Late last year I – briefly – published an entry on the subject of ceteris paribus and the fractal. As an entry it completed a set of (fractal) explanations for – what I think to be – the three main assumptions of economics: rationality, and perfect information the others – it was an entry I had been developing since the beginning of this blog and I always knew it was a deep and special one. For reasons that I aim to explain in this entry, I paused, and quickly took it down again.
At first it was just this (quantum) isolation that caught my attention, but then it soon grew to include the whole quantum set: uncertainty principle (problems of position and observation), entanglement, and wave particle duality. After a time of thinking – if that weren’t enough –concepts of time, and Special Relativity came to view too.
So, for the last few months I have – as a mere novice – been absorbing as much as I can on the topics of quantum mechanics – and the atom: listening to podcasts, radio show discussions with expert particle physicists, and chemists – over and over again – and also reading, and watching documentaries (all of which, I shall try and list below).
It has been – strongly – recommended to me that I should publish – through the usual academic process – but I am not in any position to do so, and so have instead opted to continue developing and publishing my findings here on this blog: using the technology of our age and the creative commons. If things proceed, advance, or necessitate, I shall publish (formerly) elsewhere, and at another date.
