New Mind-blowing Experiment Confirms That Reality Doesn’t Exist If You Are Not Looking at It

New Mind-blowing Experiment Confirms That Reality Doesn’t Exist If You Are Not Looking at It
According to a well-known theory in quantum physics, a particle’s behavior changes depending on whether there is an observer or not. It basically suggests that reality is a kind of illusion and exists only when we are looking at it. Numerous quantum experiments were conducted in the past and showed that this indeed might be the case. Now, physicists at the Australian National University have found further evidence for the illusory nature of reality. They recreated the John Wheeler’s delayed-choice experiment and confirmed that reality doesn’t exist until it is measured, at least on the atomic scale. Thought-provoking findings Some particles, such as photons or electrons, can behave both as particles and as waves. The results of the Australian scientists’ experiment, which were published in the journal Nature Physics, show that this choice is determined by the way the object is measured, which is in accordance with what quantum theory predicts. “It proves that measurement is everything.

Tesla vs. Einstein: The Ether & the Birth of the New Physics Marc J. Seifer, New DawnWaking Times Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) was an electrical inventor, well known as a competitor of arch rival Tom Edison. Where Edison’s inventions include the light bulb, the microphone in the telephone and the phonograph, Tesla’s inventions include fluorescent lighting, the AC hydroelectric power system and wireless communication.

New Research Confirms Consciousness Survives the Death of the Body The greatest question of all time may very well be, ‘what happens to us when we die?’ While many, individuals, religions and spiritual traditions have come to their own conclusions about the ever-lasting nature of the soul, it takes a great deal of faith to be certain about the after life. To the scientific mind, this won’t do, and the question looks a little more like, ‘what happens to human consciousness after clinical death?’ A team of researchers at Southampton University in the UK recently conducted one of the largest ever studies about what happens to consciousness after death.

m.disclose June 20, 2015 - Most people ‘in the know’ realize that NASA is just part of the military industrial complex, but a recent open admission on mainstream news that “there are indications of alien life” is likely the beginning of a bid to get your undivided attention before full-forced disclosure ensues. Most people already believe what NASA Chief Scientist Ellen Stofan states: “I think we’re going to have strong indications of life beyond Earth within a decade . . .I think we’re going to have definitive evidence within 20-30 years.” It isn’t going to take that long if we open our eyes. Stofan goes on to say: “We’re on the verge of things that people have wondered about for millennia.

Today's temperatures at the North Pole are scaring scientists around the world. The North Pole is famous for many things. 24-hour darkness, polar bears, and of course, being the home of Santa Claus. One thing it's definitely not known for, though, is balmy, casual, "Hey, how cold is it? Do you think I need a light jacket?" type temperatures. The north pole is freezing. 5 Thought-Provoking Quantum Experiments Showing That Reality Is an Illusion No 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 Marianne Williamson advocates for mindful activism In this election season, a yoga studio is encouraging patrons to get off the mat and into citizen activism. On Saturday, Wanderlust Hollywood is hosting "Mindful America: Creating a Mindful Policy For a Healthy, Prosperous America." The six experts on the panel will pose answers to a provocative question: How can the personal practices of mindful living — living sustainably, buying organically and cultivating personal spirituality — be applied to public issues such as healthcare, energy and incarceration? The Forbidden Secrets of Water: How Water Can Raise Your Frequency Flickr Commons: Image provided by Frédéric Dupont Is there more to water than meets the eye? If you study water beyond conventional methods, you may realize that water is intelligent in nature and has its own way of communicating with other elements. Do you need proof of this?

Why 2015 may be remembered as a transformative year for how we get energy Construction takes place at Roha Dyechem solar plant at Bhadla, north of Jodhpur in the western Indian state of Rajasthan. (Money Sharma/AFP/Getty Images) The United States is on track to shut down a record amount of coal-fired power plants in 2015. At the same time, it has installed a record amount of new solar energy capacity.

Thermodynamic Threesomes: A Tale of Entangled Triplets Fiber optic cables were used by researchers at The University of Waterloo to beam three entangled photons thousands of feet apart, proving they could communicate simultaneously. (Photo: Shutterstock) On this day of what would’ve been Albert Einstein’s 136th Birthday, I thought it was fitting to write about what he coined “spooky action at a distance” or what we now refer to as Quantum Entanglement. Simply put, Quantum Entanglement occurs when two sub-atomic particles become entangled, the action of one can ultimately then be pre-determined by the action of the other, even if you separate the two by millions of light years. But can more than two particles become entangled? The simple answer is yes.

Video Makes Visible California's Unseen Natural Gas Disaster More than two months after a Southern California natural gas leak began spewing as much as 128,000 pounds of planet-warming methane into the atmosphere every hour, the source of the rupture has been located, officials said Monday. But California regulators and Southern California Gas Company executives say it could take several more months to plug the leak, prompting some environmentalists to compare the blowout to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The rupture, which began Oct. 23 at the company’s huge underground natural gas storage facility 20 miles northeast of Los Angeles, has forced the evacuation of some 1,700 homes in nearby Porter Ranch. As of Dec. 22, the leak had emitted an estimated 1.6 million metric tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, according to a report from the California Air Resources Board. Unlike the petroleum that fouled the beaches and waters of the Gulf Coast after the Deepwater Horizon spill, natural gas is invisible.

Quantum Light Beam Solves Mazes, with a Little Help from Classical Noise The emerging discipline of quantum biology is attempting to understand the role quantum mechanics plays in the processes of life, such as photosynthesis—the capture of sunlight by plants and its conversion into stored energy. One phenomenon that physicists have observed is the transfer of energy across giant protein matrices that appears to occur extremely rapidly with close to 100 percent efficiency. These matrices are like giant mazes so the question is how energy can find its way across the structures before it dissipates. The classical solution to this problem is to explore the maze with a series of random hops. But this process would take so long that most of the energy would be lost.

Disbelieve it or Not, Ancient History Suggests That Atheism is as Natural to Humans as Religion People in the ancient world did not always believe in the gods, a new study suggests – casting doubt on the idea that religious belief is a “default setting” for humans. “Early societies were far more capable than many since of containing atheism within the spectrum of what they considered normal – Tim Whitmarsh” Despite being written out of large parts of history, atheists thrived in the polytheistic societies of the ancient world – raising considerable doubts about whether humans really are “wired” for religion – a new study suggests. The claim is the central proposition of a new book by Tim Whitmarsh, Professor of Greek Culture and a Fellow of St John’s College, University of Cambridge.
