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

Creative Writing People retell the story


“a word riot at the corner of i & j
when the grammar cops arrived
all they found was a math convention
a unit vector n pointing up from the corner of i & j
like an upward screwed right hand thumb
the figurative language authorities were not amused
they suspected a misspelling or worse, an acronym
wry, rye, maybe why not or could it be knot
had they been sucked into a quantitative plot
a wry knot engineered to make them look foolish
they vowed not to let the meaning escape them

no English major would italicize without reason
or could it be simply a poor choice of font
were the I, J and K just to delineate points
connecting the dots was essential
when they triangulated the evidence
they made an obtuse interpretation
the logic of poetry revealed an identity—
the vector cross product direction and magnitude
of the symbolic language they were investigating
proved the anagram trio was algebraic —
they had saved a victim from a math pathology

"You can learn about language just by playing with symbolic relationships."
