The Future of… 9 – Quantum Stuff
Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner
July 1, 2017
[Beginning of recorded material]
Rick Rosner: However, we’re talking about quantum events and the universe consists of macro objects, which are composed of quantum particles acting in quantum ways. Where everything calms down to Newtonian behaviour, the macro world is like the 32-year-old compared to the 19-year-old.
Scott Douglas Jacobsen: What I am imagining is a 2-dimensional grid, then you flip it 90 degrees, so it is perpendicular to your vision, then you make it bubbly along that plane for the 3-dimensional part of it. Whatever is the highest peak or lowest valley are the point at which there is the most emphasis, and that is the current moment, Kind of like that?
Rosner: Yea, yea, it’s also like a rubber band with a bundle of sticks with the rubber band pulling the sticks together. One each side, it looks like teeth sticking out. But since we live in a macro world, it lets us have relatively certain knowledge about macro events that happened in the past.
We focus a lot of information according to its storage on the world. It is basically what we do anyway. We get better and better at it. Which means that in the future, we will get better and better at simulating and replicating the past.
Which means that if you make a list of the reasons as to our inability to know the world, it might not preclude us from having the benefits of time travel. One benefit of time travel is to correct past mistakes.
A massively recordable simulatable world. There’s not reason why future people couldn’t get the wish-fulfilling aspects of time travel by going back and seeing the way things would be lie if they had done something differently.
And then another purpose of time travel is to know what the future will be like – and to avoid doing the wrong thing, testing courses of action—
