The film How Long is a Piece of String, was in interesting watch. Because one i knew little to no information about physics let alone quantum mechanics, but somehow throughout the film as they explained what it was by trying to solve the problem of the string it all seemed to make intuitive sense, from how observer ruin everything to how efficient plants are to touching limits.
One of the observations that i made through the film, because i was trying to understand how this would relate back to computer is that we as programmers have to improvise and give out our best possible solutions, and sometimes it could be completely wrong. But its a solutions and frankly sometimes that’s all we care about.
Observers ruin and create everything, this is true relating back to the film the secret you, if there was no observer watching things happen everything and nothing is happening all at the same time that potential for anything or nothing to happen is there. That i think lies everywhere once you start noticing it, but wait as soon as it you observer it becomes something, so it might be best to let it be.
How to be efficient, i was shocked at how efficient plants are in transferring energy to actually create a plant. I knew that plants had a special unique power, since i am a vegetarian and my diet consist of alot of fruits and vegetables. But 90% that is just shocking no wonder why i feel so great when i have veggie drink.
Touching the limits, i was introduced to limits back at calc 1 and i go the concept of what was happening in math terms somewhat. But this string problem really brought the problem to life, is you just get so close and keep on zooming and in my calc one we just call it the limit or where it diverges into the limit and leave it at that, but no in this film it keeps on going keeps on counting till you get to a black hole!
I always had a passion for the field of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and I knew I wanted to do something to make a difference in the world. I just didn’t know where to start. I was an immigrant in a new country, grew up in a tough environment, and wasn’t sure how… Read More
