I know very little about quantum physics. So, correct me if I wrong. The meaning of Schrodinger's Cat experiment is: what we observe (think / feel) is what creates reality. According to Schrodinger's Cat experiment, all things previously neutral, fifty-fifty.
In classical physics theory, all objects (including humans) are composed of atoms that are solid objects. Hence, physically we are bound to the concept of space and time. When I wanna go to America, for example, I can not suddenly appear there. I must be on a plane (space) and it took many hours (time).
But according to quantum physics, it is not like that. The same thing could have been lost and appear in two different places simultaneously because there's no concept of space and time. The reason? Because all solid objects that exist in this universe was not the solid object at all. Quantum physics discovered by Max Plank through observations of the light wave. Plank founded that the atomic particles of light (atoms categorized solids) are not continuous, but comes in the form of "little package" of energy (photons) that very small. The smallest package of energy is called Quanta.
Thus, the atom is not a solid object shaped like a ball, but a wave of energy that comes appear and disappear. In subsequent experiments, it was found that atomic particles appear and then disappear and reappear elsewhere in years later. Where did these atoms during the period of absence? This is what gave birth to the theory of the existence of a parallel world or dimension in the universe. Atoms are really just a wave of energy that can be lost in the world A, but appears in the world B.
Connected with the law of conservation of energy; the atom is not a solid object, then what form of atom is? Is it energy? The energy can not be lost. So, when Plank said "atom disappear," what does it means? What (or may I say Who) creates atom in the first place?
Does Schrodinger Cat's superposition which creates a parallel world may happen in death? Body dies, the consciousness still cohabited. Under what category does consciousness fall into? Is it a form of energy? Matter? Wave? Frequency? What happens to consciousness after death of the being? Does it become lost or just converted into some other form? What if consciousness is not a pattern, but a set of relations between different parts, in other words, not a "thing" at all? But I couldn't find any law that can explain the formation of these different parts that "create" consciousness. I couldn't relate it to anything similar to it in the universe. Is it something beyond the laws of the universe? I need to relate it to something. I must. To know the source of consciousness. And it cant be less natural than those that consist of atoms or waves or frequencies.
The universe was formed from the Big Bang. Let say, science knows how it happened, and when it happened, so we know how old the universe is, but I never heard anyone say how old was the nothingness was when it all joined together and explode … BAANG!
Human create Titanic, Airbus Beluga, Maersk Line, and other gigantic constructions. But, can we create an atom, the smallest unit of matter?
Would take an enormous amount of energy (more than we can produce with our current level of technology) and be like trying to squeeze the air back into a burst balloon and expect it to take shape. During nuclear fusion, simple atoms like hydrogen are converted into heavier atoms. That's the best we can do right now.
"I think we have made several synthetic atoms in labs, like uranium and plutonium. All you do is add more electrons and protons to create a new atom. Hydrogen has one electron and proton, Helium has two of each, etc. That's why they're a new atom."
That's not really making atoms. Just transmuting them from one kind of atom to another. A nuclear blast is destroying an atom. What I'm asking is if a reverse nuclear blast can be done. It is a lot easier to release the genie than put it back in the lamp.
If you don't have electrons and protons, you don't have atoms. There are no substitutes for electrons and protons; and can't be artificially created. You can't get more fundamental than that. And anything bigger than electrons and protons could not sustain an atom. It's not possible to neutralize the charge of an atom, that energy has to go somewhere, that's what we do when we create a nuclear blast. You can't neutralize energy, only change it's form. It's a basic principle of the energy conservation law.
To put it into perspective, the amount of energy it takes to create an atom of hydrogen (the simplest atom) is several trillion times more than the amount of energy that the sun produces in a year. Which is why the conditions for creating atoms could have only occurred close to the Big Bang where such concentrations of energy existed.
Don't be confused, we already know how to use force to dissolve an atom, or break them apart; a particle accelerator, also called an atom smasher. Dissolving atoms is called nuclear fusion. We know how much energy takes to create an atom, thanks to Einstein, but we CAN'T create that much energy. Just can't do it. Period.
Science does not say everything was created out of nothing. Science says everything was created out of an "unknown source." There is a big difference between nothing and unknown. NO ONE KNOWS, that's why it's an unknown. Since there was nothing that is currently in the universe that was outside the universe before it was born, there were no witnesses.
There must be a point where it come from.
