Rem Koolhaas vs Quantum Theory

 

REM KOOLHAAS (S, M, L, XL)

 

QUANTUM THEORY (subatomic)

“If there is to be a ‘new urbanism’ it will not be based on the twin fantasies of order and omnipotence; it will be the staging of uncertainty; it will no longer be concerned with the arrangement of more or less permanent objects but with the irrigation of territories with potential; it will no longer aim for a stable configuration but for the creation of enabling fields that accommodate processes that refuse to be crystallized into definitive form; it will no longer be about meticulous definition, the imposition of limits, but about expanding notions, denying boundaries, not about separating and identifying entities, but about discovering unnameable hybrids; it will no longer be obsessed with the city but with the manipulation of infrastructure for endless intensifications and diversifications, shortcuts and redistributions – the reinvention of psychological space.” The subatomic world is made up of possibilities and tendencies, not of physical certainties. Neither simply particles nor simply waves, the building blocks of our universe can only be described as hybrid particle~waves… They operate inpotentiality fields whose processes are dynamically ruled by the Uncertainty Principle… Quantum particles randomly break the boundaries of spacetime… They are not fixed, dead matter, but responsive units that only ‘decide’ which aspect to show us at the instant we look at them… Quantum theory reconnects the world and finally recombines objectivity and subjectivity, mind and matter, into one model of reality, clashing with all that classical thought believed the world to be. Quantum theory forces the question: does reality exist outside our psychological space?
