I know this is old hat but I really still do not get the "observer" aspect of the double slit experiment
The act of "observing", it is always said, collapses the wave function. The implications of this can be pretty extreme. I prefer that there's a more boring explanation.
So I have some dumb questions
1. What is defined as an "observer"?
2. What happens if detectors are used but the results are discarded or never revealed to an "observer"?
3.. Basically my question is is it REALLY the act of "observing" that is causing this collapse, which seems metaphysical, or is it something much more mundane like the interaction between a detector and the particle causes the collapse, not because it's been observed, simply because of the interaction/detection/collision/whatever

Basically I'm pretty confident the universe doesn't give a crap about "observers" and there's a much more boring explanation, but smarter people than me have struggled to prove this apparently. Or I just don't know.

The evidence against me is the Delayed Choice Quantum Eraser. I've been reading about it, and what I keep reading is things like results changing depending on when an "observer" has "information" presented to them. The implication is the actual act of a human learning or viewing the information is what causes the change, and I hate this, it's clearly wrong. Yet the studies I see never clarify the actual physical acts behind what an observation is, what information is, how it works. Like if a computer records the information, but deletes the data, is that a different result than if it saves the data and shows a human?

WHY WHY WHY are people so fucking stupid about this experiment?!!!

You can not "observe" are particle with out disturbing it.

READ this well:
Disturbing a particle leads to a different result than not disturbing it.

Replace the unbelievably stupid term they chose for this disturbance called "observation" and the experiment is completely understandable.
>>
>>11307739
OK, how does a photon "disturb" the detector as it passes by?
>>
>>11305926
The "wave function" is an abstraction of a pilot wave.
A particle has definite position and momentum.
The trajectory gets altered by electromagnetic fields and gravitational waves.
We can't yet account for the fields and waves, or even measure both position and velocity, so we only have probabilistic models.
Prove me wrong

Glacier Park in Montana Set to Remove ‘Glaciers Will All Be Gone By 2020’ Signs
https://www.kpax.com/news/local-news/flathead-county/glacier-national-park-to-remove-all-glaciers-will-be-gone-by-2020-signs
GLACIER NATIONAL PARK — Glacier National Park is removing signs that state all glaciers will be melted by 2020.

Park spokeswoman Gina Kurzmen explained that since the early 2000s scientists have reflected and analyzed data stating glaciers would recede by 2020.

She told MTN News that the latest research shows shrinking, but in ways much more complex than what was predicted. Because of this, the park must update all signs around the park stating all glaciers will be melted by 2020.

The indoor and wayside exhibits have been updated throughout the park including at the Apgar, Logan Pass and St. Mary visitor centers, according to Kurzmen. She also told MTN News that an exterior panel at St. Mary still displays out-of-date language but is planned to be replaced later this year.

Kurzmen says Glacier National Park will work with the US Geological Survey to monitor the glaciers and update the remainder of the signs as necessary.

No one claims it’s “footage”. It’s a CGI rendition created using images of the surface. You’re actively lying. Why?

This was presented to the public as "real". They're lying to everyone. The image itself is not even a PHOTOGRAPH but a CGI recreation of the surface using heightmap data the probe supposedly collected.

Prochlorperazine 5mg

I use it to silence the negative thoughts, anxiety, emotional imbalance- and focusing purely on work. It hasn’t shown any negative effects on cognition yet, although it's a mild sedative. And withdrawal will be a bit disorienting, random bouts of aggression, that's all.

It's an antipsychotic, though I'm not schizo(even if I am one, I would be the last one to know), it works quite well in stabilizing the mind, though I don't recommend self medicating like faggots like myself, anything could have gone wrong but thankfully it worked wonders. brain drugs are serious business, so it's up to your doctor. I just want to add I've found it mostly safe and effective.

TLDR go to doctor, there is hope.

but you're forgetting about the quantum state of matter when you consider the background radiation state of the universe, and the fact that you think there is a bunch of missing matter is that you're treating every subatomic particle as having mass instead of recognizing that it could be in a wave state until directly observed, and thus there is no need for the conjecture of "dark matter" unless you presume a consciousness that is capable of observing the entire universe at once.

