Okay, maybe too short. I mean that I am nothing but a collection of atoms in interplay with four forces and mostly empty space, no magic added anywhere, but I fucking exist nevertheless in a world full of other creatures that exists around me.
For me, the more interesting corollary is that someday in the distant future, nothing will exist. So, God, what was the point?
I have neither a God to ask about a point, nor a point to ask a God about and neither do I know that what you know about the distant future.
(But I find it wonderful that you exist too.)
That opinion wouldn't go over to well with solipsism.
I survived a bike accident which SHOULD HAVE killed me when I was 8. I was struck by a car, sent a good 30 meters, and landed flat on my head. I didn't have a scratch anywhere else on my body. I "just" have damage to the frontal lobe of my brain, I lost a great portion of my short term memory and I was in a 3 month coma.
The doctors said I probably wouldn't come out of my coma. When I came to; I pulled my own tracheotomy out for christ's sake. The doctors then said I'd never walk again; I proved them wrong... that was 20 years ago.
That's pretty damn interesting, if you ask me...
That's pretty awesome.
Indeed it is.
Schrodingers Equation. Seriously though. I can't say that I know that much on how to apply it yet, but it is pretty damn amazing what can be done with that thing.
I tried to read about it and my head exploded. I'm a science fan, not a scientist. What exactly, in layman's terms, can be done with it?
One example is how the Schrodinger equation can describe the hydrogen atom. Also, results from solutions to the Schrodinger equation show that properties of a particle, such as momentum or energy, can only have specific values, which is extremely different from how our intuitions about how the world works are. This is only scratching the surface.
Quasars. They are so far away and moving so quickly that by the time the light reached us and we noticed them they may have ceased to exist for more time that we can comprehend.
