A rabbi once told me, in a conversation about faith and science, that God hides the truth from us, and expects us to work, using all of our faculties to find it. That’s a counter to the common understanding of how Science or Theology work, but for those of […]

Why study Physics.

Film / Science / SOSc

A truly lovely short film by a Rhode Islander – who studied physics at Brown and design and animation at RISD – both a few blocks from where I sit as I write this sentence. Why Do I Study Physics? (2013) from Xiangjun Shi on Vimeo. Take a few minutes to watch it and then look at the world around you with your new rational and irrational eyes…

This modifies a similar experiment done recently but which was criticized because the measurement couldn’t be guaranteed to depend solely on entanglement. Can the ansible be far behind?
