We present a research-based teaching sequence in introductory quantum physics using the Feynman sum over paths approach.
Our reconstruction avoids the historical pathway, and starts by reconsidering optics from the standpoint of the quantum nature of light, analysing both traditional and modern experiments.
On June 28, 2009, the world-famous physicist Stephen Hawking threw a party at the University of Cambridge, complete with balloons, hors d'oeuvres and iced champagne. Hawking had expected as much, because he only sent out invitations after his party had concluded.
It was, he said, "a welcome reception for future time travelers," a tongue-in-cheek experiment to reinforce his 1992 conjecture that travel into the past is effectively impossible. Recent experiments offer tentative support for time travel's feasibility—at least from a mathematical perspective.
For this review, 74 articles were selected and analyzed for the misconceptions, research tools, teaching strategies, and multimedia applications investigated.
Outcomes were categorized according to their contribution to the various subtopics of quantum mechanics.
Science and religion have been at odds for centuries – neither believing that the other has the truth about reality.
Today, a new spirituality (or rather a revival of ancient beliefs) and a new physics are emerging – and together they appear to be revealing a new version of “reality.” Quantum physics is progressively validating what ancient spiritual masters & mystics taught.
This would create a "closed timelike curve," or CTC, a loop that could be traversed to travel back in time.
Hawking and many other physicists find CTCs abhorrent, because any macroscopic object traveling through one would inevitably create paradoxes where cause and effect break down.
The recordings include the presenters audio plus the powerpoint presentations, photos, and text that were shown on screen during the interview or presentation. Every presenter opened a new door inside of me, expanded my consciousness in ways that I did not expect.
Being live and engaging with people from all over the globe was the most expansive experience I've had in this life.
So what does the new physics have to do with spirituality?
