So apparently alternate universes do, in fact, exist. In a story that sounds straight out of a Philip K. Dick novel, quantum physicists at the University of California have managed to make a small metal paddle both vibrate and stand still, at the same time, somehow. Basically, by observing and measuring any object you are giving it a fixed location in time and space, when in fact everything is constantly vibrating, which means your measurement is inherently arbitrary, and what you’re seeing is actually just one dimension of ‘reality’. So much for believing in things!
What are the ramifications of this? Can we time travel? Have we already? How does Future factor into this? This article also reinforces my belief that, much like weather channels have ‘feels like’ temperature, we need a way to calculate ‘feels like’ time to account for all this relativistic bullshit. Lots of questions, very few answers, and my liberal arts education leaves me qualified to provide exactly zero of them. Maybe in another dimension I’m a quantum physicist. Until then, I, for one, welcome our new time-travelling overlords. Please don’t make it so I was never born. Thanks.- King James
