The meaning withoutFor living, he reads, listens to music, travels, treks the Himalayas, cycles city roads, and drinks coffee. Einstein and Neils Bohr, his lifelong friend, and a founding father of Quantum physics, used to argue incessantly about the uncertainty engrained in the subatomic world. Thus, we not only find meaning within our lives, but strive to see a meaning without too; in the world we live in, in the events that surround us. Our intuitive mind, obsessed with deriving truth in the world from its own experience, wants to see our life woven with strands of certainty. Uncertainty ticks relentlessly at the core of the universe, i.e., the world of subatomic particles. Laws of Quantum Mechanics, the science dealing with this realm of our universe, can only be studied on the grid of probability. Intuitive decisions, which come to mind instantaneously, served this purpose.
