The Quantum Jewel


I don't quite understand all this, but it makes me excited anyway. It also curious that Buddhism, which has described reality well enough that it's got scientists interested in it, mentions jewels a lot. Co-incidence I'm sure, but I think it's a kind of neat co-incidence.

"Locality is the notion that particles can interact only from adjoining positions in space and time. And unitarity holds that the probabilities of all possible outcomes of a quantum mechanical interaction must add up to one. The concepts are the central pillars of quantum field theory in its original form, but in certain situations involving gravity, both break down, suggesting neither is a fundamental aspect of nature."
