Heisenberg's Garden

This piece presents mushrooms chaotically spread over a hyperbolic paraboloid scientific structure, offering a statement on nature’s power to overcome the structures that we try to impose upon it.

 I am utilizing mathematical modules in this piece as a base structure to define our attempts to define and confine which we cannot. Newton and Laplace declared that the future of the universe was determined by its current state. The discovery of chaos theory supported the claim that all things have formulae through interconnected relations… but also potentially not. This claim is based on elements never having true states, only observed states (platonic realism) with noise as the difference, and the slightest noise being able to cause incredibly large differences in predicted results through these chaotic relations.

Quantum theory embraces these constructs of chance, chaos and platonic realism in one principle called Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle, of which gives limits to possible determinative measurements. A classic example of this principle belongs to wave mechanics where one may be able to precisely know the momentum or position of an electron, but not both factors at the same time.

Quantum mechanics have been found to have potential occurrence in the brain, though the brain has it’s natural counter balancing enactments for such miniscule forces, through the exponential chaotic relations, quantum theory suggests we have the potential to change from within, without being bent by deterministic karma and essentially have free will.
