    Sometimes I Don't Know What To Do With My Life

    You read it right. I'm in my early 20s and I know I have a lot of potential but there are times when I just don't know what to do with my life. There are just too many things to do and too little time to do all the things I want to do. For instance, I want to go back to school...

    Simultaneous Time

    I have read more than a few comments and stories this group has posted. Apparently, what a yogi told me back in 1973 is now coming to pass...many more spirits are becoming aware of QP on a personal level. He once explained it to us novices as "Time does not move...only...

    If I could started again ,

    I would chosen the quantum physics as my major in a college. I think it is our future in next century.

    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...

    A Fascinating Branch of Science

    I find quantum physics rather fascinating, because it's a field that truly drills down into essence of existence. And I find it rather amusing how "uncomfortable" conventional scientists become around theoretical physics... which can often show reproducible results in a...

    I Have Had Trouble With Physics

    I respect it a lot, and am good at math, but can't seem to penetrate physics to an intuitive level. i've always respected those who can deal with such abstraction, yet about reality. philosophy is a close cousin, also blows my mind.

    Exciting To Imagine

    Where The Infinite Universe Came From...

    Quantum mechanics (QM – also known

    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.

    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!!

    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!
