A nearly trivial demonstration that Quantum Mechanics is actually real and that reality isn’t… or isn’t like what we think is real.
Two crossed polarizers block all light. Add a 3rd at 45 decrees to both, it ought to help block. Instead, more light gets through. Easily demonstrated. In agreement with QM theory. Darned weird. Oh, and it basically says either the property of locality doesn’t exist (things can have effects at a distance) or the property of realism is wrong (that there is no underlying state that a particle must obey).
So where does that leave reality if there is no underlying force for reality, or if actions can happen at any distance?
How can this be used to create “impossible” machines?
If more photons can go through more filters could more protons go through more atomic shells to fuse in nuclei? Might it not just take MORE shielding electrons instead of less?
It’s clear that to really make this next leap of actual devices, one must understand what QM says really happens.
