In the winter of 1985 I was driving through the Mojave Desert with a friend, talking about our apparent need for new river gear. As we passed the Twenty Nine Palms Marine Base, a man unexpectedly appeared on the side of the road selling used ammo cans. My friend and I laughed wildly and quickly came to realize that the moment was "All In A Days' Karma". This blog contains the occasional ramblings of a died-in-the-wool westerner who loves seeing, understanding, and being alive upon these landscapes. I cherish the moments of bliss and irony that come to all of us as we explore the planet and its residents (and perhaps visitors) in the short time we are here.

Quantum Field Theory with Sean Carroll

If you have an extra 28 minutes, check out this TAM (This Amazing Meeting) video of Sean Carroll talking about quantum physics and the nature of morality. It is outstanding.

  1. The video is great! Sean Carroll is an avid supporter of Quantum Field Theory. The video covered many different things. If one is curious about quantum field theory. S/he should give the book, "Fields of Color: The theory that escaped Einstein" by Rodney Brooks, a try. It is a great introduction to quantum field theory in layman terms. I first read the book knowing nothing about the theory, but now I feel like I am able to explain what the theory is all about.
