Topic 190116

I have just read on the Italian newspaper La Repubblica of an appeal to NASA and ESA by Stephen Hawking and other scientists to finance a program LISA to put a laser interferometer in space in order to detect GWs. I have written a mail to La Repubblica to invite others to contribute their PCs to E@H, but I cannot guarantee it will be published, although the article about LISA started in the first page. Hawking docet.

LISA


Further informations on LISA available at lisa.jpl.nasa.gov.It looks like LISA would work at lower frequencies than LIGO, GEO and VIRGO, that is at much greater wavelengths. Let us hope.

Hello dear tullio,

Thank you for this information.I should tell you that I am a follower and a disciple of Stephen Hawking.Many years ago we had correspondance and he sent me all his teachings on astrophysics on VHS to me.Even now i revise his hypothesis about the Black Hole.In my belief,his thoughts are very original and attractive specially about the Neutrinos and the hypothesis of Strings and Ultra-Strings.Once he told me that the variety of matter and enery will constitute the 21 st century's physics.He also explained that the univers being under the influence of Dark Matter,the cold Dark Matter is not easily knoledgable.He believed that there are many questions which have not any response, then why should the response be hidden in a mathematic equation.Maths are unable to resolve the hypothesis of ultra-string.He ended his statment with this thought that the Great Magnet attract all and behind the galaxies is left a Great Vaccum "How is the Univers will never tell us Why it exists".

Regards

Ariane

I am an admirer of Hawking too. I saw him in his wheelchair at the International Center for Theoretical Physics in Trieste many years ago. I wish him every luck. I have had a correspondence too, but not with him but with Roger Penrose about the workings of the brain, which in my opinion are macroscopic quantum phenomena. The Universe is just too big for me. Our small brains are hard pressed to understand it. Happy New Year.

Dear Tullio, thank you for


Dear Tullio, thank you for your reply , just now i posted something not very irrelevant in the field of the function of our brain and the cognition in general.I am really passionnated by the macroscopic quantum phenomena.

HAPPY NEW YEAR !

Some of the points you raise are very real. Physics is going into stranger lands. See the essay Einstein has left the building, in today's NYtimes.Cheers.

Dear Tullio, thank you for your care, in my opinion Stephen Hawking was most of all an Astrophysics philosophe,something perhaps rare amoung scientists.My intention is not to introduce philosophy in this science section,it would be "mal a propos", but,given we are humans and not mere robots,I believe science has always contributed in the evolution of philosophy,because what would be the use of scientific data, if we don't deduce some philosophycal principles? And in my opinion the Quantum Physics made a revolution in philosophy too and the 21 st century's philosophy received the impact of Quantum Physics.I will develop later in my thread the correlation between Quantum Physics and philosophy.

Yes, but be careful. Quantum physics is a difficult subject. Einstein was horrified by it. "God does not play dice" was his famous statement. To which Wolfgang Pauli replied: EVEN YOU cannot tell God what He can or cannot do. So be very careful. Other people have tried to transform quantum physics into a philosophy (Soviet Marxist scientists, for instance). Not much is left of their effort. In my opinion quantum physics brings us to our limits in trying to understand nature. Relativity is much easier. Cheers.

Dear Tullio, thank you for your advice, i will try being very careful, i know Quantum physics is a very difficult subject,but i don't know why i am so attracted by it, perhaps i feel it and i find it very close to my vision of the World.In my thread i try developping just the highlights which are adjacent to my beliefs and my vision.

Regards

(Totally off topic : do you know Giuseppe Ungaretti ? He is my favorite poet).

Yes, I know him as I know Montale and Quasimodo. But i prefer T.S.Eliot and Garcia Lorca.
