Two Rutgers physics professors have proposed an explanation for a new type of order, or symmetry, in an exotic material made with uranium. When cooled to 17.5 degrees above absolute zero or lower, the flow of electricity through this material changes subtly. The material essentially acts like an electronic version of polarized sunglasses, he explains. Electrons behave like tiny magnets, and normally these magnets can point in any direction. But when they flow through this cooled material, they come out with their magnetic fields aligned with the material’s main crystal axis.

Understanding = Destroying. [Shestov/ Procrustes]

There seems to be a symmetry behind everything. A symmetry which is hidden and which requires the proper conditions to arise back at the surface. And as Heraclitus of Ephesus said, unseen harmonia is stronger / better than seen. (Greek: Η κρυφή αρμονία είναι καλύτερη από τη φανερή. Ancient Greek: ἁρμονίη ἀφανὴς φανερῆς κρείττων)…
