The search for constancy Indeed human nature requires us to search for consistency and constancy. However in mother nature as with human nature we see little constancy and even less of consistency. Is it possible that we are trying to prove constancy where in fact there is none? If I knew mathematics and physics as intimately as you guys, my first action would be to allow inconsistency to exist as an inherent variable. Does this already exist in mathematics? For example One litre of water weighs how much? The answer depends on so many variables, from local gravity to ambient temperature, minerals in the water, even the moon’s position would have an effect, etc etc. So to say that a litre of water weighs “X” amount with out allowing for unknown variables would be a mistake. I feel this approach needs to be applied especially to the study of the very small where variations in constancy would have the greatest effect. How do you guys feel about this?
