Perceptual Relativity quotes by Rochelle Forrester
#1. Some animals can see only in black and white, so everything is a shade of grey, others can see in various colors. If you cease to look at something and it continues to exist, what color does it have? The color one species sees it in, or the color another species sees it in? Clearly it can't be grey and have another color at the same time. The same applies to other sense perceptions, a vibration in the air sounds different to different species, the same odour can smell different to different species. Remove the observer, what sound or smell continues to exist. The way one observer hears the sound or the way the other observer hears it? Does an odour continue to exist the way one observer smells it or the way another smells it? Something cannot be of different colors, smells or sounds at the same time. Clearly the sense perceptions a particular observer has disappear when the observer ceases to be making an observation. #Quote by Rochelle Forrester
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Stephen Hawking
#2. This "Hawking temperature" of a black hole and its "Hawking radiation" (as they came to be called) were truly radical - perhaps the most radical theoretical physics discovery in the second half of the twentieth century. They opened our eyes to profound connections between general relativity (black holes), thermodynamics (the physics of heat) and quantum physics (the creation of particles where before there were none). For example, they led Stephen to prove that a black hole has entropy, which means that somewhere inside or around the black hole there is enormous randomness. He deduced that the amount of entropy (the logarithm of the hole's amount of randomness) is proportional to the hole's surface area. His formula for the entropy is engraved on Stephen's memorial stone at Gonville and Caius College in Cambridge, where he worked.
For the past forty-five years, Stephen and hundreds of other physicists have struggled to understand the precise nature of a black hole's randomness. It is a question that keeps on generating new insights about the marriage of quantum theory with general relativity - that is, about the ill-understood laws of quantum gravity. #Quote by Stephen Hawking
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Robert Sokolowski
#3. There is a marvelous ambiguity to the ego: on the one hand it is an ordinary part of the world, one of many things that inhabit it. It occupies space, endures through time, has physical and psychic features, and interacts causally with other things in the world: if it falls, it falls like any other body; if it is pushed, it topples over like any other thing; if treated with chemicals, it reacts like any living organism; if light rays hit its visual organs, it reacts electronically, chemically, and psychologically. 'I' am a material, organic, and psychological thing. If we were to take the self simply as one of the things in the world, we would be treating it as what can be called the empirical ego.

On the other hand, this very same self can also be played off against the world: it is the center of disclosure to whom the world and everything in it manifest themselves. It is the agent of truth, the one responsible for judgments and verifications, the perceptual and cognitive 'owner' of the world. When considered in this manner, it is no longer simply a part of the world; it is what is called the transcendental ego.

The empirical and transcendental egos are not two entities; they are one and the same being, but considered in two ways. #Quote by Robert Sokolowski
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Albert Camus
#4. Every reflection today, whether nihilist or positivist, gives birth, sometimes without knowing it, to
standards that science itself confirms. The quantum theory, relativity, the uncertainty of interrelationships,
define a world that has no definable reality except on the scale of average
greatness, which is our own. The ideologies which guide our world were born in the time of absolute
scientific discoveries. Our real knowledge, on the other hand, only justifies a system of thought based on
relative discoveries. "Intelligence," says Lazare Bickel, "is our faculty for not developing what we think
to the very end, so that we can still believe in reality." Approximative thought is the only creator of
reality. #Quote by Albert Camus
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Richard Wiseman
#5. Albert Einstein once said, Sit with a beautiful woman for an hour and it seems like a minute, sit on a hot stove for a minute and it seems like an hour - that's relativity. #Quote by Richard Wiseman
Perceptual Relativity quotes by R. Buckminster Fuller
#6. Relativity is inherently convergent, though convergent toward a plurality of centers of abstract truths. #Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Chen-Ning Yang
#7. Einstein's theory of General Relativity has a mathematical structure very similar to Yang-Mills theory. #Quote by Chen-Ning Yang
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Paul Dirac
