I Don’t Know What Parallel Universe I just stepped out of but…

Have you ever seen time do a wobbly thing in front of your eyes that you have passed over as je ne sais quoi?  And kept on going as though you were in your right mind?  Perhaps it was a small wrinkle in the space time continuum.  I have also heard it, in less scientific terms as a brain fart.  It’s like a glitch and lasts but a second but you are left somewhat perplexed.

Anyway I probably have had the best blogging weekend in ages starting with a very early morning post about Odds and Sods  that ended up with my considerations on Bullying/Brutalizing and an argument about over protection and the consideration that if Adversity were needed to build strength, we might be facing a problem.

Then sad news of murder in Long Term Care and thoughts from my own experience in that particular arena sort of fell out my mind onto my screen and before your eyes.

Then I reblogged a post from my dear friend Pat Cegan our Source of Inspiration on Truth.  It was soothing and wonderful.

Then I got caught up in the world of innocence and direct clear language  of 5 yr olds so just had to post that.  And then the bend in the time warp happened.  I saw my stats clearly and posted that I was one hit from 30,000 views and I comment from 3000 comments.

For some reason I went back to check and yup you guessed it.  I was wrong – in error- I must have been looking at an alterverse of me, because and yes this moment in time is the exact number:

VIEWS 29,129

COMMENTS 5,016

Jeesh short a few on views by about 800 and shorted my self on comments by about 2016.

Next time check Christine.  And again Christine especially if a little of space time fabric does a little crease at your eye lever.

 

 

Not Understanding Quantum Physics or Hawking ‘s A Brief History Time and Loving it!

All things universal, time, beginnings and endings intrigue me.  I have read A Brief History of Time more than once, and will continue to read a few more times as each reading helps me understand a little more.   My interest in Quantum Physics started with references Michael Crichton made to it in his book Timeline.  Which I also read repeatedly as it’s a darn good novel.  But it is publications not related to fiction that catch my interest.  

I also understand that there is lots of updated info since the publications of these books.  My twin city Waterloo has grown to become a world respected centre in Physics and multiple other sciences related to these endeavors and Stephen Hawking sits as a researcher at our Waterloo Perimeter Institute and has since 2008. 

Richard Feynman who apparently understands Quantum Mechanics better than anyone is credited with saying, “Nobody understands Quantum Mechanics.” and that is the one line that made me think, heck if no one including the experts do not understand it then I can be comfortable in searching it out and I don’t have to feel like an idiot because no one understands it!

Somehow this all ties into my thoughts on the universe and our connectivity with It and each other.  Our universal mind.

Could I carry on a conversation with those in the know?  Absolutely not.  Would I like to stand in the presence of these great minds? Absolutely.

If I were many years younger would I move heaven and earth to become one of these great minds? You betcha! (Although I may need a greater mind than that which was bestowed on me.)

I will continue to seek, to learn, to dream though because after all this is the new frontier and I do so love having my brain tickled by the very thought.
