Presenting Ignorance as Knowledge: The Standard Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics

One of the unique and most innovative aspects of quantum mechanics is the concept that the state of any subatomic particle cannot be known before it is measured. For instance, before we measure the position of the particle, it can be in any of many possible positions.… Read the rest

The Speed of Light and a Paradigm Shift in Physics

Einstein’s 1905 special theory of relativity presumes that the speed of light in vacuum, which is denoted by the letter “c,” is constant at around 300,000 km/sec. The speed of light through transparent material, however, is lower than c. Einstein’s theory also claims that c is the highest speed in the universe.… Read the rest
