Lederman, L. & Hill, C. - Symmetry and the Beautiful Universe

33 - Science like Sysiphus, but he thinks we have ultimate success! Strong vs weak emergence
34 - "No doubt" of strong emergence from big bang!
38 - Thinks life is weak emergence from "jogs and jolts"
80 - Is space & time a continuum? If not a continuous symmetry, Noether doesn't apply!
82 - Identifies 7 degrees of freedom
98 - The laws of physics themselves are essentially defined by symmetry principles!
107 - Everything is interconnected at some level in physics. QV GBG
109 - Equates "faith" with "confidence" of scientists
146 - Horizon of the universe equivalent to beginning in time
159 - Aging due to acceleration phase only
193 - Migration of earth's magnetic pole; no theory about this!
240 - Gauge field joins wave function as an unobservable phenomenon of nature
240 - All forces governed by gauge symmetries
242 - Uses "finite probability" to mean non-zero, vice infinite
259 - Photons create the electric force
261 - Force & particle blend together to become a common unified entity
268 - Why three generations.  Why the pattern within a generation. Open questions
284 - Higgs boson not paired?

 

Pagels, Heinz R. - Perfect Symmetry

168 - Scientists accuse intuitionists of having closed minds! Pot calling kettle black!
337 - Einstein's Postulational Method
338 - Lack of experimental support does not trouble physicists!
340 - Laws of physics are OK with creation ex nihilo
341 - Clearly(!) origin of universe was violent
342 - Why 4 dimensions get 'large'
348 - Experiment & observation only valid via Physical
348 - Sense of transcendence
354 - Brain more complex than the universe? How arrogant!
355 - Provincial idea of God
360 - Deeper understanding of life? Currently, none.
361 - Segregate personal beliefs? Like belief in stupidity of metaphysics
364 - Weinberg existentialist
