Browsing through the youtube videos on how to learn better, I came across a video telling Feynman technique of learning. Hence started my research on ‘Richard Feynman’ and then ‘Quantum Physics’ and it further progressed to Ted Talks on Quantum physics.
While watching videos, I realised how this field is not even talked about, considering its ‘hype’ of difficulty created in a layman’s mind. Obviously we can talk about this and admire this magical field which according to some renowned people is the sole basis of our life and survival. Nature, they say, calculates a lot faster than our computers do. What is absurd for us, is too fine for small particles as electrons they say!! I found the talks totally mind-blowing. I was left amazed at the end of each one of those.
Being a CS student,a thing that got imprinted on my mind,
You need not be a 0 or a 1. You can be both 0 and 1 at the same time!!
How can I move left and move right at the same time? How can I sit and stand at the same slot of time? But these things they say, are totally fine for small particles as electrons! Amazing!
(Ability to exist in more than one state at a time is called ‘Superposition’ in quantum field.)
Most amazing thing is that almost every speaker agreed on the fact that field of quantum more than the complex brainstorming mathematical equations is about ‘intuition’. They talked about how any person with a good intuition, imaginative thinking can master in this field. Interesting! Isn’t it?
PS: Should continue with my videos :p
