Just when you thought that the potential for quantum physics to explain the soul was bad enough, along comes this.
so as far as I can tell there's a little bit of something like time travel involved -
Through a careful manipulation of its polarization, researchers were able to set the first photon (the one that went through the apparatus) into a superposition of wave and particle states, meaning it was an indeterminate mixture of the two. By changing how they handled the second photon, they could also control the probabilities of this superposition, making it more wave or particle-like on demand. As with the other experiment, they did this all after the first photon had been through the device and been measured by the two detectors.
