Everyone,

Lucas asks us if physics can truly describe reality.

It is a great question. And it is more important since a ‘science project’ is claiming they can basically read our minds. Although they note, they could be completely wrong.

Interesting overall. Novel in several ways.

Enjoy.

I don’t know how seriously other scientists will take this, but according to this article at Phys.org, physicists at the University of Bonn believe they can develop a test that will accurately measure whether or not we are a bunch of brains in a vat. Or just one one brain in a vat. The test would depend upon our understanding of something called quantum chromodynamics, a field of study concerned with the way elementary particles are bound together by different forces.

Anyone with a thorough understanding of high energy physics can check the paper out on the arXiv website. If you can make anything of it, please don’t be afraid to leave a comment. In the meantime, I have to wonder at the idea that this is testable at all. As the Phys.org article notes,

… any conclusions resulting from such work would be limited…
