The Science That Spirited Away the Evidence

I can’t help but comment on this news item from BBC News.

Quantum mechanics rule ‘bent’ in classic experiment

Researchers have bent one of the most basic rules of quantum mechanics, a counterintuitive branch of physics that deals with atomic-scale interactions.

Its “complementarity” rule asserts that it is impossible to observe light behaving as both a wave and a particle, though it is strictly both.

In an experiment reported in Science, researchers have now done exactly that.

They say the feat “pulls back the veil” on quantum reality in a way that was thought to be prohibited by theory.

“pulls back the veil”… that’s an interesting turn of phrase because I know that is exactly what is happening at the moment. From research and metastudies from Radin and innumerable others we know that over 100 years of research into the Ether and parapsychology and Ganzfield effects is real and verifiable. However, absurdly (or is it political?) this data has been excluded from Science up until now.

Quantum mechanics has spawned and continues to fuel spirited debates about the nature of what we can see and measure, and what nature keeps hidden – debates that often straddle the divide between the physical and the philosophical.

“Spirited” …Yes !

The trajectories of the photons within the experiment – forbidden in a sense by the laws of physics – have been laid bare.

“Mainstream” physicists have been busy shooting themselves in the foot for decades with all the forbidden data and absurd laws that have more to do with politics than Science.

For his part, Professor Steinberg believes that the result reduces a limitation not on quantum physics but on physicists themselves.

“I feel like we’re starting to pull back a veil on what nature really is,” he said.

He could have saved himself a lot of time by typing in goldenmean.info into his browser, but these kind of Scientists are encumbered by an inability to “mix their physics and mysticism”, to paraphrase Dan Winter. Yet many of them go off and publish books like the Tao of Physics.

“The trouble with quantum mechanics is that while we’ve learned to calculate the outcomes of all sorts of experiments, we’ve lost much of our ability to describe what is really happening in any natural language.

“I think that this has really hampered our ability to make progress, to come up with new ideas and see intuitively how new systems ought to behave.”

That’s just abysmal. There’s no excuse for this anymore. Some scientists continue to look at themselves as some kind of purely modern phenomena when in fact the aims and practice of Science – observation and experimentation – goes back for millenia. There’s no reason that the language of the Ancients can’t be used to describe what we struggle to grasp. We need to get away from this absurd prejudice towards the discoveries of the past that got firmly placed in the mysticism and “ooga booga” tribal chanting box. As Dan Winter and many others have shown there is a reason that people chant or follow “superstition”, as was shown, for example, by the geomagnetic lines over the landscape measured in Australia that match perfectly with Aborigine dream time walking paths.