I mean, how can there be any theoretical space in which there is literally no presence of any massous particle throughout all conceivable time and distance?

And how could such a theoretical universe coexist with one in which the observation of a wave-function renders it a particle for a self-aware and sentient consciousness?
>>
>>11308069

It seems like both would have to coexist without any interaction at all, doesn't it?

I guess they do, though. I mean, it seems to me like the particle universe of what we see, hear, touch, taste, and smell (our empirical senses cannot exist without the existence of particles, after all) coexists with the wave universe of what we sense and imagine beyond what we can physically experience. Trying to identify exactly where the break occurs between what we can imagine and what we can experience is a bit like trying to identify a Planck length, though. And outside of a Planck length, it's just an infinitely complex probability of which eigenstate ("when the wavefunction collapses because the position of an electron has been determined, the electron's state becomes an "eigenstate of position", meaning that its position has a known value, an eigenvalue of the eigenstate of position." (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Introduction_to_eigenstates)) was observed at which moment and by whom.

Of course, even if its position has a known value, that would have to mean that the velocity is an unknown value, so basically the theoretical "eigenvalue of the eigenstate" does us no better to evaluate than the schmuckenvalue of the schmuckenstate because the position of the observer has everything to do with how an electron is determined and how its value is determined.
>>
>>11308101

Sort of seems like one would have to overcome the law of the excluded middle and consider the non-binary state of a conditional statement as being simultaneously true and false.

If only humans could not already do that, but had already constructed machines that were capable of handling such calculations, like some sort of "quantum computer" they could team up with or something.

What a wacky idea, right? Kek.

"Gustav Holst was born on September 21, 1874 in Pittville, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, England as Gustavus Theodore von Holst. He was married to Isobel Harrison. He died on May 25, 1934 in Ealing, Middlesex, London, England.
Spouse (1)
Isobel Harrison (23 June 1901 - 25 May 1934) ( his death) ( 1 child)
Trivia (3)
Brother of Ernest Cossart and uncle of Valerie Cossart.
Known for his orchestral suite, 'The Planets'.
Around 1931, Holst was asked to compose music for a film. He attended a conference about the film, which was to be called The Bells (1931), based on a book by J.R. Ware, titled 'The Polish Jew'. The directors wanted Holst to finish the composition within a month so that recording could start. The music was to contain, "a storm prelude, a wedding feast and some dance music", and was to be written for small orchestra. When he was done composing, the recording sessions soon took place. Holst was very disappointed when the directors asked him to make changes in the scores. He became even more upset when he viewed a private screening of the movie and could not hear anything that was recognizable in his music, the recording and speakers both being so poor. The film was scheduled to be released in 1931, but in the end it was sold off to an American company to be premiered in the USA. Mysteriously enough, it was never released and neither the company nor film can found. The scores which Holst composed have also disappeared, and biographer Michael Short writes of Holst, "the only person who could remember them was an official of Associated Sound Films, who remembered a two track sequence in which a brass band and a pipe band, playing their own tunes, marched from different directions and came together.".

>May 25, 1934

So, basically, this guy basically composed an archetype of sci-fi/fantasy soundtracks by accident, thinking that he was writing for some sort of bar-mitzvah or something and happened upon... (1/2)
>>
>>11308157

(2/2)

Like basically the entirety of soundtracks for twentieth-century action movies.

It's pretty uncanny.

I don't know. You decide, but I don't get the impression at all that this composer had any idea that he'd lay the foundation for a hundred years of cinema.

Im 21 yo and my posture is actually shit - head forward, looks like im developing a hump and also one of my shoulders is higher than the other. When i put on a two strap bag, it slips off of my left shoulder.
When i try to walk with a straightened back, i get back aches sometimes upper sometimes lower back.
Have any of you used these? Do they really make your posture at least a bit better or is it just a scam?
