I have done my share

“Einstein died at Princeton Hospital, so I headed there first. But it was chaos — journalists, photographers, onlookers. So I headed over to Einstein’s office at the Institute for Advanced Studies.

When Morse walked into Einstein’s office, he snapped a photo of the desk where Einstein had been working just hours before.

“I have done my share.

Hours before his death, Einstein’s doctors proposed trying a new and unproven surgery as a final option for extending his life. Einstein simply replied, “I have done my share, it is time to go. I will do it elegantly.

We cannot predict the value our work will provide to the world. That’s fine. It is not our job to judge our own work . It is our job to create it, to pour ourselves into it, and to master our craft as best we can.

We all have the opportunity to squeeze every ounce of greatness out of ourselves that we can. We all have the chance to do our share.

Albert Einstein

Knower  of God

Atheist = A scientist with microscopic vision of logical intelligence = right eye with two-dimensional vision.

Theist = A scientist with macroscopic vision of emotional intelligence = left eye with two-dimensional vision.

yoga  or union of both eye’s vision fields brings third dimension of depth  also, with this vision correction one will graduate from  non believer and believer to knower  of God.

The Nobel Prize in Physics 1943

A simple calculation shows that from the classical theory follows that we should find a broadening of the beam with the maximum intensity on the place of the beam without field. However, from the quantum theory follows that we should find there no intensity at all, and deflected molecules on both sides. The beam should split up in two beams corresponding to the two orientations of the magnet. The experiment decided in favor of the quantum theory.“ —  Otto Stern

The Nobel Prize in Physics 1939

The Nobel Prize in Physics 1939 was awarded to Ernest Orlando Lawrence “for the invention and development of the cyclotron and for results obtained with it, especially with regard to artificial radioactive elements.”

“Ernest Orlando Lawrence discovery of cyclotron is to nuclear science what Galileo’s telescope was to astronomy … his buoyant optimism spread to everyone around him and accounted for the attainment of many an ‘impossible’ objective.”

GLENN SEABORG ( Nobel Prize in Chemistry Winner 1951 }

I am mindful that scientific achievement is rooted in the past, is cultivated to full stature by many contemporaries and flourishes only in favorable environment. No individual is alone responsible for a single stepping stone along the path of progress, and where the path is smooth progress is most rapid. In my own work this has been particularly true.

— Ernest Orlando Lawrence ( Nobel Prize banquet speech (29 Feb 1940) )

The day when the scientist, no matter how devoted, may make significant progress alone and without material help is past. This fact is most self-evident in our work. Instead of an attic with a few test tubes, bits of wire and odds and ends, the attack on the atomic nucleus has required the development and construction of great instruments on an engineering scale.

Gratitude Bath

Good and God’s morning ….. 

this morning while walk in the nearby garden , Moon is still there and little dark ….but after some time there comes a time when light and darkness is in equilibrium

It is regarded that prayers made at this time reach directly to the God. Early Morning Shloka (Sloka) is given here which also serves as the first prayer of the day to the almighty.

कराग्रे वसते लक्ष्मिः करमध्ये सरस्वति ।
करमूले तु गोविन्दः प्रभाते करदर्शनम् ॥
Karaagre Vasate Lakssmih Karamadhye Sarasvati |
Karamuule Tu Govindah Prabhaate Karadarshanam ||

The front part of the hands (the finger tips) is credited to Goddess Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth…. 

The middle part or palm is credited to Goddess Saraswati, the Goddess of learning……

and the root (the part of hand near the wrist) to Govinda or divine God … 

So, every morning, one should have a reverent look at one’s hand which represents sincere labor or worship of work ….

what exactly one do is rub both hands lightly and then with both palms cover both eyes ….. rubbing 2 or 3 times the hands …. the effect it has inside is equilibrium between objective brain and subjective brain …..

and this equilibrium of horizontal dimension of time which is linear between past and future and vertical dimension of timelessness brings us to a dimension of now or present which we can feel but can not put into words …. 

to feel this presence without words is true meditation and art of seeing the beauty of divine …..

seeing the first ray of sunlight and as sun comes on the horizon ….our whole family will fold our hands in gratitude to Sun God …..so almost 30 years ago my elder son asked me ….. father does you think Sun is God ?….. 

I replied …..God or no God does not matter …..who ever do good to you is God ….. so for me Sun is God ……. Earth is God ….. every atom is God ….you are God …..your mother is God …

with this sincere prayer for earth …

Samudravasane Devi Parvatastanamandale, 
Vishhnupatni Namastubhyam Paadasparsham Kshamasva Me

I bow to Mother Earth, who has mountains and jungles on her body and whose clothing is made by the ocean. The wife of Lord Vishnu, please pardon me for touching you with my feet. 

what a way to have a Gratitude Bath …Wisdom of scientific and spiritual way of  living civilization …. I call it Sanatana Dharma ……. the Law Of Eternal Zero

with love and gratitude to everything and to all my divine friends and world family …

love all…

Pope of Physics : Enrico Fermi

Enrico Fermi, (born Sept. 29, 1901, Rome, Italy—died Nov. 28, 1954,  U.S.), Italian-born American scientist who was one of the chief architects of the nuclear age. He developed the mathematical statistics required to clarify a large class of subatomic phenomena , explored nuclear transformations caused by neutrons, and directed the first controlled chain reaction involving nuclear fission . He was awarded the 1938 Nobel Prize for Physics, and the Enrico Fermi Award of the U.S. Department of Energy  is given in his honour. Femilab the National Accelerator Laboratory, in Illinois, is named for him, as is Fermium , element number 100.

Experimental confirmation of a prediction is merely a measurement. An experiment disproving a prediction is a discovery. Enrico Fermi 

When asked what he meant by a miracle: Oh, anything with a probability of less than 20%. Enrico Fermi 

It is not good to try to stop knowledge from going forward. Ignorance is never better than knowledge. Enrico Fermi 

The fact that no limits exist to the destructiveness of this weapon [the ‘Super’, i.e. the hydrogen bomb] makes its very existence and the knowledge of its construction a danger to humanity as a whole. It is necessarily an evil thing considered in any light. For these reasons, we believe it important for the President of the United States to tell the American public and the world what we think is wrong on fundamental ethical principles to initiate the development of such a weapon. Enrico Fermi 

Never underestimate the joy people derive from hearing something they already know. Enrico Fermi

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 

Clinton Davisson - Alchetron, The Free Social Encyclopedia

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.

Sir George Paget Thomson

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.

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
