41. The Relativity Of Space, Henri Poincare
Full text of Poincare's 1897 popular explanation of his conception of space.
The Relativity of Space Source The Relativity of Space from (1897). The complete article reproduced here.
IT is impossible to picture empty space. All our efforts to imagine pure space from which the changing images of material objects are excluded can only result in a representation in which highly-coloured surfaces, for instance, are replaced by lines of slight colouration, and if we continued in this direction to the end, everything would disappear and end in nothing. Hence arises the irreducible relativity of space. Whoever speaks of absolute space uses a word devoid of meaning. This is a truth that has been long proclaimed by all who have reflected on the question, but one which we are too often inclined to forget. If I am at a definite point in Paris, at the Place du Panthéon, for instance, and I say, "I will come back here tomorrow;" if I am asked, "Do you mean that you will come back to the same point in space?" I should be tempted to answer yes. Yet I should be wrong, since between now and tomorrow the earth will have moved, carrying with it the Place du Panthéon, which will have travelled more than a million miles. And if I wished to speak more accurately, I should gain nothing, since this million of miles has been covered by our globe in its motion in relation to the sun, and the sun in its turn moves in relation to the Milky Way, and the Milky Way itself is no doubt in motion without our being able to recognise its velocity. So that we are, and shall always be, completely ignorant how far the Place du Panthéon moves in a day. In fact, what I meant to say was

    So, have a seat. Put your feet up. This may take some time. Can I get you some tea? Earl Grey? You got it. Okay. How do I want to do this? He did so much. It's hard to just dive in. You know? You pick a spot to go from, but soon you have to back up and and go over this or that item, and you get done with that only to see that you have to back up some more. So if you feel like I'm off to the side of the tale half the time, well, this is why. Just bear with me, and we'll get to the end in good time. Okay? Okay. Let's see....

    Say you woke up one day and your bed was gone. Your room, too. Gone. It's all gone. You wake up in an inky void. Not even a star. Okay, yes, it's a dumb idea, but just go with it. Now say you want to know if you move or not. Are you held fast in one spot? Or do you, say, list off to the left some? What I want to ask you is: Can you find out? Hell no. You can see that, sure. You don't need me to tell you. To move, you have to move to or away from ... well, from what? You'd have to say that you don't even get to use a word like "move" when you are the only body in that void. Sure. Okay.

    48. 4C - The Relativity Of Ones Perception
    Essay by Lourens Hupkes.
    The relativity of ones perception
    In Judaism it is told that to hear is standing in opposite of the other senses and that hearing is the quintessence. One explains further that the hearing is not only the hearing of the spoken word, but hearing in all ways. That is why one says: Salomo understands the language of the animals as well as the language of the plants. This does not mean that he understands the crowing of the cock, but he is able to hear something that maybe not at all in this way is expressed. The profets for instance do hear a voice also. And here one says about: this does not necessarily go together with sound in the way of our speech. They can hear that voice without any sound! If that very voice is heard, then it is hocus-pocus and that should be ignored. That voice is heard in another way.
    The Jiddish language expresses this in a special way. Jiddish is a kind of dialect from middle-age German which was spoken by the Jews who were expelled from Germany or fleeing at the time of the 'Black Death'(1300). They were admitted 'en masse' in then at that time Kingdom Poland and they took the middle-age German with them and this language has itself maintained there in the Jewish society. It has assimilated in the course of time some Slav and Hebrew words.
    In that Jiddish there is a difference between 'herren' of the German 'hoeren' that is hearing of a sound, and 'der herren' that signifies hearing in an other way. This word is used when for instance someone is telling that he has made the voyage through the 'Hechalos', that is the palaces (in modern terms one could say a voyage in meditation). One has left this world here and one has entered the palaces of the other realm.

Conclusion Shop or Compare Prices If you are a fan of science fiction, then you know that "relativity" is a fairly common part of the genre.

If you are a fan of science you know that relativity plays a big part there as well, especially when talking about things like black holes and astrophysics.

    51. Theory: Special Relativity
    Theory Special relativity. Newton s laws of motion give Theoretical Basis for Special relativity. Einstein s theory of special relativity

    Special Relativity
    Newton's laws of motion give us a complete description of the behavior moving objects at low speeds. The laws are different at speeds reached by the particles at SLAC. Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity describes the motion of particles moving at close to the speed of light. In fact, it gives the correct laws of motion for any particle. This doesn't mean Newton was wrong, his equations are contained within the relativistic equations. Newton's "laws" provide a very good approximate form, valid when v is much less than c . For particles moving at slow speeds (very much less than the speed of light), the differences between Einstein's laws of motion and those derived by Newton are tiny. That's why relativity doesn't play a large role in everyday life. Einstein's theory supercedes Newton's, but Newton's theory provides a very good approximation for objects moving at everyday speeds. Einstein's theory is now very well established as the correct description of motion of relativistic objects, that is those traveling at a significant fraction of the speed of light. Because most of us have little experience with objects moving at speeds near the speed of light, Einstein's predictions may seem strange. However, many years of high energy physics experiments have thoroughly tested Einstein's theory and shown that it fits all results to date.

    Clinton is not an adulterer
    by Larry Judkins
    Religion Page Editor
    Sacramento Valley Mirror
    I know, I know! After reading that headline, you think I'm a rabid Democrat who's in denial about President Clinton's extramarital affairs. Actually, long before Mr. Clinton's own admissions, I accepted as true the allegations of both Monica Lewinsky and Gennifer Flowers. I have also never doubted Paula Jones or Kathleen Willey. So how, then, can I maintain that President Clinton is not an adulterer? Simple. From a biblical perspective or at least an Old Testament perspective he has not committed adultery. Remember that in Old Testament times, polygamy and concubinage were perfectly acceptable institutions, and no "sin" or immorality was associated with them. Generally speaking, men could have as many women as they could acquire. A man was considered an adulterer only if he had sexual relations with another man's wife. If a married man had sex with an unmarried woman, he was not guilty of adultery. Thus, King David was an adulterer only because of his relationship with Bathsheba, the wife of Uriah the Hittite. His many other legally acquired wives and concubines did not make him guilty of adultery.

    Sean M. Carroll
    (gravitational waves disturbing a black hole, from NCSA This set of lecture notes on general relativity has been expanded into a textbook, Spacetime and Geometry: An Introduction to General Relativity , available for purchase online or at finer bookstores everywhere. About 50% of the book is completely new; I've also polished and improved many of the explanations, and made the organization more flexible and user-friendly. The notes as they are will always be here for free.
    These lecture notes are a lightly edited version of the ones I handed out while teaching Physics 8.962, the graduate course in General Relativity at MIT , during Spring 1996. Each of the chapters is available here as uncompressed postscript, but see next paragraph. (Need a postscript previewer ?) Constructive comments and general flattery may be sent to me via the address below. Dates refer to the last nontrivial modification of the corresponding file (fixing typos doesn't count).
