Classically Perceived Quantum Tells:

Here is Doug's heuristic list of everyday Millennium III experiences
which uncloak quantum reality's essence for those of us who wish to see.
This is only a partial list. A full list would run thousands (at least) of items.

Added 10May2000:
So you ask, "Why is this important to me? Why is Doug doing this?"

We say that Quantonics, "Is a philosophy and science of interrelationships."
Interrelationships of what?
What kinds of interrelationships do quantons have?
Emphatically non-classical interrelationships. Emphatically quantum interrelationships!
Quantonic interrelationships experience a non-classical, quantum ontology:
Quantons' interrelationships are non-Aristotelian, quantum-included-middle coinsidences!
They involve many flavors of quantum coherence, including: coherence, partial coherence, decoherence, and isocoherence.
Coherence, partial coherence, and decoherence are important for technological innovation because
they may be distinguished and used to select highly prized quantum behaviors: IBM scientists use coherent 'spin' (link is c. 2007 update on this little story) to
"spin valve" current flow in ultra-high density GMR disk drives. See notes below.
Quantons may be wholly coherent (bosons, BECs, etc.),
partially coherent ("spin doctored fermions," quantum number "doctored" fermions, tunneling-selective fermions,
superluminality-selective fermions, teleport-selective fermions, tsunami, solitons,
gravity, magnetism, motion — including least actions and least times partial coherence —, etc.),
decoherent (fermions, noncoherent fermionic quantum flux), and
isocoherent (transitioned to pure quantum vacuum flux).
All quantons share quantum vacuum flux (i.e., VES) as their c¤mplement.

Our quantum tells below (AKA quantonic tells), are usually perceived classically.
Classical perception blinds us to quantum reality. Take your classical blinders off!
We ask you to consider our classically perceived quantum tells from a quantum perspective.

21 Hiding[s]. (Apparent absence: both partial and 'complete.')

Heraclitus' "Nature likes to hide." Essential metaphor of all n¤ndecoherent (all quantum~coherent) flux. Fathom quantum memeos of beingisobeing~ontologies, creatio ex nihilo aperio, creatio nihilo ex vivo aperio, indeterminate quantum~scintillation as means of quantum~observations, quantum~flux as wholly positive quantum~energy, quantum~negation as subjective, quantum~phasicity, quantum~probability as quantum~waves — AKA flux — as the ultimate quantum~observables, quantum~tentativenessings of quantum~fluxings'~cancelationings, etc.

Let's list some examples of actual torque~hiding as real tells:

  • Twin engine airplanes use contra-rotation of props to cancel "turning torque" of props turning in same rotational 'direction.'
  • Special wrenches used by Nasa in low G outer space which allow turning of nuts and bolts without global torque affects.
  • Fan blades in jet engines which contrarotate to prevent (cancel) intra engine torque affects.
  • Etc.

Let's list some envisioned examples of torque hiding as potential tells:

  • Large scale mobile anti rotation wind devices to mitigate hurricanes and tornadoes.
  • Etc.

Ditto for bosonic hiding:

  • Similar as diffracted light bosons "hide their light," how would we use nonlinear devices to hide 'heat?' How can we entangle heat photons to induce cancellation and hide heat?
  • Now use similar quantum~memes to tentatively and in a controlled manner, "hide gravity." How can we "diffract gravity" and make it interfere locally with itself in a way that engenders "partially~canceled" gravity.
  • Etc.

