Full quote: "Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind". - Virginia Woolf | A Room of One's Own. . Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) was a british author, literary critic, feminist and modern thinker. Most known books include; "mrs. Dalloway", "To the lighthouse" and "Orlando". Woolf's childhood came to an abrupt end in 1895 with the death of her mother and her first mental breakdown, followed two years later by the death of her stepsister and a mother figure to her, Stella Duckworth. From 1897 to 1901, she attended the Ladies' Department of King's College London, where she studied classics and history and came into contact with early reformers of women's higher education and the women's rights movement. Other important influences were her Cambridge-educated brothers and unfettered access to her father's vast library. Encouraged by her father, Woolf began writing professionally in 1900. Her father's death in 1905 caused another mental breakdown for Woolf. She became deeply troubled, and eventually developed a mental illness. Woolf is considered to be one of the most important twentieth century novelists. A modernist, she was one of the pioneers of using stream of consciousness as a narrative device, and her reputation was at its greatest during the 1930s. Tragically she committed suicide in 1941, at the beginning of WW2, by walking into a river with her pockets filled with rocks Her writings have in later times been studied through a feministic lens, as well as being studied with a focus on mental health. . . . . . #virginiawoolf#poetry#literature#classic#mentalhealth#wisdom#enlightenment#life#knowledge#truth#existentialism#philosophy#feminist#meaning#philosophyquotes#quote#soul#imagination#words#janeausten#feminism#tolstoy#oscarwilde#nietzsche
In the late 19th century, scientists were puzzling over a form of radioactive decay known as beta decay. In this process, a neutron within a nucleus will spontaneously become a proton, emitting an electron in the process. However, beta decay seemed to violate two of nature’s most fundamental laws: the law of conservation of energy and momentum. Somehow, when scientists measured the energy released during the decay process, there was not enough energy in the final arrangement of particles, and the proton was standing still despite releasing an electron. To explain these two conundrums, physicist Wolfgang Pauli proposed the existence of the neutrino in the 1930s. The neutrino was a massless particle that traveled at the speed of light and was emitted along with an electron during the process of beta decay. Furthermore, neutrinos can be emitted in large amounts by the sun and other stars. In the mid-20th century, however, incoming neutrinos from the sun began to show an anomaly. Scientists were only detecting about a third of the number of neutrinos that solar models had predicted. Either the astronomers were wrong about the sun or something else was going on. It eventually became discovered that neutrinos could come in three different types: electron neutrino, tau neutrino, and the muon neutrino. Any neutrino will oscillate between the three different kinds, and so only a third were being detected because the technology was designed to only catch one of the three types of neutrino. Interestingly, this discovery led to another mystery; for this oscillation to take place, the neutrino must haver mass. This flew in the face of the original prediction of the neutrino having zero mass. Soon, scientists calculated the mass of the neutrino to be around 0.0000059 times smaller than an electron. The discovery of the neutrino helped further scientists understanding of the Standard Model. #science#astronomy#nasa#astrophysics_ #nature#knowledge#math#physics
