Summary of Abarim Publications' introductions to
1. Quantum Mechanics for Beginners
How the princess began to feel the pea
Hold that thought (1).
Everything that exists, including forces, is made from quantum particles.Believing the unbelievable
Quantum mechanics requires a new way of thinking.
2. Big Rules for Small Particles
Hold that thought (2a)
Particles travel according to a chance-wave, a.k.a. the Schrödinger WaveThe Famous Two Slots Experiment
The various chance-waves of traveling particles may interfere. In fact, a particle may interfere with itself, making it seem as if there are more than one particle traveling, or that the quantum can be divided.
Hold that thought (2b)
The phenomenon called quantum tunneling allows particles (and hence objects) to zip away and pop up somewhere else.
3. Bohr and Ernie (and Pauli)
The Demokritos Atom.
Demokritos (5th century BC) concluded that atoms (individables) should exist. When the 'atom' was finally identified Rutherford (1911) split it, and proved that what we call atom, was not at all Demokritos atom.The Bohr Atom.
Niels Bohr figured out that our 'atoms' are in fact a cloud of electrons that surround a nucleus.Pauli's Exclusion Principle.

4. The Quantum Nursery
Where and how quantum particles are born
Quantum particles can not grow. There is nothing smaller than a quantum; a quantum can not be composed of smaller or previous things.A Bank Account of Motion
Hold that thought (4a)
Hold that thought (4b):
All particles are members of two-somes: particle & anti-particle.
5. The Standard Model
Breaches in symmetry.
The universe started out in Grand Unification. Then the symmetry breached and forces and particles emerged.The four forces of nature
Are: Gravity, Strong Nuclear Force, Electromagnetism and the Weak Nuclear Force.The particles
Are 3 groups of 12: 12 quarks, 12 leptons and 12 bosons.The Standard Model &The evolution of the Standard Model over time.
Click here for a look at the Standard ModelSupersymmetry and the Higgs particle.
Scientists expect that beyond the Standard Model there is another, supersymmetry, so that every particle, in addition to its anti-twin, is endowed with a super-partner plus its anti-partner.
6. Does the Universe Expand?
Does the Universe Expand?
No it doesn't. The universe implodes and the past is all around us.Wars
In the very early universe mass was all that mattered, and massive particles tore like bowling balls through the ranks of the smaller.Famine
As the universe 'expanded' the energy-density lessened, which made it increasingly difficult for the larger particles to emerge.The nucleosynthesis
After either the wars or the famine knocked most of the particles out of the game, quarks were able to combine into three-somes called protons, which would eventually be the building block for the nucleus of every atom in the universe.The Great Light
The turmoil in the early universe was so great that photons could not travel very far without being absorbed. This changed when the universe had calmed down enough for electrons to be bound to nuclei. When this occurred the universe achieved its signature translucence.
7. Chaos Theory for Beginners
Life finds a way
Nature is highly complex, and the only prediction you can make is that she is unpredictable.What is Chaos Theory?
Chaos Theory is a mathematical sub-discipline that studies complex systems.How Chaos Theory was born and why.
Chaos Theory required the quantum mechanical revolution and the invention of powerful computers to handle large amounts of data. Lorentz, who was after understanding the weather, accidentally spawned Chaos Theory.
Hold that thought (7):
Complex systems often seek one specific state to settle in. That state is an attractor. Sometimes the system doesn't actually settle but swings from state to state. That's called a strange attractor.
9. Children of the Primes
Gödel's shocking discovery.
The Incompleteness Theorem states that no axiomatic system can ever prove the consistency of it's own axioms and will therefor always remain incomplete.A logical system (scientific, philosophical, religious, legal)
Hold that thought (9)
Even if we not know what Truth is, we may derive some certainties about it when we know that a logical system can not reach it: Truth must be singular and it must be bizarre.
10. The Most Deceitful Thing
A face in the clouds.
Mankind's amazing ability to see patterns is often as helpful as it is confusing. Man's primary sense is vision and when our eyes tell us that there's a pattern our other senses are often discarded.Nuts or nostos
Hold that thought (10a)
There are two kinds of patterns: patterns that are projected by the observer, and patterns that emerge from the elements that make them up. Only the latter prevails after the observer stops observing.
Hold that thought (10b):
Hold that thought (10c):
11. The Mandelbrot Set
A marshmallow man made from marshmallow men.
The Mandelbrot Set comes from a formula that gives a pretty picture (endearingly nick-named the marshmallow man), but there's something very special about this particular picture because when we zoom in on any part of it, we are bound to come across the very same basic form, embedded in the texture of the mother image.
12. The Household Set
A House made from many houses.
This model is called the Household Set because the Household Image is identical to the way a household is organized in the Bible: a large organization of sons and personnel acting on the government of a central abba or house-father.
[ First Level: The Atom ]
[ Second Level: The Living Cell ]
[ Third Level: The Conscious Mind ]
[ Fourth Level: United People of Planet Earth (UPPE) ]
13. For Whom the Bell Curve Tolls
Crazy little thing called gravity
In the Household Set, not only the general appearance is mimicked on a larger scale, also the fundamental qualities that come with the shape. Atoms come with four forces, and hence do the other levels of the HHS.
14. Scripture Theory for Beginners
What is Scripture Theory?
Scripture Theory is to texts what Chaos Theory is to creation. Scripture Theory tries to isolate patterns in the narrative, in order to understand it better and to finally arrive at some kind of system that describes the principles of a text's governing dynamics.Something a bit more complicated.
If you believe they put a man on the moon...Examples of Biblical Scripture Theory (1)
Genesis 2:7 and Acts 2 are self-similar.Examples of Biblical Scripture Theory (2)
Piggybacking on the gender-inversion principle, the image of the Word-In-The-Crib appears smack in the middle of the Book of Judges.Examples of Biblical Scripture Theory (3)
The Scientific Method may be very clever, but it isn't very new: Paul penned it down first.
15. To Be is To Do
A dynamic language
Unlike English, the Hebrew language is very dynamic and looks at motion much rather than appearance.
Hold that thought (15)
According to Gerard 't Hooft, bosons behave like lemmings. Hmm, they should have sent a poet...
16. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
When we look closely at these horsemen, we see a striking resemblance with the four natural forces:
The white horseman; Gravity.
The red horseman; Strong Nuclear Force.
The black horseman; Electromagnetism.
The green horseman; Weak Nuclear Force.
17. Abraham and he Standard Model in Genesis.
The significance of Abraham as point in the development of man.
The proceedings before Abraham are certainly significant in the bringing forth of the post-Abrahamic period, but they are of a completely different reality. Things that really mattered after Abraham, were not around before him.Abram's (or Abraham's) family
Abraham's family up to Christ develops nearly identical (self-similar) to the Standard Model.Summary
The development of matter versus that of mind.The evolution of the Standard Model compared with the family of Abraham:
more of the same, but now graphically...
18. Some major interpretations of Genesis 1
The scientific record seems to reveal a completely different story than the revelatory record. This is sad, because it's for no discernible reason.
