Awesome Ted Talk Jason. It was really engaging, and the whiteboard made it really easy to follow your thought. One thing you didn’t bring up is the concept of fields, and how virtual particles come out of them, but I think it still made a lot of sense, and fields would have been too confusing. The way you presented it made a lot of sense, and got the concept of how they can only exist in a planck instant, and why that is. Overall really well done, and I liked that you decided to not shove a bunch of information at us, and go through the concepts of it rather that just a bunch of numbers.
One question I had was about the different virtual particles and how they caused the strong force. Because gluons have no charge, how would it come into existence in pairs? I always thought that only quarks and leptons could come in and out existence, and not bosons.

Hey Nathan, thanks for commenting. As for Gluons, I too have absolutely no idea about their “pairing” nature. When I initially delved into this topic, I believed that only electrons had virtual versions, since it was used in the example given to me. After researching its many manifestations, I have come to realize that virtual particles take up many forms. This would include Bosons, Leptons, Quarks, Photons, and many others. For example, virtual particles are believed to play a part in electromagnetic induction by creating disturbances in the electromagnetic field (basically particles, or rather, virtual ones).
Thanks for commenting,

Amazing Ted Talk Jason. You did an amazing job at simplifying this very complicated topic to an understandable level. The whiteboard made it very easy to follow your thoughts, especially when you were talking about the electron’s speed over time. I really like how you presented the concept of your topic rather than the facts and numbers. It made it very easy to follow your talk. Overall, you presentation was amazing and it taught me a lot. I didn’t know that Planck time allowed the laws of physics to break down within it. I am curious as to how possible it would be for humans to utilize the Planck constant in our experiments and research.

That talk was very well done. You were very knowledgeable about your topic, and it kind of shows. The way you used the white board was also very informative and helped clarify a few hard to understand concepts. Great job for taking on such a hard concept. One thing though, what I learnt about the Heisenberg uncertainty principle was that you can never know both the velocity and the position of an object. You explained it as “you can never know what happens in planck time” (correct me if I’m wrong), which I guess was true, but maybe you could have explained the fundamental equation behind that. This also explains for the existance of virtual particles, because if you think that a particle is in a certain space, like a cup, then you must not know its velocity, so technically it could be very fast and pop out of existance. Or if you know a particle’s velocity, then you don’t know its position, and so it could be anywhere. Finally, last thing is that for relativity, it is not just time that slows, as you said, but also distance shortens, which I believe you didn’t mention. Again, correct me if I am wrong on these.
Overall, it was a very challenging topic, and your delivery had caught our attention well and was very easy to understand. That is a big task, and you did it!

You caught me! Great points stated in your comment, and they are true. On the note of the Uncertainty Principal, I found it extremely hard to grasp this idea at first, let alone explain it in a way relevant to my topic. It made sense for me to explain a shortened summary by the person who I was initially inspired by to make this talk. You are absolutely right, I could have gone the extra mile and elaborate on this concept, but I made the decision not to for the sake of simplicity. I think we can both agree that the Uncertainty Principal deserves its own video! As for length contraction, I overestimated the length of my video and decided to cut it, since it did not help explain the creation of virtual particles. When I first completed my script, I was concerned that it was too long, and confusing to understand. Thanks for your comment, but I was hoping no one would notice the few unexplained ideologies!
pleasure reaching out to you,

Amazing talk fam. I really like your hook and how you transitioned to the idea of creating something from nothing. You whiteboard style was something unique and made your talk more interesting to watch. I didn’t know that you had an interest in physics, which leads me to my question; in your opinion why did you choose this topic and what do find to be the most interesting aspect of physics? Do you see your self having a career intros field? What do you thing is the hardest obstacle to overcome when learning about a topic like this? And finally, where do you see the need for physics around us today?
Once again, great job man.

Awesome talk Jason! It was really engaging, especially with your use of a whiteboard to illustrate points. You made a difficult topic simple enough for even me to understand, and represented it in a way that was easy to digest. I like how you showed the “infinity chocolate bar” video in the end, ruthlessly debunked it, and how seamlessly it transitioned into your topic. A suggestion is to make the whiteboard bits at the bottom slightly bigger, as moving attention from the speaker to the demonstration all the time is distracting. Question though; how can this science be applied into, or how do those inventions work? An example could be MRIs, which rely on nuclear magnetic imaging if I recall correctly. All in all, great presentation!
