The science behind the mad name

You might be thinking that the blog’s name is slightly bizarre. You are probably right. However, here’s the rationale behind it:

  • Anachronism: a person or a thing that is chronologically out of place (me).
  • Coriolis effect: the apparent deflection of a moving object that is a result of the earth’s rotation (to the right in the northern hemisphere and to the left in the southern hemisphere, as we all know).
  • Synthesis: a person that is chronologically out of place and apparently deflected off an initial trajectory. Or by extension, any blog entry posted by said person and thus exhibiting the same inherent characteristics.

Note: the Coriolis effect, as theories of Quantum physics do, supposes the presence of an observer. It is not an actual force and the object itself never deviates from its path through space. But the observer is standing on earth and gets fooled by the planet’s rotation. In other words, observers arrive with their own baggage and introduce their own flaw in the equation by believing what they see.

So blog readers ye be warned! Not all who wander are lost. Not all who seem to deviate, do.
