1937 Nobel Prize in Physics : Clinton Joseph Davisson and George Paget Thomson

The Nobel Prize in Physics 1937 was awarded jointly to Clinton Joseph Davisson and George Paget Thomson “for their experimental discovery of the diffraction of electrons by crystals.”

We think we understand the regular reflection of light and X rays – and we should understand the reflections of electrons as well if electrons were only waves instead of particles … It is rather as if one were to see a rabbit climbing a tree, and were to say ‘Well, that is rather a strange thing for a rabbit to be doing, but after all there is really nothing to get excited about. Cats climb trees – so that if the rabbit were only a cat, we would understand its behavior perfectly.’ Of course, the explanation might be that what we took to be a rabbit was not a rabbit at all but was actually a cat. Is it possible that we are mistaken all this time in supposing they are particles, and that actually they are waves?

Well, 1 do not need to enumerate to you the many reasons we have for believing–I may say for knowing–that electrons are actually particles.

Clinton Joseph Davisson (May 1928). “Are Electrons Waves?”. J. Franklin Institute

Discoveries in physics are made when the time for making them is ripe, and not before.

Clinton Joseph Davisson

The influence of science on men’s lives comes in two rather different ways, one through the ideas themselves, and the other through their material.

Sir George Paget Thomson

An electron is like an able guerrilla leader who occupies a wide area with rumors of his presence, but when he strikes, he strikes with his whole force.

The progress of science is a little like making a jig-saw puzzle. One makes collections of pieces which certainly fit together, though at first it is not clear where each group should come in the picture as a whole, and if at first one makes a mistake in placing it, this can be corrected later without dismantling the whole group.

Having no desire also is a desire only ?

“When there is no desire,

all things are at peace.” 

-Lao Tzu

(570-490 BC)

ram H singhal footnote

Having no desire also is a desire only ?

so what exactly Lao Tzu  want us to understand ….. I will try to explain taking help of some mythological stories which have deep scientific understanding of human brain , mind and Psychology

Indian Language Hindi is so simple and scientific …..   one thing good about it is as it is spoken so also is written  ……. so are most of the languages of the world

but since Born in India so understand Indian Language Hindi well  …… will show you from the Hindi words below essence of wisdom hidden behind these words ….. which will give us help to understand Lao Tzu words of wisdom more precisely.

मन  ( man) =    there is no equivalent word in English but nearest word is ….MIND …..

but  मन  is a bridge between body and soul …..

In Indian Mythological story Ramayana it is represented by 10 head

demon RAVANA …. each head representing our senses …..

मनन  ( manan )=  Analysis of a subject deeply inside brain  …..

the micro vision …it like churning the ocean or mind  ……

again a epic story Samudra Manthan ……

a symbol of fight between good and bad ….. positive and negative thinking …..  

Demons are called ASUR means no harmony ……

Gods are called SUR means harmony ……

and out of this comes is nectar that is AMRITA …..

the timelessness …..

all spiritual practices are tools to find this AMRITA or timelessness ……

and NAMASTE  is symbol of respact to timelessness in each other ….

नमन (Naman)  = it t true meaning is Surrender

is

the bow to the wish of divine ……

it is a wisdom word which remains same even we reverse it ……

and is a Key to keep a balance of mind in good or bad situations  ……

in India people take good or bad happening in life as wish of God

so

remain more clam and need much less physiological help .

अमन  (aman ) =  its true meaning is peace

and happens with balance of mind or being neutral like Referee in a match of life .

and this natural harmony brings peace and puts us at center of our being

….. Lord RAMA in the picture at top  puts an arrow in the naval which is the root chakra  even in atom the center is neutral zero …..

living with zero is SUNAYATA and that is absolute peace

सुमन (suman)  = it means the flower  

and absolute peace flowers our soul ….

flower is a symbol of enlightenment ……

softness and sensitivity of heart …… 

चमन  (Chaman ) = it means Garden of soul flowers …..

fragrance to be in this world …..

living with the fragrance is Enlightenment 360° .

lo

Love All.

1936 Nobel Prize in Physics : Victor Franz Hess and Carl David Anderson

The Nobel Prize in Physics 1936 was divided equally between Victor Franz Hess “for his discovery of cosmic radiation” and Carl David Anderson “for his discovery of the positron.”

