The nature of quantum mechanics. 1

When nature takes all the million paths, allowed for the tiny bump or the ball, which includes all the paths in the vicinity of the actuated path (that is, the actual trajectory of the ball seen on TV) all of them cancel each other out.

If Path A is the actuated path, then its surrounded on both sides by, path A-minor-up and path A-minor-down, A-minor-up, has a phase 30 degree and A-minor-down, minus 30 degree, since nature isn’t going to give any special priority to any of the path but add them up, to see any excess value, it finds that at each instant only the actuated path Path A survives, with a non zero value, and all other (paths?) do not give any sufficient phase or amplitude, to the actual motion of the ball.

Nature is a rule-book, immensely complex, gigantic and subtle … 3

So we do live in a time, when quantum mechanics is actually not making it much into our psyche, given it’s a well carved out niche, on the slopes of which we are doing all our chores, yet not realize so, and given that we have taken into grant, some of its most ill quoted saying, such as quantum mechanics pertains to the small and it only adds up a ferociously small error.

The truth is some of its often quoted remarks such as, Feynman’s; safe to say nobody understands quantum mechanics and so on, are a mere metaphor, in circumstances where further insights of quantum mechanics are tangible and NOT inconsistent with the rules of quantum mechanics.

Although such is unlikely to come in a decade, impressive strides are possible in 5 decades and truly comprehensive knowledge is possible in several centuries to a millennium’s time. More…

Safety of science in India, is Indian Democracy in control of science in India? Reply

I have teachers from where I come from, who are the alumni of IITs and likes and they are all engaged in some sort of activities related to science and research, say teaching. They are also of the best quality as I have come across, but when it comes to finding a structure that recognizes and utilizes their potential its quite far away. Is there a database in this country that maintains the list of experts and their expertise so it can be used for future plans for science, education, and teaching.

You can remind me this country doesn’t thrive on such principles; I have come across the corrupt practices of organizations such as the AICTE and I have also come across their dignitaries, who go on government funding to places inside the country but have no worthwhile issues to take care.

They come and see the laboratory and in a careless momentary self gratification remark “Establish LASER in the labs ”, well if we need LASER and you can right away see it, why don’t you take a report from right there and submit it to your office, and sanction the money the next month. I can certainly write a proposal right there in a couple minutes. More…

Who needs a Science war. 5

Call it a spoof, but in the fun of things we have started igniting each other. So its all a fun game. Didn’t I promise so. Its fun, seriously fun. But in modern times its just a phenomena of human tendency. If the internet is not invented and we live nearby we celebrate every leap year by throwing stones at each other. We need a reason for that and in the absence of a reason call it a special reason. Now that internet is invented we can happily do anything we want to without invading anyone’s personal space in a physical way. But we can throw many stones at each other once we know what some one can be ascribed for in his mind. More…

The state of Indian Science. Reply

China is already doing this. Its particle accelerators are hotbeds of science research where people from the globe come like honey-bee come to flowers. China is even planning to establish world’s largest accelerator, bigger than LHC, the biggest and highest energy facility in the world now.

If we think democracy is hindering our strides, we better change to communism, shall we? There are certain aspects where Democracy should have little less calling power, but thats possible on two fronts, 1. we realize that we first need world class thinkers and scientists and technologists 2. we realize that we are in safe hand and we can turn democracy off.

Advocacy of science ! Reply

Now what is science, calculating a piece of problem is not science. It leads to new knowledge that can bring anyone laurels. That’s still not science. Its dissemination to the broader community is a beginning of science.

When the basic ideas behind such strenuous activities become established practice of modern societies, that’s science. Because it will become sustainable enough for the benefit of human kind. More…
