I have set myself the challenge of weaving 'omphalos' into my everyday discourse, although it is a little close to 'phallus' for the uninitiated.

I remember that thread :) didn't it involve Abney Park cemetery?

PR, I make periodic visits to your district - usually embracing Foulden Road, Northwold Road, the bagel shop on Stoke Newington High Road and, on the relevant days, Belfast Road. I even glanced by Amhurst Road on Sunday. Of you, I have seen nothing at any of these locations. Am I missing the clues as to your whereabouts ?

CONSCIOUS OBSERVER IN THE AREA

The psychogeography of the Stoke Newington omphalos is confusing:

You have an electron, spinning around the outer shell of an atom. You want to find out where that electron is, and how fast it’s moving. To do so, you have to whack something into it, like another subatomic particle, because it’s too small to be seen with light. This is something like whacking Earth into Mars to find out the position and speed of Mars. So of course the electron is changed by this rather crude observation of it, which means that one of the two things you wanted to know is changed by your observation, so you really only know one. This the most mundane example of The Observer’s involvement with the observed.

But, according to some theories, The Observer is still more deeply involved in this quantum event, the determination of the location of a particle. Before the electron gets whacked with the other particle, it is said to be in a state of “superposition,” existing partially in all possible locations. It is at the moment of observation by a conscious mind that the electron “chooses” one of the possible locations to materialize in, collapsing it’s wave-packet and becoming a particle for the split second it takes to be hit by the other particle.

Always a better class of debate when you are involved, JE. However, having scored 16% (part 1) and 17% (part 2) in my physics mock o' level - my papers came back with the comment 'This is ridiculous' written on them - I have played no further part in the sciences. As a result of this set-back, I put more academic eggs into the geopgraphy basket, and I can read a map most adequately if this is of any use.

I challenge you to prove, BTW, that 'omphalos' is not a totally bogus word.

I will gladly accept your challenge and compliments, Mr Easy :-)

http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=omphalos
om·pha·los

n. pl. om·pha·li (-l)
1) The navel.
2) A central part; a focal point.

though of course all words are "made up" at some point.

Speaking as a non-physicist, I think that all physicists should have a keen sense of the ridiculous, so I am not quite sure what your teacher was on about.

Map reading is a must, but obviously "the map is not the territory" when dealing with The Observer.

As we all learned in kindergarten, you can't both know the position and momentum of a particle.

Kindergarten is very much a continental phenomenon, Arvid. We had to make do with play group (bit of a middle class concept) and then primary school - particles of whatever persuasion bit not much feature on the curriculum of either.

You had to be in London or Kingston in the late 60's / early 70's to find these!!!

Toby. On the contrary, I have seen you stalking these places you mention on a regular basis. Whenever, I see you coming I make sure I'm off in the opposite direction, but fast. Funnily enough, last time I was in Kent I saw nothing of you either.

The observer lives in his panopticon. He watches you all the time. But you can never see him !

Don't you start with your extensive Footlights College, Oxbridge vocabulary young James. Found anything interesting in the Bodleian recently ?

Interaction in the heavy liquid bubble chamber
Author: zoki (213.137.110.---)

If we take that M S Easy was an incident antiproton which enters the chamber of Mr Penny Reel seeking for information, then MS Easy annihilates a resident proton givin rise to a +ve and -ve pion, and two gamma rays each of which converts into an electron positron pair, which implies that the mass of a particle must not be conceived as some stable material but as a concentrated pattern of energy, locked up in what appears to us as matter.
In the bubble chambers "elementary" particles colide and annihilate each other or create new particles which give rise to a new chain of events.
The particles in question are of course infinitesimally small and many have a lifetime much shorter than a millionth of a second; yet they leave tracks in the bubble chamber comparable to the visible trails which invisible jetplanes leave in the sky.
The fundamental lesson which the bubble chamber and other sophisticated instruments teach the baffers is that on the subatomic level our concepts of space, time, matter and convential logic no longer apply.
That means, according to the quantum theory, that Mr Penny Reel, even if he wanted to, culdn't answer on MS Easy question.

I agree Zoki, and can only wonder why no-one else mentioned this before.

Don't know why but Im pretty sure that MSE still used 'phallus' more often than 'omphalos'.

This is what I loved about the old board: reggae leavened with particle physics, lexical excursions and the micro-topography of north east London.
