Quantum & Socks

If you are interested in Quantum Theory

and wear socks then this link is for you.

Did Einstein wear socks?

Or is that just an Urban Myth?

Heisenberg may have worn them.

Philosophers have long wondered why socks have this habit of getting lost, and why humans always end up with large collections of unmatched odd socks.


One school of thought says that socks are very antisocial creatures, and have a deep sense of rivalry. In particular, two socks of the same design have feelings of loathing towards each other and hence it is nearly impossible to pair them (e.g. a blue sock will usually be found nestling up to a black one, rather than its fellow blue sock)

On the other hand, quantum theorists explain it all by a generalized exclusion principle - it is impossible for two socks to be in the same state, and when it is in danger of happening, one of the socks has to vanish.


Indeed the Uncertainty Principle (Heisenberg may have thought of this) also comes in - the only time you know where a sock is, is when you are wearing it, and hence unable to be sure exactly how fast it is moving.


The moment you stop moving and look at your sock, it then starts falling to pieces, changing color, or otherwise becoming indeterminate. (Some mothers may recognize this in socks worn by their adolescent sons)

Either way, socks may possess Color and Strangeness, but they seem to lack Charm.
