Particular State of Reality …

This might sound like a cliched one, and quite a few would think I am jumping to conclusions … Take this as science fiction … Maybe it is, but then, maybe it isnt … I came across this article which talks in a simple way about parallel universes. Quite an interesting read …

Now, I am not the types who has Quantum Mechanics equations for Breakfast … Which is why this article kind of was readable … Especially the last part …

According to quantum mechanics, unobserved particles are described by “wave functions” representing a set of multiple “probable” states. When an observer makes a measurement, the particle then settles down into one of these multiple options.

Hmmmmm … What this implies in simpler language (one which even I can understand …), is that there are multiple probable current states of things. So, if I am sitting, thats only one possible state … Another could be that I am jogging (horror of horrors!), or having a vacation by the beach at Gopalpur! 🙂 Or, maybe at Banaras! OK … So, I got that pic from an Australian website, but then, Australia is the flavour of the winter, while Banaras is the eternal flavour!

But, we wander … The point is, what I can conclude from here … Does this mean there is nothing unique about reality? That what we see is only one possible state? That there are, simultaneously, other states which occur from the same event. The implication … everything is transient. Everything an illusion! You catch an electron today, it has an “up” spin, you catch it tomorrow, it has a “down”spin … So, wheres the guy spinning? Hmmmmm … Interesting!
