Some resources on understanding Bell's #quantum inequality
An old Wired article (I like the glasses metaphor) https://www.wired.com/2014/01/bells-theorem/
A great video by MinutePhysics and 3Blue1Brown - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zcqZHYo7ONs
Bell's original paper - https://s3.cern.ch/inspire-prod-files-6/67578c1d19ace842e25198fa5675442e
My thoughts about what’s wrong with the Information Age, nearly summarized in a savage’s reaction to seeing a map for the first time. From McLuhan 1964 @OCRbot
Marshall McLuhan’s book from 1964 remains one of the deepest piece of analysis of the way technology affects us. And some of the things he says are yet to be realized by the general public @OCRbot
TIL that there is such a thing as a Categorical quantum mechanics that studies #quantummechanics using #categorytheory Reading about it in a great book called "Picturing Quantum Mechanics" (large portions of which are available for free here).
Reminds me of the book I started writing some time ago "Category Theory Illustrated". Started a new chapter last week, check it out:
"The 8-hour workday is too profitable for big business, not because of the amount of work people get done in eight hours but because it makes for such a purchase-happy public. Keeping free time scarce means people pay a lot more for convenience, gratification, and any other relief they can buy. It keeps them watching television, and its commercials. It keeps them unambitious outside of work."
Looking through the profiles of the commenters, I found a that MIT has some video lectures on the subject by David Spivak, who is a very good.
But I have to give it to Wolfram, this might be the biggest thing in #physics for the 21-st century:
11 April 2020
John Conway: *dies*
14 April 2020:
Stephen Wolfram: " *I* made what was for me a very surprising and important discovery: that even when the underlying rules for a system are extremely simple, the behavior of the system as a whole can be essentially arbitrarily rich and complex."
(not having a go at the guy, just weid that he is not giving Conway credit)
(Also, RIP John Conway)
It is based on an earlier linocut design
