Interference is weirdly symbolic of one night stands.
Two lives. Meet. At one fateful junction. How they connect only depends onhow they are inclined. They might be bright. They might create mental sparks just thinking about each other. But sometimes light added to light gives darkness. At the end of it all, the two lives continue, as if never touched by chaos. But the reader knows it all.
They just met, and adjust in an unsynchronised dance engaging every particle of their souls. It takes pages and pages of math and reasoning, but we are mere humans. We fiddle with cases and possibilities. We hypothesize endlessly - needlessly, for it is etched into their very being.
And isn't that enough?
A redistribution of energies, a shifting of priorities. Before the end of all priorities. The crash and bang and dissipation and null.
Diffraction: The phenomenon of realising you cannot fight other people without first resolving the conflict within you.
A meeting that changes you within - that once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity you grab hold of. You know it's risky but you believe you will emerge unscathed. There were a million warring thoughts competing for your attention the whole way. Oh, don't brush it off, don't pretend like it hasn't happened before. You will try, this time, to maintain a stoic posture and a calm demeanour.
Rip off the façade. If not to the world, to me. Admit yourself in your arms, for I see you in my mirror. Stop this one-sided battle you are waging; I give it to you, you have won this whole war. Diffract into a million pieces of beauty.
Photoelectric emission: It is the relay race of the quantum world. Literally zooming at the speed of light, watch those electrons zoom to the other side!
Look at that tiny one bob ahead of the others - his photon packet must have come from glucose.
We are in an ocean of waves
Microwaves, Television waves, Radio waves.
And yet you insist on maintaining radio silence.
In this deluge of excess unnecessary information
I search for the wave that carries a tinge of regret that we have to send each other waves from so far away when we were once close enough for telepathy.
The set of my eyebrows
would tell you I love you
The lines of your jaw
A glaring panic attack
My eyes would smile
Your heart would accept
and make moot
a need for waves.
Gamma is the probability of a nucleus undergoing disintegration.
1 is the probability of the death of a mortal, and his subsequent disintegration.
0 is the probability that we will not die.
The average life span of a nucleus is given by the inverse of gamma.
For the nucleus it might be a decimal, but for us humans only integers will do.
You have //one// full life. Live it.
The half-life of a substance is the time taken for the reaction to occur until only half of it remains.
While this is the most common measurement, it need not be the only one.
One-third life is the amount of time required for one-third of your chosen sample to disappear (for mint chocolate-chip cookies it is often a minute and a half)
As demonstrated, you can choose your sample.
You can choose the way you measure it’s life.
And if you’re determined enough?
Perhaps you can choose how the sample of you is determined too.
We have a very interesting physics sir who says things that make one wonder at the comparisons he makes. And then I build on it. This list will get updated as we cover new topics.
UPDATE: It's been a year since I last saw that Prof. And since my intimate-yet-brief dalliance with Physics is (finally) over, I think I'm going to say goodbye to updating this post.
