Science has opened the door for mankind to explore the world and explore the universe. In ancient times, due to the lack of scientific guidance, all phenomena in the macroscopic world could only be explained by gods. With the continuous progress of human civilization, after entering the age of science and technology hundreds of years ago, mankind can finally use science to explore and understand the world.
There are too many natural phenomena and natural laws in this world. Through the continuous efforts of scientists, we basically have a certain understanding of everything in the macro world. Many macroscopic phenomena can be well explained by science, such as “gravity” and “inertia” which are very familiar in our daily lives.
“Gravity” and “inertia” are ubiquitous in the macroscopic world. We use these laws of physics to constantly understand the world, so that people have a better life, and help mankind get out of the earth and begin to explore the universe. And the macro-physical theories and laws that we have researched on the earth are also adapted to the macro-world of the universe.
In the macro world, scientists have basically found no phenomena and laws that cannot be explained by science. Even if there are some natural phenomena, we still do not have a completely correct scientific explanation, but they do not violate the laws of physics in our cognition.
Einstein is the greatest physicist in modern times, and his mass-energy method and theory of relativity have contributed immensely to mankind. The cognition and understanding of the macroscopic world may not be comparable to Einstein in modern history. Even so, there is a phenomenon that puzzles Einstein and is difficult to explain by science.
So what is the phenomenon? It is not a physical phenomenon in the macro world, but comes from the quantum mechanical system of the micro world. I believe many people know that the macroscopic world is not the whole universe, and there is a more mysterious microscopic quantum world behind it.
Quantum mechanics is a summary of scientists studying the laws of particle motion in the microscopic world. In the early twentieth century, in 1900, Planck’s research on black body radiation aroused the curiosity of scientists. In the following period, many scientists began to study microscopic particles. explore.
Quantum mechanics has opened the door to the microscopic world, allowing us to see another wonderful and mysterious world of particles. Quantum mechanics naturally belongs to the field of material exploration. As an authority on physics, Einstein is naturally curious about the microscopic world and full of desire for exploration.
But when Einstein walked into the door of the micro world, he found that this world was completely different from the macro world. Scientists believe that the physical laws of the macro world should also be able to adapt to the micro world, but in the end, scientists discovered a fact that is difficult for people to accept: the physical laws of the micro world are completely different from the macro world.
In the microscopic world, the laws of motion of quantum and particles are completely different, and even scientists cannot judge the position of quantum without observing, because the trajectory of quantum activity is unpredictable and can only be judged by probability. In the macro world, the state of an object will hardly change without external interference, so it can be measured by an accurate scale.
Everything in quantum power breaks our common sense and cognition. After Einstein’s research and exploration, he had to change his attitude. To enable such a great scientist to change his attitude towards quantum mechanics, we have to mention a complete subversion of people’s beliefs. Known quantum phenomenon: “quantum entanglement”.
I believe many of my friends have heard of quantum entanglement. It is a phenomenon that has occurred in the quantum world that confuses scientists the most. We all know that things in the macroscopic world are subject to physical laws. For example, Einstein’s theory of relativity tells us that the speed of light is the fastest speed of matter, and no matter can surpass the speed of light.
The limit theory of the speed of light is the correct law of physics in the macroscopic world. Scientists have conducted a large number of particle experiments. No matter how hard they try, the speed of particles can only approach the speed of light at a limit of 99.9999%. In the macroscopic world, the possibility of moving at the speed of light is communication.
It is precisely because of the limitation of the speed of light that our communication with the Mars probe will be delayed, and the farther the probe is from the earth, it will naturally take longer for the wireless signal to be transmitted back. In addition, information transmission in the macro world will be restricted by other physical laws, and information transmission cannot be carried out under any circumstances.
Quantum entanglement is different. It ignores all physical laws in the macroscopic world. No matter distance or other physical factors, it cannot interfere with the entanglement of two particles. The speed of the two entangled quanta is when they affect each other. Beyond the speed of light, it can even be said that there is no speed limit.
No matter how far the two quantum distances are, even in two different galaxies that are far apart, the quantum can react instantly under the action of entanglement. This kind of mysterious and mysterious phenomenon is absolutely impossible to exist in the macroscopic world, because it violates many macroscopic laws of physics, and it is subversive to the cognition of scientists, and it even makes us think deeply.
Why does a quantum entanglement phenomenon make us feel terrified to think carefully? Because of its existence, we think of a super long-distance transmission technology in some scientific films and scientific works. This kind of transmission technology is to decompose a person’s particles, and then reorganize the particles at the other end to achieve ultra-long-distance transmission.
The existence of quantum entanglement, in theory, this kind of material ultra-long-distance transport technology can be realized in the future. If it is realized, not only will humans walk on the earth more quickly and conveniently, but also enable us to move from the earth in an instant. To reach other planets, just build an interstellar portal on other planets.
But if this happens, a question arises. After a person enters the star gate and is broken down into particles and then recombined, will he still be the same person? I believe that no scientist can give the answer. Although the reorganized person’s mind and consciousness are still the original self, is the reorganized body still the same?
Of course, quantum mechanics wants to really explore and understand that it is far from comparable to the macro world. And human beings’ current research and exploration of quantum mechanics may not even count as the most basic entry point. The phenomena in quantum mechanics do not violate the laws of science. The main reason why these phenomena subvert the cognition of scientists is mainly because we do not have better instruments and technologies to explore the quantum world.
As long as science continues to develop and advance, one day in the future we can truly enter the quantum world and find the laws of physics that are suitable for the quantum world. At that time, phenomena such as quantum entanglement can be well explained and applied in our daily lives.
We can foresee that the exploration and research of the quantum world may be the key for human beings to achieve a qualitative leap in the future. Once quantum entanglement understands the laws of physics, we can realize quantum communication regardless of distance. It is of great significance for humans to explore the communication of the universe. . With quantum communication that ignores distance, we can truly go to the interstellar and make human civilization an interstellar civilization.
