QuoteOriginally posted by: NQuoteOriginally posted by: rmaxQuoteOriginally posted by: NThe particle is a type of (fancy) wave and as a wave it goes through both slits. To observe it, you need to time-average or take the absolute value.But when I place my detector at a slit, I measure a single discrete event at one slit, and no on the other. I also no longer get a diffraction pattern on my screen, but get two spikes...That's exactly right... A detector in order to work, must interact with the wave and thus changes the geometry of the experiment.It turns out that this is a very hard experiment to instrument properly. That's why I stick to math and QF.It sounds then that your initial post was rather tabloid and trollish in nature. Since what you actually mean to say is not that Uncertainty Principal is a bunch or c**p, but rather that you have found an explanation for uncertainty principal, the underlying mechanics as it were. Uncertainty still exists in your theory, and whenever you transform back to the observables you will recreate uncertainty principal, otherwise you're theory would not tally with experiment. You have merely found the mechanics behind it. Such a would be equivilent to Einstein calling Newtons work a bunch of c**p, while relativity still produces the same results slow speeds/low gravity.Perhaps this is a result of too long in finance, where your idea is only heard if you market it and shout about it. In Physics it is not generally the way, and people will read most intently an understated paper (read the bell labs one on cosmic background for an excellent example). Perhaps Newton is your role model, rather than the more admirable Faraday. Remember Newton died alone, without friends, but with many enemies.Should you decide to publish, and I would urge you to since a result such as this could be of immense value, particularly if you can find some experimental evidence, then please let us know so that we can read it. If you are looking for someone to peer review then I might be able to suggest some string theorists who would be able to help.Good luck!I look forward to your paper.
