Quantum sounds.

Quantum physics is on the brink of many technological breakthroughs. However, the main obstacle is finding the right way to couple and precisely control a sufficient number of quantum systems (e.g. individual atoms). A team of researchers from TU Wien and Harvard University has found a new way to manipulate the quantum universe via tiny mechanical vibrations.

“Normally, diamonds are made exclusively of carbon, but adding silicon atoms in certain places creates defects in the crystal lattice where quantum information can be stored”, says Professor Peter Rabl from TU Wien. These microscopic flaws in the crystal lattice can be used like a tiny switch that can be switched between a state of higher energy and a state of lower energy using microwaves.

Together with a team from Harvard University, Peter Rabl’s research group has developed a new idea to achieve the targeted coupling of quantum memories within the diamond. One by one they can be built into a tiny diamond rod measuring only a few micrometres in length. Then this rod can then be made to vibrate, however, these vibrations are so small that they can only be described using quantum theory. It is through these vibrations that the silicon atoms can form a quantum-mechanical link to each other. (1)

We are unique.

Simply by raising our voice.

Inside a silent cosmos.

And within that silence…

We become one with the universe.

Walking quietly inside the forest.

Being alone and yet full.

Inside a silent cosmos…

The leaves of the trees rustle…

Memories stored inside a diamond.

Eternal. Meaningless.

Stepping on the diamond.

Inside the dirt.

Open your mouth.

Trying to speak…

No sound coming out of your mouth…

The diamond shining more than ever within Earth’s bosom…

Lying. Me? Or you? Feeling unique. [How people distance themselves – or the cosmos – from their lies]

Professor Paul Taylor of Lancaster University in the UK said: “Science has long known that people’s use of language changes when they lie. Our research shows that prevalent beliefs about what those changes look like are not true for all cultures”.

The researchers asked participants of Black African, South Asian, White European and White British ethnicity to complete a Catch-the-Liar task in which they provided genuine and false statements.

They found the statements of Western liars tend to include fewer first-person “I” pronouns than the statements of truth-tellers. This is a common finding and believed to be due to the liar trying to distance themselves from the lie.

However, they did not find this difference when examining the lies of Black African and South Asian participants. Instead, these participants increased their use of first person pronoun and decreased their third person “he/she” pronouns – they sought to distance their social group rather than them self from the lie.

Believe that you are unique.

And you will try to protect yourself.

Believe that you are part of something unique.

And you will try to protect the cosmos.

But you are unique. Only because you are the cosmos itself.

Only if you stop feeling unique will you will understand that…

Start feeling small, in order to start growing.

Babies imitating. Not.

For decades, there have been studies suggesting that human babies are capable of imitating facial gestures, hand gestures, facial expressions, or vocal sounds right from their first weeks of life after birth. But, based on new evidence, researchers reporting in the Cell Press journal Current Biology on May 5, 2016 now say that just isn’t so. After testing young infants repeatedly over their first couple of months, they found no evidence at all that very young infants are capable of imitation.

The main limitation of earlier work is that researchers presented infants with a limited number of gestures. For example, in most studies, researchers only tested infants’ responses to an adult poking out her tongue and opening her mouth. However, the researchers didn’t have adults make any additional gestures or expressions, to see whether infants were truly imitating the adult’s behavior. “If infants also increase their tongue protrusions when an adult models a happy face or finger pointing, then it’s not a case of imitation, but probably excitement at seeing an adult do something interesting”, says Virginia Slaughter of the University of Queensland in Australia. “We eliminated this problem by assessing infants’ responses to a wide range of different models”. The results were quite clear: the infants did not imitate any of the behaviors that they observed. In response to the grownups they saw, they were just as likely to produce a different gesture as they were to produce a matching one.

Slaughter says that this result is not what they’d anticipated. In fact, they set out initially with the goal to examine whether differences in imitation amongst young infants would predict later imitation and other aspects of social development.

The findings now suggest that imitation is not an innate behavior, but one that is learned in babies’ first months. In fact, babies might learn to imitate other people based on watching other people imitate them. (1)

Unique waves. Part of the same ocean.

Unique snowflakes. During the same snowstorm.

Unique people. Imitating one another.

Because they are all too similar.

Part of the same…

Being unique, the Purpose of life & Running… (but not because you like it!) [free will, purpose of life etc]

Runners – couple running

What on earth do runners think about while pounding the pavement mile after mile after mile? Mostly, they think about how miserable they are. At least that’s what a new, first-of its-kind study of elite runners seems to show.

For the study, 10 long-distance runners used audio recorders so they could speak aloud their thoughts while completing an eight-mile run. Then researchers analyzed the recordings — more than 18 hours in all — and found that about 40 percent of the runners’ thoughts pertained to distance and pacing, and about 28 percent had to do with the immediate environment.

But about 32 percent of the thoughts were more along these lines: “I hate this! I hate this! I hate this!”. (1)

Doing things we do not like. Because we “should” like them. Afraid to like what we like. Afraid to accept your own will.

The story of our life…

The world is One. The world is unique. And the whole needs totally unique monads to be complete. Only being totally unique on your own can make you totally embedded in the uniqueness of the One. Only totally unique monads can cover all aspects of One and complete the puzzle.

Let go. You are not unique. You are nothing. Just part of something complete.

And for this, you are unique…

Snowflakes. Not unique after all. Or not?

Each snowflake may not be so unique after all.

While no one snowflake is exactly the same as another on a molecular level, it turns out that all snowflakes fall into one of 35 different shapes, researchers say. Just take a look at this infographic of the different snowflake shapes from chemistry teacher Andy Brunnin, who authors the blog Compound Interest… (1)

We see what we want to see.
We see patterns where there are not.
We see unity where there is not.

How can we trust our brain?
When can we trust our brain?

Oh, little snowflake!

Are you unique?
Are you common?

I choose the third option and say BOTH!

Crazy is my name.
