Physics and Buddha Dhamma

"Jumping from failure to failure with undiminished enthusiasm is the big secret to success."
~Savas Dimopoulos

this just grabbed me while watching "Particle Fever" on netflix, a little diversion post midterms. Truly intersects with the Dhamma at this point, how fortunate we are to have such diverse experiences magnified and shared in media today.

and another quote from him:

"It's astonishing that there are any laws of nature at all, that they are describable by mathematics, that mathematics is a tool that humans can understand, that the laws of nature can be written on a page, it's the greatest of all mysteries.

How wondrous that that "sweet spot" found in meditation, the utter and impossibly perfect balance point felt at the arrival of bliss could be the pivot between super symmetry and multiverse theories, that dynamic tension that creates life can be detected within and without, with sensory experience and with logical mathematics. I knew math could be fun, I just never made it that far. Maybe someday educators will skip the blah blah and go right to the AHAA!
