Well, maybe not…but…
Quantum laws tend to contradict common sense. At that level, one thing can be two different things simultaneously and be at two different places at the same time. Two particles can be entangled and, when one changes its state, the other will also do so immediately, even if they are at opposite ends of the universe – seemingly acting faster than the speed of light.
Particles can also tunnel through solid objects, which should normally be impenetrable barriers, like a ghost passing through a wall. And now scientists have proven that, what is happening to a particle now, isn’t governed by what has happened to it in the past, but by what state it is in the future – effectively meaning that, at a subatomic level, time can go backwards.
I recently heard (Orthodox Priest) Father ]] speak to the idea that prayers for the dead (and I hope I’m not getting this wrong) may be able to correct the person’s life in the last few seconds.
I don’t know. Don’t really care. But this is interested and like other recent discoveries, gives me an open sense of mystery. If physics can leave a mystery, postulate seemingly nonsensical things, and give us almost certain paradoxes… well shoot, then it isn’t that much different than orthodox theology.
I love this stuff. Just wish I understood the math better.
From the article….”Niels Bohr, a pioneer of quantum theory once said: ‘if quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet.'”
