    You should note that Schrodinger’s thought experiment was not meant to show
    that a thing can be in two states at once (in this case, the cat being both
    dead and alive), instead it was supposed to be a reductio ad absurdum
    argument against the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum theory — an
    attempt to show the paradoxical (and absurd) results of this branch of
    quantum mechanics.

    Just so people know, Schrödinger did not suggest that the cat was in a
    superposition of alive and dead, he used the thought experiment to show
    that the idea of quantum mechanics being applicable to the non-quantum
    world was ridiculous. The cat IS either alive or dead logically and
    literally, which is why you cannot reasonably try to use the same rules
    that apply to the quantum level as the macro level and vice versa.

    TLDR?; Schrödinger’s cat shows you cannot use quantum physics to understand
    the world on a non-quantum scale.

    If I were to quote Mel Gibson, shut up and give me a … you know what.
    so sexist huh

    With quantum entanglement, there is no travel. One IS another.

    So, not giant balloons?

    I forgot sense of humor.

    Women are not allowed to be smart,attractive and like playing video games,
    jane you must return to where you came from before you cause a rift in the
    space time continuum.

    But isn’t Time travel in Bioshock infinite just an extension of the
    multiverse theory? I mean, instead of opening a “tear” in a parallell,
    simultaneous world where it’s still 1912, they open a tear in a world that
    started sometime before their own, hence “shifted” some years into the
    future? Otherwise they’d be swimming in paradoxes, wouldn’t they?

    The closest thing you could get with time travel, I think would be
    perception of the past en future, but not interaction.

  11. Jageby20 January, 2014 at 4:50 pm

    But is there is an infinite amount of universes, and tears transport you
    between those, then it is not time travel, Just another universe but that
    universe has different year than the one you came from.

    quantum entanglement does not violate relativity because no information can
    be exchanged using this.

  13. Limbo12 January, 2014 at 6:07 am

    wow

    So this is where Jane has been hiding 😛

    Whoa harsh science and future tripping man…u should like chill and take
    it slow ya know

    Cute girl talking science. The best way to mesmerize a geeky guy…

    If there are infinite realities, then in one reality there would be
    children all experts on musical insturments without any experience. Another
    reailty all people would be called Steve (girls and females). Another
    reality Comstock would be a good guy with 7 kids and Elizabeth would have
    been fine. Wouldnt this cause a paradox of Elizabeth in that universe
    travelling into the timeline where she would try to stop the other
    Elizabeths trying to kill Comstock.
    While we are on that matter, while does killing one Comstock killl almost
    all of them (the ending eludes to at least one survived)?? Wouldn’t it
    affect only one Elizabeth??

    Does killing all Comstocks then have an implication of he saved someone
    elses life then they would also cease to exist?? Would humanity end, as a
    result of the fall of one man being erased from existence then in an
    infinte reality all people would have been erased because someone out there
    was trying to eradicate a bad version (and in turn all good versions) of
    you??

    Yeah…Infinite isn’t really scientific. These things are old news to
    anyone who knows of them, and quite frankly, the woman doesn’t know much
    about them. Quite frankly, QM is criticized as being unrealistic, and
    Richard Feynman was quoted saying: “I don’t think anyone understands
    quantum mechanics”. In reality, it is a hotly contested topic, and the idea
    of M-theory is more cartoonish than realistic. Naturally, we’re not getting
    real people doing the talking, just a British woman gushing her
    fangirlness.

    And I learned something today.

    Spoilery video is spoilery. Still awesome though. She even sounds like
    Lutece. O_O

    For this #ScienceSunday – check out this interesting video that looks into
    the ‘science’ behind Bioshock Infinite and how it stacks up:

    [MAJOR SPOILERS IN VIDEO]

    IF you’ve completed the AMAZING Bioshock Infinite, you may find this
    discussion of the real science behind Columbia’s many paradoxes. Perhaps if
    I found some of the Voxophones featured in the video some things might have
    made more sense. Well, I can always (and probably will) play through it
    again.

    game are getting more and more real or is it the other way ;)
