Eventually, when Strife is totally dominant, the elements are so thoroughly separated into their respective places, each constituting a mass totally on its own, with no presence in it of any portion of any of the other elements, that the cosmos and all its movements are destroyed. These interpretations then hold that there is another cosmogony in the reverse progress from complete separation to complete unity, under the influence of Love.

Certainly, the symmetry of the fundamental principle might suggest a second cosmogony. However, we do not find in the remains of Empedocles' poem a description of another cosmogony, one taking place under the influence of Love.

Of course, that we do not find one does not mean that it did not exist, given the fragmentary nature of the text. But he says Empedocles shied away from holding to such a cosmogony because it is not reasonable to posit a cosmos coming to be from elements already separated—as though cosmogony can only happen through the separation of elements out of a previously blended condition of them all On the Heavens , III 2, a Such issues lend weight to a second strain of interpretation see Long , Bollack — Such interpretations still read the fundamental principle of B 17 as referring to alternating periods of domination by Love and Strife.

However, they hold that there is only one cosmogony and zoogony. In the vortex, Strife dominates in order to separate the elements into their respective places to form a cosmos. As described above, this would be a condition in which some portions of each of the other elements are found intermingled within the separate masses of earth, water, air and fire.

This is the extreme point in the domination of Strife; but it is not, as on the traditional interpretation, a total, acosmic separation of elements. Once the cosmos is formed consisting of a world-order with continental land-masses, oceans, rivers, winds, sun, moon, seasons, planets, stars, etc. From the mixture of elements in due proportions, there arise various forms of animal life. Ultimately, both animals and cosmos perish as Love totally reunifies the elements.

Thus, finally, the Sphere is restored. On this interpretation there is a single cosmogony and zoogony, not two as on the traditional interpretations. The idea of a single cosmogony and zoogony is attractive, in part, because it echoes other Presocratic philosophers. So far we have concentrated on Empedocles' account of the coming to be of the cosmos. But in his zoogony, Empedocles also wrote about animals and how they came to be.

It is clear that he associated zoogony with the influence of both Love and Strife. We can distinguish two sets of fragments that tell of the way that living beings come to be. The first set tells about fantastic events and creatures; the second about natural-sounding events and creatures. Let us start with the fantastic.


Empedocles says that there was a time when separate limbs wandered around on their own:. The wandering and straying suggest aimless and disorderly movements and so, some influence of Strife. Then, however, these separate limbs combined in random ways to make fantastic creatures:. In these fragments there is a change from separateness to combination.

Combination is, of course, the work of Love.

Brad Scott - The God Particle - Part 1

While these creatures are fantastic, Aristotle does say some of the combinations were fitted to survive Aristotle, Phys. II 8, b In the second set of fragments we find an explanation of the way that present day creatures come to be. This phase produces the earliest human forms, although they have yet to show clearly human features. Ultimately, from these there developed men and women as we know them today B 63— At this point, sexual reproduction becomes the focus of Empedocles' account. Still, this phase begins with separation of elements, as the first lines of the fragment show, and so it involves some influence of Strife.

In the traditional interpretations, there are two zoogonies, one under the increasingly dominant influence of Love and the other under the dominant influence of Strife. By contrast, in the second strain of interpretation, there is only one zoogony, which takes place under the increasing influence of Love, although Strife is still present.

Thus, there are not two zoogonies happening in distinct cosmic cycles; rather there are fluctuations of Love and Strife within the progress from total domination by Strife to that by Love. However, some commentators argue that new material in the Strasbourg papyrus lends weight to the traditional interpretation. In turn, distinct zoogonies imply distinct cosmogonies. However, the double zoogony implies that animals or their parts will come to be through a process of separation. Since zoogony under Love is shown to be a kind of assembly of parts that leads to viable creatures, by parity of reasoning, zoogony under Strife should be a sundering of wholes that leads to viable creatures or to the sort of parts that are condemned to further disintegration.

The task, then, for the traditionalists is to find passages in the manuscript that clearly show a sundering that produces viable creatures or parts thereof. In turn, the sundering must clearly belong to a stage in which Strife is not just dominant—after all, their opponents recognize a fluctuation in the influence of Love and Strife—but is achieving complete separation.

At this point in the continuing scholarly debate perhaps it is not too bold to say that the new material presents some—not uncontested—evidence for a double zoogony. The question of the sequence of these stages is, perhaps, not as important as the fact that, on any view, Empedocles is proposing a way of explaining living beings by competing principles of Love and Strife.

