Observation,From quantum locality to Macro Domain

In summary, the conversation discusses the relationship between quantum systems and observers, specifically in terms of their size and the laws of observation. It also questions the validity of the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle and the understanding of scale and magnitude in this context. However, the conversation becomes unclear and unproductive when one participant repeatedly responds with questions instead of providing explanations.

Does a Quantum System know about an observer before the Observer can know about the Quantum System?

Quantum domains are small, Macro Domains are larger,so when one looks from a Macro Domain to one that is smaller(Quantum) one first has to locate the Quantum System to be observed, then because of the observation laws, ie..HUP there are only certain measures one can do, and one has to do these independantly.

If one reverse's the process, where the Quantum 'measures' the Macro System/Observer..one finds that the imprecise measure from:Macro to Quantum domains..gets reversed into:Quantum to Macro system measure always involves certainty?

Its easier for small entities to locate larger entities, by default.

The HUP law cannot be valid for the measure from Quantum Locality to Macro Locality..the direction of where you measure from must have a baring on paramiters of certainty against Uncertainty, can this be possible?

Before asking if the HUP is invalidated, what do you really understand about the HUP?

Perhaps you may like to start by defining your definition of Scale in context to Magnitude? :rolleyes:

If you are only able to answer questions with another question, it will be difficult to understand your initial question.

My question is very precise (I think, in the context of this forum). While your initial question and this subsequent one is not very clear (in my modest opinion).
If you do not want to provide some explanations when we ask you, it is your freedom, however do not be surprised in not getting an answer.

1. What is observation in the context of quantum locality and the macro domain?

In the context of quantum locality and the macro domain, observation refers to the act of measuring or detecting a physical quantity or property of a system. This can include properties such as position, velocity, or energy. In quantum mechanics, the act of observation can also affect the state of the system being observed.

2. How does observation in the macro domain differ from observation in the quantum realm?

In the macro domain, observation typically involves large-scale objects and can be measured without significantly affecting the state of the system. However, in the quantum realm, the act of observation can significantly alter the state of the system being observed due to the principles of quantum mechanics.

3. What is the significance of quantum locality in the study of observation?

Quantum locality, also known as the principle of locality, states that an object can only be affected by its immediate surroundings. In the context of observation, this means that the act of measuring or observing a system in one location should not have an immediate effect on a system in another location. This is important in understanding the limitations of observation in quantum mechanics.

4. How does the observer's perspective influence the act of observation?

The observer's perspective can influence the act of observation in two ways. First, the observer's position and frame of reference can affect the measurements of the observed system. Second, the observer's expectations and beliefs can influence the interpretation of the observed data. This is known as the observer effect and is an important consideration in the study of observation.

5. Can observation bridge the gap between quantum locality and the macro domain?

While observation plays a crucial role in understanding the behavior of systems in both quantum locality and the macro domain, it cannot fully bridge the gap between the two. This is because the principles of quantum mechanics and classical physics are fundamentally different, and cannot be reconciled through observation alone. Further research and understanding is needed to fully bridge this gap.
