So just a fun thread/question about the game Half life, and one of the events that happen in the game called a Resonance cascade. In the game, a Resonance Cascade is basically a "quantum event" where the crystal resonates at a certain frequency, causing other particles to resonate, cascading, or rather amplifying the resonance of the crystal, and when amplified to much it creates portals and other sci-fi stuff. My question though is whether there is a parallel to this sort of thing in the real physics we know and love. In quantum mechanics, we've got wave-particle duality, in which a mathematical wave dictates the likely hood of a particle being in a certain location. I'm sure that quantum wave function resonance exists, but to what degree does it match the half life game's physics? Can the resonance of a wave function cause an avalanche effect? What would such an effect even have on a quantum system. Just to assert my stance here, no i don't believe we can create portals or other worldly dimensions. Please do not assume I'm promoting any sort of Pseudo-science, or fringe science.
