Quantum Physics: It's Everwhere!

Updated on September 19, 2014

Quantum World: Universe

In Quantum Atom Theory time is formed by the quantum wave particle function continuously collapsing and reforming. Creating new photons that will have a unique position in space and time that the wave function never had before the collapse.

What is Macroscopic Superposition ?

It is where you bring quantum mechanics up from the single particle atomic or subatomic level to the macroscopic world we live in.

Why is this Important?

Most physcists think quantum mechanics applies to everything, no matter what the size. It is not a matter of scale. Schrodinger's cat may be both alive and dead! An example is entanglement - pairs of elementary particles such as electrons.

Most people are aware of micro-scale experiments of entanglement where the speed of light is exceeded. The macro-world is more difficult to isolate. So far, we have not been proven to be both alive and dead at the same time!

It was thought that quantum phenomena would operate only at the level of individual particles. The process of discovery in quantum physics seems to indicate that the entanglement coordinates the properties of distant particles. One of the more radical predictions of quantum mechanics is that a particle can be both here and there simultaneously. Living cells nurture and exploit these phenomena.

Photosynthesis - the basic chemical energy (food) process from sunlight - may involve intalglement. "Old-fashioned" physics fails to explain the almost 100% efficiency of the process. Sunlight ejects electrons inside the leaf and these ejected electrons must find their way to where the chemical reaction center. This is where they release their energy and set off reactions that fuel the plants.

Summary

The challenge is if we can wrap our heads around the concept of the possiblity of applying our own deep awareness of our environment. This would be an application of quantum coherence as it might be applied of our own "cause and effect" of reciprocal relationship with the world as a whole.

Perhaps we are both "dead and alive." We have the choice which state we want to live in... To be proactive, or reactive: therein is our choices...

      dahoglund,

      I am not "good" at science either. I am interested in knowing how things work and the answers as they evolve. Science is not an exact effort. It is built upon "guesses" aka theories... These theories are then tested and modified as more is learned. It often appears contradictive - one day a statement is made and the next it is said to be not true. An example is cell phones. We have been told they may be hazardous to our health, perhaps causing cancers... Then a study is done that they quote as they are OK.. Then another that says they are not OK.. After a period of time, there is a consensus developed. This may be "true" for years, to be changed again... Life is a process of discovery.

      FitnezzJim,

      No one does... It is a process of discovery.

      Thanks for your comments.

      f_hruz,

      The challenge is to be succint and simple, but discuss a complex topic that defies logic as we know it...

      Thanks for your comments!

      Not sure if it is proven that particles at macrodistances get tangled or not, but it's fairly obvious that the waves they generate tangle all the time.

      Photosynthesis is a good example, but could you expand on this topic a bit more in general terms ... "The process of discovery in quantum physics seems to indicate that the entanglement coordinates the properties of distant particles."

      Please add some referrences and an Amazon book list - thanks!

      I am not very good on science but it is something to think about.
