BROWNIAN MOTION RIDE - Audiovisual Poem - MPC TIM V1

What’s all the commotion About this promotion On the brand new Brownian Motion Ride? Early reservations For this new sensation Based on calculations by Mr. Einstein? I’ve heard they first seat you Then proceed to shrink you To a very minuscule particle size. They then put you all in A small speck of pollen And watch you all randomly jiggle inside. How horrid to fathom The onslaught of atoms Bombarding you violently from every side, With nowhere to hide As the coaster collides With the atoms, all zipping around left and right! I’m sure Robert Brown Would have flipped if he found Children bouncing around in such terrible ride. With bitter emotion, I deplore the notion Of this brand new Brownian Motion Ride! ----------------------------------------- This poem is a fictional account of a fantastical theme park ride based on the physical phenomenon of brownian motion, discovered by Robert Brown and explained by Albert Einstein. Mr. Pendlum's Compendium-The Illustrated Multiverse contains poems inspired by multiple fields and disciplines, such as mythology, philosophy, astrophysics, and literature, and presents complex topics, such as the Doppler Effect, cymatics, and quantum physics in a fantastical and enjoyable way while also touching on important social themes and issues and presenting profound philosophical views and perspectives.

GALILEO GALILEI - Audiovisual Poem - MPC TIM V1

I'm certain that you've heard some people say a certain name,  And if you've ever said it then you know it's fun to say.  But do you know the story of the man behind the name?  This brilliant man whose name was Galileo Galilei Scientist, mathematician, and astronomer by trade,  Inventor too and engineer was Mr. Galilei.  Such genius and ambition this Italian man displayed;  It's not much of a mystery why he quickly rose to fame. So many great discoveries and clever things he made;  He improved upon the telescope to look out into space.  Four giant moons near Jupiter he found, and even they,  Known as the Galilean moons, now share his charming name. Europa, Io, Callisto, and Ganymede were they;  These moons, with very ancient names of Zeus's many flames,  Were huge in size, but bigger was the impact that they made,  For they would shape the course of history for Galilei. These were the first of objects to be ever found in space  That orbited another planet in a distant place;  These were the moons that Galileo found that fateful day  By looking through a special telescope that he had made. "At last," he thought, "this here is proof that surely lets me claim,  Not everything revolves around the earth, in fact I'll state:  The earth revolves around the sun and not the other way!"  But almost everybody else had something else to say: "How ludicrous, preposterous, and utterly insane!  Some other guy Copernicus I think once said the same!  Take back your bold beliefs, your mad remarks, and silly claims,  Or those of us in charge will firmly put you in your place!" But his ideas changed the world, and those that were afraid  Locked Galileo in his house, and there they made him stay,  But Galileo wrote a book so critically acclaimed  That made it sure his legacy and name would never fade. For now we know how true they were, the many things he claimed;  The earth revolves around the sun and not the other way.  And now you know the story of the man behind the name,  This brilliant man whose name was Galileo Galilei. _______________________________ This poem tells the story of the brilliant scientist and polymath, Galileo Galilei. It recounts his many incredible achievements and tells of his fight for progress against authority and ignorance.

THE DOPPLER EFFECT - Audiovisual Poem - MPC TIM V1

Have you ever heard the tell-tale sound Of a distant ice cream truck, And you run outside with your crumpled bills As you thank your precious luck? You can hear that one familiar tune That you’ve heard so many times, And you know the truck’s approaching you, For the pitch is bending high. You take your prize with the gumball face, And the driver turns to go; Now the truck begins to drive away, And the pitch starts bending low. And the farther and farther down the road The truck so quickly goes, The lower and lower and lower than low The song’s pitch seems to go. What is the cause of this warping sound, This enigmatic moan? What secrets lie in its bending howl? I really want to know! “What is this sound, oh ice cream truck? Are you tired of your load? Do you curse your fate forever stuck On a long and dreary road?" And to my great surprise, The ice cream truck replies: “Well, the truth of it is much profound, But it’s not what you’d expect; This bending pitch and warping sound Is called the Doppler effect! As I drive along, approaching you, While on the curb you wait; The joyful sound of my catchy tune Ripples towards you in waves. With my movement I give every wave A helpful, forward push; Each wave has a shorter path to take, So they reach you squashed and smooshed. As the waves pile up, the frequency Appears to rise and rise, And frequency is pitch, you see, So the pitch appears to climb. The opposite of this is true, And as I drive away, Each wave takes longer to get to you, So the pitch bends down and fades…" The truck, so smart and wise, Continues the reply: “This effect that Mr. Doppler found Works for any kind of wave; Radio, water, light, or sound, It happens all the same. Essentially, this Doppler Effect Is a trusty speed radar; Police even use it to detect The speed of motor cars. It’s also used in medicine For measuring blood flow; It can uncover evidence Of heart defects unknown. But even stranger is its use In the field of astronomy; It helps astronomers deduce The movement of galaxies. It’s been well used to supplement And enrich our understanding; According to the Doppler effect The universe is expanding!" ----------------------------------------- In this quirky poem, a smart ice cream truck explains the Doppler effect, the phenomenon that seems to warp the sound of police sirens and ice cream truck songs as they pass by!

