Horrible misleading illustration. The electrons dont “enter one of the slits” and then result in some bizarre pattern on the other side, they go through both slits (though even that is a vast over simplification) and interfere with themselves. At least they could have show them looking like waves in the “results”. If they wanted to be really cool they could have broken it down into the Feynman diagrams that show whats “actually” happening. Probably impossible to understand, but cool.
I enjoyed them for the most part but felt a lot of the material was very weak and sounded phoned in, with a weighty dose of self indulgence thrown in. I remember feeling like the songs had everything going for them – at least one great riff every song, obviously an amazing rhythm section, a strong vocal performance, well arranged (mostly) – but they were just missing some inexplicable element that made it truly great. I stand by my opinion that, if that record was released with zero hype and no one knew it was them playing on it, it wouldnt get anywhere near the feverish reception it got. That being said, when I finally got round to seeing them live, I thought they were much better than on record.
Nope, its actually pretty much in the middle, the reason you feel your heart beat on the left side of your chest is because the left side of the heart pumps the blood throughout the entire body whilst the right side doesnt. Hence you feel your heart beat on the left side of your chest. Also, when I said it pumps the blood all around your body, I didnt mean it literally. The heart isnt the sole pushing force that makes the blood go around your body, muscles contract and move the blood throughout your body, not the heart. So yea, TYL.
Light has mass, just not rest mass. A photon is a particle when it collides with an atomic body. If you want to visualize the transition then imagine the effect of a wave forming on the surface of a pond as the raindrop collides. Pretend this pond isnt like a normal pond though, its a float sphere. When that wave forms on the surface of the pond it will propagate across the surface until it collides with itself, producing a splash. The state of the pond holding the wave is the electromagnetic excitation of the atom induced by the photon. In order to stop light and re-emit the same particle that began the wave, we must stop the interference that can occur on the surface of the pond. Or, if we cant stop it, we must normalize it. In this case, theyre normalizing the interference so its effectively neutral; the surface of the pond is constant across the many ponds in the array. The propagation of the ripple is consistent across many ponds which are all collectively being interfered with in the same way. The nature of that interference is also changing how the surface of the ponds allow the ripple to propagate. It is effectively slowing that propagation down. At no time does the light itself actually stop. The light has collapsed from a particle into a ripple that must propagate and when it reaches the finite boundary of relaxation it will once again be emitted. Whats important is that the light is many, many raindrops (the pulse is many photons) and the surface is uniform. When the light encounters the surface, it appears to stop propagating, then in a uniform fashion the ripples travel and produce a splash all at the same time. This actually quite a fascinating thing to imagine from a relativistic point of view; the light never stopped traveling at the speed of light, the space between two points are artificially stretched within the boundaries of this bubble. Therefore the observer sees light slowing down and speeding up. Were you using the perspective of the light, nothing would change; youd simply be crossing a greater distance of space in a straight line.
If someone is fan of game of thrones, meteora is the base of this scenery.
I thought of this very same thing one time when intoxicated and watching Pittsburgh play hockey. My friends thought I sounded like a fool but today I say "HA! I am not. Other people enjoy this comedic idea in a similar manner that I do."
