Stirring the Porridge with Albert E. [investigation]

Can that act of stirring porridge provide insights into the puzzle of light’s quantum wave/particle duality?

Photographer / author David Gepp (pron. ‘jep’) explains how – citing :

1) An encounter with Professor Jacques Mandelbrojt (cousin of Benoit Mandelbrot, of fractals fame)

2) Various contemplations of Albert Einstein’s gedankenexperiments (thought experiments)

3) The experience of porridge-stirring (to stop it sticking to the saucepan)

See : Stirring the Porridge with Albert E  LEONARDO journal, Vol. 52, no. 5

BONUS: At the 2006 Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony, Professor Benoit Mandelbrot, who invented the concept of fractals, here spoke on the topic: FRACTALS. His seven-word summary has become a classic definition, against which all others are measured.

Here’s video of that historic moment:
