Nothing he cites is about a single state. crossing a potential well or even whatever he imagines "frequency oscillation" to be !

Symmetry is an important part of modern physics. Violations of symmetry is where interesting physics appears (look up CP violation). This is theoretical work that says that quantum gravity will not have reflection symmetry.

The mass in QM solutions for particles in potential wells have the real mass of the particle. Solve for a hydrogen atom and the real mass of an electron is used.

Writing gibberish in the form of questions does need any answers - that they are gibberish is the answer ! For example "Is Dark Matter, 4D mass?" is ignorant gibberish. Mass is a property which has no dimensions.
4D matter would be more correct but still ignorant since the universe is 4D (3 of space + 1 of time)! If you mean 4 space dimensions then we have abysmal ignorance.

oh you want crackpot? I'll give you crackpot:

What if the Mandelbrot set is connected to black holes?

Is the Mandelbrot set telling us the complex numbers within it are more than imaginary? Could those numbers be used as quantum information? Could this be the shape we would see at the core of a black hole? When a black hole feeds ..it is adding to the infinite border of the Mandelbrot set.

Side Thought: When a giant star collapses, I think it is creating a greater dimensional Manderlbrot set. Quaternions might get involved
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4EgbgTm0Bg

A 2D cross-section of the 4D quaternion Mandelbrot set as it is rotated 360 degrees in the XW-plane. Looks like a black hole
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dr_bFbn-DME

a Quaternion Mandelbrot
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-K4Lk98m38

The Mandelbrot set is now associated with bifurcation charts (cyclical events that have a negative feedback loop)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovJcsL7vyrk

Sounds like a black hole to me. It's a mechanism of bifurcation that leads to chaos.

3.57 cycles in a black hole and matter is turned to chaos ..quantum waves in superposition.

https://imgur.com/1WCOQmc

Could information being pulled into a black hole be converted to deeper define the edges of mandelbrot? Maybe it could just get caked onto the existing infinite border. Maybe this is where the holographic principle actually lives instead of the surface. Would that help the information paradox?

It seems to be a core math object between -2 and 0.25 It would give it a reason to exist.

credit for animation that I reversed: https://www.deviantart.com/pifactori...raph-340425059

extra side thought: I think all quantum waves could be the result of 3.57 cycles of bifurcation. Chaos sure seems to be the same thing as superposition.

He lies about the videos which are textbook math.Followed by his own "black hole", etc. insanity. The videos are not about black holes. The Mandelbrot set is noting to do with black holes. Deluded "3.57 cycles" gibberish.

Could QM Be Seen From This Angle? A Conversation With An Angry Person.

Why are only unobserved particles allowed to partake in quantum weirdness events?
|| (deathtopenguin5) You are using "unobserved particle" in a weird way. All particles are unobserved, we can measure certain properties of a system/particle (i.e.wavefunction) by performing a measurement.

I would say all particles are observed. Because saying "particle" means physicality is involved.

QM says that particles always partake in all quantum events.

It looks like he cut and pasted his same gibberish from another forum and the replies trying to tell him about the real world of QM.

Does This Describe How And Why A Matter Wave Becomes Physical?

Saying "Observation" is the same thing as saying "spacetime got involved"

Decoherence doesn't require a human knowing about it. Spacetime represents our reality and converts virtual quantum information to physical/real objects.
Observation/Measurement is dead. Spacetime determines if a quantum wave should be physical for our reality. Spacetime governs our reality, by handing out physical states. Time dilation demonstrates spacetime scaling reality.

The flight/path/state of a particle/wave is known before starting. If a spacetime object (detector) causes the particle to decohere but continue moving to a final panel, the particle/wave is given a physical state from the start. If the particle/wave is to pass two detectors before the final panel, the particle/wave starts as a wave ..the physical state is taken from it.

Are unobserved matter waves, virtual mass in a 4D format - without time (don't age/decay)? When it is given time it becomes physical in 3D and the 4D is used for time? The temporal dimension is where the fabric of spacetime originates, anything there is 4D by default. It isn't spatial but mass can live there as quantum waves ..virtual.
A physical state turns a wave physical before it starts moving. It won't be a wave during its flight.
4D virtual mass is unobservable. A physical state from spacetime is transforming the 4D to 3D + time.

Dark matter is unobservable, but also doesn't have the ability to be given a physical state.
Does observation/spacetime swap quantum waves by giving it a physical state and a timeline? The wave function can propagate, but the wave doesn't age until given a physical state.
Does this explain why we can never see quantum waves ..they are 4D?

