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.