#8. No. I had successfully solved the difficulty of finding a description of the electron which was consistent with both relativity and quantum mechanics. Of course, when you solve one difficulty, other new difficulties arise. You then try to sove them. You can never solve all difficulties at once. #Quote by Paul Dirac
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#9. The theory of relativity and quantum mechanics argue that you can twist time and space, that something can appear out of nothing, and that a cat can be both alive and dead at the same time. This makes a mockery of our common sense, yet nobody seeks to protect innocent schoolchildren from these scandalous ideas. Why? The theory of relativity makes nobody angry, because it doesn't contradict any of our cherished beliefs. Most people don't care an iota whether space and time are absolute or relative. If you think it is possible to bend space and time, well, be my guest. Go ahead and bend them. What do I care? In contrast, Darwin has deprived us of our souls #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Perceptual Relativity quotes by William Pfaff
#10. It is one of the perceptual defects of Western government and press to assign Western-style motives to what people do in non-Western societies, as if these are universally relevant. #Quote by William Pfaff
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Julius Evola
#11. The fundamental principle underlying all justifications of war, from the point of view of human personality, is 'heroism'. War, it is said, offers man the opportunity to awaken the hero who sleeps within him. War breaks the routine of comfortable life; by means of its severe ordeals, it offers a transfiguring knowledge of life, life according to death. The moment the individual succeeds in living as a hero, even if it is the final moment of his earthly life, weighs infinitely more on the scale of values than a protracted existence spent consuming monotonously among the trivialities of cities. From a spiritual point of view, these possibilities make up for the negative and destructive tendencies of war, which are one-sidedly and tendentiously highlighted by pacifist materialism. War makes one realise the relativity of human life and therefore also the law of a 'more-than-life', and thus war has always an anti-materialist value, a spiritual value. #Quote by Julius Evola
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Albert Einstein
#12. Thanks to my fortunate idea of introducing the relativity principle into physics, you (and others) now enormously overrate my scientific abilities, to the point where this makes me quite uncomfortable. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Perceptual Relativity quotes by John Fowles
#13. Our stereotyping societies force us to feel more alone. They stamp masks on us and isolate out real selves. We all live in two worlds: the old comfortable man-centred world of absolutes and the harsh real world of relatives. The latter, the relativity reality, terrifies us; and isolates and dwarfs us all. #Quote by John Fowles
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Sri Aurobindo
#14. The consciousness of the seer, is a greater power for knowledge than the consciousness of the thinker. The perceptual power of the inner sight is greater and more direct than the perceptual power of thought: ... #Quote by Sri Aurobindo
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Jean-Jacques Nattiez
#15. If we compel the composer to write in terms of what the listener is able to hear, we flirt with the danger of freezing the evolution of musical language, whose progressive development comes about through transgressions of a given era's perceptual habits. #Quote by Jean-Jacques Nattiez
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Italo Calvino
#16. The only contact we could have with the void was through this little the void had produced as quintessence of its own emptiness; the only image we had of the void was our own poor universe. All the void we would ever know was there, in the relativity of what is, for even the void had been no more than a relative void,a void secretly shot with veins and temptations to be something, given that in a moment of crisis at its own nothingness it had been able to give rise to the universe. #Quote by Italo Calvino
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Leander Kahney
#17. The iPhone When we are at these early stages in design . . . often we'll talk about the story for the product - we're talking about perception. We're talking about how you feel about the product, not in a physical sense, but in a perceptual sense. - JONY IVE #Quote by Leander Kahney
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Alan Guth
#18. In the context of general relativity, space almost is a substance. It can bend and twist and stretch, and probably the best way to think about space is to just kind of imagine a big piece of rubber that you can pull and twist and bend. #Quote by Alan Guth
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Daniel Bell
#19. Art is the reordering of nature - the qualities of space and time - in new perceptual and material form. #Quote by Daniel Bell
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Edmund Husserl
