Hi all Ill start with saying I am very new to all this. I am a very geometric oriented person and I view things as images and not equations. So most times I can figure out and know how things work but I just can't explain how they work in terms or equations. I have just started studying quantum physics and could possibly use some adjustments to my perception in the matter so I could be misunderstanding but here goes... I am wondering if I could get the opinions and teachings of some people here who are allot smarter than I about this thought that popped into my mind. Again... maybe this is already out there as part of a theorem but as I stated I am new and haven't study in depth yet about quantum physics. So on the thought of perpetual motion. We have seen and heard much about this "coined" phrase of perpetual motion. Most people don't understand its implications and thus use the term incorrectly when speaking about a well engineered system that "appears" perpetual at the finite moment but in actuality is a digression of energy rather then a constant with no loss. It came to mind today. I remember reading how in quantum physics electrons seem to "quantum leap" thus it is impossible to locate their exact location at any given moment. Quantum leaping suggesting electrons are existent inter dimensionally. Leaving one dimension to another and back again giving the illusion that they are "disappearing" and "reappearing" in and out of existence. My thought was this. Is their proof that the system of the atom is one that digresses with time according to the "laws" of physics or is it actually a system which maintains and equal energy through time. If it digresses I may be off track. Do we die because our atoms slow down and destabilize or do we die because we in our dimension fail because our laws of physics state we have expended our maximum out put as a being. OK so the core of my thought... if electrons quantum leap wouldn't that mean they essentially enter a different dimension and for that time while existing in that dimension they share the physics of that dimension which would mean they expend the energy in that dimension that had been obtained within the first dimension. Supposing multiple dimensions do not share the same output of our dimensional physics but instead hold their own enclosed system yet are regulated by the same fundamental laws. Would it be safe to say the atom holds the properties of perpetual motion because of quantum leaping? Now I agree in our dimension perpetual motion goes against our laws of physics because it states that the natural digression or expenditure of energy can be over come. But what if it is possible to achieve through quantum leaping? Sharing energy with the other dimension in which case the electron holds an equal "momentum"????? in other words if it expended the energy in our dimension's system of physics it would essential "slow down" the electron but instead it expends the energy in the other dimensions and is then reinstated into the first dimension to "regain" its original measurement of energy. In our dimension it would appear perpetual that it never lost energy nor gained any but in essence it would complete the natural laws of physics in the other dimension where we wouldn't see it... Did I make sense? I don't know. Just a thought. I could be wrong. Any statements would be appreciated. please respond reasonably I already stated I am new, if I am off just teach me where I am wrong so I can be corrected. We were all once drooling infants who needed to learn if you put one apple next to the other it makes two apples.... :-) Thanks all!
