This High Voltage Fog Is Controlled by Pointing (BiFrost Nebulagraphy)

This video from Plasma Channel could mean we are a little bit closer to interactive holograms. If a fog is electrically grounded, and you are charged to a high voltage, some pretty remarkable things occur. Pointing at it draws lines, the fog forms vortexes, and even invisible ion bridges are formed. Ultimately, this phenomenon may […]

Brain Really Uses Quantum Effects, New Study Finds

This video is from Sabine Hossenfelder. When Roger Penrose originally came out with the idea that the human brain uses quantum effects in microtubules and that was the origin of consciousness, many thought the idea was a little crazy. According to a new study, it turns out that Penrose was actually right… about the microtubules […]

Do we create reality with our mind? A physicist’s reply.

This video is from Sabine Hossenfelder. Do we create reality with our minds? I got this question on twitter the other day and after rolling my eyes about it for some while, I decided it’s actually a good question. You might think the answer is obviously “no”. But it’s not that simple. Let me explain.
