Today, it is fully established that physical atoms are comprised of a menagerie of subatomic units such as quarks, bosons and fermions. Interestingly, particle physicists perceive these fundamental atomic units as vortices of energy resembling nano-tornados.

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.

The problem however eventually became evident to make…

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.

―Paul Kalanithi, When Breath Becomes Air

Science may provide the most useful way to…

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…

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…

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.

Albert Einstein
