Today’s the last day of my Space Odyssey : I get to grips with String Theory and I reflect on my own learning process. A new line of questioning emerges for me too. It’s a different type of enquiry ~ it’s a question that exists at a new level and reflects a new order of thinking . I think I only this new question as a result of going through the process of learning about theoretical physics.
Grappling with questions about cosmology and theoretical physics has had the impact of pushing my mind through a metaphorical wormhole. I now find myself in a new universe where new laws of thinking might apply. I wonder what I’m going to discover in this new place? Whatever I discover, I’m certain it’s going to be thanks to “Wormhole Thinking” 🙂 .
Today I’m exploring “the multiverse” ~ a theory which proposes that our universe is not the only universe! Watch me as I try to get my head around three theoretical models : Bubble Universe theory ; Membrane theory and Many Worlds theory!
Four lines of enquiry opened up yesterday as a result of grappling with the idea of wormholes. One of those lines was : what is the theory of general relativity? Today I attempt to understand, and describe, this theory which Einstein published in 1915. (I’d just like to say that my head is beginning to hurt!) 🙂
Today I’m exploring the line of enquiry that opened up for me yesterday : wormholes . Watch me as I use a part of my vacuum cleaner to explain how this hypothetical feature of space- time might work and as I begin to see a learning pattern emerge!
Alright. Hands up. It’s true : I’ve moved from “not interested in space at at all” to “totally fascinated by the entire cosmos and beyond” within 24 hours (and I’m certainly starting to see how my learning strategy really works for me!) Yesterday’s adventure opened up 3 interesting lines of enquiry for me :
What is a black hole?
What is the event horizon?
What is the singularity?
Watch as I explore the anatomy of a black hole and open up another new line of enquiry 🙂 !
Today’s adventure sees me starting a new adventure series. The aim of this series is to discover more about the way I learn. I selected a magazine that seemed to hold very little appeal and wondered if I could get curious about any of its contents. Would a natural curiosity emerge? Would a line of enquiry reveal itself like a trail of breadcrumbs for me to follow?
Watch what happens when I open the pages of “All About Space” 🙂 .
I’ve been away with work over the last couple of days, so here is a consolidated post which includes the adventures from the 24th – 26th February 2014.
In Adventure 55 ~ Dream Diary Day 6 , I learn that sometimes you have to go to sleep in order to learn how to wake up and be fully present!
In Adventure 56 ~ Dream Diary Day 7 , I get to see how I process day-time events :
In Adventure 57 ~ The Most Expensive Perfume , I pluck up the courage to ask the assistant in Duty Free (I normally avoid the assistants like the plague and really don’t enjoy being “sold to”) whether I can try the most expensive perfume in the shop. Here’s what happened (and, for the record, it was a little too musky for me and I didn’t think it was worth the price!)
Today you can see how seriously my dream-makers take my work! I’ll be off the radar until Thursday and I’ll update you with all my adventures then 🙂 . Looks like I’m headed for a period of growth and transformation!
