MA Philosophy; MSc Astrophysics

PHILOSOPHY  and ASTROPHYSICS have their own posts on this site. SOHO FOUNDRY has its own site.

1st December 2016 Received unconditional offer of MSc by Research in `Foundations of Quantum Mechanics’ at York University, Mathematics and Quantum Technologies dept. Supervised by Prof. Paul Busch. This represents the first year of a PhD, and will enable me to transfer relatively easily to a PhD in a similar research area at, say, a good London university. I’m over the moon!  I’ve been working up to this for ~ 4 years. My academic life since September 2011 involved the following:

  • Birkbeck, University of London, MA philosophy, 2014 -5. Dissertation – Philosophy of quantum mechanics
  • Queen Mary, University of London, MSc astrophysics, 2012-3. Dissertation – Multiverse
  • Open University, 2015-7. Modules in quantum mechanics, relativity, maths and physics
  • Hertfordshire university, 2011. Placement, astrophysics

The research position commences October 2017, when I’ll have finished my current modules in quantum mechanics and relativity.

The research area, `Foundations of Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Communications’, relates directly to my dissertations in Philosophy (taught MA) The Measurement Problem in Quantum Mechanics' and Astrophysics (taught MSc) `A Multiverse Review with special reference to the Cosmological Constant’.

11th March 2016  West End Extra local newspaper today, Friday.Front page and page 2. This follows a meeting arranged by myself on behalf of Berwick Street Community Group and the reporter Alina Polianskaya, with Robin Scott of the Soho Dairy stall and SohoSt, at 8 Berwick Street, on Tuesday this week (see photo below).

A few days ago, many market traders were given sudden notice that their contracts are terminated on June 30th. The rental of the stall pitches will then be administered by a private contractor. There is no statement of the rents for the pitches after 30th June, and certainly no discussion currently with the existing stallholders. (Click on pics to enlarge).

This is very worrying for the traders on this historic market, and Berwick Street in general. It is further anonymous gentrification of Soho, with no discussion with the community.

24th September 2014    Meeting with Peter Large, Head of Legal & Democratic Affairs, Westminster council. Discussing the nomination of the proposed Soho Foundry site as an asset of community value. We would expect the council to support our application, but it could be opposed by the freeholders, Westminster Kingsway College. If registered successfully, the community would have up to 6 months to raise funds to purchase the site. It also has an entry on the land registry that it is nominated as an ACV (Asset of Community Value). My concern is that, should the Tories remain in power following next year’s general election, they may relax the planning regulations. Currently, the Peter Street site is educational planning use, and is of little interest to a commercial developer. If this restriction were relaxed, say to mixed use – for example, ground floor retail and private flats on the upper floors – a sale could be envisaged. I am trying to protect this site from possible redevelopment, which I believe is the ultimate intention of the freeholders. The college was originally built as a school in 1880 and has been an educational establishment continuously since then. We want to make the main college building into Soho Workshops, start-up short light industrial leases for local businesses and artisans, and the Schoolkeeper’s House into Soho Foundry, community art gallery, family cafe and outside event space.

Sent facebook messages to some chums asking for suggestions of journos they may know who could do a report on the anticipated problem of gaining a lease for the SOHO FOUNDRY from the reluctant freeholders. This is Westminster Kingsway Further Education College Corporation, a private company difficult to trace. They tried to sell the entire site in 2008 but were blocked by Westminster council on the grounds that it should be for public use and it is in a conservation area. Our planning application for a community arts centre/event space & cafe should be approved. Our entrance is entirely separate to the college, and we propose to share outside basement space not currently used. We would pay rent and rates, and provide a valuable community resource not currently available. The idea of using some space in the main college building as SOHO WORKSHOPS for start-up artisan style studios has been proposed. The fact that a public facility has been sold for profit and now being in private hands is not now available to the community for whom it was originally built, and is left derelict for 23 years, must be exposed.

No comment yet from Westminster planning dept. on SOHO FOUNDRY. The application for change of use to community art gallery/event space & cafe by BERWICK STREET COMMUNITY GROUP was validated (ie. accepted) on 22nd February. The process usually takes 2-3 months. Likewise, there has been no comment from the freeholders, Westminster Kingsway College.

Have just returned from a short break in Llanidloes, Powis, mid Wales. Goto SCRAPBOOK for pics. Llanidloes is a small town in the valleys, famous for its role in the Chartist riots of 1839 which occurred at what is now the Trewythen hotel on Great Oak Street.  This is currently closed and for sale. I stayed in Victoria Square opposite the hotel. The mountains are stunning, and I managed two long hikes with my chum Julian Stafford-Michael.