Mar 02, Is this image a representation of a single photon? Report Block. I don't understand this image either. This seems to be an image created by many electrons, which have experienced an interaction where there is a high probability of finding a photon along the nanowire. Since a surface plasmon polariton is a collective oscillation of electrons, it will have a much stronger interaction with the imaging beam of electrons than an actual photon would So, the interesting question are: did they simultaneously observe particle-like and wave-like properties of surface plasmon polaritons?

And if they did, is the interpretation equivalent to observing wave-particle duality with a single fundamental particle e. While I tend to think the first question is probably 'yes', while the answer to the second question is almost certainly 'no'; I will need to read the paper more thoroughly before deciding. In any case, it is certainly a beautiful experiment. Double Slit the Quantum Phantom. That's great! Now, let's move on to 'quantum entanglement'.

What happens to the 'magnetic' part of an EM wave when interacting with matter - in this case electrons? Is the electric and magnetic part of a wave decoupled and if so, how? In the ontological relation of electromagnetic radiation is not a particle and not a wave, and field education. For the simple reason that you may receive as a result of separation of the turbulent boundary layer from the field of the vortex at the local perturbation. In physics should be the principle: similar interacts with similar meaning: field interacts with the field.

All matter is solidified light. While it's nice to be able to observe more and more with technological advancements, this is still an indirect image of the effect of the principle of Wave-Particle Duality behavior of photons, electrons or particles in general, but it is not a direct observation of the phenomenon.

Kinda looks like a waves of particles in the waves of particles theory of light. Yes, itsa pic of many electrons behavior showing the "fingerprint" of light itself. Let there be. This comment has been removed by a moderator. Are you sure the wave has not trapped particles as it moves and is carrying the particles with it as it progresses?

Wave just carrying particles but not composed of those particles. Standing waves don't "radiate". Are you sure? What if the standing waves are "made out of" electrons like for example the surface plasmon polaritons actually probed in this study? I'm pretty sure standing waves DO radiate.

Ham radio It will oscillate, but not propigate. It's not so difficult to understand - the vacuum looks porous from our perspective like the foam or sponge. And when it undulates, it gets thicker at the same place. So that every vibrating place of vacuum also behaves like the less or more dense blob, i. The same effect we would recognize, if we would live at the water surface like the waterstriders and if we would observe it with its own ripples.

The more undulating places of surface are also more deformed, so that they represent a more dense obstacle for another waves. It's geometric effect, which has its origin in tiny density fluctuations of vacuum, i. The more the space-time undulates, the more these tiny fluctuations are getting exposed, the more the vacuum look more dense at the same places. These density fluctuations are also indicia of additional dimensions of space-time in similar way, like the Brownian noise at the water surface is the evidence of additional dimension of the underwater. The foamy character of vacuum also manifest itself in much more apparent way with well known geometry of light waves itself, which is described with Maxwell's theory.

The foam analogy of vacuum just enables to visualize it with ease. If we squeeze the piece of foam between fingers, then the portion of foam will expand in perpendicular direction, being squashed in this way.

The electromagnetic wave behaves in the same way, as it has two vector components, which are mutually dependent: if we induce the change of electrostatic field intensity, we also induce the change of magnetic field intensity in perpendicular direction. And whole the piece of that foam also becomes more dense like the soap foam shaken - so it does behave like the obstacle or sparse "particle" at the same moment for all waves passing the same place at the same moment.

This effect is apparently cumulative - the higher is the energy density, the higher is the mass density. But it also enables to understand the hidden logics of quantum mechanics. The Schrodinger equations of quantum mechanics describes the undulations of elastic environment, the mass density of which at each piece of time and space gets proportional to its energy density and the proportionality constant is just the speed of light squared. It's a differential equation of the elastic vibrating foam, which gets thick reversibly by its own vibrations like the soap foam shaken inside of closed evacuated space I mean like the foam with bubbles filled with empty space, not with air.

The more intensively such a foam is being shaken, the more dense and thick it also gets. So that every isolated wave propagates through it like the less or more dense blob of that foam - i. The real particles of matter differ only with energy density of vacuum foam inside of them. Before some time I found a nifty applet at the web page of prof. Perlin, a well known author of CGI "plasma effect" between many others. This Java applet visualizes quite faithfully the particle-wave aspect of vacuum foam, if we scratch the surface of applet with using of mouse.

The cells of foam are getting smaller and more compact with process, which resembles the concept of "dynamic causal triangulation" of the quantum gravity theories, which also consider the vacuum as a string net liquid or spin foam.
