    I just found this group.

    I looked at the posts. I am surprised by the number of persons interested in this subject. Not that i am a big expert on the subject, but here is my take on it. The mathematical aspects of Quantum Physics is nothing more than a set of tools. It allows calculations of...

    I don't really understand it.

    .. but it is interesting. Thinking about multiverses blows my mind but I'm not entirely convinced that it's anything more than a theory.

    Scientific Debate About Time And Space

    I have recently seen another talk of time on TV and have thought to myself recently what if its all in our heads, what if time doesn't really exist and is a way of our brain understanding chemical reactions or distance/both etc. after all time is used in everything we would of...

    I Like Quantum Physics And Relativity.

    As introduction, read : Quantum mechanics, also known as quantum physics or quantum theory, is a branch of physics providing a mathematical description of much of the dual particle-like and wave-like behavior and interactions of energy and matter. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki...

    The quantum disciplines in maths

    and physics are very thought provoking. The new concepts are transforming the way we think about things. The lectures you can witness on quantum mechanics are intriguing, and it seriously want to hear more!

    and it talked about time in relativity. An hour on a planet = 7 years elsewhere. Say hello to a blackhole and 50 years has passed. It's just so hard to grasp such concepts. Yet time is indeed relative here on Earth. A week may seem like a long time ago, yet a few hours may seem...

    that in Quantum mechanics the only time a Quantum particle is predictable is when it is measured.. and any other time it is completely unpredictable. It's like quantum particles know when they are being watched!!

    different from saying it is self-adjoint. I am so surprised. It's like the quantum mechanics I learnt in the past is not rigorous enough.

    One of My Stranger Hobbies

    High school. 199something. We studied it for an extra-curricular thing, and it became a hobby. I'm too dumb to really get it, I think, but I love treating it like philosophy. :) Nothing more stimulating than an intense conversation about theoretical science.

    There's this double slit experiment

    and it's about the way we observe things, as far as I could understand.. Apparently, objects act differently when u don't look at it, but once we look at it, it starts to act how we expect them to behave. No time influence no space. This world is playing tricks with us!
