We have to change the wind­ing fre­quency to be mean­ing­fully dif­fer­ent from five before the sig­nal can start to bal­ance out again (Figure 6b) which leads to a much broader peak around the five beats per sec­ond. Let’s take a closer look at this. Imagine that we want to send out a radio pulse sig­nal and use the return echoes of that sig­nal to deter­mine the posi­tions and veloc­i­ties of dis­tant objects. If the par­ti­cle isn’t detected by D1, then D2 will detect the par­ti­cle later. When the aether fell out of fash­ion the medium was dropped but the wave equa­tion remained, leav­ing an open-ended ques­tion about what light was wav­ing through. Under de Broglie’s orig­i­nal assump­tion that pilot waves are mechan­i­cally sup­ported by a phys­i­cal sub-quan­tum medium, the idea that the pilot wave, In order to estab­lish that the equi­lib­rium rela­tion, Bohm and Vigier went on to note that if pho­tons and par­ti­cles of mat­ter have a gran­u­lar sub­struc­ture, anal­o­gous to the mol­e­c­u­lar struc­ture under­ly­ing ordi­nary flu­ids, then the irreg­u­lar fluc­tu­a­tions are merely ran­dom fluc­tu­a­tions about the mean (poten­tial) flow of that fluid. According to the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics, there is no fundamental reality that the quantum state describes, just a prescription for calculating experimental results. Every phys­i­cal medium has a wave equa­tion that details how waves mechan­i­cally move through it. If one of the quantities is measured with high precision, the corresponding other quantity can necessarily only be determined vaguely. Imagine many weights hang­ing from springs, all oscil­lat­ing up and down in sync, with the mass con­cen­trated towards some point (Figure 7). Interpreting these vor­tices to crit­i­cally depend on the aether (instead of allow­ing for some other medium to be the sub­strate that sup­ports them) sci­en­tists dropped the idea altogether—unwittingly throw­ing the baby out with the bath­wa­ter. This is the aim of my per­sonal favorite pilot-wave theory—quantum space the­ory. This approach objec­tively demys­ti­fies wave-par­ti­cle dual­ity, elim­i­nates state vec­tor reduc­tion, reveals the phys­i­cal nature of the wave func­tion, and exposes the geo­met­ric roots of Heisenberg uncer­tainty, quan­tum tun­nel­ing, non-local­ity, grav­ity, dark mat­ter, and dark energy—making it a can­di­date the­ory of quan­tum grav­ity and a pos­si­ble approach for a GUT. This proof was extended to the Dirac equa­tion and the many-par­ti­cle prob­lem. This condition—that “the par­ti­cle beats in phase and coher­ently with its pilot wave”—is known as de Broglie’s “guid­ing” prin­ci­ple. Note that the par­ti­cle (the col­lec­tion of hang­ing masses) is (1) oscil­lat­ing, (2) dis­persed in space (tak­ing up more than a sin­gle point), and (3) local­ized (in that it’s con­cen­trated towards some point, and not spread­ing fur­ther out over time). Condition 2: The prob­a­bil­ity dis­tri­b­u­tion of an ensem­ble of par­ti­cles described by the wave func­tion , is . The first of Einstein's thought experiments challenging the uncertainty principle went as follows: Consider a particle passing through a slit of width d. The slit introduces an uncertainty in momentum of approximately h/d because the particle passes through the wall. In other words, it is impossible to measure simultaneously both complementary quantities with greater precision than the limit defined by the Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle. He rec­og­nized that if topo­log­i­cally dis­tinct quan­tum vor­tices are nat­u­rally and repro­ducibly authored by the prop­er­ties of the aether, then those vor­tices are per­fect can­di­dates for being the build­ing blocks of the mate­r­ial world. This off-cen­tered­ness gives us a pow­er­ful way to tease out the fre­quen­cies that make up that orig­i­nal sig­nal, no mat­ter how many pure sig­nals it con­tains (Figure 4). If a sig­nal per­sists over a long period of time, then when the wind­ing fre­quency is even slightly dif­fer­ent from five, the sig­nal goes on long enough to wrap itself around the cir­cle and bal­ance out. To assist us in visu­al­iz­ing this con­nec­tion, de Broglie laid out the fol­low­ing “crude” model. And, well… the embar­rass­ing truth is that from that point on the uncer­tainty prin­ci­ple has just con­tin­ued to be reg­u­larly con­fused with the observer effect. Of course the wind­ing fre­quency (how fast we rotate the vec­tor, or wind the graph around the cir­cle) deter­mines what the graph ends up look­ing like (Figure 3). Summary —The Uncertainty Principle contrasts Einstein with Heisenberg, relativity with quantum theory, behavioralism with existentialism, certainty with uncertainty and philosophy with science—finally arriving at the inescapable Platonic conclusion that the true philosopher is always striving after Being and will not rest with those multitudinous phenomena whose existence are appearance only. Twenty-five years later, David Bohm redis­cov­ered de Broglie’s sim­pli­fied approach, and (in col­lab­o­ra­tion with de Broglie) com­pleted the for­mal­ism. This