Quantum Learning – Seeing is Believing

One of the most curious aspects of Quantum theory is the ‘split screen’ experiment, without getting too technical – the upshot is that light behaves like a particle or a wave, and that the observer, by the act of observing, determines the outcome of its behaviour. Niels Bohr, the celebrated Nobel Prize winner physicist said “Anyone who is not shocked by Quantum mechanics, has not understood it.”
The observer determines the outcome, just by observing. The philosophical implications are enormous, our observation of the universe by implication means it responds to our thoughts.
Philosophers, and Physicists may be interested in creativity, in the sense that an enquiring mind can see things in a completely different light. Penicillin was just a bit of strange mold, but once it was realised that it had beneficial effects – its ‘observed’ credentials made it’s significance change forever. It could never be the same again, the same is true of creativity, once observed in a particular way. I am reminded of the saying “If we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change” This is a creative way of thinking, a new way of looking at something and deriving a new meaning from the experience. Surely Newton viewing (with new insight) the apple as it fell from the tree was itself a creative act, he saw something new – in something that was trivial, and concluded something quite profound.
This is creativity, imagination without the blocks of conformity. Imagination that can see connections that were hitherto not seen.

    The double slit experiment is incredible. To think a particle can stop behaving as a wave just by observing it is mind blowing. Great site John very thought provoking :-)

      Thank you Nick. Not many people perhaps understand the significance of the double split experiment. If we realised that we could influence outcomes of events just by thinking about it – we could all be lifted to greater prospects.
      ‘The Secret’ by Rhonda Byrne is an interesting read in that it uses the power of thinking to make things happen. Might be worth checking out.

    I have to express appreciation to this writer just for rescuing me from this type of trouble. Because of scouting throughout the internet and coming across advice which were not powerful, I was thinking my life was gone. Being alive without the solutions to the issues you’ve sorted out as a result of your guide is a critical case, as well as those that might have in a negative way damaged my career if I hadn’t noticed your web site. Your personal training and kindness in controlling the whole lot was useful. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I hadn’t encountered such a step like this. I am able to at this point look forward to my future. Thanks so much for the impressive and amazing guide. I won’t be reluctant to refer the sites to any individual who wants and needs tips on this matter.
