## Science & the Natural Laws

How can light be both a wave and particle?

What’s life, and what’s to distinguish it from a machine?

Time is a line, space is spread out.

Matter is a point, energy is spread out. But time is spiritual, and energy is spiritual, so it's reversed. Why? (See The Spiritual & Physical)

At what point does QM take over from the everyday world? At what level of smallness?

What exactly is a wave?

How did they figure out that it was the square of the height of the probability wave that has physical meaning? How did they get this from the equation for the wave function?

What would happen if you opened up the two “spin boxes” at the same time?

If everything in the quantum world is truly random, how can the Pauli Exclusion Principle be true?

If light doesn’t travel at infinite speed, why would it take infinite energy to accelerate a body to the speed of light?

Why does velocity have to be measured relative to something else?Why can’t it be measured against some imaginary fixed point?

How can the universe not have a boundary?

How can the universe be accelerating if everything’s decelerating?

What would have gotten the singularity to explode? After all, black holes attract everything to themselves – they don’t explode and expand and expand and expand.

Ironic that chaos actually allows for extreme order through mode locking.

Can energy be turned into matter? Or does it only go one way?

Is light a particle, or does it merely behave as a particle? I suppose you might be asking, “What’s the difference? If it behaves as a particle, doesn’t that make it a particle?” to which I would respond, “Good question. Is that sufficient to make it a particle?”

Electromagnetism -- which is physical, which spiritual?

Something to think about: entropy of information, Heisenberg uncertainty principle, wave-particle duality, bias variance trade-off (in machine learning) (This is the trade-off you have to make when trying to figure out how best to analyze a data set. In data science and machine learning, your goal is to draw general conclusions from mass amounts of raw data. There's a sweet spot to hit here -- if you generalize too much you end up ignoring the data, but "minisculize" too much and you have no helpful general conclusions. There is always a trade-off involved here. It's unavoidable.

Here we entertain the rather discouraging possibility that "unknowableness" is part-and-parcel with the world. Not that this is something I didn't already suspect, since it seems to me that the Ultimate Question will never be answered (by a mere human, that is. Of course God knows everything.)

Where's the other focus of earth's orbit, (or any other celestial orbit for that matter)?

So I did a very quick Google search, and apparently there's nothing, which means my question stands. Is anyone else scratching their heads over this and saying this is unacceptable? Might the answer have something to do with yin and yang? (Rising, then falling, and cycles in general.)
