8 comments for “Ozy and Millie: Scoring serenity

  1. Ozy, it’s not that much of an accomplishment. All things in life follow the laws of quantum mechanics, just primarily in much smaller manners than this example. However, take anything that measurement of would defy the continuity of, such as serenity or, to a lesser extent, silence, and you get large-scale quantum objects. See my upcoming paper to be zen-published by my zen-blog (In other words, I don’t want to publish).

  2. Well, electrons don’t actually have discrete orbits, they have probability wave-functions (a range of values, non-integer) and four quantum numbers. Magnetic spin is plus or minus 1/2, a non-integer. What’s a quantum “score”? The principal quantum number, the energy and size of the wave function, roughly called ‘orbital’? Those are integers.
