Knowing the Mind of God: Einstein’s unfinished symphony, Hawking’s partial unification (part 2)

General Relativity + Quantum Mechanics = Troubled Marriage in Short Distances One of the biggest scientific challenges today is the unification of gravity and quantum mechanics. Einstein’s baby or prima donna, his general theory of relativity, described the laws of the cosmos and the birth of the universe, the orbits of the heavenly bodies and […]

Knowing the Mind of God: Einstein’s unfinished symphony, Hawking’s partial unification (part 1)

I was an undergraduate astronomy major studying the physics of the “Schwarzschild Black Holes” when I decided to study the laws of the quantum field theory in a black hole’s curved spacetime to round up my education. I really like that it is trying to reconcile quantum theory with gravity which is one of the […]

Ant-Man rocks while distracting us from quantum science!

Uncontrolled shrinking into the infinitesimal cosmos as Scott Carey did in the 1957 sci-fi classic, The Incredible Shrinking Man — that is the concept Ant-Man owes a tip of the hat to in one of its final scenes when Scott Lang (played by Paul Rudd) plunges seemingly toward a similar fate after being left with […]

Discovery of ‘God particle’ announced

Scientists think they have experimental evidence of the existence of the Higgs Boson — the ‘God particle’ that is the hypothetical glue that physicists are counting on to hold their current mathematical model of the universe together. European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) experts working with the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Switzerland had announced […]

The ultimate Easter reflection question: Why would the ‘Son of God’ die for us?

In many articles all over the part of the Net I am most familiar with, there are many calls to reflect on the real “meaning” of Easter season — that is, presumably, the Catholic meaning of Easter which revolves around the “sacrifice” of Jesus Christ to redeem our sad lot of Adam’s sin. At the […]
