Hi Does anyone here know much about quantum physics? There was this movie a few yrs. back that suggested that in the theory of Quantum physics, that all things are possible. For example: The chairs that we sit on are only solid because we have been told that they are but in reality they are just a mass of molecules squshed together to look like a chair, the same with walls etc....So seemingly to the untrained eye you wouldn't think that you could fall to the floor sitting on a chair or walk thru a wall etc... anyway if everything is just atoms and particles etc...why aren't we just big masses of particles like bees flying around or dust flying around??? Would love to pick a scientists brain. Any scientist or physisist on this site?
The film "What the Bleep!?: Down the Rabbit Hole" is an excellant intro to Quantum Physics.
Yes that is the exact movie I was talking about!!!! That's why it would be interesting to pick the mind of a quantum physisist.
There is a huge supply of information on the internet that will help you get your feet wet. However, if you are not willing to invest a lot of your time and effort, you may be just wasting your time.
This might be a place to start:

Thank you Quillgrapher for all your info. I appreciate it. I have recently found a person who knows a great deal about quantum physics and am picking his brain. thanks
See how the mind works ,you put out a thought of what you'd like to learn and it comes forth
I loved What The Bleep. It really opened a world of possibilities to me as far as the way I thought about things.
I am currently reading: Dancing Wu Li Masters: An Overview of the New Physics by Gary Zukav.
A great book explaining quantum physics so a layman can understand!

on the religion forum I was describing what I thought was quantum physics...that the universe is accelerating and expanding in a spiral. Is that quantum or something else or combination of things...?

A scientific theory must be able to make predictions.Quantum mechanics by it's very nature and laws cannot make predictions. Therefore, can quantum mechanics be considered science?Or is it just experimental metaphysics?

The common idea in common physics is that reality is not there until we observe it there. Everything is in a superposition until observed and the waves collapse to make the object observational. My question is: We are...

When I studied chemistry years ago, I found topics about quantum physics really abstract & the maths made no sense to me (never been much good at calculus etc). I get the general concepts presented eg...
