The Illusion of Reality

Professor Jim Al-Khalili explores how understanding the atom more deeply has forced us to rethink the nature of reality. He discovers that there might be parallel universes in which different versions of us exist, finds out that empty space isn’t empty at all, and investigates the differences in our perception of the world in the universe and the reality.

  1. the reality in our world is the law of capitalism.

    we (fake choice) choose who we work for because we are poor.

    we (fake choice) choose to put ourself in danger because we are poor.

    we (fake choice) choose put our love one in harms way because we are poor.

    we (fake choice) choose suffer a life time because we are poor..

    schrodinger’s cat is about uncertainty principle, principle of choice. and a limited choice we make in our lives. and more so, we have no choice if we are poor.
    born a slave die a slave and we don’t know it.

    this is a man made construct. nation, corporation, kings and laws.

    not nature.

  2. why doesnt any of this shit load.

  3. As far as videos made for the understanding of the lay people, like myself, this is one of the best!

  4. Wow! Best video I’ve ever seen on the subject of the development and implications of quantum science. It touches on everything important and makes the subject more comprehensible. Even if you think you have read in depth on everything quantum, watch it and you too gain something. As far as “What the bleep do we know?” go ahead and watch it but with a grain of salt. It attempts to combine quantum physics with consciousness. During its early days the field of psychology was referred to a “Pseudoscience” by those specializing in the more concrete sciences but has been the fastest growing field of study since the 1960’s and has certainly taught us a great deal. Understanding the nature of consciousness in the universe is a touchy subject sure to upset many with more traditional beliefs, but I feel it will result in the next major upheaval of our understanding of “reality”.
