Joshua Done, a science fiction writer, chose to follow my personal account recently. And today, I'm delighted to say, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory brought Quantumology into its collection! Their profile reads, "scientists and engineers are transforming the world through courageous discovery and innovation" which sounds pretty exciting to me, so I look forward to a fruitful exchange of propositions and ideas which lend weight to the transformations this world so desperately needs.
We are already treading a fine line between science and philosophy, with new challenges arising from questions of sentience. What constitutes an observer in the quantum sense is a pressing issue, and the realism of our being observed closely by the Universe (via the many means available to it!) increases as we delve into quandaries and paradoxes being posed by Dark Matter candidacy and New Physics. Cosmology, too, is pushing the boundaries as it begins to unravel the life cycles of planets and stars, finding symmetries which mirror our own creation and development. There is still a long way to go before we can rest comfortably in our association with the rest of the Universe and accept the small but significant role we play in its evolution and learning process. The more minds open to the possibilities surrounding these questions, the more possibilities will be open to us for exploration.
