Ghost Universes Kill
Schrodinger's Quantum Cat
I wish I could do justice to this article and explain it like someone with a PHD. could.
I just wanted to post the link and make a couple comments;
The synopsis of this link is that 'quantum waveform' does not need to be treated
like a 'real thing' in this variant which is similar to the Many World's Interpretation
of Quantum Mechanics. There is no 'waveform collapse' like in the Copenhagen
Interpretation. Also, there is none of the "a new universe is created with every
'observation' type of stuff, which annoys a lot of people's sensibilities.
This article posits that all these paralell worlds exist simultaneously, and are in
fact bumping into each other constantly. This is a very subtle effect however
so only on the very smallest scale is the effect seen.
Now, the researchers haven't fully 'cloned' existing quantum mechanics with this
theory.. i.e long-range entanglement and other quantum weirdness cannot all
be replicated yet.
But I find this a very fascinating line of research, and in fact this very thing has
been my personal opinion for more than 30 years.. of course that and a buck
fifty won't buy a cup of coffee at Starbucks.
Now if this hypothesis was actually correct, then perhaps we'd throw out such
concepts as dark matter entirely.. that this theory would be another explanation
just like MOND say (modified Newtonian dynamics)... anything which better
explains gravity might do away with dark matter entirely.
I'm just saying this might be something to watch and consider. I'm not actually
a scientist myself just a technologist who likes to read science.
