    We’re in a simulation, where the only thing real is information. There is no distance, everything is located in the same spot. The interaction between our knowledge with quantum states, shows this to be an interactive reality, consistent with a large video game like simulation

    I feel like many of the answers are within the study of energy and vibrations.. like this cure for cancer, shattering cancer cells with electrical signals.. why is this not much bigger news that EVERYONE Knows about?

    I'm an idiot, but that bit at 15:30 doesn't that prove that hard determinism is not true then? You have nuts like Sam Harris who argue otherwise but here's a physicist that is telling you that things are not 100% predictable

    I'm almost finished this one and wishing it was another 3 hour podcast. I love these science podcasts so damn much. Quantum physics especially. Sean Carroll is really easy to listen to and as he said, likes explaining how the world works. Brian Cox as well is quite enjoyable to listen to. Hope to see either of them as soon as scheduling allows.

    I appreciate Sean's being reasonable. His ideas line up with the great philosopher Thomas Nagel. Nagel's The View from Nowhere is great for anyone looking for the philosophy side of this stuff.

    When Sean said those WTBleep guys were just telling a story about themselves I thought that right there is what people are doing in a self-depricating way as well. like oh im just little ol me listening to joe rogan. haha kinda funny. bringing the self into it. philosophy right there. whoadude.

    This many world theory makes me wonder if maybe time travel is possible after all. Maybe we could go back in time and the universe would be forced to automatically “fix” itself to “fit” the consequent reality. In which case we should totally bring back Einstein and get him to help with modern physics, lol.

    The insane thing is that quantum mechanics CAN have macroscopic cascade effects, ESPECIALLY now in our modern electronic civilization.. Just think about this silly simple example we can all relate to.. What if tomorrow, you open up Tinder or whatever electronic app that lets you meet new people. A quantum fluctuation in the app servers causes an electron to jump to another wire in the CPU while it's calculating the random seed number that matches you with another person, thus the resulting number changes based on that single quantum fluctuation.
    That now means that a completely different person is matched with you, compared to if that electron had NOT jumped wires. You both match up, start talking, start dating, and eventually marry and have kids. Now, that REAL physical flesh and bone child, was essentially summoned into existance because one quantum fluctuation caused a single electron to teleport and change position inside that CPU..
    Now, that child grows up to start a Mars colonization project, to jumpstart our effort to become multiplanetary. This results in humanity having established a self-sustaining colony on Mars 20 years before it would otherwise happen if that person didnt accelerate the progress beyond the delays of bureaocracy. Now what if the unthinkable happens..
    A huge asteroid impacts Earth and pretty much eliminates most of our civilization, perhaps even sterilizes the planet.
    But our Mars colony manages to survive, and eventually recolonize / support Earth in its recovery.
    If that quantum fluctuation in that 1 electron didnt happen, the two people wouldnt have met, and that child wouldnt have been born. That child not being born would not have lead to the Mars colony getting set up 20 years in advance, in time to be self-sufficent before the asteroid impacted Earth. And all of human civilization would have been wiped from the face of the galaxy..
    Do you guys see what im saying here? We dont even DARE to contemplate how much a single quantum event can change in our new electronic civilization, which could NEVER happen before we started harnessing electrons in this way.
    This is something that would be VERY hard and nearly impossible to have macroscopic effects in the pre-technological part of our history. If a single electron changes location in a lake, that wont affect the people living there, who they meet, what children they have, and so forth.
    But especially NOW with our reliance on calculations made by electrons moving through CPU's, they can have MACROSCOPIC effects that cascade down the chain of cause and effect, in ways we cant even begin to predict or comprehend..

      Hah interesting post. Is mind blowing to think about. Not just your example, but even every day minor choices that we all make (e.g. even typing this now instead of sleeping I might wake up a few minutes later and avoid a car crash tomorrow). The so called butterfly effect. That's why the many worlds theory seems too abstract to me as there's so many possible permutations. A deterministic universe almost makes more sense.

    First work out an irrefutable statement of information that needs no belief to back it up.
    (now is a truth for it is constant proof of itself).
    Then to work out what is this division betwixt the concepts of that which is not "now' the past and future.
    How does it help, what use is it?
    It is the truth of truths, to my mind.
    Then by knowing this, I can imagine and suppose uses for the ideology.
    We perceive the outer from this inner symmetry, it constantly divides for that is what it is, the center of all things, constantly (now).
    It can only be this way, for a vibration has only the inner symmetry to expand away from and collapse toward.
    The magnet has only this inner symmetry to have opposing fields.
    Imagine that hydrogen is a spherical vibration, it expands out to the size of a hydrogen atom then collapses through "inner symmetry (now) only to expand again, at an incredibly rapid rate, imagine that the expansion side of the cycle is (heat) and trending future.
    The counterbalance is the collapse toward the inner symmetry (gravity, the absence of heat, dark energy) past trending.
    Yet this is nowhere near the smallest scale of the universe, the "electron" extension in ratio to the (quantum) proton-neutron, comparable to the size of the galaxy to the earth in ratio.
    The neutron by all accounts is the inner symmetry that the proton oscillates about at rates exponentially more rapid than the constant of hydrogen.

    But this to my mind is the universal "now" the inner symmetry, the fastest and smallest a vibrational frequency can get.
    All other resonant vibrations can only be in slower and larger inertia about it , (the outer) potentially infinite in scale and rate, only potentially infinite because of the restriction of the inner symmetry (now).

    Even to extent of a possible mechanism that can transmit frequency exponentially faster than any machine we have at the moment.
    I don't think it possible to reproduce the intensity of the inner universal vibration, but to come to close at very powerful resonance might be a great thing.
    Manipulation of much larger atomic scale, matter generation,
    Just like cymatics with the patterns of sand and sound.
    But at the quantum scale.

    The future machine may even be the computer processor.

    Just work out what you want (purpose) and attempt to make it happen.
    Stop thinking particles and smashing,,,,, < (wrong) start thinking about creating exponentially faster transmitters if your purpose is to uncover quantum.
    The possibilities are incredible.

    When Fyman said the is one electron in the whole universe, it's just moving around (or something like that) was it just a thought experiment, philosophising, or was he being literal, or just to give an example of something or what?

    • Juanito G

      Im sure that was a quote from someone else which feynman often referenced.
      Ive always taken it as a flippant scientist joke thats "technically" correct but not. einstein once pondered how a man in a concealed box (i.e. with no reference) in space (0g) accelerating "up" (towards his head) at 9ms/s^2 is indistinguishable from being stationary on Earth and experience gravity (downward acceleration at 9m/s^2)
      Ive read that one electron remark equal to a physicist saying "ah we're just living on a flat disc accelerating up at 9m/s^2". A clear joke - doesnt ACTUALLY believe that. But hints at a deeper truth

      Determinism, in the quantum world, is more definitely wrong, however, things like cause and effect can be true in the macroscopic world
