Quantum UFOs curbed by reason and good-think!
Lee Smolin’s book Time Reborn: From the Crisis in Physics to the Future of the Universe [Mariner Books, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Boston/NY, 2013] takes away my speculation that UFOs may be large quantum particles from an adjoining Universe or Dimension.
Smolin, on Page 154 ff., in Chapter 13 (The Battle Between Relativity and the Quantum), writing about free choices (free will), which Quantum Mechanics implies (because of the randomness, or duality, of quantum particles, stated by Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle: both the position and the momentum, of a particle, cannot simultaneously be measured with complete precision, and spotlighted by Schrödinger’s Cat Theory and other obtuse elements of Quantum Theory), says this:
“But in proposing [an] extension of quantum mechanics, we commit the cosmological fallacy, wrenching a theory beyond the limited domain where it can be compared to experiment. A more cautious response would be to explore the hypothesis that quantum physics is an approximation valid only for small subsystems.”
Smolin doesn’t even allow me to use philosophical application to my speculation:
“I don’t address [arguments] in the terms favored by philosophers [because they] are often bound up with linguistic analysis.” [Page 64]
Thus, my conjecture, based upon a review by Jim Holt, on Page 50 ff., in the November 10th, 2016 issue of The New York Review of Books of George Musser’s book Spooky Action at a Distance: The Phenomenon That Reimagines Space and Time – and What It Means for Black Holes, the Big Bang, and Theories of Everything [Scientific American/Farrar, Strauss and Giroux] is without merit.
The review elaborates on John Stewart Bell’s 1970 and 1982 experimentally proved theory of Nonlocality; that is quantum particles know and react to their counterparts, instantaneously, no matter how separated they are, even a Universe apart, causing a rift among those who thought like Einstein that such “spooky action at a distance” was not feasible or reasonable.
The review caused me to think that in another dimension or universe, quantum particles might not be minute or exist at the atomic level but exist as a macro-particle, some of which may intrude upon our existence or universe/dimension.
And their movement mimics that of a partner particle in a universe/dimension that abuts ours or has some connection to ours (via a black hole or contrived glitch).
But I can’t take it further. Lee Smolin, a noted theoretical physicist, forces me to set aside the speculation as foolhardy.
Or is it?
