“When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do, sir?” — John Maynard Keynes
July 13th, 2008 posted by JB under Random Thoughts

The video below presents the “infamous” double-slit experiment — how super small pieces of matter [photons, electrons, etc] behave both as a wave and a particle [which is really weird as it's like saying you can be in two places at the same time], and how the very act of observing them changes the way matter behaves.

This continues to blow away the minds of physicists everywhere as it shows how seriously strange reality is; The Matrix now seems a lot simpler.

Indeed, the phrase “the very act of observing changes the observed” has found its way in several fields and is often applied [incorrectly] even in normal everyday circumstances.

For further understanding, check out the double-slit experiment; also, the often-referred Schrödinger’s cat.

kelan submission ng screenplay? uuwi ako yata sa december eh. gawa tayo short? kaya lang kung gagawa man sana tayo, yung one day shoot lang. may naisip na ako na storyline/ sequences medyio madaming scenes, bad trip kapos sa oras. kahit siguro mini dv na lang gamitin natin.

bahala na, masyadong dry yung semester ko ngayon, puro theory, gusto ko nang may mapanood na nagawa ko sa CRT, or may nakikita at ginagawa na gumagalaw at 24 frames per second.

nagngagago lang yung electron sa precision nung measurement device. makulit din kasi yung electron eh, lago na sa orbit nya, pati movement.
