This Will Mindfuck You: The Double-Slit Experiment. The video below shows scientific proof that there is something NOT quite logical or scientific about this universe.

This Will Mindfuck You: The Double-Slit Experiment

The mere act of observation can completely change the outcome of an event! Before I get too ahead of myself, you need to watch the video below to understand: Why do we believe in electrons, but not in fairies? By Benjamin Kuipers No one has directly observed either electrons or fairies.

Why do we believe in electrons, but not in fairies?

Both of them are theoretical constructs, useful to explain observations that might be difficult to explain otherwise. The "theory of fairies" can actually explain more things than the "theory of electrons". So why do we believe in electrons, but not in fairies? CU researchers propose rewilding. Carl Buell for Cornell University/Nature Could this be the Great Plains in 100 years?

Artist Carl Buell provided this fanciful depiction of a rewilding scene. If Cornell University researchers and their colleagues have their way, cheetahs, lions, elephants, camels and other large wild animals may soon roam parts of North America. "If we only have 10 minutes to present this idea, people think we're nuts," said Harry Greene, professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at Cornell. Why some scientists think reality might be a hologram. Have you ever wished that your life was actually a hologram, like Keanu Reeves’s in the The Matrix?

Why some scientists think reality might be a hologram

Craig Hogan, a particle astrophysicist at the University of Chicago and Fermilab (dedicated to the study of the science of matter, space and time), is testing an interesting theory: whether our world is really two-dimensional and only appears three-dimensional, like a hologram on a credit card. “There are a lot of mathematical ideas about how reality works, but we need experiments to guide us about what is really happening,” says Hogan in an interview with the Star. Hogan is heading a team of researchers trying to test what has become known as the holographic theory. Based on mathematical formulas and the study of black holes and string physics, some physicists have hypothesized that reality is a hologram.

“It is as if we’re virtual human beings living on a two-dimensional world,” he said. Robot adapts to injury. Lindsay France/University Photography Graduate student Viktor Zykov, former student Josh Bongard, now a professor at the University of Vermont, and Hod Lipson, Cornell assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, watch as a starfish-like robot pulls itself forward, using a gait it developed for itself. the robot's ability to figure out how it is put together, and from that to learn to walk, enables it to adapt and find a new gait when it is damaged.
