The interaction between starlings depends not so much on the general distance between them as on the connections between the closest birds. The first 18 pages was about his experience trying to define and capture how a collective gathering of starlings can move with incredible unison. As a young child, I was interested in numbers – my mother told me I learned to read numbers aged three. When it was time to go to university, I pondered if I should do physics or maths, but in the end I went for physics. These concepts echo through nature, with nature being random in its initial selection and deterministic in its outcome.

I read the book from the library, and after the story about the starlings, it quickly gets very complicated.

In her novel The Waves , Virginia Woolf wrote about something similar occurring among a group of young friends: “The complexity of things become more close…What am I? Hugh Everett’s mathematics showed the value in not needing to achieve decoherence to understand the system, but his interpretation in 1956 was not accepted by Bohr, even though Wheeler was initially excited by its prospects.One Michelin-starred chef even commented: “Let’s leave cooking to the chefs while physicists do experiments in their lab. Woolf recognized something deeply felt and shimmering amongst us; Parisi, with his own tools, recognizes the same thing. It is important to understand how scientific consensus is achieved, how individual discoveries become validated by the scientific community.

Maybe because there were more popular books on physics than mathematics, which is so abstract that it’s difficult to describe.There’s a growing lack of trust in science, with people denying Covid, or the need for vaccinations, or climate change.