THE ZERO UNIVERSE - Audiovisual Poem - MPC TIM V1

In the beginning there was Zero, And Zero was all there was; Zero never did much, For nothing never does. But then one fateful moment Zero had a thought; Zero started thinking Of all that it was not. Then Zero started visualizing All that it could be, And soon it came to realize It could be anything. Zero could potentially be 2 plus 8 plus 3, As long as it was sure to add Negative 13. It could be 30 divided by 5 Then multiplied by 9, If it also negatively added 12 times 4.5. It could even be i times pi Then e to the power of that; As long as 1 was added too, Zero was still intact. But these kinds of equations Needed some chronology; Calculations require time, So time came into being. Now Zero could express itself With separate entities, A daunting infinite amount Of possibilities. But then an unexpected thing Soon began to occur; These new and separate entities Started to observe. First they became aware of themselves, Then they looked out far, And then they all began to notice Other equation parts. 9 saw 30 divided by 5; 3 noticed 4.5. e discovered 8 plus 3; 1 saw i times pi. They observed each other curiously And tried to do the math. What did these random numbers mean? They craved to understand. Only Zero knows the answer To the equation in its head: It always has and always will be Zero in the end! _______________________________ The Zero Universe is Poem #1 from the illustrated poetry book, Mr. Pendlum's Compendium-The Illustrated Multiverse Vol. 1, written, illustrated, and produced by Syneverse.

CHLADNI PATTERNS - Audiovisual Poem - MPC TIM V1

Little grains of sand Frolic all around, Ordered to assemble By harmonic waves of sound. “Little grains, attention! Assemble properly! Stand now in formation, And compose some geometry!" Those strong and standing waves Pulse and oscillate, Pushing all the grains aside As they resonate. And so the little grains Tremble and vibrate, Forming lovely figures On a metal Chladni plate. They find their antinodes Where they can safely stay, Away from all the pushing And the shoving of the waves. But as the pulsing waves Change their frequency, The shaky grains must relocate And change their geometry. What act of sound and sand! What show of resonance! What dazzling display it is, This rare cymatic dance! ----------------------------------------- This poem is a fantastical and fun description of cymatics: the way in which sound and vibration can create different geometric patterns!

RENÉ DESCARTES - Audiovisual Poem - MPC TIM V1

Some time ago there lived a guy that I think you should know; Philosopher and clever mathematician, he was both. His first name was René, though you can call him by Descartes, This clever man who turned thinking into a form of art. So many questions bubbled every day inside his head; So many deep and daring thoughts kept him awake in bed. “How can we know that we exist? How can we trust our eyes, If when we sleep and dream of things they seem real in our minds?" “Could we be living in a dream? Is any of this real? Can we be sure of anything we see or touch or feel? There must be something in this world that I can trust for sure; There must exist at least one thought I know is true and pure!” “But wait, that’s it!” He realized as he thought about this thought; The fact that he was thinking was this truth that he had sought. “I must exist, I must be real because, if I was not, I don’t think I’d be sitting here thinking of all these thoughts!" “If there is one thing in this world I know for sure, it’s this: The fact that I am thinking also means I must exist! So here I give my greatest thought, my idea so grand: Cogito, ergo sum, or I think, therefore I am! ” ----------------------------------------- This poem tells the story of René Descartes, the genius philosopher and polymath, and explores the philosophy behind his most well-known phrase: "I think, therefore I am".
