About me

Reluctantly crouched at the starting line. I'm a driver, I'm a winner. Things are gonna change, I can feel it. He's fighting and biting and riding on his horse. He's going the distance. He's going for speed. He's going the distance. Ahh... / Ah. Words to remember: neoteny. cynosure. immanent. mercantilism. teleology.Read more about me »

Quantum: Einstein, Bohr and the Great Debate About the Nature of Reality

by Manjit Kumar
For most people, quantum theory is a byword for mysterious, impenetrable science. And yet for many years it was equally baffling for scientists themselves. Manjit Kumar gives a dramatic and superbly-written history of this fundamental scientific revolution, and the divisive debate at its heart.

For 60 years most physicists believed that quantum theory denied the very existence of reality itself. Yet Kumar shows how the golden age of physics ignited the greatest intellectual debate of the twentieth century.

Quantum sets the science in the context of the great upheavals of the modern age. In 1925 the quantum pioneers nearly all hailed from upper-middle-class academic families; most were German; and their average age was 24. But it was their irrational, romantic spirit, formed in reaction to the mechanised slaughter of the First World War that inspired their will to test science to its limits.

The essential read for anyone fascinated by this complex and thrilling story and by the band of young men at its heart.

Friday, April 4th, 2014

I live in a hotel
must keep writing
if I’m to be better than everyone else
like figure skating
like asphyxiating
on your own seeping fumes
you’re just waiting
living in a hotel
but I’m not traveling
between two points, in mid air,
I’m levitating
above the earth
beneath the sky
eyes like static
in my three feet
from bed to wall
there sleeps a genius
leave me here to my devices
the call could come at any time
they’re playing love songs on the radio tonight
I can’t relate to that right now
note so self : no one cares. your voice is average
in worried piles I typed for miles and you just stood there.
I will begin
I will put right
this morning terror
I have been kissed
between the ears
by human error
leave me here to my devices
I need a word to change my life
I’ve tied my ankles to the table legs with wire
he can’t write so much as type
leave me here to my devices
I can’t think with all this noise
they’re playing love songs on your radio tonight
I don’t get those songs on mine
you keep fucking up my life

Saturday, March 22nd, 2014

“The theory needed interpretation the way a fish needs water. This fact alone was a drastic break with the past history of science. A classical (i.e., pre-quantum) equation, after its terms were defined, essentially explained itself. With the quantum revolution, the equations fell silent. Only an interpretation allowed them to speak about the natural world.”
