Interactive: What Is Space?

Interactive: What Is Space? | Social Media | Scoop.it
Imagine the fabric of space-time peeled back layer by layer.

 

Albert Einstein’s field equations of gravitation revolutionized our understanding of space, time and gravity in 1915. Better known as general relativity, Einstein’s theory defined gravity as curves in the geometry of space-time, overturning Isaac Newton’s classic theory and correctly predicting the existence of black holes and gravity’s ability to bend light. But a century later, the fundamental nature of space-time remains shrouded in mystery: Where does its structure come from? What do space-time and gravity look like in the subatomic quantum realm?

 

The short answer is that we don’t know. But many physicists, writesJennifer Ouellette in “How Quantum Pairs Stitch Space-Time,” have long “suspected a deep connection between quantum entanglement — the ‘spooky action at a distance’ that so vexed Albert Einstein — and space-time geometry at the smallest scales.” How might entanglement stitch together the structured fabric of space-time? One compelling recent idea, writes K.C. Cole in “Wormholes Untangle a Black Hole Paradox,” suggests that quantum entanglement “could be creating the ‘spatial connectivity’ that ‘sews space together,’ according to Leonard Susskind, a physicist at Stanford University and one of the idea’s main architects.” This idea, though still in its infancy, would solve the troublesome black hole firewall paradoxand, enticingly, could help explain quantum gravity.

 

To illustrate how space-time might arise from quantum entanglement, Quanta Magazine invited Owen Cornec, a data visualization fellow at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, to imagine peeling back layers of space to find a network of entanglements. The resulting interactive presentation serves as the third installment of our series on “The Quantum Fabric of Space-Time.”

 

As you explore Cornec’s immersive virtual world, it’s worth noting that it does not attempt to convey how entanglement actually “sews space together” (no one knows what that would look like exactly, or even if this is how reality works), or to depict the holographic concept or the wormholes mentioned in the first two parts of this series.

Neuroplasticity: The 10 Fundamentals Of Rewiring Your Brain

Neuroplasticity: The 10 Fundamentals Of Rewiring Your Brain | Social Media | Scoop.it
Brain plasticity is a two-way street; it is just as easy to generate negative changes as it is positive ones. You have a “use it or lose it” brain. It’s almost as easy to drive changes that impair memory and physical and mental abilities as it is to improve these things. Merzenich says that older people are absolute masters at encouraging plastic brain change in the wrong direction.

How Are You Setting Sales Quotas?

How Are You Setting Sales Quotas? | Social Media | Scoop.it
In most companies, at some point before the start of a new fiscal year, senior execs come up with targets. The targets are usually about updating or releasing new products, introducing new services, calculating how much this all will cost, and then determining how much sales need to increase as a result of these lofty plans. There’s often a disconnect between how these decisions are made and the word that comes down regarding unrealistic sales quotas for the coming year. Lee Salz has a few ideas about how companies can do a better job of setting quotas.