From a consideration of the immense volume of newly discovered facts in the field of physics, especially atomic physics, in recent years it might well appear to the layman that the main problems were already solved and that only more detailed work was necessary.

Victor Franz Hess

In order to make further progress, particularly in the field of cosmic rays, it will be necessary to apply all our resources and apparatus simultaneously and side-by-side; an effort which has not yet been made, or at least, only to a limited extent.

Victor Franz Hess

The atom can’t be seen, yet its existence can be proved. And it is simple to prove that it can’t ever be seen. It has to be studied by indirect evidence – and the technical difficulty has been compared to asking a man who has never seen a piano to describe a piano from the sound it would make falling downstairs in the dark. — Carl David Anderson

The ideal student would be one who was not working for grades but was working because he was interested in the work and not trying to compete with fellow students. — Carl David Anderson

illimitable Superior Spirit

My religion consists of a humble admiration

of the

illimitable superior spirit

who reveals itself in

the slight details

we are able to perceive

with our frail and feeble mind.

Albert Einstein 

(14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955)

was a German-born theoretical physicist 

who developed the general theory of relativity, effecting a revolution in physics.

For this achievement,

Einstein is often regarded as the father of modern physics 

and the most influential physicist of the 20th century.

While best known for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2 

(which has been dubbed “the world’s most famous equation”),

 he received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics “for his services to theoretical physics,

 and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect.

The latter was pivotal in establishing quantum theory within physics.

1935 Nobel Prize in Physics : James Chadwick

Since the atom, as a whole, is neutral, there must be a positive charge associated with the atom equal in amount to the sum of the negative charges. The electrical forces between the positive and negative charges preserve the equilibrium of the atom.
James Chadwick

I think we shall have to make a real search for the neutron.
James Chadwick

Feb. 27, 1932: Neutron Discovered; A-Bomb on the Way

1932: English physicist James Chadwick publishes a letter on the existence of the neutron. His discovery helps clear the way for splitting the nuclei of even the heaviest atomic elements, making possible the development of the atomic bomb.

Unlike the proton, the other large subatomic particle that helps form the nucleus of an atom, the neutron contains no electric charge. This enables it to pass through the electric barrier of heavy atoms to penetrate and split their nuclei, the basis of the nuclear chain reaction.

For his discovery of the neutron, Chadwick was first awarded the Hughes Medal by the Royal Society in 1932 and, three years later, the Nobel Prize for Physics for year 1935.

The radioactive processes thus reveal an enormous store of energy resident in the atoms. No indications of this had been observed previously, because the chemical and physical forces at our disposal were not sufficient to cause atoms to break up into simpler forms.

I remember the spring of 1941 to this day. I realized then that a nuclear bomb was not only possible—it was inevitable. … And I had then to start taking sleeping pills. It was the only remedy, I’ve never stopped since then. It’s 28 years, and I don’t think I’ve missed a single night in all those 28 years.
— Sir James Chadwick

Art of Timeless Happiness

Energy Balance of Atom as well as of entire cosmos is Zero.

In this balance past and present hangs on the two sides of Horizontal Bar 0f Time .

but balancing in the center is the

Vertical dimension of Timelessness.

Balancing in the center is the Meditation on Neutral Mind of Zero

and

that is

Art of Timeless Happiness.

Science and Spirituality


we are mixture of time body and timeless soul.

Mind ( मन ) is a fluid energy field

between

Right brain ( our emotional intelligence or feminine brain representing nature of  timeless soul )

and

left brain ( our logical intelligence or masculine brain representing nature of body in time )

if we approach from micro vision of body which is modern science  then mind is complex

but

if we approach from macro vision of soul which  is spirituality then it is most simple.

In Hindi we have a word MANAN ( मनन )  ….means analysis this is micro vision and very complex

and

other word is NAMAN ( नमन ) ….means surrender to the wish of God or hug life with gratitude ….macro vision and very simple.

Choice is ours .

Love All.

Spiritual Science of Namaste

Mind ‘ is the bridge between right and left brain,

soul and body ,

subjective and objective,

emotional intelligence and logical intelligence ,

space and time,

vertical dimension (beyond time) and horizontal dimension (with in time ) ,

“Meditation” is a science to fill this gap between past and future, to experience present.

Taste of present is blissful Happiness.

Namaste

is one of the most simple  spiritual science

to mirror God within and taste Blissful Happiness

and

also to greet the other person

with

that same feeling of divinity and happiness .