#20. The physical image presentation aims at the subject. The presentation of the image itself as the presentation of the appearing image-representant is an entirely different experience. Here, too, it is possible that the consciousness of imaging can slip away entirely, in which case an ordinary perceptual presentation would result. Preventing this consciousness of imaging from arising from the start in a purely intuitive manner is the effect produced by images simulating the look of reality, images of the sort found in the wax museum, and the like. Although in such cases we have a conceptual knowledge of the fact that the appearances are merely image appearances, in the intuitive experience itself the re-presentative moment, which is otherwise intimately mingled with the appearances, is absent. But this moment is decisive for intuitive image presentation. We have genuine perceptual presentations in those cases, accompanied by the thought that their objects are mere images. The appearance itself, however, presents itself as the appearance of a present object and not as an image. Indeed, in naïvely contemplating it, the appearance forces us to make the intuitive perceptual judgment. In doing this, it deceives us. In truth, there is perhaps another (nonappearing) object, standing to the appearing object in the relation of original to image. We know all of this, and yet the illusion continues to exist, since the appearance possesses the characteristic of normal perceptual presentati #Quote by Edmund Husserl
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Walter Isaacson
#21. Back in 1917, when Einstein had analyzed the "cosmological considerations" arising from his general theory of relativity, most astronomers thought that the universe consisted only of our Milky Way, floating with its 100 billion or so stars in a void of empty space. #Quote by Walter Isaacson
Perceptual Relativity quotes by A. N. Wilson
#22. Since Einstein developed his theory of relativity, and Rutherford and Bohr revolutionised physics, our picture of the world has radically changed. #Quote by A. N. Wilson
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Harun Yahya
#23. Today, the relativity of time is a proven scientific fact. This was
revealed by Einstein's theory of relativity during the early part of the
20th century. Until then, it was not known that time was relative, nor
that it could change according to the circumstances. Yet, the renowned
scientist Albert Einstein proved this fact by discovering the theory of
relativity. He showed that time is dependent on mass and velocity.
However, the Qur'an had already included information about
time's being relative! Some verses about the subject read:
… A day with your Lord is equivalent to a thousand years in the way
you count. (Qur'an, 22:47)
He directs the whole affair from heaven to Earth. Then it will again
ascend to Him on a day whose length is a thousand years by the way you
measure. (Qur'an, 32:5)
The angels and the spirit ascend to Him in a day whose length is fifty
thousand years. (Qur'an, 70:4)
The fact that the relativity of
time is so definitely mentioned
in the Qur'an,
which began to be
revealed in 610,
is more evidence
that it
is a divine
book. #Quote by Harun Yahya
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Dan Mangan
#24. If you use language that divides people and makes people who agree with you really stoked and people who disagree with you disengaged then you're preaching to a choir, and you've lost any kind of relativity across the spectrum. So it's important to be subtle and understand that there's a lot more you can learn. #Quote by Dan Mangan
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Freeman Dyson
#25. Black holes were invented by J. Robert Oppenheimer and Hartland Snyder in 1939. Starting from Einstein's theory of general relativity, Oppenheimer and Snyder found solutions of Einstein's equations that described what happens to a massive star when it has exhausted its supplies of nuclear energy. The star collapses gravitationally and disappears from the visible universe, leaving behind only an intense gravitational field to mark its presence. The star remains in a state of permanent free fall, collapsing endlessly inward into the gravitational pit without ever reaching the bottom. This solution of Einstein's equations was profoundly novel. It has had enormous impact on the later development of astrophysics. #Quote by Freeman Dyson
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Felix Alba-Juez
#26. After some cogitation, it is difficult not to agree with Herman Bondi (1919 - 2005), who in his book 'Relativity and Common Sense' says:
... The surprising thing, surely, is that molecules in a gas behave so much as billiard balls, not that electrons behave so little like billiard balls. #Quote by Felix Alba-Juez
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Milan Kundera
#27. Humor: the divine flash that reveals the world in its moral ambiguity and man in his profound incompetence to judge others; humor: the intoxicating relativity of human things; the strange pleasure that conies of the certainty that there is no certainty.
But humor, to recall Octavio Paz, is "the great invention of the modern spirit." It has not been with us forever, and it won't be with us forever either.