PHILOSOPHY


For the time being, this post will start at the date of my accepting the MA at Birbeck. Hence, the latest comment will be at the END of the post

21st May 2014  Got a place to study MA Philosophy at Birkbeck College, University of London starting October 2014. This complements my MSc in Astrophysics from Queen Mary, University of London last year.

Birkbeck College, University of London  QMUL logo

Birkbeck College, University of London

Queen Mary, University of London 

13th June 2015 First draft of my dissertation, “The Measurement Problem of Quantum Mechanics”.

22nd May 2014  Met with Dr. George Darby at 26 Russell Square, WC1. He has interests in metaphysics and philosophy of physics. We discussed possible topics for my MA dissertation at Birkbeck next year, and we discussed my MSc dissertation at Queen Mary, particularly those relating to quantum mechanics and philosophy, highlighting the Everett hypotheses.

 8th August 2014  Background reading. Many students on my upcoming MA Philosophy will have done a BA in philosophy. Students like myself without that formal academic background do the double module, ‘Introduction to Philosophy’. I am already considering topics for a dissertation. I want to nail down a topic before Christmas, because if I am to apply to Oxford for the prestigious MSt (Master of Studies) at Oxford (application deadline mid-January) I would want to quote the title and abstract. This course has only 4 places per year, and is the best in the world on philosophy of physics, and has something like 200 applicants per year! I corresponded with David Wallace at Balliol last year, and he encouraged me to apply.

I will probably choose quantum mechanics – indeterminacy, entanglement, consciousness…..

Provisional title:

Philosophy & Quantum Mechanics:

Metaphysical Indeterminacy and Consciousness

Unfortunately, Dr. George Darby , who I met in May, has left Birkbeck and has not been replaced by anyone specifically qualified in philosophy of physics. I also met Dr Robert Northcott on 17th July, and he believes there will be no problem of supervision within the Birkbeck philosophy department.

21 August 2015 Submitted my MA Philosophy dissertation, titled, “The Measurement Problem in Quantum Mechanics”. This was supervised by Dr. Robert Northcott, and is a major area within the Philosophy of Physics.

The abstract for this ~12,000 word paper is:

The measurement problem is fundamental as an insight to the quantum world. I shall cite thought experiments, as well as actual and suggested laboratory experiments, that illustrate the problem of the transition from a quantum system to the classical world by the process of decoherence, apparently only at the instant of measurement. The basic mathematical background that formalises this phenomenon is required to be stated throughout the paper in order to properly examine the abstract nature of what is going on, and I have referenced this at Measurement problem in QM. I shall cite some attempts to explain the measurement problem, and I shall argue for my two favoured views, which are the radically different hypotheses of Bohr’s decoherence and Everett’s Many Worlds, but it is my contention that we are missing something fundamental in our understanding of 20th Century physics.

Berwick Street Community Group (BSCG) is a voluntary group chaired by Mark Teverson who also started the Attlee Youth Project with the charity the Attlee Foundation, London E1, and the Foundry project for local artists in Shoreditch, London EC2. He also started and ran Soho Studios London W1 and did a MSc postgraduate degree in Astrophysics at Queen Mary University of London and now an MA in Philosophy at Birkbeck, University of London

The BSCG office is on Berwick Street in Soho, London W1.

The office address is:   9  Berwick Street, London W1F 0PJ   markteverson@berwickcommunity.co.uk

BSCG is a loose association of individuals that live and/or work in the area of Soho, and was formed in May 1996

Mark Teverson chairs the group

Activities have included:

Soho Community Pottery, A History of Soho (limited edition), Soho Arts Festival, Berwick Street – A Short Film. BSCG  avails itself to assist local groups, individuals and businesses to further the good of the area

Berwick Street runs from Oxford Street down to Peter Street (the proposed home of Soho Foundry). Berwick Street is home to Berwick Street market in the southern section of the street. It is open mon-sat     (pic. July 2011)

Letter to West End Extra 1/7/2011 by Mark Teverson  (Click mouse on pic)

BSCG is currently negotiating a change of planning use of a building in Soho with a view to starting an art gallery/event space for local projects, a need strangely absent in this area of London which contains so much cultural and community activity. This is Soho Foundry. Soho has always been a centre for innovation in many areas of human adventure

