325. Zombies: The Movie – 329. Which Basis is More Fundamental?

325. Zombies: The Movie

Haha, macht sich über die Zombie-Hypothese lustig.

326. Three Dialogues on Identity

Manchmal ist das Weltbild anderer Menschen so falsch, dass eine Kommunikation mit ihnen (fast) unmöglich ist.

327. Decoherence

To sum up:

Decoherence is a thermodynamic process of ever-increasing quantum entanglement, which, through an amazing sleight of hand, masquerades as increasing quantum independence:  Decoherent blobs don’t interfere with each other, and within a single blob but not the total distribution, the blob is more factorizable into subspaces.

328. The So-Called Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle

One thing that the Heisenberg Student Confusion Principle DEFINITELY ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY DOES NOT SAY is that KNOWING ABOUT THE PARTICLE or CONSCIOUSLY SEEING IT will MYSTERIOUSLY MAKE IT BEHAVE DIFFERENTLY because THE UNIVERSE CARES WHAT YOU THINK.

329. Which Basis is More Fundamental?

I accept the possibility that this whole blog post is merely stupid.  After all, the question of whether the position basis or the momentum basis is “more fundamental” should never make any difference as to what we anticipate.  If you ever find that your anticipations come out one way in the position basis, and a different way in the momentum basis, you are surely doing something wrong.
