  • Reality, QM, Bell…

    Quantum mechanics (QM) experiments (related to Bell’s inequality) have shown that reality does NOT exist when we are not observing it. [1] This is amazing. Although at this point some objections still arise concerning this conclusion, it is really important to know that science has began thinking about concepts that have for a long time […]

  • Walking through walls, QM, Reality…

    What exactly is “real”? How do you know that your dreams are “not real”? Because your mother told you so. How do you know that the wall you see in front of you is “real”? Because you see it. And because other people see it too. But not all people see the same. And surely not […]

  • The Dark Side, reality, “events”…

    Ebb and Flow chased each other around the moon for nearly a year, peering into the interior. With dwindling fuel supplies, the twin NASA spacecraft are ready for a dramatic finish. On Monday, they will plunge — seconds apart — into a mountain near the moon’s north pole. It’s a carefully choreographed ending so that […]

  • Quantum key distribution, human minds changing “Reality”…

    The “uncrackable codes” made by exploiting the branch of physics called quantum mechanics have been for the first time sent down kilometres of standard broadband fibre. [1] This “quantum key distribution” has until now needed a dedicated fibre separate from that used to carry data. Sending faint, delicate quantum keys required dedicated, so-called “dark fibres”, […]

    Philosophy of Colours – Do they exist?

    We do not always agree about colour. Your red might be my pink or orange. Vietnamese and Korean people do not differentiate blue from green – leaves and sky are both coloured xanh in Vietnam. The late English artist and filmmaker Derek Jarman once met a friend on London’s Oxford Street and complimented him on […]
