An experiment by Australian scientists has proven that what happens to particles in the past is only decided when they are observed and measured in the future.

Until such time, reality is just an abstraction.

Quantum physics is a weird world. It studies subatomic particles, which are the essential building blocks of reality.

All matter, including ourselves are made up of them. But, the laws governing the tiny microscopic world seem to be different to those dictating how larger objects behave in our own macroscopic reality.

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.

To bamboozle you further, this should all be going on right now in the subatomic particles which make up your body.

If all this seems utterly incomprehensible and sounds downright nuts, you’re in good company.

Einstein called it “spooky” and Niels Bohr, a pioneer of quantum theory once said:

“if quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet.”

In this latest experiment, carried out by scientists at the Australian National University, lead researcher Andrew Truscott said in a press release that they have proven that,

“reality does not exist if you are not looking at it.”

Scientists have shown long ago that a particle of light, called a photon, can be both a wave and a particle by using the so-called double slit experiment. It showed that when light is shone at two slits in a screen, a photon is able to pass through one of them as a particle and both of them as a wave.

Australia’s explains,

“Photons are weird. You can see the effect yourself when shining a light through two narrow slots.

The light behaves both like a particle, going through each slot and casting direct light on the wall behind it – and like a wave, generating an interference pattern resulting in more than two stripes of light.”

Quantum physics postulates that the reason for this is that a particle lacks definite physical properties and is defined only by the probabilities of it being in different states.

You could say it exists in a suspended state, a sort of super-animation until it is actually observed, at which point, it takes on the form of either a particle or wave, while still having the properties of both.

This was discovered when scientists carrying out double-slit experiments noticed that when a photon wave/particle is observed, it collapses, so it wasn’t possible to see it in both states at once. Thus, it isn’t possible to measure both the position of a particle and its momentum at the same time.

However, a recent experiment  – reported in Digital Journal (see ‘Simultaneous Observation of the Quantization and the Interference Pattern of a Plasmonic Near-Field‘) – has now captured an image of a photon as both a wave and a particle for the first time.

As puts it, the problems that still puzzles scientists is,

“What makes a photon decide when to be one or the other?”

The Australian scientists set up an experiment similar to the double-slit one to try to estimate when particles took on a particle or wave form.

But instead of using light, they applied helium atoms, which are “heavier” than light photons, in the sense that photons have no mass, whereas atoms do.

This was significant they said.

“Quantum physics predictions about interference seem odd enough when applied to light, which seems more like a wave, but to have done the experiment with atoms, which are complicated things that have mass and interact with electric fields and so on, adds to the weirdness,” said PhD student Roman Khakimov, who was involved in the experiment.

Nevertheless, they expected the atom to behave just like light, meaning that it would take on both the form of a particle and/or a wave.

This time they fired the atoms at two grate-like forms created by lasers, although the effect was similar to a solid grate.

However, the second grate was only put in place after the atom had passed through the first one. And the second grate wasn’t applied each time, only randomly, to see how the particles reacted differently.

What they found was that, when there were two grates in place, the atom passed through it on many paths in a wave form, but, when the second grate was removed, it behaved like a particle and took only one path through.

So, what form it would take after passing through the first grate depended on whether the second grate was put in place afterward. Therefore, whether it continued as a particle or changed into a wave wasn’t decided until a future event had already taken place.

Time went backwards. Cause and effect appear to be reversed. The future caused the past. The arrow of time seemed to work in reverse.

The decisive point when its form was decided was when the quantum event was observed and measured. Before that, whatever would take place existed in a suspended state, the atom had not yet “decided” what to do.

Professor Truscott said that the experiment showed that,

“A future event causes the photon to decide its past.”

There is also good evidence that quantum processes take place inside our brains and within our body cells, as reported by the The Guardian last year.

However, I wouldn’t advise you to run at a wall to see if you can pass through it, and I doubt that what you’re doing now is being decided by your future self already acting tomorrow.

Nevertheless, it would be nice if, on my next birthday, I became a year younger…

The 2nd one:

Quantum Experiment Shows how “Time” Doesn’t Exist as We Think it Does – Mind-Altering

by Arjun Walia July 20, 2015 from Collective-Evolution Website

“We choose to examine a phenomenon

which is impossible, absolutely impossible,

to explain in any classical way,

and which has in it the heart of quantum mechanics.

In reality, it contains the only mystery.”

Richard Feynman, a Nobel laureate of the twentieth century

Radin, Dean – Entangled Minds: Extrasensory Experiences in A Quantum Reality

The concept of “time” is a weird one, and the world of quantum physics is even weirder.

There is no shortage of observed phenomena which defy our understanding of logic, bringing into play thoughts, feelings, emotions – consciousness itself, and a post-materialist view of the universe.

This fact is no better illustrated than by the classic double slit experiment, which has been used by physicists (repeatedly) to explore the role of consciousness and its role in shaping/affecting physical reality.

The dominant role of a physical material (Newtonian) universe was dropped the second quantum mechanics entered into the equation and shook up the very foundation of science, as it continues to do today.

