Ooooooooooo k then.

Funny thing is, while I was trying to read the link and getting a headache, all I could think of ,when they were saying about crystals, was the film "The Dark Crystal" lol.

Well, why didn't they just SAY so?

It sounds like a theoretical particle residing at true absolute zero with the ability to leave and return to that state. At true absolute zero a particle would emit nothing for us to detect it, but would also remain a particle.

Interesting!


But, it has to be observed somehow, to exist. Even thinking about it is a probe of observation.
A parodox indeed!

What would this "theoretical particle" explain? What observed phenomenon?

Of course, a hypothetical particle doesn't need to explain anything. Nor does a hypothetical crystal.

Maybe thinking about it actually makes it disappear. Kind of a thought paradox. How do you not think about the thing you're trying to find?

On a side note: Could this be the reason we haven't found dark matter yet?

That is a great observation in itself. I have no idea what it would explain, except that perhaps it would be useful information in the future for some other theory.

If real, thermodynamics would really have to be looked at once over.

So, it's a backasswards approach?

Come up with something that might be (but has not been observed). The weirder the better, especially if it's problematic.

Like unicorns.

I didn't say I agreed with it, just it's possibility. It's existance would literally rewrite thermodynamics.

And unicorns would be problematic too. Though possible.

That holy grail has served us well. We would probably have to come up for a way for it to contain it.

The unicorn lair is in North Korea, how do you not know this?

I don't care where they live. It's that rainbow thing they do.

I thought it was in a Nazi base on the moon.

Someone lied to me!

Ok, so you had to invoke Charlie into this...

Rick uses Time Crystals all the time. To freeze time and clean the house, to connect to inter-dimensional cable, to shoot bullets at his alternate-selves, his cellphone to call himself, and I think his portal gun uses them too.

A guy named Schrodinger has a theory on that
