This addresses a fundamental challenge within the standard theory of quantum mechanics
Each of us may be able to experience totally different realities.
Jim Woodward’s peers have long dismissed his ideas about gravity and inertia. Now he believes he has the data that will prove him right—and could make interstellar travel possible for humans.
The thorny thought experiment has been turned into a real experiment — one that physicists use to probe the physics of information.
No matter where we start with quantum theory, we always end up at a conundrum
