    Bouletcorp’s quantum pixel 

    This comic strip published by Bouletcorp is brilliant. In fact, this is pure genius that the world needs to see. Four simple images tell a powerful story about the nature of reality.

    A French man tired of the illusory nature of the real world that is trapped between relativity and quantum theory takes refuge in a 2D electronic world only to meet Stephen Hawking there who explains to him that the chaos does not end by cutting out a dimension.

    If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.

    “Subatomic particles do not exist but rather show ‘tendencies to exist’, and atomic events do not occur with certainty at definite times and in definite ways, but rather show ‘tendencies to occur’.”

    Existentialism, , , , , , Science   


    The problem, however, eventually became evident: to make science the arbiter of metaphysics is to banish not only God from the world but also love, hate, meaning—to consider a world that is self-evidently not the world we live in. That’s not to say that if you believe in meaning, you must also believe in God. It is to say, though, that if you believe that science provides no basis for God, then you are almost obligated to conclude that science provides no basis for meaning and, therefore, life itself doesn’t have any. In other words, existential claims have no weight; all knowledge is scientific knowledge.

    Science may provide the most useful way to organize empirical, reproducible data, but its power to do so is predicated on its inability to grasp the most central aspects of human life: hope, fear, love, hate, beauty, envy, honor, weakness, striving, suffering, virtue.

    ―Paul Kalanithi, When Breath Becomes Air

    Instead of always emphasizing what we actually know in science, it would be enormously fruitful to focus on what we do not know. For it is here that the wonders lie. To know is the domain that is safe, where risk taking is no longer necessary. To dwell in it forever is not only to never advance, it is also to promote a deceptive and false view of ourselves as knowing more than we do, of being more powerful that we really are.

    -Lewis Thomas, Former President of Sloane Kettering Cancer Institute

    The most beautiful and profound emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is at the root of all true science. That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe is my idea of God.

    The stream of knowledge is heading towards a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine.

    I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.

    I wonder why some people tend to see science as something which takes man away from God. As I look at it, the path of science can always wind through the heart. For me, science has always been the path to spiritual enrichment and self-realisation.
