His(David Bohm) passion for truth carried him wherever it might possibly find nourishment, and his theories consequently reflect tremendous breadth and depth in accounting for a wide range truth that stems from a diverse spectrum of epistemologies.

The 3Ps blog is dedicated to exploring cosmology, quantum physics, and the domains of the very small and the very large with poetic expression of science concepts, philosophy, and history of ideas at the emergent consciousness level by using the "words of science."

Out from here
near the edge of the universe
clear of culture clutter
it's syllables my dear
wandering where
cosmic attractions
search for...the rest
The hologram universe

Go Figure : Poetry

This poem is one kind of a spoof on how math fails poetry or is it the other way around? I would say it depends on the point of view when you look at the figures.

Go Figure: 7 ate six

It was bad geometry
The acute symmetry angles
The scalene triangle mentality
Non attractive forces
Projected on my oblate spheroid sexuality
Bisected her spiral
Asymptotic hyperbolic curvature
Our parts were not functionally related

Like hydrophilic tree pairs
We sucked each other’s crystal purity
Touching only at a single point
The low point of relationships
Where our limits went to zero
Our exponents produced one and only one
Identity fixed at the origin
Silent and wordless
Only a number in time

There is a calculus about all of this
Instantaneous derivatives
Rotating centers of gravity
Gyroscopic spinning navigation aides
Integrating Einstein with Bohr
String theory & Big Bangs
Some Xandu where i
Dematerializes a void into a numberless word

Could 2 have passed so quickly?

Which is to say, if you take a good idea and give it a number it loses its identity no matter how well you express it.

It seems 7 and 6 ended up in an orgy of relative theory and quantum mechanics. Utter chaos. No wonder they lost their identity.

Well done.

(whew! and I made it without one big bang double entendre!)
