I'm really puzzled at our perception of fundamental physical reality… I’ve got it right or all wrong? (I am no scientist, just a curious person, so please bear with me.) Some constants first: - Planck time (PT): 5.4×10−44 s - Planck length (PL): 1.6×10^-35 m - Electron radius (EL): 2.4×10^-17 m - Light speed (LS): 299792458 m/s - Electron speed (ES1): 299792456 m/s (4 GeV beam) - Electron speed (ES2): 2200000 m/s (in hydrogen atom) - Age of Universe (AU): 4.3*10^17 s (13.7 billion years) Imagine one electron traveling 1 meter at the speed ES1 (almost as the speed of light), and that we record this with a perfect recording system (for this thought experiment let’s dismiss all sorts of technical or physical limitations). If I am not wrong, main stream science says that space-time is continuous and not discrete, but nonetheless, let’s imagine that space-time is discrete, where the smallest measurable length is Planck length. (In the end, it doesn't really matter if time is continuous or discrete, Plank length is still the smallest theoretical length, while smallest practical measurable length is way larger.) As I’ve already learned, a fundamental particle, like an electron, is not really a solid particle but it exists as a “wave packet” that is distributed over space-time, so, in truth it would move in steps much smaller than Plank length or Plank time, because it is distributed over many space-time points… But to make things simpler, let’s say that we count only the steps which are of “full” Plank length. So, my question is, how many frames per second (FPS) would we record with such a perfect camera? Well, the way I see it it’s simply 1m / PL, which is about 6x10^34 FPS. Now, what looks most curious to me, almost incredible, is that if we were to review such a recording in a human time-scale, on our TV, which is 30 FPS in USA, where we’d look just 1 second at every frame (step of that motion) it would take us about as much time as the age of Universe multiplied by itself, to review it! Which means that our perception of reality is incredibly slow compared to reality itself (if I remember it correctly our awareness “records” few events per second), so, we actually miss out most of the happening in this reality/Universe… Which makes me consider that if there were some kind of aware beings who operate in a much faster time-scale, it might happen that they already visited us, or might be right here among us, but we weren’t / aren't even aware of them – to them we might appear as if we are frozen in time, and they might pass right besides us and we’d not even notice it… Is it only me finding this fascinating?
