Quantum Reality

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Quantum Reality What is quantum reality? Quantum reality is the holly grail of the theoretical physics world. It is the interpretation of how our universe really works and what existence is. The idea of quantum reality has been debated, analyzed, and theorized by some of the greatest minds the human race has ever known. Men with the most extraordinary intellectual powers such as Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, and Erwin Schr´┐Żdinger worked on this puzzle without coming to a definite answer. There are eight accepted views on quantum reality, each has fundamental flaws but they are the best mankind's greatest could come up with. The eight realities are its creator's major guess on what's really going on in our world. The first reality is the Copenhagen interpretation, which basically says there is no deep reality. This interpretation comes from the Copenhagen school in Germany and was developed by Niels Bohr. Bohr said, There is no quantum world only an abstract description based on quantum physics. The Copenhagen interpretation says that the world we see is very real, but floats on a world that is not real. The everyday phenomena are not made of normal matter but an altogether different kind of being that is indescribable. ...read more.

Middle

In Everett's reality every time a measurement is taken a myriad of universes is created. In his reality for everything that can have multiple outcomes there is a universe or alternate reality that fulfills one possibility. So for every person in Everett's relaity there are trillions of universes that enact every possible outcome of our lives. The fifth quantum reality interpretation is called quantum logic. It says that the universe obeys a non-human kind of reasoning which we don't understand. He says that replacing old concepts of reality with new ones will not work. We must completely forget our way of reasoning and use quantum logic. Logic is the most basic human function. Logic governs everything we do. But sometimes what is logical to us isn't true. We must think in a new way dubbed quantum logic that is yet to be developed. This interpretation says that as soon as we throw out classic physics and completely figure out everything about quantum reality we will be able to think quantum logically and therefore understand relaity. The sixth quantum reality is called Neorealism. This interpretation says that the universe is made of ordinary objects as opposed to quantum objects. ...read more.

Conclusion

The eight versions of reality proposed by the greatest minds of all time represent the human desire t understand everything around us. None of the realities proposed have been scientifically proven and leave room for even more interpretations. The fundamental question of what reality is has been on the human mind since man began to try to understand the world around him. This question will continue to keep us thinking and dreaming of what the universe really is until its solved, if it ever is. Humans want to be a part of the world around them and understand it wholly. This can all be summed up in one paragraph by Albert Einstein. " A human being is part of the whole, called by us "Universe"; a part limited in time and space. He experiments himself, his thoughts and feelings as something from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely but striving for such achievement is, in itself, a part of the liberation and foundation for inner security." ...read more.
