Ummm... No, you haven't. If you had, you wouldn't be calling it Quantum Physics. You'd be calling it something else. Take it from someone who
really HAS studied it, in college, and after college. This isn't quantum physics. This is feel-good mental stuff. If you wish to maintain
credability, you need to call things by their rightful name, or at least don't make up definitions to existing names and then use "Oh, I been doing
it a while, and it takes some getting used to" as a defense when it is clearly and utterly wrong.
Now, having read your past posts, which by the way have often been extremely inflammatory and rude in some cases (though your intent at the time was
sarcasm or joking), I will give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you're just pulling another DGTempe-post, which is to say, something
completely off-the-wall and purposefully disruptive.
If, however, you honestly believe that "thinking postive thoughts to change the universe" equals Quantum Physics, you are vastly mistaken.
And since you challenged another poster to tell you all about Quantum Physics because there's so many experts on everything (welcome to the 'net, my
friend), I will be happy to enlighten you.
Quantum Physics is, in layman's terms, the study of where conventional physics breaks down at the extremely large or extremely minute levels. In
practice, it is far more complex, but has nothing to do with "thinking happy thoughts at the universe".
Quantum mechanics is a fundamental branch of physics that supersedes classical mechanics at the atomic and subatomic levels. It provides the
underlying mathematical framework for many fields of physics and chemistry, including condensed matter physics, atomic physics, molecular physics,
computational chemistry, quantum chemistry, particle physics, and nuclear physics. Quantum mechanics is a subset of quantum field theory and quantum
physics in general, which, along with general relativity, is one of the pillars of modern physics.
The branch of physics that uses quantum theory to describe and predict the properties of a physical system.
Quantum physics is a branch of science that deals with discrete, indivisible units of energy called quanta as described by the Quantum Theory. There
are five main ideas represented in Quantum Theory:
Energy is not continuous, but comes in small but discrete units.
The elementary particles behave both like particles and like waves.
The movement of these particles is inherently random.
It is physically impossible to know both the position and the momentum of a particle at the same time. The more precisely one is known, the less
precise the measurement of the other is.
The atomic world is nothing like the world we live in.
I believe what you are attempting to post about, though perhaps a language barrier has caused the misunderstanding, is Quantum Consciousness
Please, with all due respect, please compare the two and make sure which one you are really trying to talk about, because at present you're coming
across as willfully ignorant. Hopefully it's just an honest mistake.
