Here you go:
Let's start with a fast sprinter. This sprinter can run the 50 yard dash in record time. This sprinter represents a subatomic
Now let's say this sprinter gets entangled with a 50 lbs. backpack. Now this sprinter is easier to locate when he's trying to run the 50 yard
If he's entangled with 200 lbs then he will slow down to a crawl.
The entangled sprinter is us or any macroscopic object.
The subatomic particle is so fast that it can interefere with itself an be in two different places at the same time.
It's also so small that it could travel for long periods of time in a state of superposition.
This isn't the case with macroscopic objects. This is because of decoherence. This just means it's easier for large objects to interact with their
enviroments and decohere. Also, you can't detect any interference patterns with large objects.
So for years the question has been, are large objects in a state of superposition.
There's two leading theories in quantum mechanics. One is called many worlds interpretation and the other one is the copenhagen interpretation.
Copenhagen says superposition doesn't apply to us and it's just a mathematical description of a quantum event. Many worlds says superposition does
happen with large objects and these different states are Parallel universes.
People like Einstein and Schrodinger thought it was absurd to apply things like superposition to our classical world and this led to Schrodinger's
though experiment about the dead/live cat.
We now come to this article. It shows that macroscopic objects are in a state of superposition. We're way past Planck's Constant which is where
superposition should cease if it just applies to the quantum world.
This experiment shows that Parallel universes exist. Just think about the everyday world, we don't see cars moving and not moving or people walking
and not walking. It doesn't make any sense to say both states can occur in a single universe. They can't and we don't see the superposition of
Also, this is a matter of information and computation. There isn't enough computational power in a single universe to describe the superposition of
states of macroscopic objects. This computation has to be taking place somewhere.
This is why quantum computers will be so powerful. People will have laptop computers that have more computational power than a single universe. Who
knows, we could be a simulation on someone's quantum computer. It will be easy to simulate a single universe on a quantum computer. This is because
quantum computers carry out computation in parallel universes instead of a single universe.
For instance you have something called Shor's Algorithm. To solve Shor's Algorithm on a classical computer would take years but you can do it
quickly on a quantum computer.
We know the universe contains 10/90 bits and it has carried out 10/120 operations. This would be easy for a quantum computer to simulate.
So the single universe doesn't have the computational power to calculate the superposition of macroscopic objects.
Macroscopic objects are in a state of superposition but these states don't interfere with each other or they interfere every once in a blue moon.
This is because of decoherence. So these states don't interfere but they are PARALLEL to each other.
Just think of it like this. Microscopic objects can be in a state of superposition and we can detect the interference patterns. Macroscopic objects
can be in a state of superposition but we can't detect interference because of decoherence and the superposition of macroscopic objects are parallel
to each other.
Like I said, I think this proves that Parallel universes exist. There's no other explanation because we shouldn't see superposition on a macroscopic
level if it's just a mathematical curiosity of the quantum world. Superposition should stop at Planck scales but clearly it doesn't.
I hope this helps.