  • Number - Classically 'number' is a spatial concept. Classical number is a quantity, a quantitative concept. Classical number is a state-ic concept. Classical number assumes reality is stable and that numbers in reality are independent of one another. Why does no classical number offer enough precision to represent arbitrary real values in nature? This is a quantum tell of first magnitude! Answer: nature is quantum and quantum nature is qualitative, animate/instable, and included-middle-c¤mplementary associative/interdependent. Quantitative classical numbers are innately incapable of arbitrarily precise measurements of quantum reality because they are quantitative and they assume reality is quantitative. Classical analytic concepts like number attempt to take a qualitative reality and quantify it. Can't be done and still have a c¤mplete representation of quantum reality. See Henri Louis Bergson's Time and Free Will, Index N, number.
  • Solitonic Ferromagnets - Remember high school physics experiments? Remember taking an iron bar and holding it against a solid (e.g., stone) surface and hitting its free end with a hammer? Before you hit it, it was not magnetic. After you hit it, you could pick up other ferrous materials with it. What happened? Something very similar to what happens when an earthquake causes a tsunami wave. Just as ocean water becomes solitonic (H2O fermions become quantum partially coherent), Fe fermions become partially coherent in an iron bar when you strike it as we described. See Ferromagnetism note just below.
  • Paradice - Examples: Escher's closed loop stairs come in two classically paradoxical flavors. Flavor one is all stairs up. Flavor two is all stairs down. Either flavor contains both flavors depending on direction of a 'walk.' Classically a closed loop of, say four, stairs is nonparadoxical as long as one, two, or three stairs are either up or down, and other stairs are respectively either down or up. At least one set of stairs must be 'classically' opposite others. A closed loop of four stairs is not classically a single context. It is at least two contexts! Escher created his paradoxical stairs simply by taking, for example, three stairs of context up, and one stair of context down then replacing his context down stair with a context up stair. He could just have easily altered two ups and two downs with a new context of two ups to replace two downs. Other examples are ones which we show in our SOM Connection. Most (we believe all) classical paradice are borne of a classical monistic view of quantum reality. Classicists believe in OGT in OGC. When two or more contexts are arranged in Escherian ways in OGC, paradice arise! We escape classical paradice by epiphanous departure of its homogeneous analytic monism and entry to a new heterogeneous quantum reality of islandic pluralism.
  • Water Glass Fullness - Dichon(1/2_full, 1/2_empty) vis-à-vis quanton(1/2_full,1/2_empty). This one is "very telling." A classical view of either half full or half empty is notably incorrect (i.e., dichotomous, and we could never objectively measure 'where' or 'how much' half is), whereas a quantum view of both half full and half empty is correct (i.e., c¤mplementary). Now consider all reality in a similar light. Newly enlightened, further consider classically dichonic "not half full" and "not half empty" in their glaring subjectivity! Once you do that, you see classicism's dim, dreary, ugly, naïve, and objective deign of feign.
  • Ferromagnetism - For you folks who are really interested in anti-gravity mechanisms, pay attention. This may be one of our most important tells of partial coherence as gravity! Think of magnetic domain alignment as partial coherence! When one iron object is partially coherent, its 'magnetic' attraction to other non-coherent iron objects increases. When we reduce its partial coherence, its attraction decreases. If gravity is indeed partial coherence and we remove or mitigate that partial coherence, we should remove or reduce gravitational attraction. Since it appears most of nature's quanton constituents are already partially coherent, and gravity is 'in' most of actuality, eliminating partial coherence of a constituent quanton may not be enough to achieve antigravity. However, quantum coherence is nonclassical in its manifestations, and we might just be surprised! E.g., consider what happens to a 1027-atom BEC when it transitions from boson (size of single atom) to fermions (~size of an adult human). (Also, consider how much easier it would be to teleport a single BEC vis-à-vis a human-sized equivalent!)

