Huh?

This physicist’s ideas of time will blow your mind.

It blew mine.

Time, according to Rovelli, doesn’t exist if human beings aren’t there to experience it.

Rovelli suggeststhat “what we experience as time’s passage is a mental process happening in the space between memory and anticipation.

How do you like that for an explanation of “time”?

Read it. You’ll like it.

Troubled Times for Alternatives to Einstein’s Theory of Gravity

http://flip.it/mH0qjI

Interesting article about how alternative gravity theories to Einstein’s general relativity die because an event billions of light year away which has been predicted by theory has reached the earth and recorded by devices developed for that particular event.

Well, killing off old theories and replacing them with new ones is how science has worked in the past and it will be the way how science can stand up to the test of time in the future.

May be one of these days, human can travel at a speed close to the speed of light and boldly go where no one has gone before.

But, I doubt it that these future space travelers will ever meet any alien at all.

雖然是天書,讀起來還是很有意思。

有時候沒事,靜下來想想這個世界,這個宇宙, big bang 和 big bang 以前是怎麼來的也相當有趣。雖然這幾個問題在目前不可能有答案,偶爾看看天書,讓雜亂的心暫時遠離一下”柴米油鹽醬醋茶”和這個世界的亂像,讓腦筋轉一轉,動一動,心裏靜一靜對我的心身都有一點好處。

神,佛,菩薩,上蒼,天堂,地獄和輪迴是人編出來的,這是信仰的領域。這是幾千年以來人類受苦受難以後想出來的虛擬世界來安慰自己的。這跟人死了以後去那裏一樣,都沒有辦法經過科學的實驗來證實的。

我們這個神奇的宇宙是怎麼來的,在最近的將來也沒有辦法經過科學來證實。這就需要像 Einstien, Hawking 和 Hertog 這些聰明人來想辦法了。

美國聯邦政府公務員

  • 至少有四十萬人年薪三百萬新臺幣
  • 至少有三萬人年薪五百七十萬新臺幣

台灣公務員

  •  錢少:剛開始做事年薪:三,四萬;退休時年薪:六萬到八萬;人中龍或人中鳳退休年薪:一百二十萬新臺幣。
    • 事少:上班時畫圖解悶
    • 退休金被狠狠地砍了一刀:

      • 謝謝台灣政府的關懷,體貼和德政,台灣這些賺錢少,餓不死,可憐的公務員快要可以兼差了:

      • 台灣年輕的公務員娶不起老婆,養不起孩子。可是你能怪他們嗎?

      No.

      Will we get younger as we grow old?

      Nah.

      A pprobe detected a mysterious signal that physics can’t explain

      http://flip.it/DHemoA

      The spaceprobe entered the orbit in December 2015. It wss launched from the Jiuquan (酒泉) Satellite Launch Center in the Gobi Desert (戈壁沙漠), about 820 miles northwest of Xi’an (西安). 

      DAMPE stands for Dark Matter Particle Explorer (DAMPE) while WIMPs are known as weakly interacting massive particles. The DAMPE spaceprobe was specifically designed to look for the indirect decay signal of the dark matter, the so-called WIMPs.

      I don’t know that China is into this kind of research in astrophysics, the kind of research which doesn’t yield any immediate benefits, if ever, except advacing knowledge in space, time, and possibly the meaning of life and why we are here in this world.

      This project will go on for 5 years.

      Ray Dalio’s advice for Donald Trump

      I’ll let you in on a little secret: my son used to work for Bridgewater and that’s how I knew who Dalio was. Several years back, we were at Bridgewater’s Connecticut HQ picking up our son from work. 

      Bridgewater’s HQ was located at a very seclusive site. There was no sign on a narrow and winding country road to indicate where the HQ was. You had to know where to turn or you’d miss the small road leading to the front entrance of the building. We parked our car at the parking lot about 100 feet from the entrance. We couldn’t see the entire building because it was hidden behind lots of huge trees. We also saw several security guards who were dressed in black along with a few black SUVs in front of the building. My son told me that they were used to transport workers to local hotels or bus stations when they missed their buses to NYC because they had to stay behind to finish work for the day.
