Slooze writes "Dennis Overbye's essay in today's New York Times, 'No Man, Quark or Electron Is an Island', discusses the possible societal and even metaphysical effects of quantum physics' poetic metaphors. Are notions about mass without mass, it from bit, entangled particles, and supersymmetry, for example, exerting subtle influences on the way we perceive ourselves and our socio-political relationships?" An odd little piece.
"Today's robots are very primitive, capable of understanding only a few
simple instructions such as 'go left', 'go right', and 'build car'."
