Re: The Open University
The thing that always held me back from studying was that I hated maths at school. A few years ago, I was looking into studying through the OU and saw they had a maths course that would bring me up to speed so registered for it. It was really really easy.. Instead of the more esoteric way maths was communicated at school, which lead me watch the seagulls outside, it was in English. Whether it would be enough for a physics course, I don't know, but I was looking into cosmology..

You are massively overthinking it. If you want to lean about those areas of physics and the maths is stopping you then you are doing it wrong. Treat it like history and read about them from the very beginning.

As I said before there's a thousand years of stuff before what's happening now. By the time you get to the parts you need maths for you'll have either picked the gist of it up or be able to follow it.

Trying to learn about this stuff outside of it's historical context and outside of it relationships to other sciences is hard. What you are hoping to do is like trying to learn to drive by reading the car's workshop manual.

Is there a course in ' I'm coming for you'..?

Have you seen Stranger things happen?

Perhaps.

If it's just to exercise your brain, this site has loads of mini-courses that are either free or charge a nominal amount if you want a certificate.

It wouldn't be for career reasons. I'm just bored and not exercising my brain at the moment. I just think it might be interesting and do me some good.

Oxsnore, if only Quantum Mechanics was as simple as you put it, Niels Bohr must be quaking in his grave?

Poor judgement perhaps, I'm the same with tattoos. Very short interviews, spend more time inventing feedback.

Re: The Open University
What are your motivations...promotion, more money, changing direction or just knowing more stuff. If any of the first three I'd just put the equivalent effort into the job as the payback will be much greater. Everyone has a degree these days.

Poor judgement.
Undertaking an OU degree is no easy option, and it says something about an individual's character and capacity for hard work, planning and time management skills.
The OU graduate will have completed a course of study more up to date than most conventional unis.

My first degree was with OU my Masters was parttime with a redbrick uni and the OU was streets better.

OU graduates tend to be older, wiser and in possession of life skills experience greater than those recruited straight from a university after school.

Mind you this may frighten some employers

You still use a bin?

How very quaint.

Re: The Open University
So - take it as far as you can understand it and leave the rest to some "god".

Walk away from it for a while and then go back to it. "God's" domain will have shrunk as your subconscious mind will have been working on the problem.

You may have to iterate the process more than a few times. You may also have to abandon, at times, all that you KNOW is right in classical physics to reach an answer, but that is what science is all about.
