Chip daddy Mead: ‘A bunch of big egos’ are strangling science’.
The scientific revolution has stalled, here’s how to kickstart it
http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/02/20/carver_mead_on_the_future_of_science ISSCC Microelectronics pioneer, Caltech professor emeritus, and all-around smart guy Carver Mead believes that the scientific revolution that began with the discovery of special relativity and quantum mechanics has stalled, and that it’s up to us to kickstart it. “A bunch of big egos got in the way,” he told his audience of 3,000-plus chipheads at the International Soild-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in San Francisco on Monday. Much more work needs to be done to restart that revolution, Mead said, with the goal of explaining in an intuitive way how all matter in the universe relates to and affects all other matter, and how to explore those interrelationships in a way that isn’t “buried in enormous piles of obscure mathematics.”
I agree. I personally do not need this anymore:
21st Century humans can do better:
Nick Cook, who was aviation editor for Jane’s Defence Weekly, provides an excellent, yet tip of the iceberg, synopsis of antigravity’s possibilities, in his book ”The Hunt For Zero Point” .
It is time to retrieve the baby, who was thrown out, both deliberately and unknowingly, with the bathwater. E=MC2’s possibilities extend far beyond nuclear power or the atomic bomb, more closely characterizing the potential in the ancient phrase “let there be light”. The quantity C, by definition is light’s velocity. The quantity C, light’s velocity, is also the kinetic energy equivalent of the mass energy of matter (light stationary becomes matter). …..And by the very nature of its definition, the quantity C becomes the radius of curvature of all natural law (ROC). This recognition with applied ROC principle, opens all doors to LIMITS, both physical and of the mind. And to top it off, it is 4th grade comprehension. That’s 4th grade elementary school.
Being told, “Adapt to the threat of climate change”, runs counter to everything I understand about freedom, and the wonders of scientific possibilities.