Quote:
There is no reason for giving "observed" vs "unobserved" particles any special properties. At most a measurement can make the wave function for the position more narrow which seems more particle-like. At the end of the day it's always described by a wave function. Wave- particle duality is a relic from a time where we were initially trying to understand QM.

Dark matter is observable through gravity. Otherwise we wouldn't have observed it. I know that's a tautology, but it seems it needs to be pointed out.
Sure there is, unobserved particles can tunnel, entangle, and be in superposition.
Dark Matter is not directly observable, you aren't going to see a particle of it.

Quote:
"Unobserved" / "observed" is not a well-defined property of a wave function. You cannot tell whether something was observed or not observed. Observation simply changes the state of a system to an eigenstate of some observable, which is just another state.
Decoherence is the difference between observed and unobserved

Quote:
There's no way to make a measurement so a particle is literally at one point, hence they are always in superposition over positions. It's just a matter of how spread out.

And even if we did accept there was such a difference, the particle would be in this "observed" state for literally a point in time and go back to being unobserved. It wouldn't make sense.
Observed particles are not in superposition (they are not in a state that is considered quantum weirdness), they have uncertainty because the quantum field still has influence on it.
The observed state lasts from point a to b. It's given a timeline. If it hits an object too large to be influenced by the quantum field it remains observed as it is part of that object now.

Einstein failed at a unified theory because he refused to believe anything could be without a physical state from spacetime.

Unobserved QM (coherence) = Quantum Field

Duality (decoherence) = (both spacetime and the quantum field) (no quantum weirdness except for wobble ..and the quantum Zeno effect, the quantum field is still making it ageless. )

Spacetime = GR

The uncertainty principle only applies when the quantum field has influence.

Does 3D mass activate the fabric of spacetime (which is made of 4D virtual mass)? The bending of spacetime is causing what appears to us as dark matter? Does it take a certain amount of mass to activate? Is that why there is a quantum/classical boundary?

She got close to discovering this https://www.theguardian.com/science/...-energy-riddle

Observation not being a thing is kind of a big deal. Spacetime gives a physical state and time to quantum waves. Spacetime represents our reality, it governs if something should be real or not. Observation doesn't have anything to do with it.

Black holes are a hole to the fourth dimension. I think it is a 4D virtual object. The information paradox is satisfied because the mass it eats is going to the fourth dimension as virtual mass. You can't have a physical objects in the time dimension.

It allows separate frames of reference to scale ..we know it is doing this because the speed of light is the same in time dilation volumes. Gravitational waves fluctuate the scale of reality as they pass. It makes cosmic voids expand and black holes contract.

Black hole is started by a giant star collapsing in on itself into the 4th dimension using the inverse cube law. You would need the force of a collapsing star to interact with the fourth dimension ..or gravitational waves. Gravitational waves warp spacetime in the same way time dilation happens.

Is gravity considered weak because mass from 3D objects that we can interact with and see is barely anything to a 4D spacetime fabric?

Quote:
The gravitational force of a point mass drops off as 1/r2 . As Sean stated above, this becomes 1/r{2+N} where N is the number of extra dimensions you are adding to a theory. In layman's terms this is because there are now more dimensions for the force to operate in, so the amount of force is more "spread out" for a given distance away.
The gravitational force originates from the extra dimension ..it was already "spread out" before the test.

Spacetime originates in the fourth dimension ..that is the only part Einstein didn't see.

Spacetime scales when it bends. Reality is scaling. We already know about time dilation ..but a meter stick in one time scale (region of space) will shrink or expand in another time region. It will still be a meter no matter how much it scales, because, for that region ..that is the reality of what a meter length is. This is why the speed of light does not change.

We know spacetime is everywhere but not enacted everywhere because it's possible for quantum waves to go unobserved.

Extra bonus idea (but don't judge me on it): The fabric of spacetime is a little more interesting than GR defines. We now know spacetime is enacted based the amount of mass at the quantum/classical boundary. It isnít enacted everywhere but can be naturally with a certain amount of mass. A supermassive black hole at the center of a galaxy starts the core gravity well. It isnít a strong enough well to hold the entire galaxy in but planets/stars daisy chain off the core gravity well. When an object has enough mass to enact spacetime, it becomes accessible to the universal spacetime net/fabric and will flow as gravity tells it to. Spacetime objects on the outer edges are going to experience extreme time dilation and move quickly. The amount of dark matter guessed to be in the universe is vastly overblown.