With a heavy heart, I imagine the day when Panurge no longer makes people laugh. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Frederick Lenz
#28. When you die in this life, you might be experiencing pain, but the structure of your perceptual field will determine your next lifetime. That structure has been determined by the way you have led this life. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Robert Breault
#29. Every great artist raises art to a science, and every great scientist raises science to an art, hence we have Michelangelo's David and Einstein's Theory of Relativity. #Quote by Robert Breault
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Don DeLillo
#30. This happened back east of course. I've heard that term a lot since coming to this part of the country. But I never think of the term as a marker of geography. It's a reference to time, a statement about time, about all the densities of being and experience, it's time disguised, it's light-up time, shifting smoky time tricked out as some locus of stable arrangement. When people use that term they're talking about the way things used to be before they moved out here, the way the world used to be, not just New Jersey or South Philly, or before their parents moved, or grandparents, and about the way things still exist in some private relativity theory, some smoky shifting mind dimension, or before the other men and women came this way, the ones in Conestoga wagons, a term we learned in grade school, a back-east term, stemming from the place where the wagons were made. (pg.333) #Quote by Don DeLillo
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Paul Dirac
#31. Theoretical physicists accept the need for mathematical beauty as an act of faith ... For example, the main reason why the theory of relativity is so universally accepted is its mathematical beauty. #Quote by Paul Dirac
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Albert Einstein
#32. More careful reflection teaches us, however, that the special theory of relativity does not compel us to deny ether...To deny the ether is ultimately to assume that empty space has no physical qualities whatever. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Daniel Levitin
#33. Those dabs of paint and lines become art when form and flow are created out of lower-level perceptual elements. When they combine harmoniously they give rise to perspective, foreground and background, and ultimately to emotion and other aesthetic attributes. #Quote by Daniel Levitin
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Felix Alba-Juez
#34. If Relativity Theory kills our deepest convictions, why not start by finding out why we believed in them for millennia? #Quote by Felix Alba-Juez
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Roger Penrose
#35. So what I'm saying is why don't we think about changing Schrodinger's equation at some level when masses become too big at the level that you might have to worry about Einstein's general relativity. #Quote by Roger Penrose
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Kip Thorne
#36. I became interested in this question of whether you can build wormholes for interstellar travel. I realized that if you had a wormhole, the theory of general relativity by itself would permit you to go backward in time. #Quote by Kip Thorne
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Oliver Sacks
#37. Similar considerations arise with regard to recovery and rehabilitation after strokes and other injuries. There are no rules; there is no prescribed path of recovery; every patient must discover or create his own motor and perceptual patterns, his own solutions to the challenges that face him; and it is the function of a sensitive therapist to help him in this. And #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#38. Communism has never concealed the fact that it rejects all absolute concepts of morality. It scoffs at any consideration of "good" and "evil" as indisputable categories. Communism considers morality to be relative, to be a class matter. Depending on circumstances and the political situation, any act, including murder, even the killing of hundreds of thousands, could be good or could be bad. It all depends on class ideology. And who defines this ideology? The whole class cannot get together to pass judgment. A handful of people determine what is good and what is bad. But I must say that in this respect Communism has been most successful. It has infected the whole world with the belief in the relativity of good and evil. Today, many people apart from the Communists are carried away by this idea. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Vassily Ivanchuk
#39. Some scientist needs to explain to spectators Einstein's relativity theory. Before his explanation, he says: 'I have to suffer a lot explaining something I don't understand myself.' This relates to my game: I didn't understand anything! #Quote by Vassily Ivanchuk
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Rick Delmonico
#40. If a photon is emitted by an electron inside of a clock on Earth and it travels to a clock four light years away, time stops for the clock on Earth and time jumps forward eight years for the distant clock, also the electron that will capture the photon becomes infinitely large, relative to the photon but the electron that emitted it does not become infinitely small therefore, time is not perfectly symmetrical. #Quote by Rick Delmonico
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Eoin Colfer
#41. Have you ever heard of the theory of relativity?"
Artemis blinked. "Is this a joke? I have traveled through time, Doctor. I think I know a little something about relativity. #Quote by Eoin Colfer
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Steven Wright
#42. I heard that in relativity theory, space and time are the same thing. Einstein discovered this when he kept showing up three miles late for his meetings. #Quote by Steven Wright
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Chris Matakas
#43. Relativity is a beautiful, irrifutable truth. We must acknowledge that wearing a black belt in jiu jitsu does not make you a black belt in life. In the home, there are black belts who are white belt fathers, and there are white belts who are black belt fathers. This holds true for all areas of life. A black belt does not mean you are successful in life. It does mean that you have mastered this art to an enormous degree, and that the skills you have acquired can be transmuted to a plethora of other activities. It does not mean, however, that you have done this. #Quote by Chris Matakas
Perceptual Relativity quotes by Albert Einstein
#44. Sometimes one pays most for the things one gets for nothing. #Quote by Albert Einstein
