Can Quantum Mechanics Be The Key To Allow Us To Escape 3D Spatial Fabric So We Could Travel Through Time?

In the previous blog post “To Travel Through Time I Think We Need To Exit Our Own 3D Universe And Enter 4D Universe” I suggested that we could escape our three-dimensional world to a higher dimensional world in order for us to do time travel.  The question is how are we going to do it?  Easy to say than actually do it.  For obvious reasons, we can easily imagine up the problem, find an imaginary solution according to the power of deduction, but sometimes it would be impossible for us to put the power of deduction into practice.  In this case, it’s currently impossible for us humans to escape our three-dimensional universe.  Simply put, we don’t have the tech to do so.

In order for us to have the tech to escape our 3D-universe, we need an exact, practical know-how method with precise steps to produce a tech in which we could use to escape our 3D-universe.  Obviously, we don’t have such knowledge.  Nonetheless, I don’t even have to convince you that we can travel to the moon nowadays because we obviously could escape our homeworld which is earth.  We’ve been sending satellites to circling earth for scientific data and whatnot, and so I don’t see why we couldn’t be even more ambitious in the regards to exploring the outer space.  One step beyond the final frontier would be time travel.

Time travel is a science fiction that we probably won’t be able to put into practice, if ever, in a foreseeable future as it’s the stuff that is too way out there — too crazy to put into practice for us humans in our current evolution.  We couldn’t even yet achieve a technology which could allow us to travel between galaxies.  In my opinion, unless we achieve the ability to jump between galaxies to shorten our trip in space, we probably won’t ever have the time, the tech know-how, nor the will to even think about achieving time travel.

Nonetheless, none of the barriers I’d mentioned would stop our imagination from running wild in regards to time travel.  Movies, books, and whatnot have been exploring the fictional science of time travel for many years already.  I still think we need someone, a little crazier than normal, to actually explore the math and whatever about time travel.

Personally, I like to chime in a bit on how should we approach in finding a method to allow us to escape 3D-world so we could enter a higher dimension such as the 4D-universe so we could at least have some hope in achieving time travel.  So let me ask you to imagine something that is so weird OK?

Imagine a transparent, plastic bag which holds some water inside, but the bag is riddled with small holes.  Instead of escaping from the bag, the water is comfortably swirling inside the bag normally when one shakes the bag up.  Puzzled?  A bag with thousands of holes, yet water won’t be spilled.  Not even a single drop water would be spilled through this bag.  Still puzzling?

What kind of a monster bag is this?  You probably want to have one right now, right?  Well, this bag won’t exist yet unless my imagination becomes a reality.  As of now, the sun is still rising in the east and settling in the west, and so no, the reality isn’t yet capable of turning my imagination into something real just yet.

Nonetheless, let’s push forward with our imaginative hole riddled bag that is being filled with unspillable water.  The idea is that the holes are inexplicable small to the point that no water molecule could spill through.  Thus water could not be spilled from this leaky bag.

Since the water could not escape the bag, and so the water is just comfortably swirling inside the bag as normal.  Imagine our 3D-universe is like this bag.  It got holes that could allow us to escape to 2D, 4D, 5D-universe and so forth, but we simply can’t get through these holes to escape our 3D-universe.  We simply just don’t have the tech or it’s just impossible for us humans to do so without some sorts of futuristic science or pure magic or godly power.

The idea isn’t too weird though if we correlate this to quantum mechanics.  If my shady knowledge of quantum mechanics isn’t too off course, then I think using quantum mechanics we can somewhat point ourselves to clues that could allow us to glimpse at a higher dimensional world.

In the quantum world, things don’t behave normally as how we would expect in our own large, physical world.  Basically, in the quantum world, things seem to be inexplicably appeared and disappeared into places that we could not track or measure.  Is this still true with our current tech?  I’m not sure if we can actually yet track things in the quantum world yet, but if we can this would be awesome.  If we haven’t yet discovered how to do this, then I guess let me just use quantum mechanics to correlate to what is relevant in this blog post — to satisfy my ego.

This is just a pure speculation and got nothing to even come close to fact.  I speculate that in quantum world there are holes that are so small, inexplicable small, that could allow things in the quantum world to slip in and out of the current dimensional world that we’re living in which is the 3D-universe.  Of course, this is outrageous.  I have not read anything which suggests this could be the case.  This is just a pure speculation on my part.

Let’s just assume that in our 3D universe, in the quantum mechanics scale of things, there are inexplicable small holes that could allow things to slip out of 3D spatial space.  If this is true, then at least this could allow us to imagine that one day there will be a technology which could teleport us through such a hole and allow us to escape our 3D-universe.  On the other side, it could be 2D, 4D, 5D, and you know whatnot dimensional space that we could enter as we exit our very own 3D spatial fabric.

