How does a mathematician or a physicist prepare tea?
Both of them pour water into the pot, light the flame, boil the water, infuse the leaves. What is the difference in the solution, if the pot is already filled with water?
The physicist lights the flame, boils the water, infuses the leaves.
The mathematician pours the water out, thereby reducing the problem to the previous, already solved one.
Hello, I think I thought of a punny joke. Got some open flack on facebook, but I'll give it a try around these parts.
Let’s just assume that all energy exhibits photon-like behavior until it is subject to activity within a field space, at which point it is usurped into some sort energy conveying system such as an electron or proton. These systems manifest in larger systems of energy called atoms and molecules, which in turn constitute systems with even greater complexity, such as cells and organisms.
The question now is, what causes a photon to participate in an electron?
Einstein was selling watches and Newton apples on the market.
Newton to Einstein: "Do you really believe people want buying watches that are both slowering and
weighing more while travelling?"
Einstein: "And do you believe people want fallen fruit?"
