Van Gogh and the quantum paintings

 

One of the most stubborn problems in physics today is the fact that our two best theories to explain the Universe - general relativity and quantum mechanics - function perfectly well on their own, but as soon as you try to combine them, the maths just doesn’t work out.

No one so far managed to unite the two theories, not even the great Albert Einstein.

Only one person long ago found in his way the perfect synthesis: Vincent Van Gogh.

With his paintings he managed to capture the essence of the universe.

If you see one small detail it's the quantum chaos, a mix of dramatic and disordered brush strokes. But when you see the full picture everything works wonderfully like in the general relativity.
