Neat.
Heisenberg was famous for his uncertainty principle, among other neat mathematical stuff.

The principle states that you could either measure a particles exact position, but not exactly when.
Or
You could measure exactly when a particle is present, but not exactly where.
But you can't measure both at once due to these same 'quantum fluctuations'
Did the double slit experiment show that local reality can change when observed
Schroedinger?

So far so good, and it all makes sense, i find the idea of a local reality only applicable to gravity & temporal media, these being but aspects of the universe around us.

Measuring anything at all with any certainty is still a guessing game at times, most of our instruments measure the side effect of a phenomenon, not the phenomenon itself.

What about your middle finger? I find it very useful to post on the IPad.

If I am to take its literal laymen definition, there has to be some local realism. When I put a pencil on my table and it stays there? That's local realism. If I walk away in a year and come back, it may not be there for a variety of reasons. Sometimes I'll know how it's not there and sometimes I won't. Bottom line, without some kind of local realism we could not function as separate individuals or objects or forces. Moreso, we might not be able to quantify or conceptualize our environment. When what's occurring can only be explained by also being on the other side of the universe, being that's impossible, a full understanding, maybe evne understanding at all, is beyond our reach.

What's this literal laymen definition? It's like conservation of energy. It conserves our local reality. It gives us a consistency. It's like solid ground. I'd think of it as a matrix of values remaining somewhat persistent over time. It's like a insulating layer allowing our local reality to persist apart from others.

What would the opposite? Without local realities, everything becomes mixed universally. It's like a cup of coffee with varying kinetic energy dispersing and reaching maximum entropy. Everything mixes until it reaches a steady temperature across the whole fluid. All of reality would mix this way. There would be no localization, so what would it be? The only way to know what it's is to look at the whole thing, not at any part or parts. It would be more like a mind than a collection of them. More like a single thing.

The whole observational aspect of quantum physics also holds for our perception of reality as time advances.
We create our own reality in this regard, and then step into it, so "being beyond our reach" should be something we will not have to say anymore and perhaps, some day, it will be up to us if the cat is alive or dead.

YOU FOOLS! This 'experiment' is obviously intended to see which of you has clairvoyance or precognition.

The ones of you who 'generate random ones and zeroes' that match the ones the program pre-selects will out themselves as having the Sight. And then it'll be all white vans with no tags down the street for a bit, and the really good ones will show up on milk cartons.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! Mwa ha ha ha ha!

im confused by what im supposed to be doing or what this is proving?
it said i did not pass the level? totally confusing "experiment"

You have neither clairvoyance nor precognition. Go about your way, mugglette.

right based off of a poorly put together "test" where i am pushing keyboard keys as fast as i can

Yes well, i got the impression that any who were TOO good at this game might get noticed, lol.
Like that disney film...

Try to influence This game

Whoever programmed this was GOOD, they knew all the foibles of the actual machine, they even took into account the spin of the ball.....

So it has been a week since I successfully beat the "machine" and something most odd happened to me in line with your statement. I was reading the local paper (a piece about flower pots going missing down near Mrs. Mulligans plot I believe), minding my own business, when all of a sudden I heard a ratta-tat-tat at the door.

"who in blazes could it be at this hour?!" I exclaimed as I put the paper down, took a bite out of my crumpet and walked to the door.

Upon opening I saw a man, mid fifties with a bowler hat and a cane, dressed sharp in a black suit. He had the most impressive salt + pepper mustache and beard, twirled finely at each end, with a pipe between the two.

"Hello Constant-thought, I need you to come with me - although I am sure you already knew this..." he said with a large draw on his pipe and a tip of his head. Confused I looked at the man and told him to bugger off. I said that I don't want to be part of a ruddy pyramid scheme, I can't even put up my flat pack shed let alone work on complex pyramid schematics. He raised up his cane and pushed the stub of it over my top lip (there was a piece of gum on the end, but the intensity of the situation caused me to remain still and not mention its faintly minty aroma).

"1, 0, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0" he whispered.

"won not one, one won not nought one won?" I replied. "Codswallop, utter gibberish. You make no sense man! I have a crumpet waiting for me that is getting to unbearably cool levels, leave me be before you step into a mess you can't clean off and I set the cats on you. Final warning." I sternly stated with a cold look mixed with nausea.

And at that moment he crossed his eyes, tapped his cane thrice to the floor, took a large drag on his pipe and ran off behind the smoke cloud never to be seen again.

A harrowing tale, as I am sure readers can imagine. I was shaken to my very core. What is even stranger though is that upon checking the CCTV footage he wasn't a man in a suit with a trendy mustache and cane at all, he was a large badger covered in jam rummaging through my bins. One must remember tinctures and the local paper is a feat best left to the experts!

To bad I used my own stuff to analyze the oracle itself and thus probably more than 50% of my contributions are not human random but seeded "pretend to be" random 1/0s. I was playing my own game with it. Although I don´t think it made much impact and lost most of the time when using my programs. Tells me oracle had hardware supported "real" random generators, or we were playing against each others (although timeshifted maybe).