I Dream Of Parallel Worlds

This is one of my fantasies.  I fantasize that whenever I dream while sleeping, I actually have a glimpse into a life of myself in a parallel world.  There maybe endless number of parallel worlds out there, and so I would have endless different dreams of this sort.  Although this is a fantasy of mine, but it does bring up the topic of how strange of a world when we scale things down to the level of quantum mechanics.

Quantum mechanics is a field in which people are studying things at a scale that cannot be seen with naked eyes.  Obviously, this is how I’ve described quantum mechanics, and it’s rather plain.  The official definition of quantum mechanics is much more elegant.  Regardless of the definition of quantum mechanics, the important point I want to point out in regarding to quantum mechanics is that it’s rather strange, because quantum mechanic scientists point out that matter can behave as both particle and wave.  This means matters in quantum scale (e.g., electron, proton, neutron) can be both particle and wave at the same time.

Quantum mechanic scientists use all sorts of experiments such as shooting individual electron through a barrier with slits to explain this duality behavior (i.e., behaving as both particle and wave) of quantum mechanical things.  So, it’s easier for us to imagine each grain of crushed rock as a particle, but it’s harder for us to imagine each grain of crushed rock as a wave.  Nonetheless, since each grain of crushed rock can multiply upon one another to form wave of grains, I guess we can imagine a dune or wave of grains of crushed rock.  Perhaps, we can make an assumption that the duality behavior of a quantum mechanical thing allows it as a particle to be multiplied into wave.  Or we can also say the potential of all things can be both particle and wave.  For an example, we can also realize the form of a thing in quantum mechanical level is also made of wave of particles.

From the realization of duality behavior of all things in quantum mechanical level, quantum mechanics scientists realize even stranger phenomenons such as spooky action at a distance.  Furthermore, from the realization of duality behavior of all things in quantum scale, quantum mechanic scientists reluctantly accept that the specific location of any individual quantum thing is uncertain.  This means a particle at quantum mechanical level would appear in place that is not so precisely predictable.  Wave may explain why a particle in quantum mechanical level is behaving this way.

How is all this has any relatable connection to my fantasy?  Well, my dreams are always appearing to be out of this world, because none of my dreams can make any sense when I’m awake.  While I’m asleep, these dreams strangely seem to be making sense as if I relive a part of my life in a parallel world.  Quantum mechanic scientists probably suspect that things on the scale of quantum mechanical level may be able to seep through parallel worlds if there are to be parallel worlds in reality.  Of course, I cannot expect my fantasy to become true, but I like to fantasize that my dreams are indeed allowing me to glimpse into the parallel worlds.

Quantum Entanglement Might Not Exist?

I’m nowhere near sufficient in QM (Quantum Mechanics) knowledge to dabble with the topic of quantum entanglement.  Nonetheless, I’ve found this topic to be very intriguing.  So, what is quantum entanglement anyway?  If I’m not wrong and had understood what I’d read correctly on quantum entanglement, to put in a way in which a layman can understand, quantum entanglement is a term which coins the phenomenon of two particles that physically interacted first but then separated on purpose (by design in whatever fashion) so one could test the correlative behaviors of one particle would exert on the other or vice versa while the two particles were separated by a mind boggling distance.  I think that was a run-on sentence, but anyhow…  Anyhow, quantum entanglement is acceptable to some quantum mechanics folks, because they had other theories and tests to prove that quantum entanglement is possible.  So, let us argue that the folks who believe quantum entanglement is possible might be wrong.  If quantum entanglement is possible, then how is it possible since Einstein’s special relativity theory (as other said) describes nothing can travel faster than light?  Quantum entanglement seems to violate this very rule.

When someone witnesses quantum entanglement somehow, the consensus is that some hidden mechanics had allowed the passing of information from one particle to another at the speed that is seemingly to be instantaneous.  With this speed, it appears not even light can travel this fast.  Then the same quantum mechanics folks all agree among themselves that so far they believe no classical information can be transferred back and forth by quantum entanglement phenomenon, therefore the classical modes of traveling in relation to the idea of nothing can travel faster than light still holds true.  For whatever to get to point B from point A or whatever information to get pass to point B from point A, a mode of travel or passing information has to occur.  Probably through the no faster than light rule proposed by Einstein’s special relativity theory which has quantum mechanics folks agree that quantum entanglement phenomenon cannot allow classical modes of traveling.  Also, in reality no classical mean of delivering information has been done with quantum entanglement, therefore these quantum mechanics folks still take the rule of no faster than light speed to be correct.

