Has the gringa’s dear readers been equally fascinated as the gringa about theories that humanity exists inside a space alien civilization’s advanced alternate reality game? Has it made you pause and deeply ponder such possibilities? Have you ever looked deeply into your own eyes in a mirror and wondered, “How do we really know what is real?” Well, the gringa has good news, depending on how you look at it, brought to us all by some Australian physicists.
The dear reader may ask how their experiments, supposedly proving that reality doesn’t really exist, could be good news. Well, in light of all the trouble and suffering that perpetually exists throughout the world despite mankind’s best efforts to make things better, well, all this mayhem may not even be our fault!
Or, another perspective could take a different tack. Now that we know that we don’t necessarily control our reality, humanity could possibly stage a revolt. We could simply refuse to play anymore. We could all engage in a worldwide sit-in refusing to participate in ET theatre. But, first, to the experiment.
First, one must understand the experiment: The John Wheeler delayed-choice thought experiment, also called the Wheeler thought experiment. This experiment poses a theoretical question: When does an object decide to act like one thing or another at the atomic level? In other words, at some point, atoms have to decide how they will work together to “be” something. How do they do this?
Physicists from the Australian National University, Andrew Truscott and Roman Khakimov, performed the following experiment to answer these very complex questions:
- They used fancy equipment to trap a single helium atom.
- They dropped the atom through a pair of lasers that created a scattered grating pattern.
- Another set of lasers were added at different intervals to recombine the laser beams to make it seem as if the single atom was traveling 2 separate paths.
- When the second set of lasers were removed, the atom seemed to make a choice by preferring one particular laser beam.
What does this prove? According to Truscott it shows an atom making a choice based on belief which then caused it to transform into that as reality. Here is his complicated premise broken down:
- First, the scientist must recognize that final outcome reflects that the atom really did choose a particular path.
- By accepting atom choice as proven, theoretically the future expectation was affected by the past experience of the atom.
- Fact: The atom did not actually travel from point A to point B, only simulated by the laser beams.
- Fact: The wave-like behavior indicating travel by the atom only came into existence AFTER the scientists measured the data of the entire laser beam journey experiment.
- Fact: Simulation caused the atom to choose to create a false reality.
To clear up the confusion, think of it like this:
- You bake a cake.
- Before icing it you overlay the cake with holographic images of different icing designs.
- You ooh and aah over a particular selection.
- When finished perusing all your options, you turn off the holographic projector and discover the cake is the iced cake design you oohed and aahed over.
- You then, quite naturally, freak out.
So what does this tell us about our own reality where matter is based on atomic structure? It means that atoms only arrange themselves AFTER being observed. In other words, reality as we know it only happens after observation by an audience. Since that observation cannot be the subject of said observation, then atom based humanity must be being observed by someone, or something, else.
Yes. The gringa is sufficiently freaked out. I feel naked. I feel embarrassed about all those time I picked my nose thinking that I was alone. I am also really ticked off about all this suffering, wondering if it could all be stopped instantly if the observers would just stop being such sociopaths. The gringa is ready for a revolution of all humanity on a quantum physics level. Who wants to join me?
