Whether you can observe a thing or not depends on the theory which you use. It is the theory which decides what can be observed.–einstein
hi all! the minev experiment really got my neurons buzzing and inspired me to dive deep into a lot of QM lately. so have been looking further into many QM directions that are relatively new, only about ~2decades old. during this time Quantum Computation has had a big effect on the development of physics research + trends. the age-old problem introduced with the origins of QM, “the measurement problem” comes front-and-center. QC fundamentally depends on “accurately measuring” qubits. but due to complementarity identified by Bohr + the heisenberg uncertainty principle, “accurate measurement” is an extremely slippery, subtle concept in QM/QC.
this stuff is some of the hardest in the world to “wrap ones brain around.” the worlds top geniuses are still struggling themselves. its a rarefied crowd, an at times esoteric/ arcane area. even physics specialists into QC are not so familiar with some of the deeper ramifications. last month, outlined a bunch of vocabulary that is related to the Minev work. ah, its much more comprehensive, its an entirely new vocabulary around QM mostly from the optics subfield. had to try to disentangle all that somehow…
“the devil is in the details…”
