Physicists Aim to Classify All Possible Phases of Matter

https://www.quantamagazine.org/physicists-aim-to-classify-all-possible-phases-of-matter-20180103/   Article by Natalie Wolchover Many scientists are beginning to realize that we live in an information universe where information about the physical makeup of reality resides in an ocean entangled bits of quantum information called 'qubits'. How this information collects determines the state of matter and spin of elementary particles  These phases show up … Continue reading Physicists Aim to Classify All Possible Phases of Matter

A New Spin on the Quantum Brain

https://www.quantamagazine.org/20161102-quantum-neuroscience/?utm_source=Quanta+Magazine&utm_campaign=d6cca631a0-Quanta_Newsletter_Feb_27_2015&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_f0cb61321c-d6cca631a0-389572177 By Jennifer Ouellette November 2, 2016 A new theory explains how fragile quantum states may be able to exist for hours or even days in our warm, wet brain. Experiments should soon test the idea The mere mention of “quantum consciousness” makes most physicists cringe, as the phrase seems to evoke the vague, insipid … Continue reading A New Spin on the Quantum Brain

The Strange Behavior of Quantum Particles May Indicate the Existence of Other Parallel Universes

June 3, 2015 by John Davis Read more at: http://phys.org/news/2015-06-strange-behavior-quantum-particles-parallel.html#jCp It started about five years ago with a practical chemistry question. Little did Bill Poirier realize as he delved into the quantum mechanics of complex molecules that he would fall down the rabbit hole to discover evidence of other parallel worlds that might well be poking through … Continue reading The Strange Behavior of Quantum Particles May Indicate the Existence of Other Parallel Universes
