Organisms might be quantum machines

    If there’s any subject that perfectly encapsulates the idea that science is hard to understand, it’s quantum physics. Scientists tell us that the miniature denizens of the quantum realm behave in seemingly impossible ways: they can exist in two places at once, or disappear and reappear somewhere else instantly.

    The one saving grace is that these truly bizarre quantum behaviours don’t seem to have much of an impact on the macroscopic world as we know it, where “classical” physics rules the roost.

    Or, at least, that’s what scientists thought until a few years ago.

    Quantum processes might be at work behind some very familiar processes

    Now that reassuring wisdom is starting to fall apart. Quantum processes may occur not quite so far from our ordinary world as we once thought. Quite the opposite: they might be at work behind some very familiar processes, from the photosynthesis that powers plants – and ultimately feeds us all – to the familiar sight of birds on their seasonal migrations. Quantum physics might even play a role in our sense of smell.

    In fact, quantum effects could be something that nature has recruited into its battery of tools to make life work better, and to make our bodies into smoother machines. It’s even possible that we can do more with help from the strange quantum world than we could without it.

    So this prompts a couple of thoughts:

    What if all this "reality" around us was created just so us Souls could experience physicality?

    What if we were the ones who actually created all this out of energy...and we just "forgot" we created it so we could really enjoy it?

    And what if it's all an ongoing "game" to keep evolving to a better and better kind of life experience?

    And what if we suddenly remembered that it's all just a really interesting Cosmic game?

    Now wouldn't that be a blast?

    Hmmmmmm.

    Yes Stargazer.

    I originally read the article headline as "Orgasms might be quantum machines" :p and thought it was mind blowing.

    I have had to read the article a couple of times, it is not easy reading.
