TIME REGAINED - JAMES GLEICK

Wednesday 22 May 2013 at 9:38 pm

Lee Smolin is one of my favorite physicists; he is a leader and a contrarian and is closer to the truth than most, in my reality. I have read all of Gleick’s books.

I have always had a lot of difficulty with Einstein’s Relativity stuff and space time.  The space time  folks argue that space and time are inextricably  joined in the fourth dimension. They argue that space and time are interlocked permanently and that the passing of time is an illusion.  They argue that the past, present and future all exist at the same time (sorry for the pun);   The math works out OK but it is not my reality.  Smolin to the rescue; he argues that time flows and that time is reality and space is an illusion. OK with me.

See Smolin’s comments on consciousness at the end.

PS:  if you accept Smolins argument that time is real and flows and that space is an illusion; then it is muich easier to understand quantum  theory which is weird but always since it discovery nearly 100 years ago, produced the right answer.  Btw, Newton believe spaced was an entity unto himself and that things existed in space. Leibnitz argued that space was set of relationships but he lost out to Newton. My guess is that Smolin will have a profound impact on the future of science.

the quintessential beauty of mathematics -fractals

Wednesday 22 May 2013 at 09:59 am

click here for link to mendlebrot generator: http://sourceforge.net/projects/quickman/

if you want to grasp the beauty and the quintessence of mathematics then go to the link above and press the green button to download the mendlebrot generator. i believe the formula that generates these amazing images is (z^3 - z + c).

you may get hooked on the patterns being generated like i am.  there is a deep spiritual message with the mendlebrot generator.

as CIO of Travelers, i would visit IBM research lab occasionally, i believe at Yorktown or Poughkeepsie.  I did get to meet and spend quality time with Mendlebrot.  one of his prominent physical features was a huge protruding forehead or huge frontal lobe which he said was a sign of advanced intelligence.  the protruding forehead does not show well in pictures.  enjoy the generator.
