Space-time

A Caltech researcher has recently pointed out that Schrodinger’s Equation, which describes the wavelike nature of particles, and is therefore the foundational equation of quantum mechanics, is also very useful in describing the long-term evolution of large-scale astronomical structure of space-time.   Today, let’s conduct a little science thought experiment.  A typical scientific process might entail […]

We can Make a Difference

Pollution is a world-wide problem, as Merle Akeetheran points out in The Enlightening. Industrial-level pollution can follow the hydrologic cycle and be carried around the entire Earth.  Merle pointed out that this defilement reaches areas as remote as the mountaintop in the Himalayas where he enlightened Ken as to the nature of electromagnetic energy and […]

A Shout-out to Merle Akeetheran

In “The Enlightening,” Merle Akeetheran opines that overpasses and underpasses that allow wildlife to safely cross busy roads are a good idea.  Merle points out that many people are killed and seriously injured each year due to vehicle/ animal collisions, and the carnage inflicted upon the affected fauna can be quite considerable.  In fact, Merle […]

Something on the Lighter Side

Seems like everyone likes to read something on the lighter side, now and then. Physicists are no exception, as contended by researchers from the University of Exeter. Just another reason why a physicist would enjoy reading The Enlightening. Here is a brief summary of their findings, from Physics World. https://physicsworld.com/a/do-physicists-avoid-reading-papers-with-lots-of-equations/

Lost in Math, Indeed

     As some of those who are aware of The Enlightening may know, my interest in cosmology and astrophysics spans back nearly 30 years.  The mystery of dark matter is what really caught my interest back in the early 1980s, when I began to research and study the subject, in earnest.  I put the time […]

Dark Energy is Getting Stronger

Some new research out of the University of Florence, indicating a “mysterious” increase in the flow of dark energy, validates my own model of the hyper-dimensional universe, as described in “The Enlightening.” Here is the link from the hyper-dimensional universe site.

Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet Captures Amazing UFO Footage

A lot of people say that there aren’t any good UFO photos or videos.  Here is some footage captured by a Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet using an advanced Raytheon infrared imaging system.  The Weapons Systems Operator manages to “box” the image of a very fast object, on his third attempt.  The rapidly flying object in question is […]

Emotion Recorded in Tranquility

In one scene of The Enlightening, Merle mentions that the song “Green River,” by Creedence Clearwater Revival, reminds him of William Wordsworth. In fact, Merle says that the song wouldn’t even be possible if it wasn’t for Wordsworth, who was perhaps the primary figure of the Romantic Era of English literature. English Romanticism valued emotional, […]
