What are the practical and aplicable concepts of quantum physics ?

By aayush_18 ·
Quantum physics simply explains the quantization of any thing, i.e,that thing can't
exist independently due to its instability. It
occurs in packets or bundles. for example mass
is quantized because of short range force
between two quarks. nucleons and electrons
can't be broken due to this strong force.
Similarly the charge is quantized.

I ignore in these threads the solemn, "It is what it is."

I'll tell them Larrie has a handle on reality.

can we put a stop to recursive acronyms, especially those that define themselves by what they're not? 'GNU' / 'GNU's Not Unix' leaps to mind. GNU also isn't an Umbrella or Underwear, but what IS it?

GNU?

It's a antelope! It's also called a Wildebeest!

Thought I'd get in with that lame joke before anyone else.

GNU-Linux is a Unix Like operating system.
Compatable with Unix, but no attempt made to meet theSingle Unix Specification.

What do the letters 'GNU' as an abbreviation stand for? If they stand for 'GNU's Not Unix', it's self-recursive (the letter 'G' is short for 'GNU'), and it defines itself by what it's NOT, not what it is. Hence, it's grammatical sh!t.

yup, and

Linux has two definitions:
Linux is no unix
Linus' Unix

My original answer defines what the operating system is, without using GNU in the definition.

I kind of liked that one.

Yeah.

My brother turned me on to that one. I boggle and balk at physics, so took awhile to get around to reading it. It's on the list to reread. I love/hate those kind of books!

The guy is a genius, and can write as well. This book is more accessible to most, and was fairly popular.

Feynman can be a real hoot sometimes as well.
