You may consider tape, grains or water as well, what you study is
clearly identified and postulates of mathematical formulation are often
discussed. In quantum mechanics, matter is that mathematical formulation
works really good even if postulates seems quite arbitrary. When
scientists work on the physical meaning of this mathematical
formulation, they have to build completely different way of thinking our
world, and sometimes quite a bit mystical way of thinking.

We'll focus during this talk on classical experiments of quantum
mechanics (Schrödinger cat, double-slit experiment) and we'll see how
multiverse theory, impossibility to consider measurement and interaction
as same phenomenon or even Wigner's interpretation of quantum mechanics
through consciousness flow from these experiments.

 

Jérôme THIBAULT is currently working as a second year PhD student at the Laboratoire de Physique under the supervision of Tommaso Roscilde.
