    I love the science of physics,

    and spend a lot of time reading on the subject. I occasionally find the odd concept or bit of mathematics hard to get my head around at first, but once it all falls into place it is just mind-blowing. I find it amazing to contemplate how far we have come in our understanding...

    Optics and Acoustics

    My grandfather held a doctorate in physics.  He specialized in optics and acoustics.  It was because of him that my childhood was a flood of prisms, box cameras, eclipses, tanks of colored water, sandglasses, bubbles, tuning forks, drawings of eagles, marbles, rubber...

    You look at my posts.

    You see depression, you see the remnants of a very lost person, but why am I here at physics? Just because I cry myself to sleep with my AP physics book every night, or because it sits on my floor crying without me? Science is not beautiful without anyone to care for it. I care...

    My Personal Take, Lecture Theatre Not Required...

    Physics is a language that by it's nature will always be in it's infancy. It is the words and questions of a 'toddler' struggling to communicate with and understand all the new things in its new world. Whatever we think we know or have learned and hypothesised about there is more...

    Is Time Real?

    Kant was among the first to postulate an unbending time dimension akin to spatial ones. Einstein showed time dilation in Special Relativity by discussing "signals" of light being used to "measure time". Fair enough, but doesn't this presume the motion of light? Suppose there was...

    I find it increasingly odd

    that a marriage is actually the celebration simply for endurance. That its value is not measured by the degree to which both feel connected to one another and whole in themselves, but in the commitment to, simply, not move. That the failure is divorce and not inertia.
