    Quantum physics discussion!

    Can we have a nice little discussion about quantum physics and the basic meaning of existance as we percieve it? Somebody break out the wine and Brie and I'll fetch the crackers. Start any time!

    Wait till CERN gets that new collider on line and we will have lots of new stuff to digest. The pictures of that thing just amaze me. So what do you think will come out of their first collision??

    I tried to explain the Schrodiger Cat thing to my mum... she was like 'it's clearly not both dead and alive! You just gotta open it and find out...'

    Mums generally aren't the best physicians...

    My firm belief is that there is no true randomness, only apparent randomness in the form of chaotic (in the mathematical sense) behaviour. Calculable in theory, but never in practice due to irrational starting values.

    I have that dvd. I like the bit about the research done by Dr. Masaru Emoto who had a theory that water can be effected by emotion (music, words, photographs, blessings, etc.) Some examples can be seen here: https://www.hado.net/watercrystals/index.php

    My sister has the first book he put out. It was pretty fascinating stuff! Our thoughts affect the perception of reality and thus reality itself. Wild stuff!

    AND

    Really does "quantum physics" and "the basic meaning of existance" really go together?

    Quantum Physics and the basic meaning of existance exist together and are intertwined. Science and Philosophy combine to find the meanings of existance in my poor and humble opinion.

    I guess my point is that none of it is proved correct? So it could really be peanut butter and jelly...I mean quantum physics is cool....and I am sure it explains a LOT but the basic meaning of existence? Maybe why we exist yes but the meaning? I don't see it....

    There is your perception that you posted and possibly there is mine that you responded. Whether one recieved ones own response or percieved a repsonse is rather in question! I am not trying to be perverse in the thought process but as you can see one can delve quite deeply down the rabbit hole! What is real and what is not? What is exiostance? What is conciousness? What is concious perception? Is your perception reality or reality a result of your perception?

    Most folks get a bit put off and don't like to delve into the questions of existance and reality. Some folks freak when looking into a mirror and start the process of asking who and what are they looking at. Who am I? Why am I here? What is my purpose? Where am I going?

    Simple seeming starting points for an infite journey? You were never born and you will never die. You always were and always will be. Everything that was, is, will be, etc...exists now or whatever now is..............

    All these thoughts seem rather odd and disturbing but therin lies the wonder of the journey!

    Actually there are a multitude of alternate realities and in some the cookies are indeed all gone and in others they are not. I believe they are using sporks right now so you are correct I believe in the fact that they are out of spoons!