By now you probably would already confuse what is classical this and that right?  At first I was like what on earth is this classical this and that too.  Nonetheless, it’s just a term which describes the reality that humans perceive.  So here is an example of what I mean by classical this and that.  Let say classical mode of traveling is how a car would move normally on a street, and it’s still classical even though the car might move at the speed of light as long we humans can perceive the elements that allow the car to behave in such a way.  For quantum entanglement, we humans cannot perceive what specific mode of traveling or passing of information which quantum entanglement has used to allow the two particles of the same (i.e., the behaviors of the two particles are well known beforehand) to interact with each other.  OK, so I digress.

What interesting though is that some quantum mechanics folks think quantum entanglement exists, but they might have to contend with the EPR paradox.  According to Wikipedia, EPR paradox is the paper that proposed Quantum Mechanics is incomplete since quantum entanglement cannot be explained thoroughly, and this paper was the joint efforts of Albert Einstein, Boris Podolsky, and Nathan Rosen.  If I’m not wrong, EPR paradox disagrees with how people perceive quantum entanglement is that classical modes of traveling must be accounted for, because the otherwise would prove to be rather imaginative.  For some reason, I find this sort of analysis makes more sense than otherwise.  Then again, what do I know since my knowledge on Quantum Mechanics is near zero.

I suspected that quantum entanglement might have been just how EPR paradox had suspected.  Of course, I don’t even know enough about EPR paradox proposal to know that my own quantum entanglement suspicion is actually correlated with EPR paradox’s quantum entanglement suspicion.  Quantum entanglement suspicion?  I meant this in a way that quantum entanglement might not actually occur!

The YouTube video right after this paragraph explains a theory known as Bell’s Inequality which disproves EPR paradox conclusion on Quantum Mechanics and quantum entanglement.  Basically, as I dug furthermore into EPR paradox, it seemed that Einstein and his fellows believed and proposed that besides the classical modes of traveling (i.e., nothing can travel faster than light unless there is something that is…), in order for quantum entanglement to be true, there must be hidden variables that inherited by the particles.  Perhaps EPR paradox argues that without the explanation of hidden variables, it is impossible for the two particles of the same (i.e., the behaviors of the two particles are well known beforehand) to have the ability to know about each other intentions and to correlate the behaviors, and on top of that to do so within the luxury of ignoring the classical distance limitation (i.e., distance doesn’t matter).  Nonetheless, as I had mentioned earlier, the video right after this paragraph disproves the idea of there would be hidden variables.

Of course, before I state anything further, I wish to state that this is what I think and have come to term with my understanding of quantum entanglement and I have no expertise at all in regarding to this topic, therefore what I state next will only be of my own belief and not have any value to anyone unless someone thinks in the same manner in regarding to quantum entanglement as I do.  In my opinion, perhaps Einstein and his fellows who proposed EPR paradox are half correct.  I also believe the video above this paragraph does make sense, therefore I think Bell’s Inequality might have been right about disproving EPR paradox’s hidden variables suggestion.  So, why am I think Einstein and his fellows who orchestrated the EPR paradox paper are half correct?  In my opinion, it’s because I think Einstein and his fellows might have  a point that two particles of the same (i.e., that we know how the two particles would behave if indeed one has the influence over the other or vice versa) cannot know each other intentions or even communicate with each other at such great distances without resorting to classical modes of traveling or passing (i.e., passing information).  Instead of believing there is quantum entanglement, I like to think that it’s all about probability.

When I speak of probability, I meant that perhaps the measurements of the results of the behaviors of any two particles might occur within the probability, and this probability allows the capability of any two particles to behave according to their maximum potential (i.e., their inherited possible behaviors).  So, in this way, if Alice is measuring particle number 1 and thinking that Bob will see particle number 2 to behave as how she would think it would have in this particular scenario/experiment, then Alice assumes that there is a quantum entanglement going on between the two particles (i.e., that meant to be of the same).  Nonetheless, I think Alice would be wrong on assuming like that since I believe that particle number 2 might have the probability to behave in a way that Alice assumes it would be.  Confusing?  Don’t be, because I might be completely wrong anyway.  With my limited knowledge, if there is any, on Quantum Mechanics and quantum entanglement, I cannot be too sure that I know what I’m talking about.  Still, with what I understood so far on this particular topic (i.e., quantum entanglement), even if I’m wrong, nothing has yet changed my mind about why I think quantum entanglement might just be only an imagination.  Come to think of it, imagination does exist, because we imagine it in our mind.  Nonetheless, some imagination might become something real, others just stay as the figments of imagination.
