Thank you grin emoticon Yeah, I think about stuff that I shouldn’t have to. Like the Paul Exclusion principle. One part of me is annoyed that I can’t control it. Since I was a kid, I imagined I could just make the electrons of body open up like venetian blinds and a wall’s electrons line up like venetian blinds and then I could just pass through solid matter. Seemed logical.. when I was 11 anyway. Still kinda does.
So, Pauli Exclusion principle annoys me because *photons* get to overlap, connect and separate and all that but NOOOO, not electrons.
At the same time, I’m glad for it, begrudgingly. I’m sitting on a chair. I’m WELL AWARE that, thanks to the Pauli Exclusion principle, my ass stays here. But what if it got turned off? I’d go through the chair, the floor, the ground, to the center of the earth and just… stay there.
So, I’m reluctantly glad for it. But then… THEN I’m annoyed because they don’t -REALLY- know why it works yet.
90 year old idea and they can’t explain ‘cept it’s a principle.
Anyway, the chair thing – if I let myself, I’d think it all of the time and never sit down again… and be nervous standing.. or interacting with matter at all.
But I inhibit it, along with 1000 other things not worth thinking about. But they crop up now and again. Brain never stops churning, for better or worse tongue emoticon
