like a person with a background and just the background really fast, like a strobe effect. If you cycle back and forth fast enough would the person appear like normal or 50% see through?
This is what I think also, like a ghost image, I am going to try this on windows movie maker, but not sure if it let's you cycle images like that. But what if instead of a person against a background vs just the background you cycle between; 1) person against 1 background and 2) same person against another background. And If 500 cycles s-1 gives you a ghost images, wouldn't the ghost image become increasingly clearer as cycles go to infinity? So that you would be left with one person appearing as if in 2 places at the same time? I am trying to relate this to the idea of a particle being in two place at same time, which i find confusing.zoobyshoe said:I predict the person would look "see through."
A thought experiment is a mental exercise that aims to explore a concept, theory, or hypothesis by imagining a hypothetical scenario and analyzing its implications.
Alternating an image in a thought experiment involves mentally replacing an existing image with a different one and observing how it affects the scenario being imagined.
Yes, thought experiments can be used to test scientific theories by allowing scientists to explore the potential outcomes of their theories without having to conduct physical experiments.
While thought experiments can be useful in generating new ideas and hypotheses, they are limited by the fact that they are based on hypothetical scenarios and do not involve real-world data or observations.
Scientists use thought experiments in various ways, including exploring the consequences of their theories, identifying potential flaws or gaps in their hypotheses, and developing new ideas for experiments to test their theories.
