It’s only number 3 on this list, whereas second hand smoke is covered by number 1.
The quantum stuff is interesting though. Take the idea that a particle can exist in two states simultaneously and will collapse into one state or the other when observed. How do they know?
The particle is in both A and B states at once. You look at it and it is in the B state. What happens when you look away? Does it stay in the B state or does it go back to the unobserved ‘both states at once’?
If you look at it again and it is now in the ‘A’ state, then you know the answer. But if it is in the ‘B’ state still, you don’t.
Does that mean that the particle remains permanently B after the first observation, or does it mean that the particle is always A/B when not observed and always B when observed? How can you know what something is doing when not observed?
If I am here in my little room here in the early hours, am I smoking or not? You cannot know unless you can see me. I have no webcam so you can’t see me, but if I did have one, you would see me smoking or not smoking. Which state is true?
It depends on when you look.
All smokers are quantum smokers. We are, at any one time, either smoking or not smoking. There is no graduated scale, it is a fully quantum yes/no thing.
So when the antis aren’t looking, we are both smoking and not smoking simultaneously. Only when they see us do we assume one state or the other.
Unlike those subatomic particles, we get to choose what they see. We, the experiment, can decide the result. Science would be horrified, pseudoscience is too dim to understand the difference.
It’s just a drunken ramble now but I have a feeling it could prove useful in the near future,,,
