    Anyone interested in Physics, specifically quantum mechanics

    Post by Jon on 2014-07-27, 21:32

    Well I was reading about this on my holiday from a book I took out from the library because I'm a really interesting person like that. What I read absolutely blew my mind and on the off-chance that there's anyone here that would take an interest, I found this video which nicely summarizes it.



    Basically, the way that reality behaves depends upon whether or not it's being observed. It's almost as if it has a consciousness. Surely it has to, to have an awareness of whether or not it is being observed? That, or it's your consciousness that actually creates the matter and without which it can not exist. But this would suggest that if something wasn't being somehow observed or recorded, then it would cease to exist until it began to be observed again.

    Which naturally makes me think of what happens when something isn't being observed. An experiment, by definition must have an experimenter, so, by extension: an observer. Thus determining the outcome of the experiment. If there was no experimenter observing the experiment, then the outcome could be entirely different...  

    This is seriously fucking with my brain.

    Lol i've actually just started to read a book about it. (ill snap you) What also blew my mind is that if you have two linked particles and you observe one of the two particles the outcome of the other particle will chance instantaneously: this means without any light-speed lagg. So if both of the particles were both on the other sides of the galaxy they respond to each other instantaneously aswel

    The book i'm reading is about the observer: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biocentric_universe

    I'm a little sceptic about the conclusions but he explains the way it works pretty well

    I've heard about that. I think it's called entanglement? I know remarkably little about it except for the fact that observing one will change the behavior of the other, as you've said. I'll read about this some time. It's hard to think what would lead physicists to believe that such particles exist.

    tl;dr but yeah I like physics in general Smile

    what was newtons laws again i forgot Sad

    I. Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it.

    II. The relationship between an object's mass m, its acceleration a, and the applied force F is F = ma.

    III. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

    You should keep in mind that this is a quantum world. You can't apply this in the real world we are living in now, as quantum worlds is about chances of things happening. If you do this on a bigger scale these chances are negligible

    how do you like physics but not know Newtonian laws lol. That's like liking math but not knowing how to add and subtract.

    And @Jon, it's a really cool concept I remember going over it earlier in high school, my teacher showed us this video and it's pretty awesome/funny.

    Well Qm is clearly violating the first law Wink
