The Double Slit Experiment is an experiment in Quantum Physics in which the effects were shown by Thomas Young way back in 1803, but since has been proven even more strange by many others. It’s power truly reveals a mind-altering view of the world and how we affect it. I’m going to explain everything as easily as possible so that you won’t get discouraged during this explanation, so open your mind and be ready for a strange ride.
First of all, let’s explain what Quantum Physics is. Quantum Physics, simply put, is a type of physics of the atomic and subatomic levels which means it’s the study of the very, very small. Normal physics do notapply at this level. Heck, there’s nothing that seems normal that applys at this level.
What do I mean by that? Well, remember in school when they taught you that electrons, protons, and neutrons were tiny balls of matter. Even that is not always true. What? They taught us lies? No, they were teaching you in just a way that your young mind could have some kind of explanation of what is down there at that level. The electron is not really matter as we know it anyway, its just a cloud of energy. Ok, that’s somewhat believable so far. Here is where you’ll have to choke down some faith. Electrons, protons, neutrons are popping in and out of existence constantly. Scientists don’t know why, they don’t know where they go. They just know they do. New theories suggest parallel universes. It gets even wierder with the Double Slit Experiment so read on.
but we are only aware of 2000 of those
as within so without :)
