Alan Watts on the Difference Between Belief and Faith

Alan Watts on the Difference Between Belief and Faith | Love | Scoop.it

"We must here make a clear distinction between belief and faith, because, in general practice, belief has come to mean a state of mind which is almost the opposite of faith. Belief, as I use the word here, is the insistence that the truth is what one would “lief” or wish it to be. The believer will open his mind to the truth on the condition that it fits in with his preconceived ideas and wishes.


Faith, on the other hand, is an unreserved opening of the mind to the truth, whatever it may turn out to be. Faith has no preconceptions; it is a plunge into the unknown.


Belief clings, but faith lets go.


In this sense of the word, faith is the essential virtue of science, and likewise of any religion that is not self-deception."

Have We Been Interpreting Quantum Mechanics Wrong This Whole Time? | Science | WIRED

Have We Been Interpreting Quantum Mechanics Wrong This Whole Time? | Science | WIRED | Love | Scoop.it

For nearly a century, “reality” has been a murky concept. The laws of quantum physics seem to suggest that particles spend much of their time in a ghostly state, lacking even basic properties such as a definite location and instead existing everywhere and nowhere at once. Only when a particle is measured does it suddenly materialize, appearing to pick its position as if by a roll of the dice.

 

This idea that nature is inherently probabilistic — that particles have no hard properties, only likelihoods, until they are observed — is directly implied by the standard equations of quantum mechanics. But now a set of surprising experiments with fluids has revived old skepticism about that worldview. The bizarre results are fueling interest in an almost forgotten version of quantum mechanics, one that never gave up the idea of a single, concrete reality.

 

The experiments involve an oil droplet that bounces along the surface of a liquid. The droplet gently sloshes the liquid with every bounce. At the same time, ripples from past bounces affect its course. The droplet’s interaction with its own ripples, which form what’s known as a pilot wave, causes it to exhibit behaviors previously thought to be peculiar to elementary particles — including behaviors seen as evidence that these particles are spread through space like waves, without any specific location, until they are measured.

The behavior of quanta may be a lot less weird than we have been told ... this article is an interesting discussion of an ongoing series of experiments that highlight two different interpretations of what's happening in the sub-microscopic world of quanta.

Penelope's curator insight, May 14, 7:16 PM

 

Writers are constantly bombarded with show, don't tell advice. You say, I'm a beginning writer, how do I do this?

 

To help us out with this dilemma, enter that revered and adored spud friend from our childhood: Mr. Potato Head!

 

Remember the five senses from science class? Well, it applies to writing class as well. You touch the five senses of the reader. You've got 'em.

 

As you write, imagine yourself in the same room with your protagonist (lead character). You sit in the same creaky chair, smell the burnt dinner, hear the chiming clock, see the cat jump off the couch, burn your hand on the oven, taste the burnt macaroni and cheese.

 

Get the picture? ;)
