The bare bones of the theory & possible solution is that there is another state of matter than what we learned in school (solid, liquid, gas and in some schools, plasma). This new phase of matter, time crystals, operates outside the standard model of physics & laws of thermodynamics. But that's okay because the time crystals were observed subatomically where we already know the laws of physics begin to breakdown.
Subatomic study is called Quantum Physics. The "rules" of quantum physics are more flexible as more & more theorized particles are found but don't always behave as theorized. "Time Crystals" are subatomic particles that appear to violate the first and second laws of thermodynamics in that they appears to spin first, in the wrong direction and second, without energy input or loss (perpetual motion). Although it sounds like a small amount of time observed, having the particle measured into nanoseconds is actually a really long time in quantum state math.

Thank you so much for this, still can't fully wrap my mind around this, but with a couple of repeated readings, slowly....very slowly I may be around understanding it...ha!

Just absolutely fascinating.....what a time to be alive. Let's time crystal this moment xD

i dont know how to make a new thread but i found this gem

Last year, researchers found 16 Fast Radio Bursts all coming from the same source beyond our Milky Way, and now Harvard physicists have proposed that signals like these could be evidence of advanced alien technology.

Now Loeb and his team say that in the absence of an explanation everyone can agree on, we should be looking at some slightly less... natural sources.

With that in mind, Loeb and his team investigated the possibility that Fast Radio Bursts were coming from an enormous radio transmitter on a distant alien planet, that beams FRB-like signals across the Universe to propel giant light sails.

This could change physics completely. Nice to see some gems listed through all the mud on ATS. a reply to: darkbake

Isn't that kind of like the Spice from 'Dune?'
Civilizations went to war over that stuff.

LOL Good One..

The Spice ,

Bending time space for Pilots!..

Ironically for The Fictional Spice

the closest we have ( what the Public ONLY knows ) is

considered the Smart Drug.

This is really interesting Time Crystals

3 dimension and growing 4th dimension ?

Something you would of seen in a Vintage Science fiction Book or Digest ..

tell ya what im thinking ,,

Take Time Crystals with Quantum Entanglement..

What would Happen ?


what is Quantum Entanglement ?

for those that dont Know..

hell Anti Matter , Dark Matter , String theory, could be added too into the formula .

The creators of the newly-announced time crystals aren’t fussed about definitions. They are, instead, excited by the possibility of using their methods to accelerate the development of quantum computers, which are predicted to be faster than any supercomputer that can be built with silicon chips. Quantum computers require atoms to exist in entangled states, where changing the state of one automatically causes the other to change state too. At present, such states can be achieved only at extremely low temperatures. Lurkin got all the nitrogen atoms in his dirty diamond to change position together at a constant frequency—meaning they were held in quantum entanglement—and he did it at room temperature.