If it isn't daisy chains, its varying depths of bent spacetime within a galaxy. Gravity wells inside larger gravity wells.

You are failing to see the significance of a dimension devoted to observation (reality) ...making things physical/real. Spacetime not being involved in quantum weirdness events is a big deal, you can't brush it off like it's nothing.
I think the fabric of spacetime is made of 4D virtual mass. Cosmic voids don't have any mass to activate it so the fabric collapses in on itself causing voids to expand.

particle: 1a : a minute quantity or fragment. b : a relatively small or the smallest discrete portion or amount of something. 2 : any of the basic units of matter and energy (such as a molecule, atom, proton, electron, or photon
particle(My Addition): If smaller than 0.3 micrometers, it is NOT automatically observed (given a physical state) ..unless touching an object that is larger than 30 micrometers.

wave: digital form of a particle, unobservable
wave(My Addition): Not real or physical. Can hold mass as a variable. Ghost.

wave function: A wave function in quantum physics is a mathematical description of the quantum state of an isolated quantum system. The wave function is a complex-valued probability amplitude, and the probabilities for the possible results of measurements made on the system can be derived from it.
wave function(My Addition): This is mostly for describing waves ..not a particle in duality. I suspect diffraction is directly involved and would considerably refine probabilities. A particle in duality isn't going to be in superposition.

coherence: Quantum coherence deals with the idea that all objects have wave-like properties. If an object's wave-like nature is split in two, then the two waves may coherently interfere with each other in such a way as to form a single state that is a superposition of the two states.
coherence(My Addition): remained a wave

decoherence: Quantum decoherence is the loss of quantum coherence. In quantum mechanics, particles such as electrons are described by a wave function, a mathematical representation of the quantum state of a system; a probabilistic interpretation of the wave function is used to explain various quantum effects.
decoherence(My Addition): given a physical state, is now in a duality mode

superposition: The principle of quantum superposition states that if a physical system may be in one of many configurations—arrangements of particles or fields—then the most general state is a combination of all of these possibilities, where the amount in each configuration is specified by a complex number.
superposition(My Addition): Can occur if only a wave, no duality.

mass: The classical view of mass is that it quantifies the amount of substance and is a kinematical parameter. ... However, we emphasize that the most abundant component of matter - Nucleons - derives its mass largely as a consequence of quantum effects of (color gluonic QCD) radiation
mass(My Addition): physical mass is observed/real (energy with a physical state). virtual mass is not real/physical, a quantum wave with a variable for mass.

time: A chronon is a proposed quantum of time, that is, a discrete and indivisible "unit" of time as part of a hypothesis that proposes that time is not continuous.
time(My Addition): the frame rate of spacetime, quantum waves do not use it.

spacetime: In physics, spacetime is any mathematical model which fuses the three dimensions of space and the one dimension of time into a single four-dimensional manifold. Spacetime diagrams can be used to visualize relativistic effects, such as why different observers perceive where and when events occur differently.
spacetime(My Addition): Is what General Relativity describes. I suspect it is an analog simulation with a frame rate. The Quantum field doesn't use it including cosmic voids because there isn't enough mass to enact it.

matter: physical substance in general, as distinct from mind and spirit; (in physics) that which occupies space and possesses rest mass, especially as distinct from energy.
matter(My Addition): virtual mass with a physical state. It is real/physical.

state: In quantum physics, a quantum state is the state of an isolated quantum system. A quantum state provides a probability distribution for the value of each observable, i.e. for the outcome of each possible measurement on the system.
state(My Addition): quantum waves don't have a state ..that job belongs to spacetime

Matter-Wave: Matter waves are a central part of the theory of quantum mechanics, being an example of wave–particle duality. All matter exhibits wave-like behavior. For example, a beam of electrons can be diffracted just like a beam of light or a water wave. ... Matter waves are referred to as de Broglie waves.
Matter-Wave(My Addition): Are not in a duality mode. It isn't physical. It doesn't have a physical state. "Duality-Wave" needs to be a thing. A Duality-Wave would be a particle moving on the path of a wave.

Quote:
By adding the second line ("my addition") it seems as if you think the first line is some sort of standard definition. But it isn't. That is just something you have made up as well. And it makes no sense. If you going to classify anything as "digital" it would be the particle, which is quantised. And the wave is more like an "analog" description (a continuous waveform). But the terms "analog" and "digital" don't really make any sense here.
You would rather a wave have the definition of only the wave function? Digital ..Virtual ..same thing, the point is that it is unobservable. Spacetime makes a digital wave, analog.

