Some of my core beliefs about the world


I think I have 5 beliefs that fundamentally shape the way I see the world and the way I interact with it. But before I continue, I must write that this self analysis is not based on the concept of core beliefs within psychology, which seems to be more based on beliefs about oneself. Instead the name is just something I came up with to describe 5 beliefs that I hold important in my life.

Here I’ll introduce the two negative beliefs I hold, and in the next post I’ll introduce the 3 positive ones. Continue reading Some of my core beliefs about the world

Nerdy romance The Quantum poem


I decided to write another post about the nerdy romantic things I have done in the past. This one took place around valentine’s day about 2 years ago. That year a few days before valentine’s day me and the other physicist and astronomers of my year had our first quantum mechanics final, at the time I was also a little bit in love with one of the girls in my year, only from a far though I did have some conversations with her but we weren’t really close. Well for valentine’s day I wrote her a love poem with some quantum mechanical concepts mixed in, she didn’t really react the way I had hoped she would but I still like the poem:

The poem of the quantum love:

With the atoms my heart goes

For uncertainty is on the loose

I cannot know where it goes

While I still know where it is

But I hope it will be yours after time has done its work

The quantum mechanical concept I put into the poem is Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle which basically says that you cannot know the position and the momentum(classically mass times velocity) of a particle at the same time.

Black holes


Black holes are something that is depicted a lot in Science fiction. Most of the time they are depicted as massive objects somewhere in space, but not all black holes are like that. A black hole is an object which has an Schwarzschild radius that is larger than its actual radius. The Schwarzschild radius of an object with mass is the distance from that object at which light cannot escape the gravitational pull of the object. Continue reading Black holes
