But we're talking about a muti-billion dollar pen, here!

Which can now, allegedly, be purchased at your local Office Depot for the low low price of $16.99!

IIRC, we have slowed down a photon long enough to weigh it...
correct?

Is there still debate on it being a "particle-wave" now?

Do people still doubt global warming? We can't convince everyone...

What are everyone's thoughts on Pilot Wave theory?
Yes, we are going to fight back. But not here, not now, not in the Colonies. Not even in this star system. Let the word go forth to every man, woman and child who survived this holocaust. Tell them to set sail at once in every assorted vehicle that will carry them.

It is interesting, yet just as unsubstantiated as the other options.

The split, IMHO;

Either...

1. Our knowledge of quarks state locks them.

2. Our knowledge causes a probability collapse.

3. Normal physical laws still apply, but we don't know the variables at play.


While the strange observations in quantum theory can be quite sensational,
it is more like trying to describe an elephant while only looking through a keyhole
standing next to it. Without context EVERYTHING looks strange!

I prefer option 3.
