Warped Minds Think Alike


Einstein’s theory of relativity states that gravity warps space and time. But what factors can bend a mind? The curvature of time and space might be looked at as a perversion of Euclidian ideas, such as the notion of the shortest distance between two points being a straight line. But what goes on inside the brain? Are paraphilias created by magnetism, from sexual energies detoured by inhibition. Black holes of course tempt oblivion. Step over an event horizon and you descend Eurydice-like into an underworld devoid of light. The Large Hadron Collider creates a force field which gives birth to bosons. Have you ever imagined what it's like in an LHC? Quantum particles can be in two places at the same time. Wouldn't anyone who proposed such an idea at the time of Democritus--who first postulated the existence of the atom, or Lucretius, who wrote De rerum natura, On the Nature of Things, one of the first attempts at a unified theory, albeit in poetic form--like Copernicus or Galileo, be accused of heresy?
