The words “force vive” are a tribute to my favorite 18th-century physicist Emilie du Châtelet. It’s her own handwriting, taken from her edits in the margins of Voltaire’s notebooks.
The heart squared (the 2 is also Emilie’s handwriting) is a tribute to playwright Lauren Gunderson. Her play about Emilie inspired me to continue pushing forward in my physics education at a time when I really (really!) wanted to give up.
"Because lives aren’t equations…they are variables inside them. The governing equations are universal,But a life lived fully can still change the universe.”

so maybe I just need to read it a few more times to fully understand it. Or I’m just dumb. But

what is this EXACTLY saying lol? I sorta get it. But I’m not content with my assumed understanding

"Feeling better" has not been found to lead to or cause getting better in functional ways (e.g., establishing relationships, pursuing a meaningful career, practicing health habits, etc.) It seems to be more the case that establishing those relationships and pursuing a meaningful career and practicing healthy habits leads to “feeling better.”
So engaging in those positive behaviors even when you don’t “feel” great or your symptoms are distressful is more important than simply getting to a place where you “feel better.”
Practicing healthy things when distressed > waiting until no longer distressed (if possible) and then practicing healthy things.

stop posting islamophobes and islamophobic content in the science tag, learn some fucking history and treat Muslims with respect, without them there would be no ‘scientific literacy’ for your white fave to follow. Muslims aren’t these bazooka toting, anti-science, anti-reason group of people that you get to use as a marker for how intelligible and “enlightened” you are over them. if anything you might learn a thing or two by closely looking at their true ideals be it in science or society in general. tl;dr your islamophobia and antibrowness is not #science.

NPR Science: Sorry, Lucy: The Myth Of The Misused Brain Is 100 Percent False
ERIC WESTERVELT, HOST:
SCARLETT JOHANSSON: I'm able to do things I've never done before. I feel everything and I can control the elements around me.
UNIDENTIFIED MAN: That's amazing.
WESTERVELT: You've probably heard this idea before. Most people only use 10% of their brains. The other 90% of the basically dormant. Well, in the movie "Lucy," Morgan Freeman gives us this what-if scenario?
MORGAN FREEMAN: What if there was a way of accessing 100% of our brain? What might we be capable of?
DAVID EAGLEMAN: We would be capable of exactly what we're doing now, which is to say, we do use a hundred percent of our brain.
WESTERVELT: That is David Eagleman.
EAGLEMAN: I'm a neuroscientist at Baylor College of Medicine.
WESTERVELT: And he says, basically, all of us are like Lucy. We use all of our brains, all of time.
EAGLEMAN: Even when you're just sitting around doing nothing your brain is screaming with activity all the time, around the clock; even when you're asleep it's screaming with activity.
WESTERVELT: In other words, this is a total myth. Very wrong, but still very popular. Take this clip from an Ellen DeGeneres stand-up special.
ELLEN DEGENERES: It's true, they say we use ten percent of our brain. Ten percent of our brain. And I think, imagine what we could accomplish if we used the other 60 percent? Do you know what I'm saying?
AUDIENCE: (LAUGHTER).
DAVID SPADE: Let's say the average person uses ten percent of their brain.
WESTERVELT: It's even in the movie "Tommy Boy."
SPADE: How much do you use? One and a half percent. The rest is clogged with malted hops and bong residue.
WESTERVELT: Ariana Anderson is a researcher at UCLA. She looks at brain scans all day long. And she says, if someone were actually using just ten percent of their brain capacity...
ARIANA ANDERSON: Well, they would probably be declared brain-dead.
WESTERVELT: Sorry, "Tommy Boy." No one knows exactly where this myth came from but it's been around since at least the early 1900's. So why is this wrong idea still so popular?
ANDERSON: Probably gives us some sort of hope that if we are doing things we shouldn't do, such as watching too much TV, alcohol abuse, well, it might be damaging our brain but it's probably damaging the 90 percent that we don't use. And that's not true. Whenever you're doing something that damages your brain, it's damaging something that's being used, and it's going to leave some sort of deficit behind.
EAGLEMAN: For a long time I've wondered, why is this such a sticky myth?
WESTERVELT: Again, David Eagleman.
EAGLEMAN: And I think it's because it gives us a sense that there's something there to be unlocked, that we could be so much better than we could. And really, this has the same appeal as any fairytale or superhero story. I mean, it's the neural equivalent to Peter Parker becoming Spiderman.
WESTERVELT: In other words, it's an idea that belongs in Hollywood.
