My Poetry 1962-1974

I started writing poetry when I attended Delbrook High School in North Vancouver in 1962-3. My English-40 teachers, whose name I cannot recall, encouraged it. At the same time, I frequented the Inquisition Coffee House on Seymour Street in Vancouver, B.C. and run by Howie Bateman. There I met a poet, whose name has gone too, and he was a great motivator. He read my poems and commented. He wrote the following: “One day I will take my cobwebs down and have them drycleaned” There is a section with some of my HS poems, immature of course, but clearly, I am trying out styles and learning from Romantic lyricists, E. E. Cummings, Robert Service, and others. I wrote three poems while I was working in a logging camp for summer jobs in 1963-4. I wrote only a few poems from ’65 to 71, when I got my PhD. I will also give two poems by my friend called Nela. I recall her last name as Leya, but it could...

Knowing

By Bryan Sanctuary October 1967   Have you felt the softness,    And touched it with your lips? Have you seen the blackness,  Slip through your fingertips? Have you seen the morning dew    In the corner of a flower? And have you felt a filling warmth    In any special hour?   I felt the softest touch indeed    When I kissed your sanguine lips. I felt your lovely raven hair    Run through my fingertips. I saw a tear within your eye    One very special hour, When we first knew our love was pure.    And I gave you a single...

Memories of May

ByBryan Sanctuary 1967 Sometimes the days are carefree      When springtime fills the air,And time stands still in blue and green      While dappled shades dance everywhereTo liven up the scene. Silent boats slip slowly by      Across the hazy blue,As yellow sand wash softly flat      And clear away the clueWhere two young people sat. In the timeless flood and ebb,      That leave the two unheeded,A silent word, a lingered stare      Is all the heart had needed,To seal the memory...

A. Logically Non-locality makes no sense.

For many years now (since 2006) I have been studying spin 1/2 that has structure. People think the idea is crazy because spin is firmly established by the Dirac Equation. Recently I found that the two dimensional structured spin I have been advocating is just as firmly based in its own Dirac equation with a different algebra. I will come back to that later. Non-locality, going back to Isaac Newton, has always been unacceptable, at least until modern times. Instantaneous action-at-a-distance is physically unpalatable and always belies a deeper theory. So why does almost every physicist believe in it? To be clear, I do not suggest that Bell’s Theorem is wrong.  Bell gave a way of distinguishing classical from quantum correlation, and although there are dissenters, they are few. According to quantum mechanics, to agree with the 2√2 violation of Bell’s Inequalities, the separated spins must remain entangled, and therefore have non-local correlations. No one can explain how particles remain entangled after they have separated. The point is, I cannot accept that...
