Hi my name is Lauren, and I’m a freshman in Texas. My mother forced me to watch this movie about quantum physics this summer called “What the Bleep Do We Know!?”. It’s kind of like quantum physics for beginners. It was a little confusing to follow at times, but I got the general gist which was the following: the universe is best seen as made from thoughts instead of matter, “empty space” is not really empty, matter is not solid (electrons go in and out of existance and it is unknown where they disapear to), nothing really touches anything else because of the electrons, beliefs about who one is and what is real are a direct cause of oneself and one’s own realities, matter can be anywhere and everywhere until you focus on where it is, peptides manufactured in the brain cause a bodily reaction to emotion that can make you sick or addicted to feeling that emotion, so that means all thoughts and emotions are physical. Well that is my best summary of the movie, I would only recomend it if you are into quantum physics or just highly curious because it does require a lot of thinking. My mom must really want me to get into quantum physics because she also gave me this book to read, “The Dancing Wu Li Masters”. I read it for a bit, but then it got boring and too confusing so I quit it, and now after this discussion I think I will start reading it again. In conclusion, if you want to get to know quantum physics on a relatively simple level, I suggest you first watch that movie and then if you find that you want to obain more information, read the book.
Hello everyone! I’m very happy and proud to take part in this whole thing, especially because this is the first project of that kind for Croatia. I wonder have you ever heard of it? In our country, in my point of view, the main problem is that Croatians don’t know much about our environmental responsibility as mankind. It’s such a shame for young people to think about the ones who care about better tomorrow as ” silly nerds.” I hope we’ll change their opinions during these projects. As this is my first post, I would love to share with all of you this fascinating video which ends with sad - but true sentence: ” Only when we accept that we’re not going to live forever will we be able to truly appreciate the short spark of our existence and live our lives fulfilled. ” How do you like it? And what do you do to motivate your friends to participate in projects like this?
P.S. I’m sorry if my English is not as good as yours, hope you’ll understand what I meant to say. :)
