The Institute for Jewish Thought and Culture is getting started in Philadelphia. It is meant to highlight the best in Jewish thought. The extraordinarily strong Jewish influence is felt throughout the worlds of knowledge and culture but what could be a better example of the best Jewish thoughts than theoretical physics? That's why the first lecture of the Institute is
- Brian Greene, "The Theory of Everything"
- The Secrets of the Universe Revealed
While German physics was very important, especially by the 1920s, there is no doubt that a larger part of the key revolutions such as relativity, quantum mechanics, quantum field theory, the standard model of particle physics, and string theory was shaped by another nation - namely by powerful Jewish minds and their friends, and no amount of politically correct mumbo jumbo, not even mumbo jumbo from the mouths of Jewish American leftists, can change this fact. ;-)
Is this above-the-average influence purely due to their 10 additional IQ points or is it partially determined by the Jewish traditions? Whatever the answer is, the world owes a lot to that nation. And as far as I know, the only link of mine with the Jews is that my last name is a Yiddish first name, as the fans of Motl der Operator, not to be confused with the Hamiltonian, and Motl the Cantor's Son know very well. ;-)
OK, fine, there is one more link. Motl.ORG is an international Jewish teenager organization - March Of The Living - that is however listed below this blog by Google. ;-)
