"Scientists and engineers need to challenge orthodox thinking, he said, giving examples of little known critics of physicists such as Newton and Werner Heisenberg." ~ Rick Merritt What critics were there of Newton and Heisenberg? I'm pretty sure you are NOT saying Newton and Heisenberg were critics of physicists. Miles Mathis corrects, he says, some of the maths used by the "masters" of physics.

Thanks, I look forward to checking them out.

yes. That was an early work. He also authored Analog VLSI and Neural Systems, and a very interesting book Collective Electrodynamics. And undoubtedly much else.

I don't think any new physics would be valid without experiments. Intuition, math, theory not enough. I hope that was not missed on the audience.

"Mead co-authored a seminal text on VLSI design." Which text?

Physics cannot predict what I will do next (besides hitting "Submit Comment" in a few seconds). As the saying goes, a group of physicists goes to scale a mountain and upon finally reaching the summit they are greeted by a band of theologians who have been camped there for some time. The news this week was that there might soon be a news-related story on dark matter! I'm looking forward to it.

It's a matter of resolution,at least it looks like it. :)

I think that those on the bleeding edge largely disregard where academia says we are and they use thier own research to build better tools than the competitors. the sharing of the most important science is over,save making it look like everybody is still playing along. QM aint so useful in some phys sims so change the code to what does work,just dont publish it for everybody to see,they might catch up to us.

I didn’t hear Carver Mead’s presentation, but I can feel his words in my mind as they are quoted here. There is a ring of truth in what he said, although perhaps not eloquently expressed. As we get older, especially those of us exposed to higher education, we begin to realize just how little we really know about the Universe. Sure, we’ve managed to nail down the edges of a few general principles enough to accomplish useful things, but no one sees the Big Picture yet. We may never see it. Einstein complained that God doesn’t play dice. My apologizes, Albert, but that is exactly the way God appears to work. Dice is God’s game and the dice are loaded. When God manipulates probabilities (only God would know how that can happen) to achieve a desired outcome, we are but observers instantiating each event and perhaps calling them miracles. The rest of the time it’s Good Orderly Direction as the Universe rolls along on autopilot. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along. Ignore that man behind the curtain.
