12. Is Will stronger than Gravity?

Why is it that when we sleep or lose consciousness, we fall over?

Why do our heads, the heaviest part of our bodies, tower over our little, feeble looking feet?

Is our will more powerful than Gravity?

Why is Gravity so weak? I know it is a question that has pestered the mind of many scientists for several decades. I am not a scientist, but it has pestered me also.

Perhaps, Gravity is one more fallacy. One more dark alleyway in the path of knowledge. Who knows….

11. What are Little Universes Made off?

Surely, of sugar, spice and all things nice, and, of course, snips and snails and puppy-dogs’ tails. But most fascinatingly, little universes are made of unknown bits and bobs and things that jump in the dark. Indeed, they are IT: THE DARK; that unknown mysterious other that we can’t see, and yet, we know it is there.

I get a sort of perverse pleasure when I hear the following statements by some very distinguished physicists in an old Horizon programme* I’ve been watching over and over again:

“We have no idea what 95% of the Universe is.”

“They say that cosmologists are always wrong but never in doubt.”

“How does any theorist sleep at night knowing that the Standard Model of Physics is wrong by so many orders of magnitude?

With that level of mystery, that amount of unknown, I am always surprised when supposedly intelligent, rational people, including respected scientists, deny the possible existence of anything beyond their current knowledge. I don’t know if God or fairies, angels and strange universes with weird life forms exist, but I wouldn’t dare to deny the possibility.

I suspect, on close examination, old tales and ancient religious myths might be found to be just a way to explain phenomena that science is just starting to glimpse.

*Horizon programmes always seem as ‘dated’ as me after four marriages! I have had plenty of dates. We viewers aren’t given even the production date. With the speed at which science changes from one day to the next, books become obsolete in a few years; the Internet is not necessarily reliable. Perhaps my only chance of being up to date, might be to go on a science course.

10. Is Time Absolutely Relative?

  1. Is Time Absolutely Relative?

3rd April 2015

Does time exist outside the human creation of it as a way of measuring change, displacement, and movement?

How could the Universe start, bang, inflate at a given moment if the time line didn’t exist?

If scientists speak of a “before” the beginning of the Universe, doesn’t the use of the word “before” imply the existence of a time “before”?

How can anything start at any given time if there is not a point where to start?

If space and time are one dimension, if something could stay absolutely, not relatively, still, what would happen to time?

Is eternity, stillness? Can we achieve it? Can the mind be still and instil stillness into time?

If time is the 4th dimension of space, does time increase space in any direction?

I wish I could understand space/time but every time I try I fail!

9. Mindless Electricity

Tonight we celebrate The Earth Hour. We are suppose to switch off the lights.

Wouldn’t it be The Human Century, when we dedicate to the development of the mind the same amount of time, energy, thought and resources we have dedicated for the last 300 years to the invention, development, manufacture, industrial production, sales and distribution of all the inhuman, mindless, yet amazingly useful artefacts that surround us?

Telephones, Internet, and all communication devices would be replaced by telepathy.

Tele-transportation would make cars, planes, etc. pointless.

Telekinesis would make transportation of goods unnecessary.

Our minds would be so entertained that we wouldn’t need entertainment…

Hang on! We probably wouldn’t need bodies.

That might be a bit boring…

About Holes of any Colour

The Science of the Improbable

As ever wondering inside the holes of my mind….

Are black holes made of anything?

Is a hole made of anything?

What are the physical properties of holes?

Are holes made of emptiness? Or filled with emptiness? In that case, are they still holes?

What is the physical composition of a hole?

Can we create holes or do we simply open spaces for them to fill.

Are holes something?

Why is that ‘whole’ has a hole in the middle?

Are saints holy because they are whole or because they are hole in the middle? Probably both?

Are, holes?

Everyday MIracles…

When I was a child, just like Alice in Wonderland, I used to dream of at least 6 impossible things before breakfast. Amongst them, cars made of plastic with a hard core that would keep people safe inside the inner shell, clothes hangers that would stop clothes from shrinking, magical foods that would make my hair grow below my waist…

I never imagine in those wild dreams that I could write full books without the pain of handwriting – anyone who has seen me doing it, will know why! – and even better writing music! All that magic has happened for all of us. I am here in my sitting room communicating with people at the other side of the world, without pain and without more cost than a few minutes of my time…

So, thank you to all the ingenuity and manufacturers who keep providing us with more and more miracles.

I look forward though, to a time when we devote as much time, energy and attention to develop our mental capacities to the same or higher level than the level we have developed our gadgets, contraptions and ‘outside the body’ ways to explore and transform our world.
