What is the present level of Physics?
What is the present level of Physics? I do not have much idea. I believe that it must be in an area where the boundaries between reality and imagination could be very vague.
During my schooldays, I was taught about the absoluteness of everything, time, space, movement etc. But then, due to an innate feeling that something was being withheld, I went on to learn of relativity. Classical physics became a relative concept then. That is classical physics becomes correct in the context of minor measurements, like small distances, time, and mass. It was an approximation of relativity, which dealt with massive measurements.
The Sun moved from the centre, to a relative position, among a multitude of stars, all in the galaxy called Milky Way.
I went for Physics in college because I was fascinated by concepts in relativity, astronomy, time, space and mass. It was a letdown. Teaching was on primitive and mundane subjects, and themes, which aimed more at examination marks.
What caught my imagination were so many strange themes. Like that of the constant-ness of the velocity of light, irrespective of the frame of reference. That mass increases with speed. Or that, at the speed of light, mass is also infinite. To put it more candidly, each photon is a universe.
Where is the boundary of this universe? When I asked my daughter about it, she thought about it for a moment, and then said, not to ask her such a question. It causes deep disturbance in her mind.
Are there many other universes? Like there can be a number of CD’s. With each universe being a sort of entity like a CD. And a being from outside can access any point in the CD.
Now I think that there is a component of mind that should be taken into account. And there is really some level at which everything is connected. A mobile phone connects minds, Internet connects people and their thoughts; well, these are all very primitive things, when compared to the real medium through which everything is connected.
Does anyone have ideas to contribute?
