Symmetry is the Synthesis

"I do not see how a man can work on the frontiers of physics and write poetry at the same time. They are in opposition", is the quote from Physicist Paul Dirac. The responsion from planksip® is in the titles and image curation. Enjoy.

Symmetry is the Synthesis

I do not see how a man can work on the frontiers of physics and write poetry at the same time. They are in opposition.

Symmetry is the Synthesis

I do not see how a man can work on the frontiers of physics and write poetry at the same time. They are in opposition.
— Paul Dirac (1902-1984)

The titled responsion implies an elegance of sorts. The ordered arrangement that Paul is referring to is physics in itself and reminds me of Plato's prerogative to banish the poets.

I can't help but reflect on this quote from Paul and poke fun at it in a way that could review some humility, rather than hubris. Let me explain.

Imagine a physicist at work developing a theory that describes the world in a way that hasn't been understood before, as Paul refers to these frontiers as being antithetical to writing poetry. Is Paul saying that it's impossible for a physicist to simultaneously work on physics and write poetry, or is he saying that the ideal physicist is incapable of writing poetry?

As you can see, there are two ways to interpret this quote from Paul. The wisdom that emerges is a matter of fact and the limit of our minds. For me, the immersive experience that is physics and mathematics is poetic in its highest form.

I am not making this claim to offer anything abrasive to Paul's idea that poetry and physics are not compatible. If you isolate the time frame to the present, the physicist can articulate abstract thought in the form of poetry.

As far as I can imagine, if this same physicist were to finish his day job, go home, and write a haiku, sonnet, or free verse poem, I can't see anything physical or psychological that would prevent this physicist from doing so.

I am not sure any of this relates to Planck time because my point above is a time frame from which we can extrapolate, experience, and explore. When it comes to Planck time, we can't consciously experience Planck time, we can, however, extrapolate and explore it. In my opinion, poetry is an ideal way to do so.

Sell in Planck Time

The story of the human race is the story of men and women selling themselves short.
— Abraham Maslow (1908-1970)

The titled responsion is an absolute, a limit, and a theoretical minimum.

A momentary monetary exchange captured on a phosphorus screen, this distance between probabilistic outcomes is the only constant in an accelerating universe expansion. At least this is my best guess, are you buying what I am selling?

Abraham Maslow - planksip
Abraham Maslow was a psychologist who was best known for creating Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, a theory of psychological health predicated on fulfilling innate human needs in priority.

The story of mankind is simply the account of people undercutting themselves, making do far short of what they are genuinely prepared to do. In all actuality, we're intended to flourish. We came into this world with a greater number of gifts and capacities than the vast majority of us actually use. Our latent capacity is possibly drawn from us when we are centered around our qualities and grasp who we truly are. As you develop, you understand the vast majority are negligent of our general public's strife and their lack of opportunity.

There isn't anything more terrible than carrying on with a day-to-day existence that another person intended for you. The framework is planned so the dominant part fizzle, which is what they are doing. That's it. Here are the five misfortunes of carrying on with an unremarkable life.

Ensured lament.

The two most significant days in an individual's life are the day they were conceived, and the day they discover why.
— John Maxwell

The main lament from individuals on their passing beds is that they made do with what others expected of them since they were never daring enough to seek after their fantasies. Looking back at their lives, what stood apart the most was their unreached objectives and desires. They are regularly spooky by choices that brought about the lives they wound up with.

The probability of disappointment is expanded when you're attempting to fit into others' desires for you. The more you settle, the more lament you will in the end have.

Decreased innovativeness.

From kindergarten to school we are advised how to think, what to retain, and how to fit in. A significant reason for average quality is that the vast majority haven't had a unique idea for quite a long time.

You get admonished and condemned when you stick out. However, the business enterprise is the specific inverse. The significant serenity from realizing you are progressing toward your vision opens inventiveness. To flourish, you should continually extend your mindfulness, express your inventive virtuoso, and develop yourself daily. The best commitment you will make to the world is turning into the best form of yourself, which won't occur if you attempt to fit in.

Negligible encounters.

Eventually, life is an undertaking. Encounters and recollections are what separate the tip-top lives from the unremarkable. Elite individuals are continually making noteworthy encounters.

What's the purpose of accomplishing something in case you're not having some good times and it doesn't lift your passionate recurrence? Why not take a smaller than expected experience (half-day/end of the week) each five to seven? This shakes you out of carelessness, which is the most noticeably terrible thing on earth. Work out your undertakings toward the start of the year, and ensure you generally have trips anticipated in your future.

As indicated by, 76 percent of our general public is now living check to check. It's difficult to make extraordinary encounters with negligible compensation. Cash does make a difference.

Harmful connections.

Unremarkableness cherishes average quality, and hopelessness truly adores organization. There are an excessive number of haters, bullshitters, and losers loathing determined workers nowadays. Avoiding unremarkableness and poisonous individuals has a quick effect on your energy, significant serenity, and inspiration level.

Try not to hold tight to the individuals who whine, groan, play casualty, and keep making do with short of what they are able to do. You must ensure your past is more splendid than your future, and the individuals you encircle yourself with put stock in you, empower you, and increase your expectations.

Award Cardone reminded me two or three weeks back, "if you have in no way different companions you had in secondary school, you likely haven't become definitely." Ouch. If you're drawing nearer to your fantasies, while most are moving towards unremarkableness, you will undoubtedly run into haters.

A Fair Heritage

The most noticeably terrible of all. You leave a path of unremarkableness behind you. You infrequently observe an incredible business person who had average guardians, except if they found an extraordinary tutor en route.

Eventually, you should understand it's not about just you; it's about those you rouse, the individuals who admire you, and those depending on you. 71 percent of individuals disdain what they do and are effectively separated at work. If you don't care for what you do, even 1 percent, it's an ideal opportunity to venture up and roll out certain improvements. The more you settle, the more you lament. You just get this life ONCE, so kindly don't spend it doing things you disdain. You make your heritage with each text, each word, tweet, and activity.

Activity step: Be a good example to the individuals who admire you.

While you have a lot of years to live, make certain to set aside a few minutes for arriving at your fantasies. Begin moving in the direction of your objectives now. Try not to continue postponing things until it's past the point of no return. Disclose to yourself every day that presently matters. Be deliberate with your life since that is where you'll feel the most invigorated, the most clever, and the most innovative.

The more you adjust to society and others' desires, the higher possibility of disappointment. You should intentionally pick another mental self-view and life. The battle to manufacture it into reality by reliably adjusting your musings and practices to make it so. Time is ticking.
