A solar eclipse is a clear demonstration of celestial mechanics as the position of the moon and the sun temporarily shadows the sunlight on earth, and indeed for centuries has led to a number of mythologies that attempt to explain the geometry of the unknown universe and where civilisations and formidable historical figures came to…

Albert Einstein has become synonymous with term ‘genius’ and having set the foundations that strengthened the study of physics with his Theory of Special Relativity [SR] early in the twentieth century – that determined the speed of light is observed the same in any frame of reference and that the laws of physics is invariant…

Fractured Time and Quantum Mysteries

Whether we would like to admit it or not, I am confident that each of us has had a time-related encounter, perhaps minor in nature, where we experienced a future instant or event likely through a dream that publishes a moment in time coincidentally before it takes place. It almost feels holographic where an idea…

The Cycle of our Nature

Everything in the universe has a life cycle, where nature destroys and renews itself cyclically. For instance, stars are made from a fusion between two hot and light gases – hydrogen and helium – whereby in the core the former burns into helium and gradually begins to form heavier elements such as carbon.[2] Eventually, our…