“I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulating consciousness.”  

Max Planck, theoretical physicist who originated quantum theory, which won him the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1918

There is another groundbreaking, weird experiment that also has tremendous implications for understanding the nature of our reality, more specifically, the nature of what we call “time.”

It’s known as the “delayed-choice” experiment, or “quantum eraser,” and it can be considered a modified version of the double slit experiment.

To understand the delayed choice experiment, you have to understand the quantum double slit experiment.

In this experiment, tiny bits of matter (photons, electrons, or any atomic-sized object) are shot towards a screen that has two slits in it.

On the other side of the screen, a high tech video camera records where each photon lands. When scientists close one slit, the camera will show us an expected pattern, as seen in the video below. But when both slits are opened, an “interference pattern” emerges – they begin to act like waves.

This doesn’t mean that atomic objects are observed as a wave (even though it recently has been observed as a wave), they just act that way. It means that each photon individually goes through both slits at the same time and interferes with itself, but it also goes through one slit, and it goes through the other.

Furthermore, it goes through neither of them. The single piece of matter becomes a “wave” of potentials, expressing itself in the form of multiple possibilities, and this is why we get the interference pattern.

How can a single piece of matter exist and express itself in multiple states, without any physical properties, until it is “measured” or “observed?” Furthermore, how does it choose which path, out of multiple possibilities, it will take?

Then, when an “observer” decides to measure and look at which slit the piece of matter goes through, the “wave” of potential paths collapses into one single path. The particle goes from becoming, again, a “wave” of potentials into one particle taking a single route. It’s as if the particle knows it’s being watched. The observer has some sort of effect on the behavior of the particle.

You can view a visual demonstration/explanation of the double slit experiment here.

This quantum uncertainty is defined as the ability,

“according to the quantum mechanic laws that govern subatomic affairs, of a particle like an electron to exist in a murky state of possibility – to be anywhere, everywhere or nowhere at all – until clicked into substantiality by a laboratory detector or an eyeball.”

(New York Times)

According to physicist Andrew Truscott, lead researcher from a study published by the Australian National University, the experiment suggests that,

“reality does not exist unless we are looking at it.” 

It suggests that we are living in a holographic-type of universe (read ‘Scientists Show Future Events Decide what Happens in The Past‘)

Delayed Choice/Quantum Eraser/Time

So, how is all of this information relevant to the concept of time?

Just as the double slit experiment illustrates how factors associated with consciousness collapse the quantum wave function (a piece of matter existing in multiple potential states) into a single piece of matter with defined physical properties (no longer a wave, all those potential states collapsed into one), the delayed choice experiment illustrates how what happens in the present can change what happens(ed) in the past.

It also shows,

  • how time can go backwards
  • how cause and effect can be reversed
  • how the future caused the past

Like the quantum double slit experiment, the delayed choice/quantum eraser has been demonstrated and repeated time and time again.

For example, Physicists at The Australian National University (ANU) have conducted John Wheeler’s delayed-choice thought experiment, the findings were recently published in the journal Nature Physics. (source)

In 2007 (Science 315, 966, 2007), scientists in France shot photons into an apparatus and showed that their actions could retroactively change something which had already happened.

“If we attempt to attribute an objective meaning to the quantum state of a single system, curious paradoxes appear: quantum effects mimic not only instantaneous action-at-a-distance, but also, as seen here, influence of future actions on past events, even after these events have been irrevocably recorded.”

Asher Peres, pioneer in quantum information theory (source) (source) (source)

The list literally goes on and on, and was first brought to the forefront by John Wheeler, in 1978, which is why I am going to end this article with his explanation of the delayed choice experiment.

He believed that this experiment was best explained on a cosmic scale.

Cosmic Scale Explanation

He asks us to imagine a star emitting a photon billions of years ago, heading in the direction of planet Earth. In between, there is a galaxy.

As a result of what’s known as “gravitational lensing,” the light will have to bend around the galaxy in order to reach Earth, so it has to take one of two paths, go left or go right. Billions of years later, if one decides to set up an apparatus to “catch” the photon, the resulting pattern would be (as explained above in the double slit experiment) an interference pattern.

This demonstrates that the photon took one way, and it took the other way.

One could also choose to “peek” at the incoming photon, setting up a telescope on each side of the galaxy to determine which side the photon took to reach Earth. The very act of measuring or “watching” which way the photon comes in means it can only come in from one side.

The pattern will no longer be an interference pattern representing multiple possibilities, but a single clump pattern showing “one” way.

What does this mean? It means how we choose to measure “now” affects what direction the photon took billions of years ago. Our choice in the present moment affected what had already happened in the past…

This makes absolutely no sense, which is a common phenomenon when it comes to quantum physics.

Regardless of our ability to make sense of it, it’s real.

This experiment also suggests that quantum entanglement (which has also been verified, read more about that here) exists regardless of time. Meaning two bits of matter can actually be entangled, again, in time.

Time as we measure it and know it, doesn’t really exist
