Quantum Physics(all possibilities)

    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:

          Good luck.

            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 smile

    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!
