Physics according to Rip

The only photograph of me that I like!

Over hundreds of thousands of years our species evolved a pervasive classical perception.
This perception is so entrenched that far too many of us really think, "What you see is what you get."
      While this is good enough for everyday activities,
            including flying to the Moon,
                  it is profoundly inadequate for really comprehending Reality.

About one hundred years ago we started figuring out that reality is, at a deeper level, quantum mechanical.
      To go beyond a superficial understanding of the universe
            we must break free of the classical constraints
                  our evolutionary past has imposed upon us.

I read a couple of interesting comments a while ago:

For a revolution involve black people. For reform involve white people.

If you expose someone's malfeasance, you didn't get them into trouble, they did that to themselves.

Please Explain :

Florida (State)

          22,000,000 people / 65,755 mi2 ⟹ 334.58 people / mi2

New York (State)

          19,500,000 people / 54,555 mi2 ⟹ 357.44 people / mi2

Metro New York (Urban Megalopolis)

          18,804,000 people / 13,318 mi2 ⟹ 1411.92 people / mi2

If you don't understand why I would never consider voting for Biden, you either don't know Biden, or you find him to be an acceptable candidate to represent your point of view.

I know Biden for his positions and voting record over many years. Biden is not better than Trump by any meaningful measure. We need to be looking to improve the situation in this country. Neither of these candidates has anything to offer to repair the damage done over the past several decades. Neither is capable of speaking truth to power.

Perhaps we may someday have an opportunity to participate in developing details of how we can create a more just society. I don't hold out much hope for that becoming a Reality.

A less than honest interpretation of "I will never tell you how to vote, if I do, don't listen to me." was posted on line in 2020.

        I got into a fight with 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

        I found 5 to be the mean one.

        We all need to be a bit more like Greta Thunberg

Person of the Year, Time
Trump did not like Greta's UN speech of 23 September 2019. She used his words to update her profile.

Following UN Speech
Greta received the Time: Person of the Year award, 11 December 2019. She used Trump's words to update her profile.

Conservatives are not capable of learning the truth, nor can they understand the concept of advocacy.

Deeply Unethical!
