After watching the documentary “What The Bleep Do We Know: Down The Rabbit Hole,” my brain is filled with terms and new truths that sends exhilarating chills down my spine. Combined with it’s documentary-style, the two and a half hour video uses computer-animated graphics and a narrative to posit a spiritual connection between quantum physics and consciousness. I know that might sound boring, but it is very well put together and kept my attention the entire time.
I keep thinking about what they said about superposition, that a physical system (say, an electron) exists partly in all its particular, theoretically possible states (or, configuration of its properties) simultaneously; but, when measured, it gives a result corresponding to only one of the possible configurations (as described in interpretation of quantum mechanics). This blew my mind—to think that something can exist in two different places at the same time—and I didn’t believe it at first, but the documentary assured me that this has been done before in labs all over the United States.
