Es ist Fußball-WM, die Leserzahlen ohnehin im Keller, also der richtige Zeitpunkt für die erfahrungsgemäß wenig gelesenen Artikel mit Konferenz- und Reisebildern 🙂

Denkmale gibt es viele, aber eines für die Gravitation, noch dazu von Salvador Dalí – wo soll das sein?



Es handelt sich übrigens nicht um Madrid, wo eine wohl größere, aber sonst identische (?) Version des selben Denkmals steht.

Zur Hilfe noch zwei “Umgebungsfotos”.

    Ist das nicht eine tolle Karriere für ein winziges, kaum auffälliges Figürchen aus einem seiner Bilder? Einmal um die ganze Welt, bis nach Singapur 😉 In ellenlang hoch gabs da auch mal eine Guß-Serie, ein paar hundert Stück groß.

    Dali und Newton in Kombination, das ist für mich persönlich ein absolutes Highlight, da mich die Werke von beiden sehr geprägt haben.
    Leider hat mich meine Urlaubsplanung noch nie zu dieser Statue geführt. Aber das kommt mit Sicherheit noch 😉

    That sign was a hoot. First, I thought you were disisng LQG, but then realised that String Theory is also a Road. The sign does sort of look like an Octopus, though.I notice a post on Reference Frame by you on Global Warming ( a link anyway). Rather than get involved in polemics about how anthropogenic it is, or whether it is hubristic to assume Kyoto and carbon credits will change it, I promote EO Wilson’s view of working and spending to preserve species diversity and habitat. Wilson is a wonderful speaker and author ( The Future of Life, The Ants, The Creation, etc) and has just got a 20 million grant to set up the Encyclopedia of Life, a Wikipedia of all the known species on earth.Wikipedia is a partcipant. The eol website is under development, but you can go there. Acting to preserve habitat is different from doing one;s bit by installing some solar panels ( Gore’s mansion) or buying a twirly GAWDAWFUL fluorescent bulb. The IPCC and Gore-promoted “carbon credits” scheme will be a corrupt shell game like trading derivatives out of thin air ( pardon the pun).Russia is already capitalising on it…soon I think instead of the Nigerian scams, carbon scams will proliferate.

    Warum wird Spam hier nicht gelöscht (#3,#4) ?

    Übrigens erklärte Newton nicht die Gravitation, setzte aber den Scheinbegriff “Masse” in die Welt.

    Das war jetzt schon der dritte Spamkommentar zu diesem Beitrag. Inzwischen hat die Technik unseren Spamfilter aber wieder im Griff.

    Diese logische Erklärung ist also zu hoch für den Horizont eines Mathematikers ?
    Nicht nur.
    Auch Physiker begreifen nicht, dass Materie (und auch Teilchen) nur GEWICHT unter Gravitations-Einfluss haben, aber KEINE MASSE !

    Wow! Another blog by a well-educated person who gives the impiessron that he operates from an intellectual/philosophical position that is beyond reproach how novel! It amuses me that so many develop a delusion that the presuppositions and methods of our endeavors are solidly grounded on absolute and irrefutable ideas so much so that we are now able to state without equivocation that there is no God and no universal moral truth. How refreshing and productive. Hope that works out well for you.Examine your assumptions, presuppositions, rhetoric, vocabulary, and conclusions tell us of their origins and how you came to embrace them so passionately. We each have a personal history from which we cannot detach, just as we collectively have a history. No manner of intellectual contortions will free one from this. However, there is the hope that our capacity to analyze information and acquire understanding of what makes us tic, so to speak, will result in more compassion and justice in our world. Of course I am assuming that these are desireable virtues(picked that idea up in church please don’t hate me!).

    David Foster Wallace sets up mirrors aginsat mirrors and all the high-functioning sarcasm melts and then grows extra limbs. As everyone everywhere has pointed out ages ago, he’s really good at aligning his ideas with his storytelling game. Infinite Jest is absorbing (Year of the Depends Adult Undergarment) in a fanatically careful way, and if DFW ever argues too forcefully and insistently, I can forgive him, because it seems to come from a mighty enthusiasm for being understood. I love Infinite Jest with a full heart and it makes sense that some Columbia MFA student would eventually create Infinite Jest fanfiction.

    This book is packed with so many actaul facts, it seems you poor, liberal sheep can only respond with the most trifling attacks against the obscure Parson Weems, and with your own completely unsupported assertions.Of all the men who attended the Constitutional Convention, only two Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Frankin can be accurately identified as being opposed to organized Christianity. And even they, in arguing for such things as a wall separating church and state, never went so far as to call for the absurd (and unconstitutional) limitations on the free exercise of religion that some on the radical left now espouse.I’m not even Christian, but feel pity for them as constant victims of your secular hate speech and bureaucratic persecution.We should all be grateful that America was, indeed, founded as a Christian nation (nearly all such nations having evolved into liberal democracies over the past half-century) and not as an Islamic, atheist, or pagan one (all such nations being bastions of despotism and poverty to this very day).

    I went over this website and I conceive you have a lot of fantastic information, saved to bookmarks (:.
