While it is true that there is no hard evidence, the fact that we can discovery things that have happened in the past are a pretty big indicator that wave collapse is happening without our actual observation. Afterward, I'd never felt the same about existence again. I wish I screen capped it! But if space is like a fabric that can stretch and bendâ¦? Aren't you a fucking camera man or some shit? The rest is only empty space. The Fabric of the Cosmos, a four-hour series based on the book by renowned physicist and author Brian Greene, takes us to the frontiers of physics to see how scientists are piecing together the most complete picture yet of space, time, and the universe. The first episode, originally aired November 2011, and rebroadcast July 11, 2012. But in the early decades of the 20th century, a new set of ideas emerged that shook the stage to its very foundations, ideas put forward by a young clerk, working in a Swiss patent office.
Furthermore, there are small atomic nucleus that have decoherence behavior while larger ones don't, adding credence to the fact that complexity of system causes wave collapse. I am so happy you aren't a professor and that you've no publications out there. If you were to then say 'ah well interactions from being in an orbital and so on are abstracted observations' then that also resolves the issue; if an electron is defined by its interactions then its always in a sense being observed and so the question becomes meaningless. Close Close The Fabric of the Cosmos: Quantum Leap Season 38 Episode 18 53m 41s Join Brian Greene on a wild ride into the weird realm of quantum physics, which governs the universe on the tiniest of scales. It could stretch, like an actual fabric. What did the 20 th-century double-slit experiment show? In this show, Brian Greene takes us on a tour of this brave new theory at the frontier of physics, explaining why scientists believe it's true and showing what some of these alternate realities might be like.

Original funding provided by the David H. Instead, it may be just one of an infinite number of worlds that make up the multiverse. From the passenger seat of a New York cab driving near the speed of light, to a pool hall where billiard tables do fantastical things, Brian Greene reveals space as a dynamic fabric that can stretch, twist, warp, and ripple under the influence of gravity. Greene brings quantum mechanics to life in a nightclub like no other, where objects pop in and out of existence, and things over here can affect others over there, instantaneously and without anything crossing the space between them. Episode 4: Universe or Multiverse? And the more those particles struggle to get through, the more they interact with the ocean, and the more mass they gain.
After all, if space were nothing, there would nothing to twist. While his previous documentary, , focused on the stuff that fills the universe, this 2011 documentary instead focuses on the universe itself, the stage upon which everything exists. Send it using entangled particles! He goes further, discussing the prospect of potentially scientifically-allowable theories of time travel. Difference between knowing it and having a good idea what is going on. Next, we have that for any macroscopic system consisting of a certain number of quantum states, the interference between the states gives us genuine time dependent motion. To find enough of them, Perlmutter spent years calling astronomers around the globe, begging for time on their telescopes.
The speed of light is the same for everybody. How might entanglement make teleportation theoretically possible? And those two had to become relative in such a way that they slosh between each other. But how could this be? Sloan Foundation, the Arthur Vining Davis Foundation, the U. Download: Join Brian Greene on a wild ride into the weird realm of quantum physics, which governs the universe on the tiniest of scales. It separates you from me, one galaxy from the next, and atoms from one another.
He had to invent the mechanism for it; he had to understand it. Much of what we thought we knew about our universe—that the past has already happened and the future is yet to be, that space is just an empty void, that our universe is the only universe that exists—just might be wrong. Personal attacks or comments that insult, demean or threaten users will be removed and result in bans. Hate is too great a burden to bear. His unchanging stage allowed him to understand almost all motion we can see around us, yielding laws that can predict everything from the way apples fall from trees to the path the earth takes around the sun. Always message the mods instead of attacking users in public.
From the strange wave particle duality exhibited by the demonstrated wonderfully with a digitally-enhanced bowling alley sequence to the bizarre science behind quantum computers, Greene and other physicists explore the impact of quantum physics on our understanding of the universe. And not just the stuff here on Earth, but the earth itself; what if you took away all the planets, stars and galaxies? Yet ask physicists what time actually is, and the answer might shock you: They have no idea. Our perceptions of time and space have led us astray. But Isaac Newton, he did. I think you need to investigate this more before continuing, instead of just watching the Discovery channel coverage. This program explains some of the weirdest aspects of quantum mechanics: uncertainty and entanglement.
It takes a good bit more than common sense to work out how dynamical inaccessibility yields effective world-splitting. Your browser does not support inline frames or is currently configured not to display inline frames. Up Next: The final episode, will follow at 10 p. In the first episode of the series, Greene tackles the daunting task of explaining the empty space that makes up most. And up until a decade ago, nobody even imagined such stuff even existed.
And good luck putting observation into Quantum Field Theory. Greene brings quantum mechanics to life in a nightclub like no other, where objects pop in and out of existence, and things over here can affect others over there, instantaneously and without anything crossing the space between them. From the passenger seat of a New York cab driving near the speed of light, to a pool hall where billiard tables do fantastical things, Brian Greene reveals space as a dynamic fabric. Particles are immersed in this ocean, and gain mass as they move through it. But to most of us, space is nothing, an empty void.
