Illustration: Harris et al., PRL (2013) Have We Been Interpreting Quantum Mechanics Wrong This Whole Time? It is good to work with two or three texts when learning QM. The Quantum enthusiasts, by contrast, prefer a dancing Shiva, a principle of cosmic play. 5. This is a coherent explanation for the universe as we perceive it that has its own self-consistent internal logic, claiming that the entire universe is the seamless manifestation of a singular indivisible field.

But for some strange reason, he considered quantum processes in the human brain to be in a different category (evidently not governed by the quantum principles of wave-particle duality?) so this is where he drew the line. It need only be statistically determined and capable of recording the irreversible information about an interaction. Einstein's explanation of the photoelectric effect was very radical. Schwartz, a neuroscientist and professor of psychiatry from University of California, described this conclusion emerging from the Copenhagen Interpretation: In summary, quantum mechanics’ all conventional interpretations depend on the existence of a perceiving being. 10 Amit Goswami expanded on this insight: Suppose we ask, Is the moon there when we are not looking at it?

These quantum entities are what you and I are made of, not to mention the rocks, the trees and the stars. Though he reads every email, he regrets that he is not able to personally respond to all of them. © Copyright 2014. [1] For the purpose of this article, the terms “quantum physics,” “quantum theory” and “quantum mechanics” are interchangeable. [2] This is reminiscent of the alchemists, who in writing about Mercurius, the lapis, the philosopher’s stone (all different ways of describing their “God-image”), in Jung’s words “did not know what they were writing about.” [3] Stapp, Mindful Universe: Quantum Mechanics and the Participating Observer, p. 4. [5] To quote Walter Heitler, author of a standard textbook on the light/matter interaction, “The separation of the world into an ‘objective outside reality’ and ‘us,’ the self-conscious onlookers, can no longer be maintained.

Frisch, What Little I Remember (1979), 95. You cannot rest your feet where there are no rungs. Their persistent warfare had been one long fraud, a superb example of classical propaganda.… If we try to regard the wave and particle as two distinct entities, we must think of them not as implacable feudists but as professional wrestlers putting on a show. Bohr went wrong with his classical theory of the atom in 1917 or so. Matter fundamentally is not made of particle OR waves; it consists of a form of matter that, roughly speaking, is both particle AND wave; and this is true both for ordinary matter like protons and electrons, and for radiative matter like light.

The insert on page 74 extends the decoherence of different worlds to the mental states of the observer, who can be both happy and sad about the fall of a playing card without the happy or the sad person being aware of the other. This illusion is fabricated within our brain and nervous system in such a way that a physical world appears to be really there outside of us, when in fact its real basis is a neurologically generated holographic pattern that is witnessed by consciousness in such a way as to trick us into seeing it as a solid external material world of physical objects.

Those things simply are not there in quantum mechanics,” Carroll says. However, the actual number of times that seven appears matches probability better as the number of rolls increases. Matter had completely departed from the realm of physics and was headed in the direction of metaphysics. 4 The physicist Richard Feynman described this interesting fact about sub-atomic particles and light: Now we know how the electrons and light behave. To quote the great Islamic scholar and mystic Henry Corbin, “at every moment the world puts on a ‘new creation,’ which veils our consciousness because we do not perceive the incessant renewal.” [45] Corbin continues, “In the realm of the manifest, there is only a succession of likes from instant to instant.” [46] The cosmos is a recurrent and recurring creation, refreshing itself at each and every moment.

Freeman Dyson Anybody who's not bothered by Bell's theorem has to have rocks in his head. It was only when they were measured at the end of the journey that their wave-like or particle-like behavior was brought into existence," said Truscott. "It proves that measurement is everything. As if coming full circle, quantum physics is returning physics to its roots in metaphysics, which is to say that quantum physics is becoming a spiritual path.

QM is a theory that describes particles – hence the word “mechanics”. The two views are complementary, neither one by itself telling the whole story. Contexts of type 2 ("Measurement Contexts"):[ 9 ] Carrying out a "measurement" of an observable B on a system in a state Scientists couldn't really understand why low-frequency high-intensity light would not cause electrons to be emitted, while higher-frequency low-intensity light would. This discovery became the basis of all twentieth-century research in physics and has almost entirely conditioned its development ever since.

So began, as Planck recalled, "a few weeks of the most strenuous work of my life." But it was Planck's law of radiation that yielded the first exact determination - independent of other assumptions - of the absolute magnitudes of atoms. In the context of Schrödinger's wave mechanics, the probability of finding a particle at a given location is determined by the amplitude (height) of the wave at that location. Both "particles" and "waves" are merely two ways in which we naively interpret quantum fields.

Early quantum theory was profoundly reconceived in the mid-1920s. The information that remains today, in their view, has always been here. Particles are just schaumkommen (appearances). I wonder if I am becoming addicted; I can’t get enough of quantum physics, which has captured─and simultaneously liberated─my imagination beyond belief. Pool, Robert, "Score One More for the Spooks," Discover, 18, (January 1998): p. 53. * Dr. It is easier to report on Bohr's views than to justify them.
