Thumbs down An idiotic "holds up" lie when this is repeated insanely ignorant gibberish

The insanely ignorant delusion of gibberish being "= Spacetime (General Relativity)" is obvious to anyone who can read.

I may be wrong. He can show this by linking to his detailed, coherent analysis of the Delayed-choice quantum eraser, a coherent description of his theory and the predictions of his theory for the experiment.

The only way the first entangled particle knows if the partner will ever be observed is if the state is known for the life of both entangled particles.

The blatant lie is "only way" because QM has an explanation based on physics and math that is not his ignorant fantasy !

The blatant lie is 1 sentence not his detailed, coherent analysis of the Delayed-choice quantum eraser, a coherent description of his theory and the predictions of his theory for the experiment.

So, let me get this straight.

You've killed duality by having light as a wave, unless it's observed, in which case you have duality.

Is that correct?

It might interest you that there are valid interpretations of quantum mechanics that do not involve observation at all? That should tell you that you are on a dead end with your concept of "observation" that in any case does not seem to be identical to the accepted meaning in the Copenhagen interpretation.

You are also off with your definition of "physical", just like your idea of an intelligent spacetime that keeps track if particles are going to be observed, or not, is ridiculous.

State replaced observation. I only use that word now for recognition.
No intelligence involved in knowing states.

It's natural because a state change gets spacetime involved. A second state change causes spacetime to be ignored again.

I'm curious what facts this idea is meant to explain. There are plenty of facts that you are having to go through various convolutions (mostly unsuccessfully) to avoid contradicting, but what facts are motivating this idea?

I want a bridge between the large and the small. Now we have one.

Unobserved(stateless/unphysical) Quantum Waves + State (physicality) = Spacetime (General Relativity)

No, you don't get to shift the burden of proof. It's your idea that is being scrutinised in this thread. Since you now agree that duality always exists in quantum phenomena (eg the wave theory is necesary for accurately modelling the outcome of the two slit experiment, whether or not fringes form), you don't have anything left that comports with reality. Oh - you said that it's pure waves and no particles if unobserved and unobservable. But, by definition, if it's unobservable, you can't know that or test it, it's just a fairy tale or some odd branch of metaphysics. Not physics. We're done here.

You don't have a theory.

It doesn't even rise to the level of hypothesis.

It makes no predictions, explains nothing, and adds levels of complication where none are necesarry.

There's no maths, no evidence, no attempt at actual science, and frankly, no point.

It's based on wishful thinking, rampant misunderstanding, and a huge dose of Dunning-Kruger.

But by all means keep going. It's utterly harmless, and amusing to watch.

The higgs field is nothing special. It's just another field in the Quantum Field that interacts with Spacetime when the object needs to be physical.

or should I say it's a bridge to the simulation? Spacetime is an analog simulation built on the quantum field. It doesn't make any sense for light to have a speed limit. Spacetime must have a frame rate.

If by "expert" you mean "former drip," you're 100 % accurate.

Seriously, cartoon physics makes more sense than what you're peddling. You're the guy who's never played baseball who nonetheless walks out onto the field and starts explaining to the players and umps that they're playing the game all wrong.

There's no reason to get snippy with Ferd because they demonstrated your theory better than you've been able to do so far.

Black holes spaghettify matter and turn its physicality state off. Dark matter is matter that doesn't have the ability to have a physical state.

Sounds like when in the cartoons, the writers will have to indicate a stroke of genius, and they just have the character recite that one line about an isosceles triangle really fast.

As in, it's what a smart character written by someone who isn't that smart sounds like.

False. I'm not 0.3 μm, yet I have a physical state.

If you mean smaller than 0.3 μm, you're still wrong.

From the first page of Google results:


From https://blissair.com/how-small-one-m...hy-matters.htm
Quote:
Here are some particles and their typical sizes:

Pollen, mold, plant spores: 7 – 70 μm
Anthrax spore: 6 μm
Dust mite waste: 5 – 20 μm
Hairspray: 3 – 10 μm
Large bacteria: 1 – 20 μm
Auto emissions: 1 – 3 μm
Lead dust: 1 – 3 μm
Fungal spores: 0.50 – 7 μm
Cooking smoke/odors: 0.30 – 1 μm
Paint pigments: 0.30 – 1 μm
Dust: 0.20 – 8 μm
Pet dander: 0.15 – 8 μm
Small bacteria: 0.08 – 1 μm
Tobacco smoke: 0.008 – 0.6 μm
Viruses: 0.005 – 0.01 μm
Volatile organic compounds: Less than 0.001 μm
Another list here: https://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/p...zes-d_934.html

From: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orders...)#1_micrometre
1 μm – length of a lysosome
1-2 μm – anthrax spore[58]
2 μm – length of an average E. coli bacte

Yet I have provided a small list of things that are smaller than 0.3 μm that have a physical state. Your claim is now false.
