Nov 2, 2012 - Until that drink, Plato's notion of a pure world of form to which the world perceived by humans was but a shadow was just something I had come across in books. Apr 7, 2012 - If there's something I have read quite a few instances, it really is that physicists (and by association astronomers), really like symmetry. Oct 21, 2009 - In part three of "What on earth has Teake been doing for the last four years?" I'll talk a little on how symmetry appears in nature. Crystallinity is static and devoid of the many necessary degrees of freedom needed for life. Sep 2, 2009 - Physicists are obsessed with symmetry, perhaps even more than people with an OCD. May 22, 2014 - In his article, which addresses, among other things, the effects on the mentality of nuclear scientists after nuclear testing was banned, he reproduces the thoughts of a former deputy director of nuclear weapons technologies at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Jul 26, 2011 - But is symmetry a thing? And there is much of symmetry about in the organic planet. 3 days ago - 2:41 AM, May 28, 2014 · Sabine Hossenfelder said Giotis, In my (admittedly somewhat sketchy) understanding, the value of the CC is one one of the criteria that distinguish the different compactifications, they may have the same CC but still differ in particle content or symmetry groups, correct me if I'm wrong. Check the mechanism in this seminal paper that started the whole thing (multiverse, 10^500 etc): http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/0004134. When considering this subject, it seems natural to think of symmetric things that appear in nature. Oct 26, 2009 - Mathematicians sometimes (usually) turn things the other way round: They define a group by the properties above, and then observe that the collection of symmetries of an object fits the definition. For 50 years the Nuclear As the stockpile ages far beyond its anticipated life, we can expect a variety of defects which will break the symmetries which were used in the design process. Oct 29, 2008 - Now, the notion of symmetry grew out of things like reflections or rotations of objects in space. It's human nature to look at something symmetric and call it beautiful. Patterns are usually patterns in some space. Aug 8, 2012 - Living things are not crystalline for the most part.
