- n. A wave-particle; an entity which simultaneously has the properties of a wave and a participle.
Some physicists believe that light is neither a wave nor a particle, but rather a so-called wavicle—an idea that is virtually impossible to imagine.
This event catalyzed a year-long quest to develop an observer/participant art form reflecting the integration of time (particle) and space (wave) into the living breathing presence of a new archetype, the "wavicle" reflecting Tambellini's space/time experiments in art & physics at MIT, anticipating the hyperdimensional model based on the torsion effect of the rotation of the planets and their satellites arising from behind the Iron Curtain.
The dynamic stillness between particle and wave is where we confront the wavicle: an awareness of the imperceptibility of the power of the symbol delivering a new aesthetic to the avant-garde.
Mostly they've tried to handle the 'beam-tapping' problem in deepspace communications by avoiding it … defeating it at sending and receiving ends with 'unbreakable' codes, hypercoherent wavicle packets, all that silliness.
If there is an elementary particle, or wavicle, of thought, a faster-than-light one like the tachyon might be a good candidate for the honor.
