This is my latest intrigue:

The more precisely the position is determined, the less precisely the momentum is known in this instant, and vice versa.
–Heisenberg, uncertainty paper, 1927

This is a succinct statement of the “uncertainty relation” between the position and the momentum (mass times velocity) of a subatomic particle, such as an electron. This relation has profound implications for such fundamental notions as causality and the determination of the future behavior of an atomic particle.

I really, really, want to see what happens if I try to make a Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle piece. Also, it has been suggested that I should make a piece about someone’s Minds’ Eye with Astigmatism, because they can’t imagine what an Uncertainty Principle tile might look like. This makes me laugh, and I think it must be done.

Also, its almost finals week, so this might happen sooner rather than later. But we shall see.

This seems similar, from what I remember of this day:
