Reality Depends on the Observer, and Does Not Exist Objectively



We are used to the concept of “objective reality”. Of course, each of us has our own ideas about the world around us, but still, there must be some kind of “general” reality. Alas, this does not appear to be the case.

A recent study by scientists from the ABC Federal University (UFABC) in Sao Paulo (Brazil) shows that any kind of reality only arises when it is fixed by an observer. The results of the work were published in the journal Communications Physics.

Bohr principle

The task of the Brazilian specialists was to test the “principle of complementarity” proposed in 1928 by the famous Danish physicist Niels Bohr. According to him, the same objects have complementary properties that cannot be observed or measured simultaneously.

For example, if you are conducting an experiment with two electrons, you will be able to determine the position in space of only one of them.

By the way, back in 1927 in Brussels during the fifth Solvay conference of physicists and chemists, a dispute took place between Bohr and Albert Einstein. It was about quantum theory, which was then only in its infancy.

Einstein insisted that the quantum states of particles have their own reality, independent of the influence of operators. Bohr argued that quantum systems get their own reality only after the creation of an experimental model, that is, after scientists begin to work with them.

“God doesn’t play dice,” Einstein retorted.

“The system behaves like a wave or a particle depending on the context, but you cannot predict what it will do,” Bohr retorted, referring to the dualistic concept put forward earlier, in 1924, by the French physicist Louis de Broglie, the essence of which was that matter can look like a wave at one moment of time and like a particle at another.

Wheeler and others

Subsequently, Bohr, who did not agree with Einstein, was able to formulate in detail his principle of complementarity, and thus provided other scientists with numerous experiments designed to confirm or disprove his hypothesis.

So, in 1978, the American theoretical physicist John Archibald Wheeler tried to rethink the experiment carried out in 1801 by Thomas Young to study the properties of light using a double slit.

During this experiment, the operators directed light at a wall in which two parallel slots were made. When light rays passed through one of them, as a result of diffraction, they were superimposed on the light from the other slit, interfering with it. This meant that light moved in waves. It turns out that it simultaneously has the nature of a particle and a wave.

Wheeler, on the other hand, used a device for research that operates in two modes of measurement: waves and particles. His research only confirmed Bohr’s complementarity principle.

However, more recent researchers who have tried to apply the principle of quantum superposition to particle experiments have found that they can exhibit hybrid behavior, such as overlapping in waves rather than complementing each other.

Laws of the quantum world

What did modern Brazilian scientists manage to achieve?

“In the experiment, we used nuclear magnetic resonance techniques similar to those used in medical imaging,” explains team leader Roberto M. Serra, researcher in quantum information science and technology at UFABC.

“Particles such as protons, neutrons, and electrons have nuclear spin, which is a magnetic property similar to the orientation of a compass needle. We manipulated the nuclear spins of various atoms in a molecule using electromagnetic radiation. In this setup, we created a new interference device for the nuclear spin of the proton to explore its wave and partial reality in the quantum realm” .

According to Serra’s colleague, Pedro Ruas Dieguez, a researcher at the International Center for the Theory of Quantum Technologies (ICTQT), the experiments gave approximately the same observed statistics as the previous ones, but at the same time they confirmed the Bohr complementarity principle.

However, the fact that a particle of matter in certain situations can behave like a wave and light like a particle still remains one of the most intriguing mysteries of quantum physics.

It turns out that reality really depends on the observer, and does not exist objectively, and this, to some extent, expands our capabilities.

“The more we unravel quantum mechanics, the more we can offer revolutionary quantum technologies that surpass their classical counterparts, including quantum computers, quantum cryptography, quantum sensors and quantum thermal devices,” states Serra.

Experts Declare Experimental Cancer Vaccine Based On mRNA Technology Is ‘Safe and Effective’




A new cancer vaccine based on Covid mRNA vaccine technology
which has yet to be clinically tested has already been declared “safe
and effective” by the British government.

Known as ‘LungVax’,
the new vaccine is being developed by the University of Oxford, the
Francis Crick Institute and University College London, and is expected
to be the first of a huge range of new cancer vaccinations available in
the near future.

Research scientists developing the ‘groundbreaking’ lung cancer
vaccine claim it will be effective in preventing up to 90 per cent of
cases by training the immune system to locate and attack early signs of

Lung cancer cells look different from normal cells due to having ‘red
flag’ proteins called neoantigens. The LungVax vaccine will carry a strand of DNA which trains the immune system to recognize these neoantigens on abnormal lung cells.

It will then instruct the immune system to destroy these cells and stop lung cancer.

Professor Tim Elliot, lead researcher at the University of Oxford, said: ‘Cancer
is a disease of our own bodies and it’s hard for the immune system to
distinguish between what’s normal and what’s cancer. 

‘Getting the immune system to recognize and attack cancer is one of the biggest challenges in cancer research today.”

Elliot admitted the new vaccine is based on technology used to create the Covid vaccine.

‘This research could deliver an off-the-shelf vaccine based on
Oxford’s vaccine technology, which proved itself in the Covid pandemic.

Remarkably, given the disastrous health consequences for those
vaccinated with the experimental Covid vaccines, Eilliot praised the
mRNA roll out as a success.

‘If we can replicate the kind of success seen in trials during
the pandemic, we could save the lives of tens of thousands of people
every year in the UK alone.’

Researchers have been granted up to £1.7 million from Cancer Research UK and the CRIS Cancer Foundation.

The team will receive funding for the study over the next 2 years to
support lab research and initial manufacturing of 3,000 doses of the
vaccine at the Oxford Clinical BioManufacturing Facility.

If successful, the vaccine will move straight into a clinical trials,
involving those at biggest risk of disease, such as current and former
smokers who currently qualify for targeted lung health checks in some
parts of the UK.

TV Host Demands Gov’t ‘Take Control’ of Elon Musk’s X To ‘Shut Down’ Conspiracy Theories




Elon Musk’s X must be “shut down” by government because dangerous “conspiracy theories” are spreading on the social media platform, according to British TV host Jeremy Vine.

“If there any argument to say, and this will sound crazy, but
China does it, we’ve got to now take control of Twitter and shut it down
for the time being,”
said Vine.

Vine made the comments earlier this week during a heated debate
regarding speculation surrounding the health and whereabouts of Kate
Middleton, the Princess of Wales.

‘We’ve now got to take control of Twitter’…..???????????? ⁦

Boomers have become obsessed with speculating that Middleton has died or is severely unwell and that the Royal Family is hiding it because she hasn’t been seen in months after an operation.

The manipulation of a series of photo of Middleton and her children also only served to fuel the rumors, as some sources close to the princess claimed she had been murdered by the royal family.

However, instead of dismissing the whole issue for what it is, a pointless distraction that will disappear once Middleton makes a public appearance around Easter, Vine called for draconian measures.

Modernity report:

Ah yes, the Communist dictatorship of China, which shuts down the Internet to clamp down on dissent and enhance its repression of undesirables.

That’s definitely who we should be mimicking, Jeremy.

Throughout the COVID pandemic, Vine’s show was a platform for some of the most vulgar, authoritarian drivel imaginable.

One show asked if children who are unvaccinated should be banned from schools or made to wear special badges.

Another asked, “Is it time to ban the unvaccinated from traveling?”

Vine has made a name for himself as being a dutiful amplifier of regime messaging, while his annoying side hobby of biking around London looking to film confrontations with motorists has also angered many.
