“We are trained from an early age that mathematics and language are two discrete worlds. The Inkas, however, collapsed them into a three-dimensional construct – an achievement of civilisational complexity in the form of narrative cords.”

“A pion is charged and can be steered into a beam. When a pion decays, it will produce a neutrino that travels in roughly the same direction (positively charged pions produce neutrinos when they decay; negatively charged ones produce antineutrinos). These can be sent to detectors that are hundreds of kilometers away, since the beam will travel through the Earth without many of its neutrinos interacting with anything. At long distances, the neutrinos have enough time to shift to a new identity, allowing us to study flavor oscillations.”
