All scientific observations are likely to be superseded by later scientists, writes Ian Flintoff, while Tony Maynard-Smith says that new discoveries do not prove Einstein ‘wrong’
The brain can read these patterns and learn them. In this way, we can time music or specific tasks to be performed, for example, one second after a signal. Even though not all the clock mechanisms in humans are known, biological clocks share a property with all human-built and non-living clocks: they are limited by quantum mechanics. Even the simple pendulum is limited by quantum theory.
The Nobel Prize in Physics this year was awarded to Roger Penrose(1/2) “for the discovery that black hole formation is a robust prediction of the general theory of relativity ” and the other half to Reinhard Genzel, and Andrea Ghez “or the discovery of a supermassive compact object at the center of our galaxy.”
