When and why I decided to study physics?

I often remember Dubravka Janda, my professor of art, logic and philosophy in XIV gymansium "25. Maj".
She inspired me to study physics with her presentation of the problem of Subject and Object. Moreover, I am aware now that she was the first one discovering to me the beauty of the selfsimilarity. One of her first lectures is so vivid in my memory: the art (architecture) of the suburban areas where she compared the aero-photos of slams surrounding metropolis with the pictures of cancer cells.
She past away in 1992.

 




 


Jean Souletie taught me about glasses and concepts of disorder. He introduced the world of universalities to me. But, first of all he was my great FRIEND.
He past away in 2002.

 




 


Willam Blake wrote the verses which only in four lines express the essence of my feelings, something I might call - my universal being.

 


To see a world in a grain of sand
and a heaven in a wild flower.
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
and eternity in an hour.


(opening stanza of Auguries of Innocence)

In 1992 Darko, my husband, found another William Blake's verses which became my credo:

 


I must create a System or be enslaved by another Man's;
I will not Reason and Compare;
My bussines is to create.


Jerusalem, plate 10, line 20
