Posted on by di in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

If you have been paying attention to this project for the last year or so you probably have a pretty good idea of who I am and the kind of person I am striving to be. This particular post is one that I knew I would have to write at some point and I have been looking forward to doing so if only to make some things clear before the doc comes out.

This is huge news mostly because it seems to confirm a basic tenet of quantum theory. In turn it shades the whole of Quantum Physics as something other than the …