pro­posal res­ur­rected the core of Thomson’s idea—framing it in a new mold (pilot-wave the­ory). What would you give to be in possession of a theory of everything? Radar is used to deter­mine the dis­tance and veloc­i­ties of dis­tant objects. According to this pic­ture, wave-par­ti­cle dual­ity is an implicit, non-excis­able qual­ity of real­ity because “par­ti­cles” are local­ized vac­uum waves (com­plex, non-lin­ear dis­tor­tions that are con­cen­trated in a small region—solitons) sur­rounded by pilot waves that guide their motion. Are you keeping up with these exciting science discoveries? The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle occasioned the downfall of classical mechanics, which was based on the assumption of finite universal causality. This quandary comes to us not from science fiction nor logical speculations, but through a perception of quantum mechanics called the uncertainty principle. Collectively, the energy of these oscil­lat­ing weights was meant to be a metaphor for the energy of the particle—the E=mc^2 energy resid­ing in its mass. Figure 3 – Wrapping a sig­nal (one whose fre­quency is five cycles/second and dura­tion is 2 sec­onds) around a cir­cle with dif­fer­ent wind­ing fre­quen­cies. This con­tent can also be found on Thad’s Heisenberg’s uncer­tainty prin­ci­ple Quora post. The first step is to write down the Schrödinger equa­tion in its hydro­dy­namic form: Then we express fluid con­ser­va­tion via the con­ti­nu­ity equa­tion, which states that any change in the amount of fluid in any vol­ume must be equal to rate of change of fluid flow­ing into or out of the volume—no fluid mag­i­cally appears or dis­ap­pears: From this it fol­lows (given that par­ti­cles are car­ried by their guid­ing waves) that the path of any par­ti­cle is deter­mined by the evo­lu­tion of the veloc­ity poten­tial , which is: This evo­lu­tion depends on both the clas­si­cal poten­tial and the “quan­tum poten­tial” , where: That’s it. Einstein was emotionally as well as intellectually determined to prove the uncertainty principle false. Quantum space the­ory is a pilot-wave the­ory (sim­i­lar to de Broglie’s dou­ble solu­tion the­ory , the de Broglie-Bohm the­ory , Vigier’s sto­chas­tic approach ), that math­e­mat­i­cally repro­duce the pre­dic­tions of canon­i­cal quan­tum mechan­ics while main­tain­ing a com­pletely lucid and intu­itively acces­si­ble ontol­ogy. Note that instead of think­ing about some­thing that is spread out in time, we are think­ing about some­thing that is spread out over space. In 1925 Louis de Broglie dis­cov­ered that wave-par­ti­cle dual­ity also applies to par­ti­cles with mass, and became acutely inter­ested in the pilot-wave ontol­ogy. Because the vac­uum is a col­lec­tion of many quanta, its large-scale structure—represented by the extended spa­tial dimen­sions —only comes into focus as sig­nif­i­cant col­lec­tions of quanta are con­sid­ered. Let’s sur­round the source by two detec­tors with per­fect effi­ciency. This book has a chapter entitled "Encounters and Conversations with Albert Einstein" covering 17 pages. Einstein’s Intuition : Quantum Space Theory. In short, the wave func­tion has been reduced with­out any inter­ac­tion between the par­ti­cle and the first mea­sure­ment appa­ra­tus. The answer to this question can be seen directly from the two quotations of Heisenberg and Einstein. are point-like enti­ties that fol­low con­tin­u­ous and causally defined tra­jec­to­ries with well-defined posi­tions , and that every par­ti­cle is sur­rounded by a phys­i­cally real wave field that guides it, we only need three sup­ple­men­tary con­di­tions to per­fectly chore­o­graph all of quan­tum mechan­ics. In other words, the change of particle’s posi­tion with respect to time is equal to the local stream veloc­ity , where , and the “veloc­ity poten­tial” is related to the phase of by . Summary—The Uncertainty Principle contrasts Einstein with Heisenberg, relativity with quantum theory, behavioralism with existentialism, certainty with uncertainty and philosophy with science—finally arriving at the inescapable Platonic conclusion that the true philosopher is always striving after Being and will not rest with those multitudinous phenomena whose existence are appearance only. In other words, sig­nals that per­sist for shorter amounts of time cor­re­late highly with a wider range of fre­quen­cies, while sig­nals that per­sist longer in time cor­re­late with a more nar­row range of fre­quen­cies. We now have a hydro­dy­namic model that fully repro­duces the behav­ior of quan­tum par­ti­cles in terms of a poten­tial flow. It’s just that we can­not probe the world using waves with­out imbu­ing this uncer­tainty trade off. In other words, Heisenberg’s uncer­tainty prin­ci­ple is really just a man­i­fes­ta­tion of the trade off between how con­cen­trated a wave and its fre­quency rep­re­sen­ta­tion can be, applied to the premise that mat­ter is some kind of wave. That is, under the approx­i­ma­tion that par­ti­cles are point-like struc­ture­less enti­ties, it becomes nec­es­sary to addi­tion­ally assert that (for some rea­son) those par­ti­cles