2020-02-24: How Decoherence Splits The Quantum Multiverse

  • 03:38: ... - a quantum particle seems to pass through two slits simultaneously as a probability wave that ultimately “collapses” to leave it as a single position on a ...

2020-02-18: Does Consciousness Influence Quantum Mechanics?

  • 02:51: Instead it travels as an abstract “probability wave” - something we call a wavefunction.
  • 02:58: That probability wave defines the location of the electron at any point IF you try to measure it.

2018-09-20: Quantum Gravity and the Hardest Problem in Physics

  • 02:41: That math started with the Schrodinger equation, which tracks these probability waves through space and time.

2016-08-10: How the Quantum Eraser Rewrites the Past

  • 01:19: It's a probability wave that does all the usual wave-like stuff like making interference patterns, until something happens to collapse it.
