Inspirations: Fred Alan Wolf on Time Travel (2012)
Physicist Fred Alan Wolf, popularly known as Dr. Quantum, takes us on a deep and remarkable dive to the quantum level, where we are seriously challenged to rethink our notions of mind, time, space and matter. Are the past, present and future all mixed together? What is the significance of light in our perception of reality? How is it that the observer affects the observed?
Dr. Quantum is nothing if not lively. He blends his explanation of the “bubbles of possibility” with references to the Marx Brothers, the ancient Taoist philosopher Chuang Tzu, Star Trek, and his interpretation of the moment in Genesis when God says, “Let there be light.”
Hang in there with Dr. Quantum and Lisa Garr for this amazing conversation about some very complex issues. Reconciling quantum theory with our perceptions of reality is sure to challenge our understanding of the world, and we can only be the better for it.
