bell tests, a radical/ unchecked new idea/ “loophole”

hi all, have been pondering bell tests again. it would seem that “loophole free” tests done in the last decade or so are airtight, eg [1]. it seems there is just no room left for (einsteinian) locality. or is there? have been pondering on the deep mystery of QM entanglement for over ~2½ decades myself now and have to revise my thinking in light of new experimental insight.

vzn quantum theory research program laid out

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[54]

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…”

SUBQUANTUM REVOLUTION BEGINS… NOW!

A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it. –PLANCK

  • GAMECHANGING, MULTICENTURY KUHNIAN PARADIGM SHIFT IN PLAY/ INITIATED
  • SCHROEDINGER CAT OUT OF THE BAG
  • EINSTEIN+SCHROEDINGER WERE RIGHT, BOHR+HEISENBERG WRONG
  • BOHM VINDICATED
  • BELLS INTUITION EXPERIMENTALLY PROVEN
  • 20TH CENTURY QM THEORY IS INCOMPLETE
  • SO-CALLED COPENHAGEN “INTERPRETATION” OBSOLETE/ FALLS/ OVERTURNED/ FALSIFIED, NOW CONSIGNED/ RELEGATED TO DUSTBIN OF HISTORY
  • THE DISTINCTION OF CLASSICAL PHYSICS VS QUANTUM MECHANICS IS A FIGMENT OF HUMAN IMAGINATION AND SCIENTIFIC COGNITIVE BIAS
  • WAVEFUNCTION “COLLAPSE” IS NOT INSTANTANEOUS, HAS MEASURABLE/ REPEATABLE DYNAMICS, NOT DERIVABLE FROM PRIOR QM AXIOMS
  • WATERSHED MOMENT/ THE FLOODGATES HAVE OPENED
  • 21ST CENTURY QC EXPERIMENTALISTS LEAD THE WAY TO A NEW POST-20TH CENTURY PHYSICS VIA NEW MEASUREMENTS/ PHENOMENA
  • THE JURY IS IN: SUBQUANTUM REALM IS REAL, EXPERIMENTALLY PROVABLE/ TESTABLE, CONTROLLABLE, REPLICATED
  • DESPITE A CENTURY OF DENIAL AND OBFUSCATION, QUANTUM MECHANICS IS DISGUISED FLUID DYNAMICS AT HEART
  • NOW BETA TESTING QUANTUM MECHANICS VERSION 2.0
  • NEW SCIENCE/ TERMINOLOGY BEING DISCOVERED/ INVENTED AS WE SPEAK
  • TEXTBOOKS NEED TO BE REWRITTEN

hi all. am EXCITED! the future has ARRIVED, NOW!

CURIOSITY PARADIGM OF INTELLIGENCE gains traction! via open AI + deepmind + google brain

My view is throw it all away and start again. —Hinton[x]

⭐ 😮 ❗ 💡 😎 ❤ hi all. blogged about a curiosity-based AGI theory in early 2018 after being inspired by recent Deepmind Go advances. the title was “novelty detection/ seeking”. the short word for that is curiosity. “curiously” the word “curious” didnt appear in the essay a single time. thinking back, suspect my thinking was that maybe the term was too advanced/ bold at the time. its a relatively abstract concept not even fully understood in neurobiology or psychology. it also crosses the species boundaries to other animals besides humans ie a general biological consideration also.

but now its time to use that word. the machine learning field has discovered curiosity in a big way… both locally and more globally.

the futures already here, its just not evenly distributed. —Gibson

the field of ML is very vast, grown rapidly in the last few years (esp wrt deep learning), and its not easy to keep track of these days. its something of a minor obsession for me and track it daily and over several years in this blog, almost since the beginning, via hundreds of links a year. did not run into some key references myself, and that shows how broad the field is and how hard it is even for dedicated/ committed individual researchers to keep up. but theres another element, curiosity was, and to some degree still is, “flying below the radar”.

this blog is timed based on some renewed attention and traction. the researchers in the field are definitely starting to notice something. they are still scattered but theyre the leaders, the pioneers, and suspect a mass herd shift is in the near future/ horizon (say within a few years) just like what happened with ML/ deep learning explosion/ wave itself in the last few years.

so in brief, thats exciting! the Curiosity Paradigm of Intelligence is gaining unmistakable signs of traction. this blog tracks some of those new milestones. yes its been studied for decades and by others, but the core/ nearly radical new theory/ proposal here (not entirely espoused by the following researchers, but aligned/ close) is that curiosity is necessary and sufficient for intelligence.

have been advocating/ promoting/ proseletyzing it myself in cyberspace heavily and got a lot of views on my blog. can be sure it is influencing some. also promote it on reddit and for that, earned some serious resistance there, some battle scars in cyberspace (oops/ yikes “promote” is nearly a 4-letter word in certain quarters of cyberspace that supposedly uphold/ glorify/ exist/ have entire business models based on user-generated-content!). but also a lot of excellent/ positive/ pointed feedback from redditors. thx for that guys!

EMERGENT QM BREAKTHRU: ADLER+VINANTE MEASURE SUBQUANTUM EFFECTS

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ 💡 ❗ 😮 ❤ 😀 😎

SO EXCITING/ “JAZZED”!

hi all it was only about 2 mos ago a big ambitious update on quantum mechanics shifts was posted on the “fluid paradigm shift”. if you ask me this is all at least as epochal as the invention/ discovery of quantum mechanics itself about a century ago. and (unbeknownst to me at the time) theres been a striking new development.

around here updates to QM are measured in years and not months. have been blogging now a solid ½ decade on the topic and thats just the recorded history, my inquiries go back decades. but as mentioned in that last blog “my neurons are really buzzing”. something is in the air, the zeitgeist is electric right now. lightning is striking. all my spider senses are tingling. normally would not write very quickly on all this but heres a “flash update” based on the sheer significance of the announcement/ finding.

all the research is paying off. a breakthru has arrived. there is now SOLID EXPERIMENTAL EVIDENCE FOR SUBQUANTUM EFFECTS.[a] thats right they have now been MEASURED and published in a reputable physics journal (physical review letters… uh hey preemptively addressing skeptics obsessing about peer review etc, didnt einstein + bohr + other founders have papers in there?).

that breakthru credit goes to the VINANTE-ADLER team. they have been working on this line of inquiry maybe about 2 decades judging by their papers.