Quote:
And you say that the wave is not observable but we can perform many experiments to observe the wave behaviour of particles.
Observable after the final panel (after the fact), doesn't mean anything. The particle only gets a physical state if observed during its flight. "Observation" in your scenario is not causing decoherence ..until the wave collapse of the final panel.

Quote:
Saying "not real or physical" doesn't really mean anything unless you define what you mean by "real" or "physical". For example, you go on to say it can "hold mass" which means it must be measurable; which sounds like a definition of "real" to me.

It is not clear what "holding mass" means, anyway. Just another made-up concept.
And then you say "ghost" with no further explanation. Meaningless
Real/Physical = observed. The object isn't going to tunnel or be in superposition.
An unobserved matter wave can have mass and still tunnel ..that means it can hold mass as a variable.
"Ghost" give us humans a way to grasp what unobservable particles are.


Virtual Mass = Holographic Mass

We know dark matter exists because we observe dark matter! That is a fact. Thus "Dark matter is unobservable" is an insane lie.

A deluded "Einstein failed at a unified theory because..." lie. Everyone has failed at a unified theory because there are fundamental incompatibles' between QFT and GR. pittsburghjoe's deluded world salad will not fix those.

Usual "unicorn + fairy dust = unified theory" insanity.

An ignorant delusion that dark matter is not directly observable. Dark matter is currently as directly observable as stars. We observe stars because they emit light. We observe dark matter because it "emits" gravity. We have not detected stars (and never will) or dark matter yet in labs but that does not mean stars or dark matter do not exist.

Digital is ... digital (of fingers in his head?)! The Holographic principle is that a "description of a volume of space can be thought of as encoded on a lower-dimensional boundary to the region". Holographic images are usually analog.

May be stupidity about 13 February 2020 pittsburghjoe: A lie about what he lied about: "Dark matter is unobservable". This is the real world fact that we can observe dark matter (his first lie) and that we may be able to detect dark matter in labs.

Really deluded crackpots have the stupidity that directly detected in labs is a requirement in science. It is a nice to have. We have never had a star in the lab so according to them stars do not exist !

Right, the holograms in the holographic principle are analog :P

A delusion that there are actual holograms in the holographic principle (even with a ). The point is that the word digital does not mean the word holographic to anyone who has learned English or can look up what they mean. Thus

Do we have proof decohered condenced wave packets are still waves?

I want the math of a decohered "wave" attempting to tunnel. You get it by letting the wave functions cancel out leaving you with a single state. The holographic mass of a wave (not a particle in duality) ..is not physical. It doesn't have to answer to forces like a particle in duality.

Does a matter wave travel like a corkscrew?

A wave packeta collection of waves by definition - the word wave is in his question ! No waves = no wave packet!
A delusion of imaginary "decohered condenced" wave packets.

14 February 2020 pittsburghjoe: Lies about my posts which are useful and helpful.
Most people will read pittsburghjoe's posts and see that he is writing ignorant and deluded nonsense. for those few people who do not see how deluded the posts are, there are my posts that often explain how they are deluded.

Some of his posts have the actually insane delusion that a theory of everything is an incoherent sentence !
Some of his posts are just gibberish stringing together scientific words that he obviously does not understand.
Some of his posts are his personal fantasies with no physical foundation.
Some of his posts are blatant lies about textbook science.
Most of this ignorance, fantasy, delusions and lies are repeated again and again even after the science is given to him. Thus: 450 items of ignorance, fantasy, delusion, by pittsburghjoe since 4 September 2019 !
It is this denial of the real world that makes it useless to try to help him and thus I and probably other poster here are not doing so. He has shown himself to be just another Internet physics crackpot who refuses to learn even what physics is!

Is there proof that a decohered wave is still a wave? I know I said "wave", but I suspect it isn't anymore at that point. The quantum field still has influence on the now physical particle. It doesn't have the ability to perform quantum weirdness events.

A green wave is a wave. A square wave is a wave. A "decohered" wave is a wave. etc.

What makes his question insane is he has no idea what "decohered" means for a wave. Coherence has a meaning in physics for multiple wave sources. Reducing coherence is making the wave from the separate sources less in step.
He may be trying to express yet another ignorant delusion about quantum decoherence which is the reduction of coherence between different quantum states.

Wave–particle duality is an experimental fact measured at any time in the lifetime of a particle.

Nope, there are cases for it to only be a wave. If it is going to make it from point A to B without decoherence it will remain only a wave until the final panel.

The information that you present is worth slightly less than the paper that it is written on.
