    Default Quantum weirdness

    So finally I make the step. What are your opinions and most of all what do you know about Dr.Quantum's physics lecture about the "double slit experiment":

    The destructive part of the interference pattern... that's what convinces me.

    Otherwise, I would say things like, "well the particles could be spinning in weird ways, etc."

    Also, I am not sure what you want to discuss.

    If you're looking for an opportunity to simply discuss and wonder about quantum mechanics and the sheer oddness of it. I'm all for it.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    I have not much to discuss, yet; I am currently reading some mathematics about QED. I tend to fall asleep, while reading but it is not the topic that is uninteresting, it is the mass amount of text .

    The Book is from the Feynman Lectures , Part 3.

    I posted this thread to see, if someone else is intrested in the topic and knows some intresting theories already. If I can help it and not fall asleep during reading, I will be up to speed in 2 or 3 weeks

    I consider the double-slit experiment, from my non-mathematical background, very simply one more in a growing series of experiments which are warning us that some of the emphasis in physics needs to be shifted to biology and neuroscience in order to understand what happens when we perceive 'physical' events... it's also vindicating some of Kantian theory (along with other similar philosophical theories of the past).

    It's undeniably weird, but take a look at history. Things tend to turn out rational after all.

    What are people's ideas for why wave functions collapse under observation?

    well, if it didn't, we wouldn't have two vital things: Continuity and a Static Fabric to swim in. Everything would be a wonderous mess

    I *am* quantum weirdness, but it has nothing to do with physics. If you have question regarding this topic, feel free to ask.

    Okay, please continue....
