PROGRAMNOTE:

Som
 mange
 andre,
har
 jeg 
tilbragt 
mange 
timer
 i 
toget 
imellem
 København
og
 Århus…

Mine
 forsøg 
ud 
i 
tidsfordriv/effektiv
 udnyttelse
 
har 
været 
legio.

Men
 
jeg faldt 
over en 
podcast.

Richard Wolfson: 02 – Heaven and Earth, Place and Motion:

…. The natural state of motion is not to be at rest on the surface of the earth.

That’s the state of motion you get to because of things like friction and air resistance

and things that you bump into like the floor when the ball falls.

The natural state of motion is to move in a straight line at constant speed….

Se se … fra denne lille sentens en sen eftermiddagstime i toget hjem fra Århus springer ideen til The Problem of Motion in straight Lines.
