Why Physicists Are Saying Consciousness Is A State Of Matter, Like a Solid, A Liquid Or A Gas — The Physics arXiv Blog. There’s a quiet revolution underway in theoretical physics.

Light stopped completely for a minute inside a crystal: The basis of quantum memory

For one whole minute, light, which is usually the fastest thing in the known universe and travels at 300 million meters per second, was stopped dead still inside a crystal. This effectively creates light memory, where the image being carried by the light is stored in crystals. Beyond being utterly cool, this breakthrough could lead to the creation of long-range quantum networks — and perhaps, tantalizingly, this research might also give us some clues on accelerating light beyond the universal speed limit.

Quand la lumière devient matière : l'incroyable expérience enfin réalisée ?

Fabriquer de la matière à partir de la lumière - un phénomène quantique du monde subatomique - nul n'y était encore parvenu. Des chercheurs britanniques de l'Imperial College London ont annoncé avoir trouvé le moyen de parvenir à cette incroyable prouesse, dans un article paru dans la revue Nature ce dimanche ce 18 mai. Habituellement, dans les accélérateurs de particules, matière et antimatière s'annihilent spontanément en émettant des photons de haute énergie, mais une paire de photons peut-elle se transformer en matière ?

En théorie c'est possible, les physiciens Gregory Breit et John Wheeler l'avaient prédit en 1934 selon la célèbre équation d'Einstein E=mc² qui postule qu'énergie et matière sont deux entités équivalentes, m étant la masse et c étant la vitesse de la lumière. Quantum Levitation. One weird theory could make anti-gravity and faster-than-light travel possible. First-ever human head transplant is now possible, says neuroscientist. Technical barriers to grafting one person’s head onto another person’s body can now be overcome, says Dr.

First-ever human head transplant is now possible, says neuroscientist

Sergio Canavero, a member of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group. In a recent paper, Canavero outlines a procedure modeled on successful head transplants which have been carried out in animals since 1970. The one problem with these transplants was that scientists were unable to connect the animals’ spinal cords to their donor bodies, leaving them paralyzed below the point of transplant. 7 Totally Unexpected Outcomes That Could Follow the Singularity.

Its not going to be any of these, obviously.

But some combination. Faster than light particles found, claim scientists. It is a concept that forms a cornerstone of our understanding of the universe and the concept of time – nothing can travel faster than the speed of light.

What if our existence is a holographic projection of another, flat version of you living on a two-dimensional "surface" at the edge of this universe?

Are We Living in a Holographic Universe? This May Be the Greatest Revolution of the 21st Century

In other words, are we real, or are we quantum interactions on the edges of the universe - and is that just as real anyway? Whether we actually live in a hologram is being hotly debated, but it is now becoming clear that looking at phenomena through a holographic lens could be key to solving some of the most perplexing problems in physics, including the physics that reigned before the big bang,what gives particles mass, a theory of quantum gravity. Aspect and his team discovered that under certain circumstances subatomic particles such as electrons are able to instantaneously communicate with each other regardless of the distance separating them. It doesn't matter whether they are 10 feet or 10 billion miles apart. Somehow each particle always seems to know what the other is doing. The Universe as a Hologram.

Researchers at the Large Hadron Collider at Cern, the European particle physics lab near Geneva, announced the findings at a conference on Friday.

Ecstasy Kills Cancer. It may sound like a hoax, but it’s true: Recent studies show that a modified form of ecstasy kills 100% of blood cancer cells. While patient application is still a long way away, in test tube studies, the modified ecstasy killed all of leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma cells (as reported by the BBC). Your doctor probably won’t be telling you to take two hits of ecstasy anytime soon, but this exciting discovery gives hope to those suffering with blood cancers and calls into question once again our country’s perilous relationship with drugs and the true reasoning behind the ongoing War on Drugs.
