Now this is really cool.

Today, Gyroduck commenting on a Journal World article, Drawing on God posted a link (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DfPepr...) from You Tube explaining a really puzzling aspect of quantum mechanics. Hop on over to view the video. Also read Gyroduck's comment linking the observations discussed in the video to prayer. Is Gyroduck right to make this connection?

That is an interesting find, but not entirely complete. I don't think the majority of physicists would claim that consciousness or observation determines reality. You should look up Schrodinger's Cat if you want an example of the paradoxes this type of thought can cause.

I've seen this. it comes from a movie called "what the bleep do we know anyway." It's a great film. I recommend it to anyone.

Thanks Logan!

I wasn't aware of the connection between quantum tunneling and light produced by the sun.

I seem to recall them as nasty and very large with creepy legs. OMG PTSD is kicking in.

Kathy,

Never had any NASTY hissing roaches; they were all nice hissing roaches. ;-)

Hey there Professor cool video. Do you still keep those nasty hissing cock roaches?

Oh my, that sprained my brain though it was totally fascinating. It's 1:02 a.m. so I'm going to bed.....I'll deal with quantum physics in the morning....maybe. Thanks for sharing this.....you're expanding my world, or are you making waves.

Hello Paul,

Okay, so I thought I could figure this out before dinner, and now my taco is cold. Very interesting stuff. One of the last heady books I've read is Einstein, which delved briefly into quantum physics. He spend the remainer of his life trying to disprove the theory in favor of his own, but never succeeded. Not sure about the connection with prayer. Instead, I think we need better ways to measure. That's my laypersons opinion anyway. Thanks for posting. Dave
