I am here to try to get you to understand the 2 slit “quantum erase” experiment of vid 2. That professor does a lame job of explaining it because he thoroughly gets it and forgets that many don’t. Let me try to explain the experiment. I think I can do a better job. basically, there are two sets of data being collected every time they run the experiment- 1-the data that appears on the back wall (whether diffraction/interference pattern of many lines or two slit 2 single lines electron pattern) 2. the data that is being collected by the detectors located at the slits, which tells you which slit the quanta/electrons are going trough. So we have the wall data and the detector data. Wall data shows if electron acted like wave (diffraction/interference pattern of many lines) or particle (two single lines on back wall that an electron acting like a particle would leave).
two sets of data in each envelope:
1.wall data (2 vertical lines or many vertical lines)
2. detector data (electron passed either through slit 1 or slit 2)
Each time they run the experiment, they put wall data in one envelope and detector data in another and both into a bigger envelope marked “test 1 of 102” “test 2 of 102” “test 3 of 102” until the get to “test 102 of 102”.
So we have 102 big envelopes, each containing one wall data envelope and one detector data envelope. They open envelope 1 and envelope 102 and look at the detector data and wall data inside the big envelope (each in their own envelope). As expected, since they looked at the detector data to see which slit the electron passed through, the wall data showed two vertical lines like an electron acting like particle would leave.
Then they have 100 big envelopes left. They shuffle them and alternately sort them in two piles so that they have two piles of 50 big envelopes, A & B. They take all pile A and open the big envelope and then look at the wall data and detector data, removed from the 2 smaller envelopes that were placed inside the big one each time they did the experiment. And, as expected, the wall data showed the two vertical lines of electrons acting like particles leave.
Now the other 50 big envelopes of pile B. They open each big envelope, remove and destroy each detector data envelope of pile B. Here is the clincher- they open the wall data and each of the 50 wall data shows a diffraction/interference pattern of many vertical lines that a electron acting like a wave would leave.
So what? Think about it. They looked at the detector data of pile A of 50 big envelopes and all the wall data showed 2 vertical lines that particles leave. Then they threw away (destroyed) the detector data of all 50 pile B envelopes without ever looking at the detector data. When they opened the wall data, each wall data showed the many lines of diffraction/interference pattern a wave would leave. So, it didn’t matter whether they measured the detector data, but if you looked at it, the wall data changed. When they didn’t look at detector data, nothing changed and the many lines of diffraction/interference pattern that waves leave. Just looking changed what the electrons behaved like. So, our looking changes reality. When we didn’t look at detector data, the wave form appeared on wall data; When we disappeared the detector data, the wave pattern appeared on the wall. It is our “ACT OF LOOKING” that changed reality and not looking and throwing away the detector data kept it out of reality. So, the very act of looking made it real or didn’t. Not it’s existence. It did not exist until we looked at it. If we didn’t look, it never popped into existence. It never appeared into existence until we looked it into existence. It did not exist until we looked at it and not when it was measured or created.
To make the experiment more interesting, lets say, that pile B had 4 envelopes. One with wall data cut in half and the detector data paper cut in half and each half had the wall data and detector data on it, but no one looked at any of it. This variation of the experiment, that they didn’t do in the vid, we are doing as a thought experiment. We know what pile A was like. Now we have the 50 big envelopes of pile B. We give two people one detector data and one wall data, not yet looked at, so each person has a copy of both. If person 1 throws away the detector data, his wall data will be the many lines of a wave electron. If person two looks at wall data and detector data, two lines will appear on the wall data. So, each person determined his/her reality. So, there s no “one reality” for everyone. Each person’s reality is different. Each person’s reality must be considerably different than another’s. Since there isn’t an “out there” out there, your reality will be different than anyone’s.
We can see common events as common to all, but if we see every event as only our experience and not common for all, our reality of life is altered. Those that continue to believe that common events are seen into existence the same way by everybody, will continue down that reality. If you don’t, the world around you changes. All the people around you, fit into your model of reality and not in the consensus model. They may be living in the consensus timeline, while your timeline has moved into a different reality. Do you understand the implications of this? I am still in the developmental stages of this, but figured “what the heck”, let you understand the two slit experiment. I have not yet experimented how timeline changes for each individual works. Are we living in complete different timelines then but with the same players. To be determined. I figured, just getting the experiment had such powerful implications, I wanted to share
