Are we measuring the time in the correct way ? In 2012, the winner of the National Medal of Science, Jakir Aharonov, who is considered one of the world’s leading quantum theorist, he published a paper in Nature Physics, which shows that the present is limited to past and future.
This means that what is happening in the present may depend on what happened in the noisiness, which makes no sense, as quantum physics rarely done.
It also means that what has happened in the past can affect the present. It seems strange, does not it ?
This is something that is difficult to understand defininitvno.
“We chose to examine a phenomenon which is impossible, absolutely impossible to explain in a classical way, and which contains the name of the heart of quantum mechanics. In reality, it contains a mystery. “- Richard Feynman, Nobel Prize of the twentieth century.
This is not the first time that quantum physicists have studied the structure of time. Those are the details of the experiment, the same one that was mentioned in the work that is cited above.
Deferred selection / Quantum Eraser / Time
There is another revolutionary, strange experiment which also has enormous implications for understanding the nature of our reality, namely, the nature of what we call “time.”
It is known as an experiment “deferred election,” or “quantum eraser,” and can be considered a modified version of the double slit experiment.
To understand the delayed-choice experiment, gone forth to understand quantum double slit experiment.
In this experiment, small pieces of matter (photons, electrons, or any thing of atomic size) is fired at the screen with two slits in it. On the other side of the screen, video camera captures high technology where each photon lands.
When scientists close one slot, the camera will show us the expected model. But when both slits are open, there is an “interference pattern” – they begin to behave like waves.
This does not mean that atomic facilities pomatrani like waves (although recently they viewed as waves), they just act that way.
This means that each individual photon goes through both slits at the same time interferes with itself, but it also goes through one slit to the other eyelet.
Besides, he does not pass through any of them. A unique piece of matter becomes a “wave” of potential, expressing themselves in the form of multiple opportunities, and that is why we get the interference pattern.
As a piece of Matri can exist and is expressed in several states, without any physical properties, while the “measured” or “observe”? In addition, as determined which way to go when there are more opportunities?
Then, when the “observer” chooses to measure and views which slotted piece of matter goes on, “wave” of potential pathways fall into a single path.
Particle stations, “wave” of potential in getting a single particle trajectory. As a particle known to be under surveillance. The observer has some kind of influence on the behavior of the particles.
This quantum uncertainty is defined as the ability “according to quantum mechanical laws that govern subatomic affairs, particles like electrons exist in the dim state of the possibilities – could be anywhere, everywhere and nowhere.” (New York Times)
According to Andrew Truscott physicist, lead researcher of the study, which was published by the Australian National University, the experiment suggests that “there is no reality, unless we look at it.”
This suggests that we live in a holographic universe type.
So, of any importance all of this information to the concept of time?
Just as the double slit experiment shows that the factors associated with conscious collapse of the quantum wave functions (piece of matter exists in more potential states) in one piece of matter with defined physical characteristics (are no longer the wave, all these potential states are merged into one) , delayed-choice experiment shows that what is happening in the present can change what happens (happened) in the past.
It also shows how time can go backwards, as cause and effect can be reversed, and that the future has caused past.
As quantum double slit experiment, deferred selection / quantum eraser are shown and repeated several times.
For example, physicists at the Australian National University (ANU) have conducted a thought experiment delayed-choice John Wheeler, and the findings were recently published in the journal Nature Physics.
In 2007 (Science 315, 966, 2007), researchers in France fired a photon in the camera and showed their procedures retroactively change something that’s already happened.
“If we try to be attributed to the objective meaning of the quantum state of a system, the curious paradoxes appear: quantum effects imitate not only the current operation from a distance, but, as you can see here, the impact of future events to past events, even after these Events were recorded irreversibly. “- Asher Peres, a pioneer in quantum theory to information
The list literally goes on, and it was first highlighted by the John Wheeler in 1978, which is why we end this article explaining his experiments disposed of choice. He believed that this experiment is best explained on a cosmic scale.
Explained the cosmic scale
Would like to imagine a star that emits a photon billions of years ago, which goes in the direction of Earth. Between galaxies there.
As a result of what is known as “gravitaiciono lens’ brightness will have to be bent around the galaxy in order to reach Earth, so you must choose one of two paths, left or right.
Billions of years later, if someone decides to set fire “capture” of photons obtained obrazad will be (as already explained in the double-slit experiment) mixing patterns. This shows that a photon chosen one way, and that he chose another path.
One could also choose to “peek” at the incoming photons, setting the mast on each side of the galaxy to determine which side of the photon came to Earth.
The act of measurement or “observations” which path the photon coming means that can come only from one side. The form will no longer be a mixed form that presents more opportunities than one form that shows “one” time.
What it means? This means that how we choose the measurement of “now,” it affects to which direction the photon arrived billions of years ago. Our choice at this point affect what has already happened in the past …
This makes absolutely no sense, which is a common occurrence when it comes to quantum physics. Regardless of whether it makes sense to us, it really is.
This experiment also indicates that the quantum interference (which is also confirmed) there regardless of the weather. Which means that two kinds of matter can actually be involved again in time.
Time as we measure it, and we know, does not exist.