    Many of our site visitors are heavily interested in anti-gravity and humanity's inevitable solution to that 'problem.' We want to offer some clues which we know will be helpful to you. We counsel often to cease your use of CTMs and to adopt uses of QTMs. Our discussion here is a perfect example of your need to accomplish that transition. Ok, what does a classicist intend/thingk when s-he says, "anti-gravity?" They intend "anti-" as a classical negation. What do we, in Quantonics, intend/think when we say, "anti-gravity?" We intend quantum negati¤n. Quantum logical negation accepts reality as c¤mplementary (subjective, with some latched constituent quantons whose quantum variable "latching" persistencies appear objective to classicists) vis-à-vis classical logical negation insists reality is uniquely objective. Our counsel to those of you who wish to achieve quantum anti-gravity is that you must view quantum negation as subjective. Now what do we mean by subjective negation. We mean that quantum negation is strongly akin a Gestalt figure and ground. A quanton's local gravitational attractions (there are many, not classically just one) may be viewed as "figure" and its many gravitation interrelationships may be viewed as "ground." In this case "ground" is a subjective negation of "figure." See if that QTM way of think-king helps you in your anti-gravity endeavors. Doug - 28Aug2001.
  • Wobble-not - Note that superconductivity depends on this! Cooper pairs do not wobble! Electrons — as fermions — wobble, thus their flow in conductors is not coherent and we see no superconductivity! But Cooper pairs do not wobble, and thus coherently flow unrestricted through conductors. Key to superconductivity is to remove quantons' wobble interrelationships with their conductor. Scientists, e.g. at IBM, are learning how to use partial (e.g., 'spin') coherence to selectively control magnetoresistance. See Nature, Vol. 404, 'Meet the Spin Doctors,' p. 918. A very large part of future quantum technology innovation depends upon, "Spin Doctoring." Is it time for your quantum epiphany yet? 10May2000 Doug.
  • Counter(ra)-factual Definiteness - Many different quantum truth islands' outcomes agree. A denial of classicism's One Global Truth, OGT. An apropos example here is that many different quantum interpretations produce concordant experimental outcomes. Read Nick Herbert's excellent Quantum Reality, and see our table of his enumeration of quantum interpretations restated in MoQese and extended with our own interpretation and three other quantum scientist's unique quantum interpretations. Also, browser search for this topic in our recent Bell Theorem Study, and see our comments in our review of Bergson's Creative Evolution on 'contrafactual definiteness.'
  • Noncommutativity, nondistributivity, nonfactorizability - Some classical mathematics operations do not work. (Our Quantonics opinion is that classical mathematics, in general, does/will not work. We predict many will 'discover' this 'problem' early during Millennium III.) See our QELR remediation of commutative.
  • Least: action, time - Interpreted as a Quantonic heuristic of nonactuality's infratype as isoconic isoflux, one may infer ~isoparabolics. All nonactual n-tuple isononpreferential paths (see Stein), thus, are isoconic isosections. All actual fermionic free-motion preferential interrelationships with nonactuality are thus parabolic (conic sections).
  • Contrarotation Experiment - Recently we wrote an email to Keith Moffatt about his news brief on Euler's disk. Our conjecture is Euler's disk behaves as it does due to fermionic wobble. How can we cancel fermionic wobble macroscopically? Contrarotation! We want to build a 'Quantonic Disk!' We propose an experiment: We need three disks - two hollow disks and a third solid disk. Larger hollow disk subsumes smaller hollow disk which subsumes smaller solid disk. All disks are concentric. Inner two disks have nearly identical masses. Outer disk is rigid but ideally very small in mass compared two inner two disks. Inner two disks require some mechanism which allows them to be contrarotated to achieve balance of their angular momenta. Rotation rate should be high (e.g. 10,000 rpm) and 'bearing' friction should be very low to allow time for our experiment. We want to perform Euler's disk experiment (as described by Moffatt) with our own macroscopically '~bosonic' disk! What will happen? Our experiment will help us answer that question. Our disk will not perfectly model a macroscopic boson because contrarotational coherence is partial and our outer disk, depending on its mass ratio to our two inner contrarotating disks, retains partial fermionic affects on our experiment. Unsure any hard disk drive manufacturers would be interested in this experiment, but it appears to have value for HDDs used in high velocity, high G-rate-change platforms. Toy manufacturers might also value this idea! If you are interested in using this idea, especially to perform our experiment, please contact us at Quantonics. 19Nov2000 Added comment on retroreflection: Another interesting experiment to try with our contrarotating Quantonic Disk is to treat it like a hockey puck! What we want do is to 'shoot' it obliquely into a pool table's edge. Some coherent Fermions will retroreflect. This is wholly a nonclassical expectation. Physicists call it Andreev reflection. When it occurs, a coherent fermion strikes a barrier obliquely and reflects back upon its inbound path! See David Voss' brief entitled, "Quantum Trick Shots," in Science, Vol. 280, 22May1998, p. 1213. Doug. See our Dougle Gyroscope model of a macroscopic boson here. Doug - 11Dec2001.
