The ThreeBody Problem
all she could see were the stars of a cold night in 1969.
and leaving the Earth and the Solar System, just like Asimov once described.13 What would you think then?”
Why would the path of the sun through the world of Three Body be devoid of regularity and pattern? Whether a planet’s orbit is more circular or more elliptical, its motion around its sun must be periodic. Total irregularity in planetary motion is impossible.…
Look down my throat and you can see out my ass.
“Everyone is afraid of something. The enemy must be, too. The more powerful they are, the more they have to lose to their fears.”
myopic and presbyopic,
He’s the one who brought me here, but he still doesn’t trust me,
But then he remembered how wildly anachronistic historical references could be in the world of Three Body and decided the effort wasn’t worth it.
It’s just like if you get really close to a picture in the newspaper and everything turns into little dots.”
“No, emptiness is not nothingness. Emptiness is a type of existence. You must use this existential emptiness to fill yourself.”
The physics principles behind the three-body problem28 are very simple.
Although the method is simple, it shows how, mathematically, random brute force can overcome precise logic.
It’s a numerical approach that uses quantity to derive quality.
Some years ago, Richard Montgomery of UCSC and Alain Chenciner of Université Paris Diderot discovered another stable, periodic solution to the three-body problem.
“Oh, that’s not very surprising. In most regions of the Milky Way, the distribution of stars is fairly even. It’s the result of star clusters acting under the influence of gravity. The distance between most stars is between three and six light-years.”
Ye finally had her unshakable ideal: to bring superior civilization from elsewhere in the universe into the human world.
Who gave humans such high honors? No, humans do not need saving. They’re already living much better than they deserve.” “We heard

“Of course that’s impossible. The etching of micro integrated circuits can only occur at the macro scale, and only on a macroscopic two-dimensional plane. Thus, we must unfold a proton into two dimensions.”
“After the two sophons arrive on Earth, their first mission is to locate the high-energy particle accelerators used by humans for physics research and hide within them.
A sophon can take the place of a target particle and accept the collision. Because they’re highly intelligent, they can precisely determine through the quantum sensing formation the paths that the accelerated particles will follow within a very short period of time and move to the appropriate location. Thus, the likelihood that a sophon will be struck will be billions of times greater than the actual target particle. After a sophon is struck, it can deliberately give out wrong and chaotic results.
