We have an effect on the Universe? [Oct. 25th, 2006|11:52 pm]
Mysteries and Paranormal in Michigan and elsewhere


An experiment was done to see how matter moves through two slits in a wall and ends up on the other side. Then they started using this experiment at the quantum level, launching electrons at the slits. Things started getting Very interesting. See for yourself.

Basically, the fact that the scientists watched the electrons move, made the electrons somehow change their behavior as matter.

This makes me realize how much we really don't understand about how things are in the universe, and how much of an impact we as individuals have on the universe even if we don't realize it.

Still kind of on topic is another interesting thing I want to bring up. All things with a mass have a gravitational force of its own, even us. Newton's Law of Gravitation calculates the force of gravity any two objects exert on each other depending on how far apart the two objects are.

The cool part about this law is that even if two objects were almost an infinite distance apart, the gravity attracting them together still wouldn't be zero. So all of us, no matter how big or small we are, have an effect on the farthest objects in the universe. Even though it's an extremely miniscule effect we have, we still all count.

That video really helps here. I had heard of this experiment before but hadn't thought anything of it until I saw it like that. Maybe they're trying to say electrons change due to what we think should happen or something.

wtf rob, you could teach science. ever thought of that as a career path?

nah, don't want to be a teacher. i can't explain anything worth a damn in person.

but rob, by the time you get a teaching cert, all classes willl be on the INTERWEBNET, the newfangled world of tomorrow!

maybe the gravitational force of that giant metal eye moved the electrons?

just a thought

This is why I'm becoming a physics major. Haven't gotten into quantum physics yet, but I did do the double slit experiment with light.
