string theory show last night. Here's linkage in case anyone wants to check it out.


Also, I noticed that Edward Whitten has ten articles in pdf format on string theory downloadable from the Institute for Andvanced Study's website.


Carry on.

"Baby Bang experiment could open door to new dimension " Sep. 20th, 2006 @ 03:30 pm
Someone on my flist posted an entry about this article last week. It struck me as something that might be of interest to this group. I thought it was neat.

Twistor Theory: Will It Float? Aug. 30th, 2006 @ 12:00 am

I have almost completed reading Roger Penrose’s THE ROAD TO REALITY: A COMPLETE GUIDE TO THE LAWS OF THE UNIVERSE, 2004, wherein he makes an extended argument (1100 pages, but who’s counting) against certain aspects of Gut or string theory, preferring the lesser dimensionality of Twistor Theory as being closer to the classic Einstein model of our physical world.

I’m not trying to be controversial, since I have a very open mind about the subject. I was just wondering if anyone has read Penrose’s book or has any reflections on the subject.

Did a famous italian physicist stage a re-enaction of the laws of quantum mechanics in his own life?

I'm so very glad somebody started a group on this! This stuff completely blows my mind. I love it. I'll think of something intelligent to say later.

Hi there, ...I just watched "The Elegant Univers" (Nova)...( for the second time) after watching this program, and the documentery "What the Bleep do we know?" ... I have no so much as questions about the thoery...but questions on other ways to look at it..... such as:

- Is it possible that String / M Theory can not only unify the Two main branches of Physics ( Quantum and General Relavivity) but ALSO Meta-Physics? ... and as such give us a SCIENTIFIC explenation for such Phanomena as Ghosts, Spirits, Astral travel, and even demons???... could these occurances be maifiastations cuased by the other dimentions predicted in String/M theory? and there fore ARE actualy observable? ledning evidence to the existance of strings?

think about it...string theory might not only be able to explain the science that has been eluding us...but the myths that we grew up with as well.... I find that VERY interesting


PS ... Please dont harp on my over spelling and grammer...I hate that...I know I am horrible at it, but that is no reson to discount my Ideas ( I am only saying this becasue others have done so in the past .... the god damn elitist assholes )
