The Fundamental Knowability of Nature

It’s a big title for a painting.  Of course, it has a story…based in quantum physics (of which I know very little.)  The fundamental knowability of nature explains, as an example, that the more precisely you locate the position of an atom, the more unlikely it will be that you can tell the speed at which it is traveling.  You can’t know both at once.  Remarkable.  I translated that idea into a visual image that correlates this blackbird’s place in man’s world.  Oh wait, does that work?