Apart from exhibiting fine art and sculpture, the aim is to also provide a small restaurant and communal space. To our knowledge, Soho has not had a jumble sale or community noticeboard in living memory! The Soho Festival every July, organised by the Soho Society, is the only community run project that remotely comes near. This project will assist in balancing the increasingly corporate bias of Soho of the last 25 years

  City Hall, Victoria St SW1 The home of the Westminster town planners

The gallery project will need to compete with other commercial bodies seeking possession of the building that BSCG is seeking to renovate. The plans for our application have been drawn by architect Ronald Cottee, and the submission to Westminster planning department was advised by Peter Baird of Planning Aid for London

CURRENT SITUATION ……The planning application for change of use was ‘validated’ by Westminster council planning department on 22nd February 2012. A decision usually takes a further 2-3 months. It may then be referred to a ‘full committee’. To inspect our application, goto Westminster planning applications, search the Soho Foundry postcode W1F 0HS or goto APPLICATION.

MARKET RESTAURANTS ‘MISS OUT’ (West End Extra 6th March) (letter sent 10th April 2012)

I read with interest your article on Berwick Street market’s increase in food stalls encroaching on the business of established restaurants. As chairperson of Berwick Street Community Group, I wrote to Westminster council on this matter in September last year. On receiving no response, I rang the office regarding these matters, and was told the market inspector would contact Mr Bernia at Bar du Marche to discuss his grievances. The inspector never visited.

There was a further matter regarding potholes outside his restaurant. After rain, these would fill with water and splash diners eating at tables outside. These two tables require high commercial rates, but were clearly unusable for these times. The simple task of filling the holes has not been achieved after 6 months, though council taxes have been charged.
The council’s wish to reinvigorate our dying market seems to require more care and attention!

Sincerely
Mark Teverson (Chair)

ATTLEE FOUNDATION


.

Mark Teverson started and ran the Attlee Foundation’s primary project (registered charity no. 1087259)

As project director, he founded and ran the Attlee Youth Project on Commercial Street, London E1 in March 1980
Disabled children from Tower Hamlets & Hackney
Local children. Mainly Bengali from Whitechapel
Affiliated with Toynbee Hall, 28 Commercial Street E1
Mark Teverson hosted the inauguration with Margaret Thatcher (the sitting prime minister) 11th July 1980
Staffing levels 6-12 co-workers. Large building + one acre site on the edge of City of London. The brief entailed much outreach work in the community for Mark & the key workers, particularly Noor, Sally and Peter

Project Director: Mark Teverson

Key workers: Sally Aitken, Noor, Doug Turnbull, Phil Burton, Peter Sutcliff ( the next project director)

Close links to local schools and special schools in Tower Hamlets and Hackney

  11th July 1980 A word in your ear.                                                                  (Pic via News of the World, 26th March 1989. Go to STUFF for lots of juicy associated material)

Inauguration by premier Margaret Thatcher. Mark Teverson (arrowed) and John Profumo (then chairman at Toynbee Hall) with a director of the Variety Club of Great Britain (Pic: all UK national dailies 12/7/1980 + local press)

Following the ‘inauguration’, the local press and the Evening Standard published a report that Jesus was alive and working with children in the Whitechapel community! I considered a political career commencing with standing as a councilor for Tower Hamlets.

John Profumo (1915 – 2006) was defence minister in the Macmillan Tory government in 1963 when the scandal in 1963 forced his resignation and contributed to their defeat by Wilson in the 1964 Labour victory. He immediately volunteered at Toynbee Hall to clean toilets. There is a bizarre link to the law lord Lord Longford, with whom Mark Teverson received comments on his book Devil Rides into Soho

A reporter rang a side business I had started with my then partner Sandra, Blondie Singing Telegrams. He wanted to do an article, so I met him in the Princess Alice near to Attlee. This was John Diamond, now a respected journalist (died 2001) married to Nigella Lawson. I only realised he was an ‘investigative journalist’ when I rang his office, which turned out to be the News of the World! He obviously found nothing sufficiently salacious!

Gilbert and George lived round the corner. I chaperoned a few of the kids to the artists’ studio. I took them to see the results of their photo shoot at the Whitechapel gallery                                             

.

The site is on Lolesworth Close, a cul-de-sac off Commercial Street E1, approx. 200 meters from Toynbee Hall towards Spitalfields Church. The street was originally called Flower and Dean Street. The name was bizarrely changed by Tower Hamlets council (with no consultation) around 1982. This may have been because one of the first Jack the Ripper murders occurred in some tenements originally on Flower & Dean St. at the entrance to the Attlee Project site.
