and try to find your friend at the other end.” — Leonard Susskind

In this talk Leonard Susskind gives a convincing argument as to why he thinks that ER == EPR , where ER denotes an Einstein – Rosen Bridge (aka wormhole) and EPR is the Einstein Podolsky Rosen paper (essentially entanglement).

Leonard draws three entangled pairs of particles on the chalkboard, (image its not merely 3 by 3e40) and then collapse the left and right down to black holes, then the entaglement must continue, and thus ER == EPR

Quantum statistics in Bohmian trajectory gravity-T C Andersen 2019 J. Phys.: Conf. Ser. 1275 012038 – 9th International Workshop DICE2018 : Spacetime – Matter – Quantum Mechanics Abstract. The recent experimental proposals by Bose et al. and Marletto et al. (BMV) outline a way to test for the quantum nature of gravity by measuring gravitationally induced differential phase accumulation over the superposed paths of […]

Gravitation finally meets Quantum Mechanics in experiments-I think that the biggest news in a while in quantum mechanics is newly forming ability of experimenters to do quantum experiments with gravity. A fine example of an experiment already done is Phase Shift in an Atom Interferometer due to Spacetime Curvature across its Wave Function by Asenbaum et al. They conclude: Therefore, the phase shift […]

GR = QM – Susskind & I agree :)-So Leonard Susskind publishes a paper on arXiv Dear Qubitzers, GR=QM Which of course is what I have been saying all along. Of course Susskind’s paper is actually ‘of course’ not about QM emerging from GR, which is what I believe, and have good reason to follow up on. Instead Susskind says: Dear Qubitzers, GR=QM? […]

Rings coalescing-As someone pointed out on reddit, it looks like an inelastic collision. Singularities, de Broglie and emergent quantum mechanics comes to mind for me. The interaction causes a wave to propagate. After a time equal to the period of a wave on the ring, it separates into two. https://file.scirp.org/pdf/ACES_2013100819104983.pdf When I saw this gif I […]

Important New Book – Theo van Holten-The Atomic World Spooky? It Ain’t Necessarily So!: Emergent Quantum Mechanics, How the Classical Laws of Nature Can Conspire to Cause Quantum-Like Behaviour by Theo van Holten The hardcover is out – for example here: Amazon.com or at Springer – but its coming out in paperback soon – Amazon.ca . Its not coming in paperback, so […]

Adam Helfer – Black hole evaporation? – the trans-Planckian problem-I have been reading up on the trans-Planckian problem with the black hole evaporation process. (See the end for an update in March 2018) Here is the problem. An observer far away from a black hole sees photons of normal infared or radio wave energies coming from a black hole (i.e. << 1eV). If one […]
