Author Topic: Here is the actual math for the Dirac equation (relativistic quantum electron)  (Read 1234 times)

Baruch, look carefully. It's not a mere "add-on"; it is a correction. The Dirac equation didn't imply many worlds any more than the Schrodinger equation did. Many worlds is a completely independent proposition from the equations used to describe particle behavior.

Why are you so against being corrected, huh?

Why do you like to split hairs?
Because "splitting hairs" is our stock in trade. Splitting hairs in our measurements is how we came up with quantum mechanics in the first place. QFT came from caring about the nitty-gritty details of the implications of relativity coupled with quantum principles. It's because what looks like splitting hairs to the ordinary person is actually splitting logs to us.

Quantum mechanics is hard enough to understand without the misconceptions. I would thank you not to be spreading them around. I would also thank you to care about the accuracy of what you would teach others.

I am sure you are a god of your own universe ... I am only a demigod in this one ;-)

Yeah, we had other people believe that they're Jesus Christ, too. Didn't turn out so well.

Nope, Jewish yes, Jesus no.  And you are neither.

I am completely fine with not being a Jesus. The only one who claimed to be a demigod was you, which is a fair description of Jesus Christ.

Thanks for adding more detail, but it didn't actually matter.  You simply like to ... add on.  I do too.  Let me know when you get your Nobel Prize or Field Medal, won't you?

I notice you didn't exactly answer her questions...

Hakurei and I have a history.  You and I have a different history.  Being photographically minded (sometimes) means that any new conversation is a continuation of an older one.  That can be confusing to the two, depending on who is forgetful.  For a person outside that context ... it can't be easy.

Direct answers are sometimes rude.  I try to self-moderate my rudeness.  Having chutzpa isn't the same as being an asshole (referring to myself).  Ellipsis is how I sometimes manifest that self-moderation.

That is more true than you realize.  But everyone is on their own path, beating their own drum, or something else ...

Photographic (sometimes) memory, eh? Well, in many ways forgiving is forgetting, so that does shed some light on our history. I always try to treat each new thread as if it were a fresh start, because life's too short to carry grudges.
