Does perfection exist in our Universe?
Our uniinformative essay conclusion outlineverse is full of imperfection, from fundamental particles, like the electron, to galaxies. Â Life itself is only possible due to imperfections. In fact, life prefers molecules with specific asymmetric spatial configurations: the molecule that constitute all protein in living organisms are identified as “left-handed,” and the sugars that form the DNA as “right-handed.”
The perfect symmetries that we use to depict the Universe at the time of the Big Bang, do not describe the Universe we live in. The Higgs boson literally took that formless perfection and froze structure into it destrobuy papers for college onlineing the sameness. Breaking perfect symmetries allowed the formation of atoms and the complexity of the Universe we live in. Â
Can maths be considered perfect?
â€śA physical law must possess mathematical beauty. â€śâ€¦â€ťthe mathematician plays a game in which he himself invents the rule while the physicist plays a game in which the rules are provided by Nature, but as time goes on it becomes increasingly evident that the rules which the mathematician finds interesting are the same as those which Nature has chosen.â€ť Paul Dirac
Mathematics is a product of our minds, it obeys the rules of logic, it is the perfection of pure logic. Â Physics describes the phenomena in our Universe using the language of mathematics. For physics perfection is the simplicity, symmetry, and elegance of a mathematical equation that describe complex phenomena. Â We can use simple and elegant mathematical equations to describe the fundamental laws of nature, and to predict the unforeseen. There is a very simple and elegant equation written by Paul Dirac (Nobel prize in Physics 1933) that unifies the theory of special relativity and quantum physics. This equation was written to describe the electron, and remarkably predicted the existence of antimatter.
