Born to do Math 73 – Buffers, Far and Away, and Again

Born to do Math 73 – Buffers, Far and Away, and Again
Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner

[Beginning of recorded material]

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: Two things come to mind from that. One is an older discussion, which I am recalling around “buffers” of order preservation in the universe at various scales. Another one is the utility of using an IC framework in general.

If you’re using an IC framework, there are distinctions that you can make between fields that are sufficient, so that misuse of terms outside of their proper field then makes non-sense. So, you may use sociological terminology in physics.

Rick Rosner: Feynman lived in the early era of media. He was pissed at modern advertising, which was being pissed at the loose use of the word “energy.” He had a precise meaning in the context of physics. He hated its use in advertising because it never referenced actual physical energy.

It always referred to some young woman because she was heavy and jumping up and down.
