Scientists Confirm Reality An Illusion, Quantum Physics Show Einstein Wrong

An experiment at Griffith University’s Centre for Quantum Dynamics has proved that Einstein’s skeptical “spooky action at a distance” concept actually exists. reports:

In a paper published in the journal Nature Communications, CQD Director Professor Howard Wiseman and his experimental collaborators at the University of Tokyo report their use of homodyne measurements to show what Einstein did not believe to be real, namely the non-local collapse of a particle’s wave function.

According to quantum mechanics, a single particle can be described by a wave function that spreads over arbitrarily large distances, but is never detected in two or more places.

This phenomenon is explained in quantum theory by what Einstein disparaged in 1927 as “spooky action at a distance”, or the instantaneous non-local collapse of the wave function to wherever the particle is detected.

Almost 90 years later, by splitting a single photon between two laboratories, scientists have used homodyne detectors—which measure wave-like properties—to show the collapse of the wave function is a real effect.

This phenomenon is the strongest yet proof of the entanglement of a single particle, an unusual form of quantum entanglement that is being increasingly explored for quantum communication and computation.

“Einstein never accepted orthodox quantum mechanics and the original basis of his contention was this single-particle argument. This is why it is important to demonstrate non-local wave function collapse with a single particle,” says Professor Wiseman.

“Einstein’s view was that the detection of the particle only ever at one point could be much better explained by the hypothesis that the particle is only ever at one point, without invoking the instantaneous collapse of the wave function to nothing at all other points.

“However, rather than simply detecting the presence or absence of the particle, we used homodyne measurements enabling one party to make different measurements and the other, using quantum tomography, to test the effect of those choices.”

“Through these different measurements, you see the wave function collapse in different ways, thus proving its existence and showing that Einstein was wrong.”

    Experimental results never indicate that theories are correct. This also means no theories of math and physics can be verified by any engineering experiment. All theories of physics and math have the following structure: (1) A set of assumptions (2) A set of results and (3) A statement that says items in two will be valid only when items in one become valid.

    But we all know that nature and engineering can never make any assumption. Therefore items in one can never be valid in any engineering experiments. All engineering experiments will automatically reject all assumptions and will therefore never show any valid results of items in two for any theory. Consider the Newton’s first law as an example. This law says – an object will continue in motion in a straight line with a constant velocity. But we have never seen such an object on earth or in space. This has happened because nature rejected Newton’s assumption of isolated environment. The same is true for QM. QM theory is based on Uncertainty Principle (UP). Heisenberg said if UP fails then QM will also fail. Now UP has two very fatal assumption and therefore UP is wrong, and so QM theory is wrong also. Take a look at Heisenberg’s own proof copied exactly in here for more details.

    Einstein also made an assumption – light speed is constant. There are at least 100 peer reviewed professionally published paper that say light speed is not constant. Therefore the special theory of relativity is wrong. Take a look at academia edu for the paper Michelson-Morley experiment proves light speed is not constant. Thus the entire design of our education system is based on assumptions. We have built a house of cards.
