time illusion

anonymous asked:

Have you had a chance to read my crystal heart/fusion temple suspicions yet and If so what do you think about it and why? I send it anon I think a few days ago. Maybe more- time is but an illusion.

I skimmed it. I was planning to save it for an upcoming video where I answer peoples’ more interesting/complex questions.

  • yoosung: time is an illusion. once you realize that, you can transcend, and live in bliss
  • yoosung: *takes sip*
  • yoosung: also i have a 10 page paper due in the morning that i haven’t started
We are just waves in time and space, changing continuously, and the illusion of individuality is produced through the concatenation of the rapidly succeeding phases of existence. What we define as likeness is merely the result of the symmetrical arrangement of molecules which compose our body.

Quantum Experiment shows Time is only an Illusion.

Tiny bits of matter are shot towards a screen that has two slits in it. On the other side of the screen, a high tech video camera records where each photon lands. When scientists close one slit, the camera will show us an expected pattern. But when both slits are opened, an “interference pattern” emerges – they begin to act like waves. It means that each photon individually goes through both slits at the same time and interferes with itself, but it also goes through one slit, and it goes through the other. Furthermore, it goes through neither of them. The single piece of matter becomes a “wave” of potentials, expressing itself in the form of multiple possibilities, and this is why we get the interference pattern. How can a single piece of matter exist and express itself in multiple states, without any physical properties, until it is “measured” or “observed?” Furthermore, how does it choose which path, out of multiple possibilities, it will take? Then, when an “observer” decides to measure and look at which slit the piece of matter goes through, the “wave” of potential paths collapses into one single path. The particle goes from becoming, again, a “wave” of potentials into one particle taking a single route. It’s as if the particle knows it’s being watched. The observer has some sort of effect on the behaviour of the particle. This quantum uncertainty is defined as the ability, “according to the quantum mechanic laws that govern subatomic affairs, of a particle like an electron to exist in a murky state of possibility - to be anywhere, everywhere or nowhere at all - until clicked into substantiality by a laboratory detector or an eyeball.” According to physicist Andrew Truscott, the experiment suggests that “reality does not exist unless we are looking at it”, and that we are living in a holographic-type of universe. 

The delayed choice experiment illustrates how what happens in the present can change what happens(ed) in the past. It also shows how time can go backwards, how cause and effect can be reversed, and how the future caused the past. Scientists in France shot photons into an apparatus and showed that their actions could retroactively change something which had already happened. “If we attempt to attribute an objective meaning to the quantum state of a single system, curious paradoxes appear, like influence of future actions on past events, even after these events have been irrevocably recorded.”

Imagine a star emitting a photon billions of years ago, heading in the direction of planet Earth. In between, there is a galaxy. As a result of what’s known as “gravitational lensing,” the light will have to bend around the galaxy in order to reach Earth, so it has to take one of two paths, go left or go right. Billions of years later, if one decides to set up an apparatus to “catch” the photon, the resulting pattern would be (as explained above in the double slit experiment) an interference pattern. This demonstrates that the photon took one way, and it took the other way. One could also choose to “peek” at the incoming photon, setting up a telescope on each side of the galaxy to determine which side the photon took to reach Earth. The very act of measuring or “watching” which way the photon comes in means it can only come in from one side. The pattern will no longer be an interference pattern representing multiple possibilities, but a single clump pattern showing “one” way. What does this mean? It means how we choose to measure “now” affects what direction the photon took billions of years ago. Our choice in the present moment affected what had already happened in the past. This makes absolutely no sense, which is a common phenomenon when it comes to quantum physics. Regardless of our ability make sense of it, it’s real. This experiment also suggests that quantum entanglement exists regardless of time. Meaning two bits of matter can actually be entangled, again, in time. Time as we measure it and know it, doesn’t really exist.
