Of course, 'walking through walls' and 'passing hands through tables' are really just a crude metaphors to help illustrate a much more complex system, as is 'Schrodinger's cat'.
No, certainly not magic. Hidden variable, yes, perhaps. I mean, there must be a hidden variable if we agree that the impossible and magical are not possible.
But, whichever way you spin it, the laws of logic cannot give us any real insight into why, in nature, seemingly paradoxical events do occur which contravene those laws (granted, at the microcosmic level).
If something is going to make sense, then it will be through reason and logic.
so, you're saying any findings in quantum physics must be de facto incomplete because they do not agree with laws of logic?
Current findings are incomplete because they do not agree with the law of identity. I think to acquire an objective understanding of particle physics, it will require ever increasing amounts of energy. A true limit to our perception. I think it makes very little sense, if any, to probe smaller than we can possibly see or to talk about something smaller than a string. I am perfectly OK with QM being a very useful tool to measure extreme metaphysical exactitude, but not as a foundation for epistemology. Since our ability to learn and gain knowledge of the world is dependent on identity.
The randomness is a demonstration of an incomplete theory, not a demonstration of the fallibility of logic.
I think it is very possible that eventually, with advancements in our understanding, say if we are able to measure the geometries of the extra dimensions in string theory, things will stop appearing random.
You make the assumption that there is not a resolution of abstraction as there would be if we were a simulation. hence the the possibilities would not be infinite but just practically infinite.
MCT I agree, absolutely. Lawrence Krauss, theoretical physicist, makes no sense to me ... until he tells stories! OH! I see what he means. Maybe I am capable of understanding you.
MCT, And, reason and logic are necessary and not sufficient to understanding nature. There is more to the story of the universe to be recognized. We have not ended our discovery with reason and logic, there is more to learn. At 75, I won't be around to bear witness to those coming discoveries, but I surely have enough from the past to keep me interested until the day of my last breath.
David, Yes, Why?
No there is an extremely low probability in quantum physics that you could walk through a wall.......it is just fantastically low and paradoxically you may not exist in the universe it occurs in. Hows that to wake you up....
I can not tolerate Chopra.........he is a bloody fool.
VeganApe, is Chopra a fool or exploiter? or manipulator?
