Symphony of Science – the Quantum World!


mp3: A musical investigation into the nature of atoms and subatomic particles, the jiggly things that make up everything we see. Featuring Morgan Freeman, Stephen Hawking, Michio Kaku, Brian Cox, Richard Feynman, and Frank Close.

“The Quantum World” is the eleventh installment in the ongoing Symphony of Science music video series. Materials used in the creation of this video are from: for downloads & more videos!

Richard Feynman – Fun to Imagine
BBC Visions of the Future – the Quantum Revolution
Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman
Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking
Brian Cox TED Talk
BBC What Time is it
BBC Wonders of the Universe
BBC Horizon – What Is Reality

Special thanks to everybody who’s donated to keep the project alive and to those who helped track down the materials used in this video.

*Please note that dark matter and dark energy are considered to make up a majority of the universe, in addition to the 12 particles and 4 forces.


[Morgan Freeman]
So, what are we really made of?
Dig deep inside the atom
and you’ll find tiny particles
Held together by invisible forces

Everything is made up
Of tiny packets of energy
Born in cosmic furnaces

[Frank Close]
The atoms that we’re made of have
Negatively charged electrons
Whirling around a big bulky nucleus

[Michio Kaku]
The Quantum Theory
Offers a very different explanation
Of our world

[Brian Cox]
The universe is made of
Twelve particles of matter
Four forces of nature

That’s a wonderful and significant story

[Richard Feynman]
Suppose that little things
Behaved very differently
Than anything big

Nothing’s really as it seems
It’s so wonderfully different
Than anything big

The world is a dynamic mess
Of jiggling things
It’s hard to believe

The quantum theory
Is so strange and bizarre
Even Einstein couldn’t get his head around it

In the quantum world
The world of particles
Nothing is certain
It’s a world of probabilities


It’s very hard to imagine
All the crazy things
That things really are like

Electrons act like waves
No they don’t exactly
They act like particles
No they don’t exactly

[Stephen Hawking]
We need a theory of everything
Which is still just beyond our grasp
We need a theory of everything, perhaps
The ultimate triumph of science


I gotta stop somewhere
I’ll leave you something to imagine

  1. It's crazy how just 14 years ago this was a whole new thing that everyone found fascinating and unexplainable but now it's taught in schools with the average science student knowing this.

  2. i keep coming back to this… 12 years now wow. there’s just something about it, it’s about the quantum theory of course but as someone who flunked straight out of science lol, it’s the imagination bit that gets me every time. our knowledge in science is growing so fast, exponentially it seems, in a world where wars and disasters keep striking our knowledge keeps expanding too in the most extraordinary ways. have we even touched the tip of the ice berg yet? how much more are we going to discover/create? it’s just as exciting as it is daunting.

  3. Why has nobody combined ai generated motions functions and the physical psychology of our race (as humans mind you) VR tech quantum physics realities the studies of the multiverse ie the internet bineural beats and sounds all recorded history from the Vatican the sandkrits and vedas absolutely all dinominations of Judaism Christianity catholicism all religions all fantasy and sci-fi concepts art lessons teachings comic books anime sciences of all walks of life every kind of life lessons ever recorded MRI machines cat scans smart tv smart phones all video games with respective consoles and mods all songs all movies all documentaries mathematics of the basic to the quantum and 3d printing and all military info from the united resistance against the chains of ignorance and self destructive nature of our prismatic existence we need to change! And we have to pull out all stops and connect to something much bigger than ourselves
