Más sobre la escuela de quatum gravity …

Me encontré estos comentarios sobre la escuela de quantum gravity celebrada en Morelia (ver post anterior):

Clifford Johnson is blogging from the quantum gravity school in Morelia, where he’s shocked to find the “totally bizarre” situation that the students there aren’t very enthusiastic about string theory. He attributes this to their ignorance:

Here’s the really odd thing about all this … : While this is a school on Quantum Gravity, after talking with the students for a while one learns that in most cases the little they’ve heard about string theory is often essentially over 20 years out of date and almost always totally skewed to the negative, to the extent that many of them are under the impression that string theory has nothing to do with quantum gravity at all! It is totally bizarre, and I suspect it is largely a result of things that are said and passed around within their research community.. So there are a few students here and there who have some familiarity with strings, huddling together at times for warmth in a sea of miscommunication, misinformation, and strange preconceptions.

Care to comment?

Me parece interesante el enunciado: the little they’ve heard about string theory is often essentially over 20 years out of date and almost always totally skewed to the negative

y también: I suspect it is largely a result of things that are said and passed around within their research community

mhh, que perspicaz!!!! 😉 (y eso que no ha ido a las de iones pesados!!)

  1. Pues si uno se toma el tiempo de leer los comentarios el blog de Clifford, se puede ver que el no se refiere a la comunidad en Mexico, su comentario es algo mas general que eso, lo cual quizas es peor. Aqui un ejemplo de sus respuestas a un comentario sobre Mexico en el mismo post:

    “Also, concerning missed points, I remind you that this is an international school held in Mexico (deliberately located in spacetime to match the international gravity meeting following immediately after in nearby Mexico City), not a school for Mexicans. With respect, MSP, I can’t even figure out how you read my post as being about Mexico or Mexican science at all. I don’t even think the words Mexico or Mexican are written anywhere in the post!! Please enlighten me.”
