What Is Time? Theoretical Physicist Sean Carroll Explains Time's Arrow

Have you ever stopped to ask yourself, "what is time?" We all understand its passage intuitively, experientially. But does time actually exist? Is it a force of nature? A tangible entity? I spoke with theoretical physicist and perhaps the world's premier expert on the science of time, Sean Carroll, to learn more.

For the First Time, A Snapshot of A Single Atom's Shadow

For the First Time, A Snapshot of A Single Atom's Shadow | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

There's no way to take a direct picture of something as small and fleeting as a Higgs boson. But physicists can photograph its relatives, directly imaging atomic structures and improving our understanding of atomic physics. Now comes this picture: The first-ever snapshot of a single atom's shadow.

Technology: Can You Disconnect from the ‘Matrix’?

Technology: Can You Disconnect from the ‘Matrix’? | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

Are you a master of technology in which you use it as a tool to enhance the quality of your life? Or are you addicted to your technology such that it actually hurts the quality of your life? There is a growing body of evidence indicating that overuse of technology has the same neurochemical effects—a shot of dopamine, our bodies’ way of rewarding us—as do addictions to alcohol, drugs, sex, and gambling.

Play Ping Pong. Read Tolstoy. Daydream….and Get Smarter. | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

If this all sounds like scientific justification for afternoon naps, long showers, and Russian literature, you’re right. “We always assume that you get more done when you’re consciously paying attention to a problem,” Schooler told me. “That’s what it means, after all, to be ‘working on something.’ But this is often a mistake. If you’re trying to solve a complex problem, then you need to give yourself a real break, to let the mind incubate the problem all by itself. We shouldn’t be so afraid to actually take some time off.”

[VIDEO] Invention of the Internet in 1934?

[VIDEO] Invention of the Internet in 1934? | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

In a 1934 book titled, The Treaties on Documentation, Belgian entrepreneur Paul Otlet conceived of a system for requesting and retrieving massive amounts of information. Calling it a “radiated library,” Otlet’s device would allow users to retrieve all the world’s information—books, magazines, film, music—with a single phone call. Did he invent the Internet? Here, Alex Wright, director of user experience at The New York Times and discoverer of Otlet’s lost opus, explains at the 2012 World Science Festival program, Internet Everywhere, just how close Otlet had come to creating the world’s first information-networking system.

How To Stop Time

How To Stop Time | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

Human beings have the capacity to stop time. It is, in fact, a commonly used capacity. We use our ability to stop time as a bulwark against the threat of disruptive newness that encroaches with the future. It also allows us to keep what we remember from turning into the mere past.

So how do we stop time?

The answer that I have in mind is: through ritual.

[VIDEO] Michio Kaku: The Universe in a Nutshell

What if we could find one single equation that explains every force in the universe? Dr. Michio Kaku explores how physicists may shrink the science of the Big Bang into an equation as small as Einstein's "e=mc^2." Thanks to advances in string theory, physics may allow us to escape the heat death of the universe, explore the multiverse, and unlock the secrets of existence. While firing up our imaginations about the future, Kaku also presents a succinct history of physics and makes a compelling case for why physics is the key to pretty much everything.
