Decoherence doesn't make observers unnecessary

Luboš Motl at The Reference Frame - 13 hours ago
Philip Ball wrote a long aeon.co essay titled Quantum Common Sense which argues that quantum mechanics isn't really "weird" and everything that was mysterious was basically explained... by decoherence. I sympathize with the text to some extent and the extent could have approached 100% some 25 years ago. In particular, decoherence is a legitimate insight and quantum mechanics isn't weird when you look at it calmly. But there are lots of claims that Ball makes that I heavily disagree with, too. OK, what is decoherence? And equally importantly, what decoherence isn't? Well, starting w... more »

In *The New York Times,* Bret Stephens blames Jon Ossoff's loss on Democratic and liberal contempt. Whatever else might be said about the race, Democrats didn’t lose for lack of political talent, campaign financing and organization or enthusiasm among their base. They lost because of their brand. What is that? Democrats may think the brand is all about diversity, inclusion and fairness. But for millions of Americans, the brand is also about contempt — intellectual contempt ...; moral contempt of the sort Hillary Clinton felt for Trump.... That contempt may be justified.

The Republican Party has dropped all its pretences. With Donald Trump in the White House, they no longer have to pretend that their mission is to protect the little guy. Their mission is to advance the interests of the wealthy. The health care bill that the Senate released yesterday offers incontrovertible proof of that. Paul Krugman writes: The substance is terrible: tens of millions of people will experience financial distress if this passes, and tens if not hundreds of thousands will die premature deaths, all for the sake of tax cuts for a handful of wealthy people.

Your Cells Are Listening: How Talking To Your Body Helps You Heal

I do agree with this concept. The real issue is how to provide effective instruction that triggers positive progress. This work maps it out, but it is difficult to properly master. What it does do however is show us a powerful reason for mastering meditation methods and sustaining practice. I would like to see written down conversations with ones body in order to model more specific conversations. This would be nice to form as a prayer even asking assistance to my body to make important changes. Out of this comes a profoundly practical motive for all spiritual practice often ... more »

The NSA won’t Release Clinton/Lynch Airport Tarmac Conversation because of “National Security”

Unbelievably, one of the most important conversations in history happens to be recorded. It will most certainly amount to obstruction of justice if not treason. Thus we have a spurious attempt to block access. This alone may be enough to trigger an outright arrest. It is now coming to that and having the participants in jail will also end the ongoing spurious attacks on the administration. This continues to be driven by the money machine long past good sense. They are desperate. National security is laughable and at worst is simply overcome by appointing a judge with appropr... more »
