Quantum Physics

einsteinQM 4

“One of the most surprising and controversial aspects of quantum physics is that it’s impossible to predict with certainty the outcome of a single experiment on a quantum system. When physicists predict the outcome of some experiment, the prediction always takes the form of a probability for finding each of the particular possible outcomes, and comparisons between theory and experiment

QM

always involve inferring probability distributions from many repeated experiments. All we can predict is probability, and prior to a measurement that determines a particular outcome, the system being measured is in an indeterminate state that mathematically maps to a superposition of all possibilities with different probabilities. ” (Chad Orzel)

Gobekli Tepe and Beyond

Annie Tittensor Independent Researcher

Gobekli Tepe 2GT Night

If anyone had suggested just twenty years ago that post-Ice Age hunter-gatherers were capable of erecting monumental architecture they would have been told in no uncertain terms that this was highly unlikely.

Gobekli TepeThere is so much literature out there now on Gobekli Tepe, it can become quite frustrating to wade your way through it all. I have tried to pull together the most credible of the papers as published by the Archaeological team and indeed by Klaus Schmidt himself (RIP). A thank you also to Sl Coburn for providing two of the articles and Richard Gabriel for his enhanced pillar representation…..

Here are all the links – I will add to the list as and when the information becomes available….

Wemyss Caves

weymss cave 1 weymss cave 2 weymss cave 3

East Wemyss is a former coal-mining village on the south coast of Fife. It is famous for a group of sandstone caves along the shoreline, these having been delved in some far-off time when the waters of the Firth of Firth were higher than today. The cave walls are adorned with ancient carvings, many of which are now hard to discern.
