I just thought of this this afternoon and I thought I'd put it forward for the ATS community to consider. Maybe just as a thought experiment for
What do those three in the subject thread put together potentially equal? The potential discovery of extraterrestrial life.
Now here are the series of steps in the thinking:
1) Quantum entanglement of 1mm diamonds has been demonstrated. See Science Magazine www.sciencemag.org...
It's real. To sum it up is their public domain abstract:
Quantum entanglement in the motion of macroscopic solid bodies has implications both for quantum technologies and foundational studies of the boundary
between the quantum and classical worlds. Entanglement is usually fragile in room-temperature solids, owing to strong interactions both internally and
with the noisy environment. We generated motional entanglement between vibrational states of two spatially separated, millimeter-sized diamonds at
room temperature. By measuring strong nonclassical correlations between Raman-scattered photons, we showed that the quantum state of the diamonds has
positive concurrence with 98% probability. Our results show that entanglement can persist in the classical context of moving macroscopic solids in
Of course the most obvious implication is that this is the future of communication. It will be instantaneous and without boundaries. We will,
eventually and probably fairly soon, communicate with quantum entanglement. A "moving macroscopic solid" is varied so that its counterpart follows
the same pattern while being located far away, and instant communication is achieved.
2) The Mistake of SETI.
They say that it's a good idea to scan tiny little sections of the galaxy, bit by bit, hoping for a radio signal from an intelligent civilization.
Now, this is a seriously flawed concept. How long in the history of the human race did we use powerful radio transmitters to communicate? A few
decades? That era is over now. We use low-power microwaves that don't carry out into space in any significant way, when we aren't using closed
systems. What radio transmitters we use now are peanuts in power to what we used to use. The era lasted a blip in time. And who is to say that any
significant number of intelligent species would go through the same technological eras as we did? Talk about a whole bunch of unsubstantiated
assumptions. The people running SETI are imagining aliens in our image, going through the same stages we did, and somehow, even if they did, we're
going to catch that blip in time when they had high-powered radio equipment. Talk about putting a needle in a haystack that's sitting on a needle on a
3) Flakey Vibration Obsessed New Agers.
From any logical, critical thinking, scientific-minded perspective, the general approach to "vibrations" most New Agers take is ridiculous and without
any evidence. However like most such things, they have started from a real foundation and built a house of straw from it. The idea that you can
"change your vibration" to be healthier or whatever is quite stupid and illogical. Especially using a quartz crystal or whatnot. It's like a cartoon
form in the intelligent person's mind. However, not so fast. Maybe there is something there for something plausible.
The idea that things of a uniform material have their own "vibration" is not all that ridiculous and in a way, we can use this concept to -- PERHAPS
-- detect alien intelligences.
Now wait a second. Don't just roll your eyes and dismiss this. Look back at my steps.
Here's how such an experiment would work.
1) We assume, probably quite rightly, that advanced civilizations elsewhere will adopt quantum entanglement for their communication. And, quite
obviously, it is a very, very long term solution. Instant, low power, technology that never becomes obsolete once fully developed. So the odds of
detecting such a civilization using it right now, are vastly superior to looking for civilizations who might have used radio communications for a blip
in their history. That's logical.
2) As we see that "macroscopic solids in ambient conditions" can be used in quantum entanglement experiments, we are likely within the position to be
able to create a "tuning diamond". Yes. A "tuning diamond". So what we do is "tune" this diamond to various frequencies, various vibrations,
movements, et al, and test to see if we get a repeating signal. In essence, we're looking to match it with another quantum entangled diamond being
used by an alien civilization for communication. After all, it kind of makes sense that that is what they'd be using. A lot more likely than a radio
signal. See above for my rationale.
3) The question is: How do we tune (and retune) a diamond to be receptive to quantum entanglement frequencies?
