5 Thought-Provoking Quantum Experiments Showing That Reality Is an Illusion

quantum experimentsNo one in the world can fathom what quantum mechanics is, this is perhaps the most important thing you need to know about it. Granted, many physicists have learned to use its laws and even predict phenomena based on quantum calculations. But it is still unclear why the observer of an experiment determines behavior of the system and causes it to favor one state over another. “Theories and Applications” picked examples of experiments with outcomes which will inevitably be influenced by the observer, and tried to figure out how quantum mechanics is going to deal with the intervention of conscious thought in material reality.

How Your Mind Can Influence Your Genes

consciousness-genesAmerican biologist claims that genes can be affected by signals located in the external environment of the cell, such as thoughts, feelings and emotions.

Cell biologist Dr. Bruce X. Lipton (formerly professor of medical courses in high school and now scientific researcher) was one of the first scientists who detected this effect. Having performed a series of experiments, he revealed that the cell membrane is an organic analogue of a computer chip.

Although these views conflict with the scientific doctrine, which states that genes are those that control behavior, similar publications of other researchers have strengthen this view. Continue reading

Quantum Teleportation of Information Opens the Way for Quantum Internet!

quantum internetFor the first time an international team of physicists succeeded to teleport information in a solid-state quantum memory, which is a prerequisite for future quantum internet.

In quantum teleportation no mass is transferred, but only the information that describes the state of the quantum system that transmits the signal. The other quantum system receives all the properties of the transmitted quantum state and creates an exact copy.

This kind of technology is behind a new generation of computer systems, including quantum Internet, which among other things promises to exchange information between computers Continue reading

New Theory of Stephen Hawking Claims That Black Holes Don’t Exist

black hole stephen hawkingAccording to a new theory of Stephen Hawking, black holes are probably not like he considered them to be in his previous theory 40 years ago.

Prominent physicist Stephen Hawking, one of the “fathers” of the modern theory of black holes, now comes to challenge some central aspects of his own theory, which are considered almost “doctrines” of contemporary physics. In essence, he claims that there are no black holes, at least as they are imagined by the scientists so far. Continue reading

Energy Can Be Teleported Over Long Distances, Say Quantum Physicists

quantum teleportationJapanese physicists made calculations that prove that energy can be transmitted over long distances by quantum teleportation.

Quantum teleportation, despite its name, does not mean instantaneous transfer to a distance, because it necessarily requires the classical (not superlight) communication channel.
At the same time, the quantum state can be transmitted, and the concept of transferring energy in this way is not new, but previously, calculations showed that the possibility of such a transfer should Continue reading

Japanese Scientists Prove That Teleportation Is Possible

quantum teleportation experimentThe future is already here: for the first time in the world, a team of Japanese scientists managed to implement teleportation! A beam of light was instantly moved from point A to point B.

For the purpose of the experiment, Noriyuki Lee and his colleagues converted light into elementary particles – photons. They kept only one photon that carried the information about the rest beam. This photon was entangled at the quantum level with another photon, which was located at point B. It turned out that these two photons instantaneously affected each other, being physically located in different places. Thanks to this phenomenon, the original beam was at the same moment recreated elsewhere using the information carried by the photon. Continue reading

Wormholes and Quantum Entanglement Seem to Be Linked

wormhole quantum entanglementWormholes in space-time continuum, which are a great method of the rapid movements between different parts of the universe, are certainly well known to the readers of science fiction. Moreover, the concept of wormholes is well described in the space-time theory, where they are called Einstein-Rosen bridges and represent the deformation of space-time continuum. But apart from wormholes in nature, there is another related phenomenon called quantum entanglement, and a group of physicists from the University of Washington and the Stony Brook University in New York believes that these two phenomena are inextricably linked with each other. Continue reading

7 Optimistic Scenarios for the Future of Our Planet

earth mankind futureVisions of future depicted by science fiction writers and futurists usually include atomic explosion, killer robots on tracks and cannibal nomads riding on motorcycles. And this is justified, since we do not take adequate care of our environment, new technologies are not always good of mankind and people of the world are at war with each other without the robots present.

But we cannot be too sure that the history of human civilization will end in such a grim way. Finding ways to avoid premonitions of popular sci-fi stories and apocalyptic dystopia may Continue reading

5 Amazing Things We Learnt from Stephen Hawking

stephen hawking1. The past is just a probability

In accordance with Hawking, one of the consequences of the theory of quantum mechanics is that the events in the past did not occur in a particular way. Instead, they occurred in all possible ways. This has to do with the probabilistic nature of matter and energy as stated by quantum mechanics: as long as there is no outside observer, everything is uncertain.

As Hawking said, “no matter what kind of memories of the past you keep in the present, the past, as well as the future, is uncertain and exists as a range of possibilities.

General relativity postulates that Continue reading

Quantum Theory Proves That Consciousness Moves to Another Universe After Death

consciousness parallel universeA book titled “Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness Are the Keys to Understanding the Nature of the Universe“, published in the USA, has stirred up the Internet, because it contained a notion that life does not end when the body dies, and it can last forever. The author of this publication, scientist Robert Lanza has no doubts that this is possible.

Beyond time and space

Lanza is an expert in regenerative medicine and scientific director of Advanced Cell Technology Company. Before he has been known for his extensive research which dealt with stem cells, he was also famous for several successful experiments on cloning endangered animal species. Continue reading