pos­sess a phase, which pulses in sync with the sur­round­ing pilot wave. In short, pilot-wave the­o­ries offer a more detailed pic­ture of reality—conceptually expos­ing inter­nal struc­ture to the vac­uum that gives rise to the emer­gent prop­er­ties of quan­tum mechan­ics and gen­eral rel­a­tiv­ity. The first detec­tor D1 is set up to cap­ture the par­ti­cle emit­ted in almost all direc­tions, except a small hole, and the sec­ond detec­tor D2 is set up to cap­ture the par­ti­cle if it goes through that hole. In gen­eral, the for­mula for tak­ing a Fourier trans­form is this—take a sig­nal, any sig­nal you want, wrap it around a cir­cle and plot the cen­ter of mass of the wound up graph for each wind­ing fre­quency. At first glance you might think that this sounds plau­si­ble, but log­i­cally it doesn’t work. But a sig­nal with a sharply defined fre­quency is nec­es­sar­ily spread out in time, which blurs our con­fi­dence about the object’s dis­tance, or posi­tion. Think of it as rotat­ing a vec­tor around the cir­cle with a length that is deter­mined by the height of the graph at each point in time. More def­i­nite fre­quen­cies require longer dura­tion sig­nals. Trying to pin a thing down to one definite position will make its momentum less well pinned down, and vice-versa. There’s no mys­tery here, no magic, this is exactly what we should expect because this is how waves work. Figure 5 – If the sig­nal per­sists for a long time, then wind­ing fre­quen­cies that slight dif­fer from the sig­nal fre­quency already bal­ance out the cen­ter of mass of the plot. More than 400 entries from "absolute zero" to "XMM Newton" - whenever you see this type of link on an Einstein Online page, it'll take you to an entry in our relativistic dictionary. By con­trast, pres­sure waves (also called lon­gi­tu­di­nal waves) do spread out. There are two types of soli­tons: pulse phonons, and vor­tices. Despite the ele­gance of Thomson’s idea, the entire project was aban­doned when the Michelson-Morley exper­i­ment ruled out the pos­si­bil­ity that the luminif­er­ous aether was actu­ally there. by Thad Roberts. More specif­i­cally, when a sig­nal reflects off some­thing mov­ing towards us, the peaks and val­leys of that sig­nal get squished together, send­ing us an echo with a shorter wave­length (higher fre­quency). In fact, one of the more salient and beau­ti­ful insights of the uncer­tainty prin­ci­ple is that the rela­tion­ship between posi­tion and momen­tum is the same as the rela­tion­ship between sound and fre­quency. Such non­lin­ear­i­ties could pro­duce, in addi­tion to many other qual­i­ta­tively new effects, the pos­si­bil­ity of irreg­u­lar tur­bu­lent motion.”. If that sounds some­what intim­i­dat­ing, don’t worry, it’s not as com­pli­cated as you might be think­ing. The uncertainty principle is certainly one of the most famous aspectsof quantum mechanics. the velocity that a particle can reach depending on its mass, with heavy particles that move fast having large momentum because it will take them a large or prolonged force to get up to speed and then again to stop them) of a particle. The moral of this story is that all of the aux­il­iary premises in the de Broglie-Bohm the­ory are neces­si­tated by the model’s omis­sion of the sub-quan­tum fluid that is respon­si­ble for the effects it is capturing—by what it washes out by way of approx­i­ma­tion. Figure 6a – For short dura­tion sig­nals, slightly dif­fer­ent fre­quen­cies don’t bal­ance out the plot’s cen­ter of mass with the cen­ter of the graph. It’s worth point­ing out that the Schrödinger equa­tion was orig­i­nally derived to elu­ci­date how pho­tons move through the aether—the medium evoked to explain how light is mechan­i­cally trans­mit­ted. The answer, at least in part, is that Heisenberg him­self tried to explain the uncer­tainty prin­ci­ple by claim­ing that it was sim­ply an obser­va­tional effect—a con­se­quence of the fact that mea­sure­ments of quan­tum sys­tems can­not be made with­out affect­ing those sys­tems. Pulse phonons (undu­lat­ing pulse waves) prop­a­gate through the vac­uum at the speed of light, sim­i­lar to how sound waves pass through the medium of air at the speed of sound. See Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle. Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle says that the uncertainty in momentum introduced by the slit is approximately h/d because the photon passes through the wall. It has often been regarded as the mostdistinctive feature in which quantum mechanics differs from classicaltheories of the physical world. The Uncertainty principle is also called the Heisenberg uncertainty principle. To plot the Fourier trans­form of this sig­nal, we sim­ply wind its graph around a cir­cle. With suf­fi­cient dis­rup­tion, vor­tices can also be can­celed out—by col­lid­ing with vor­tices that are equal in mag­ni­tude but oppo­site in rota­tion, or by under­go­ing trans­for­ma­tions that con­vert them into phonons. And he showed that once these vor­tices form they can per­sist with­out end, and that they have a propen­sity to aggre­gate into a vari­ety of quasi-sta­ble arrange­ments.
