Is Space an Abscence of Things or is It a Thing Itself? [Science Video]

Since the days of Ancient Greece, philosophers and scientists have been wondering: What is space? Is the absence of things… a thing? These questions continued to fascinate physicists in the modern era, leading Isaac Newton, Ernst Mach, and Albert Einstein to wonder about the true nature of the fabric of the cosmos.

Breaking Newton's Law: Intriguing oscillatory back-and-forth motion of a quantum particle

A ripe apple falling from a tree has inspired Sir Isaac Newton to formulate a theory that describes the motion of objects subject to a force. Newton's equations of motion tell us that a moving body keeps on moving on a straight line unless any disturbing force may change its path. Show More Summary

Why I'm Grumpy About Pondering Existance

"In physics, it’s dangerous to assume that things ‘exist’ in any conventional sense. Instead, the deeper question is: what sorts of processes give rise to the notion (or illusion) that something exists? For example, Isaac Newton explained the physical world in terms of massive bodies that respond to forces. However, with the advent of quantum […]

Standing on the Shoulders of a Giant

Daniel Klem, a genuine giant in ornithology and bird conservation One of my favorite quotes is from Isaac Newton, from 1676, “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants." The idea behind the quote goes back even further, at least to the 12th Century, credited to one Bernard of Chartres. Show More Summary

Let me tell you a little something about gravity: It’s weird. A hundred or so years ago, Albert Einstein realized Isaac Newton’s laws didn’t work so well for really extreme situations, ones Newton never would have encountered on 17th century Earth. So Einstein said, alright, let’s come up with a new theory that looks… Read more...

Chomsky’s Mysterianism

Or perhaps Chomsky’s endorsement of Isaac Newton’s mysterianism.  We tend to think of Newton as bringing physics to a triumphant state of perfection, one that lasted until Einstein, and with qualifications, still stands. Chomsky says that in fact Newton shattered the ambitions of mechanical science, which have never recovered; and in doing so he placed […]
