“Quantum particles: the dreams that stuff is made of.” —Anon

Shrodinger's Fish Tank 1

Maybe life is a long lost friend
The love you live to meet again
Maybe it’s real or just pretend
Maybe it has no separate ends

I have just got a new theory of eternity.

―Albert Einstein

Shrodinger's Fish Tank 2

Life lived in an infinite sea
As deep and dark as mystery
May exist contiguously
In synchronous epiphanies

Your theory is crazy, but it’s not crazy enough to be true.

—Niels Bohr

Shrodinger's Fish Tank 3

Energies change from form to form
From embers may rise a phoenix

Maybe late lamas are reborn
Maybe lost friends return a text

We have no right to assume that any physical laws exist, or if they have existed up until now, that they will continue to exist in a similar manner in the future.

—Max Planck

Shrodinger's Fish Tank 4

Being at once early and late
To a Probability quiz
Entangled in a quantum state
Maybe all is all maybe is

And thus, by combining the uncertainty of chance with the force of mathematical proof and by the reconciliation of two apparent opposites, she derives her name from both of them and rightfully assumes the wonderful name of Mathematics of Chance!

—Blaise Pascal

    • May I quote you on that, Geo.? 😉

      • Throwing out an appropriate quote is one of my very favorite things to do.

        As Mark Twain said, “Substitute ‘damn’ every time you’re inclined to write ‘very;’ your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be.’

  2. Thanks, Geo. Coming from Sam, that’s maybe damn good advice. ; )

    “How lucky Adam was. He knew when he said a good thing, nobody had said it before.” Mark Twain
