So I went to St. Andrews University with the unbelievably stupid idea that I would be able to "handle" their physics. My university, reading only the course description, thought that fourth semester physics was equivalent to Baylor's second semester physics. I soon realized that they only considered the subject of the topics that were covered, not the mathematical principles that were necessitated by this course. As of now, I am informed that we are using concepts introduced in third semester calculus. I barely passed first semester calculus in my freshman year, which I necessarily endeavored to learn upon my realization of the level of math that was applied. I soon realized that mere cal I was in sufficient and endeavored to learn more mathematics principles to aid my understanding of the physics into which I have been thrust. Although I am making progress, I am coming to realize that this was a complete mistake as I, to this point, have been educated by Aristotelian structures of mathematics and logic; I realize that this makes me a helpless sheep in the presence of the vicious wolves of quantum physics and I want to change so that I am not bound to this outdated form of logic. While I can recite the basic principles of quantum physics that most second semester students of physics are asked to know, I completely lack the mathematical preface for quantum mechanics. Here in Scotland (don't be jealous, I haven't been able to enjoy it since I've been confined to my room on ALL of my free days trying to obtain the principles necessary to understand the calculations I am currently making) the Physics students study ONLY PHYSICS. Last week on a tour of a lab that was experimenting with microscopic macromolecular tweezers, the person leading the tour (a biologist) repeatedly referenced their excision of RNA from a single isolated cell, which I found fascinating, but my fascination was instantly changed to shear horror of my circumstances when one of the physics students on the tour asked "What is RNA." There is no such designation as BS and BA degrees. Rather, One is either a physics student, or a biologist. A chemist, or a Botanist. I would fall under the category of biologist/biochemist/organic chemist, relegated to the confines which Aristotelian thought has defined for me; BUT I HATE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want to break my habitual resort to the Aristotelian description of things as either one thing or the other. I know that an object whose position is certain cannot have a definite momentum and that an objects whose momentum is certain cannot have a definite position but I don't understand why. My mind is dominated by the absolutism of Aristotelian thought, but under this ideology I can no more understand the mathematical principles behind Quantum Mechanics than a dog can understand the theological precepts of historical progression (which I don't even know). Please Help me, I know my request is probably as vague/Stupid as they come, but please; I'm lost, and there is no way out of this situation I've brought myself in to. Please don't be critical, I know I was foolish.
