Universe = Hologram? The Universe as a Hologram by Michael Talbot Does Objective Reality Exist, or is the Universe a Phantasm? In 1982 a remarkable event took place. At the University of Paris a research team led by physicist Alain Aspect performed what may turn out to be one of the most important experiments of the 20th century. You did not hear about it on the evening news. In fact, unless you are in the habit of reading scientific journals you probably have never even heard Aspect's name, though there are some who believe his discovery may change the face of science. 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. University of London physicist David Bohm, for example, believes Aspect's findings imply that objective reality does not exist, that despite its apparent solidity the universe is at heart a phantasm, a gigantic and splendidly detailed hologram.
Lattice points visible from the origin « The Lumber Room [A test of LaTeX-to-Wordpress conversion. Bugs remain, point them out. Original PDF] Here is a problem I love. It is simple to state, and it has a solution that is not trivial, but is easy to understand. [The solution is not mine. Question. Let us first imagine that we are standing at the origin, and that the grid is that of the lattice (integer) points. The blue points are visible; the grey points are not We now want to examine the question of which pairs are visible from the origin. not visible? is not visible because the point is "in the way", and the point obscures it. is not visible precisely when there is another lattice point blocking it, which is when there is an integer pair such that . is not visible precisely when there is an integer dividing both and , and is visible when there is no such integer, i.e. when have no common factor. For two "random" integers and , what is the probability that they have no common factor? For this to happen, it must be the case that no prime number . is . to .

Our Strange Universe Space The universe can be a very strange place. While groundbreaking ideas such as quantum theory, relativity and even the Earth going around the Sun might be commonly accepted now, science still continues to show that the universe contains things you might find it difficult to believe, and even more difficult to get your head around. Theoretically, the lowest temperature that can be achieved is absolute zero, exactly ?273.15°C, where the motion of all particles stops completely. However, you can never actually cool something to this temperature because, in quantum mechanics, every particle has a minimum energy, called “zero-point energy,” which you cannot get below. One of the properties of a negative-energy vacuum is that light actually travels faster in it than it does in a normal vacuum, something that may one day allow people to travel faster than the speed of light in a kind of negative-energy vacuum bubble. Relativity of Simultaneity Antimatter Retrocausality
