Bohmian Mechanics: Vague and Absurd

Bohmian Mechanics: Vague and Absurd

This work attempts to show that Bohmian mechanics is vague and absurd ... (more)

This work attempts to show that Bohmian mechanics is vague and absurd on two basic grounds. Bohmian mechanics essentially postulates the existence of a subtle force called “the quantum potential” which pervades all space and provides direct connections between quantum systems. It suggests that a total order in the whole universe is contained, in some implicit sense, in each region of space and time. And the quantum potential corresponds to such “implicate order”. The first of the two grounds states that no idea of (spatial) force, e.g. gravitational or magnetic force or the quantum potential, can be a substitute for any simple or, moreover, complex intelligent (spatial) structure, e.g. a neural structure found in human brain, as the concept of force is a mere abstraction, a vague idea, which does not provide (spatial) mechanistic explanations. (For example, Newton’s idea of gravitational force fails to explain “action at a distance”.) Therefore, a region of space and time, though containing quantum and possibly infinite number of super…quantum potentials, simply cannot contain a neural order, for example, unless containing an appropriate (spatial) “structure” representing the order. The second ground considers the Bohmian mechanistic idea/remark that “the (spatial) implicate domain”, corresponding to the (spatial) quantum potentials, could equally be called Idealism, Spirit, Consciousness. This idea/remark means that Bohmian mechanics considers consciousness to be spatial which, however, contradicts the NSTP (Non – Spatial Thinking Process) theoretical axiom/“self-evident truth” that ‘consciousness is non-spatial’. In short, Bohmian mechanics is vague and absurd. (less)

Have you ever wondered why it takes such a long period of time for NASA to build space exploration equipment? What is involved in manufacturing and building a rover for the Red Planet? During this lesson, students will discover the journey that a Mars rover embarks upon after being designed by engineers and before being prepared for launch. Students will investigate the fabrication techniques, tolerance concepts, assembly and field-testing associated with a Mars exploratory rover. (less)

Introduction to Music Composition, Fall 2009

Introduction to Music Composition, Fall 2009

" Through a progressive series of composition projects, students investigate the sonic ... (more)

" Through a progressive series of composition projects, students investigate the sonic organization of musical works and performances, focusing on fundamental questions of unity and variety. Aesthetic issues are considered in the pragmatic context of the instructions that composers provide to achieve a desired musical result, whether these instructions are notated in prose, as graphic images, or in symbolic notation. No formal training is required; this version of the class is a general elective suitable for a relatively large-enrollment class. Weekly listening, reading, and composition Assignments and Labs draw on a broad range of musical styles and intellectual traditions, from various cultures and historical periods." (less)

A mission to Mars is never a guaranteed success. During the first of two landings in the Mars Exploration Rover mission, scientists and engineers were full of anticipation and anxiety the night that Spirit was due to land. Would the rover land safely and be able to complete its mission to find out about the geological history of the planet? In this video segment from NOVA, take part in the excitement of the Mars landing and the beginning of a new era of space exploration.

This lesson will start with a brief history of robotics and explain how robots are beneficial to science and society. The lesson then will explore how robots have been used in recent space exploration efforts. The engineering design of the two Mars rovers, Spirit and Opportunity, will be used as prime examples. Finally, the maneuverability of their robotic arms and the functionality of their tools will be discussed. (less)

" This class explores the relationship between music and the supernatural, focusing on the social history and context of supernatural beliefs as reflected in key literary and musical works from 1600 to the present. Provides a better understanding of the place of ambiguity and the role of interpretation in culture, science and art. Explores great works of art by Shakespeare, Verdi, Goethe (in translation), Gounod, Henry James and Benjamin Britten. Readings will also include selections from the most recent scholarship on magic and the supernatural. Writing Assignments and Labs will range from web-based projects to analytic essays. No previous experience in music is necessary. Projected guest lectures, musical performances, field trips." (less)
