“… the separation between past, present, and future is only an illusion, although a convincing one.” – Albert Einstein

“The amplituhedron is not built out of space-time and probabilities; these properties merely arise as consequences of the jewel’s geometry… Encoded in its volume are the most basic features of reality that can be calculated, “scattering amplitudes,” which represent the likelihood that a certain set of particles will turn into certain other particles upon colliding.

… The 60-year-old method for calculating scattering amplitudes — a major innovation at the time — was pioneered by the Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman….“The number of Feynman diagrams is so explosively large that even computations of really simple processes weren’t done until the age of computers,” Bourjaily said….In 1986, it became apparent that Feynman’s apparatus was a Rube Goldberg machine.”

  1. In 2007 I saw the movie “What The Bleep Do We Know Anyway”. I cried and laughed for a couple of days because I know the biomechanical means by which one becomes “The Observer”. Ive become a kid in a candy store. Thanks to you for trying to understand. Wow the world is waking up. Yee Haaaaw.
