this book is so good and it makes me laugh and smile and understand basic concepts

this music I could listen to while studying optics and quantum mechanics (there isn’t much music that works with mentally intensive activities like those), cuddling significant other, sex, lying on the ground staring at the ceiling, eating pork fat in silence, etc. etc. etc.

i associate it with a certain color of my existence

Color - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ⟶

This is so fascinating to me. I’ve only payed attention to the physics of sound before. But color — electromagnetic waves, polarization, quantum mechanics, spectral colors, pigments, cone cells, mantis shrimp, QUALIA.

learning a new scientific concept and not really understanding the details of why it works is analogous to sketching out a composition or piece of art and not really knowing how the finished piece will turn out — ¬†overwhelming, scary, but the first step

fixed the audio!

for about a week now the audio on my macbook air has been broken; figured it was a hardware problem. finally took the initiative to take it apart. removed a speaker, reconnected some shit, and it was fixed.

“Music had stirred him like that. Music had troubled him many times. But music was not articulate. It was not a new world, but rather another chaos, that it created in us. Words! Mere words! How terrible they were! How clear, and vivid, and cruel! One could not escape from them. And yet what a subtle magic there was in them! They seemed to be able to give a plastic form to formless things, and to have a music of their own as sweet as that of viol or of lute. Mere words! Was there anything so real as words?”
