Psi function psychic muse

One of the equations that gves the wavefunction is the (one-dimensional time dependent to keep things simplier) Schroedinger equation, which has the form: i ∂ Ψ ∂ t = 2 2 m ∂ 2 Ψ ∂ x 2 + V Ψ i ∂ Ψ ∂ t = 2 2 m ∂ 2 Ψ ∂ x 2 + V Ψ Psi is the wave function, i is the square root of -1, x is postion, h-bar is the Dirac constant (or the rationailzed Planck constant if you like), t is time, m is mass and V (V(x) if you like) is the potential. If you were to make a measuremnt, the proabilty of finding the particle at point x at time t, P(x,t), is given by (if we assume that the wavefunction is normalized): P ( x , t ) = | Ψ ( x , t ) | 2 P ( x , t ) = | Ψ ( x , t ) | 2

Freedom

"I thought ten thousand swords must have leaped from their scabbards to avenge even a look that threatened her [Marie Antoinette, the French Queen] with insult. But the age of chivalry is gone. That of sophisters, economists, and calculators, has succeeded; and the glory of Europe is extinguished for ever. Never, never more shall we behold the generous loyalty to rank and sex, that proud submission, that dignified obedience, that subordination of the heart, which kept alive
servitude itself, the spirit of an exalted freedom." edmund burke
