Theory of Everything-part 1

This will be one of many articles I will be writing on the ‘Theory of Everything’. In this part I will only give just an introduction and some gimps of Quantum Physics

Man has been wondering for explanation and reasons for his observation since the first day. With history many theories were given like Aristotle four element, Earth being the center of universe and then sun for the universe. Some of them hold up there acceptance for short time and some for centuries.

The new of these theories was given by Newton which is called Newtonian model of the universe. According to this model the universe is governed by natural laws like those of the three famous laws of motion.

One of the feature of this theory was that every moving object follows a definite path, say from A to B. Once we know the starting point and the path to be followed we can predict the destination of the moving object either based on some laws or past experience.

This theory best describes the macro-level objects but it failed for the explanation at atomic level. With the double slit experiment observation a look for new model was inevitable. This theory was formulated by Richard Feynman with his  double slit experiment which is the base for Quantum Physics.

Here I will give some of the mysteries of this theory and the mysteries of Quantum Physics in general and in some later post I will go in the details of all of them.

According to Quantum theory when you leave your office the  chair on which you were just sitting a moment ago, may disappear and will reappear as soon as you come back. This is to say for the existence of any object the observation is necessary.

When you kick a ball it will not follow just one path rather I will go through an indefinite no of paths before hitting the final destination.In those fraction of seconds it might go to the far the building roof just outside the field, to the neighbor city or may go to the far star or galaxy.

The path taken by the object in going from point A to point B is the vectorial sum of all those paths. And in terms of probability the probability that the object will reach point B is the fraction of sum of  probabilities of all indefinite paths.

There is no one single ‘past’ or ‘history’ of any object. There are indefinite no of possible pasts but once we observe an object then that is taken as the past of that object and similarly there are indefinite futures for any object.

These are some of the mysteries of Quantum Physics and there are many others. I will go in details in later posts.
