A team of scientists has succeeded in putting an object large enough to be visible to the naked eye into a mixed quantum state of moving and not moving.

Great post RJN



To Exist, I First must not Exist. I am dead, And then i,m alive. Then i,m dead again. The first Sub Atomic Microbes Must have worked this problem out. At your quantum level. And yes, we are learning it all over again. For the first ever life, It had a major problem, Its death. And it had to find the solution in less than a millisecond. Unless there,s more to life and sub atomic Microbes (Dimensions) than we can comprehend.


Great read Rob Thanks

quantum resonators could be useful for something, although Cleland admits he's not entirely sure what.
I both understood and did not understand this article at the same time.
