How to walk through a door

How to Walk Through a Door

I had a brainstorm the other day on how we might someday be able to walk through a door. And I don't mean from a metaphysical standpoint, I mean really physically walk through the door. If you think about it, there really should be a way to make it happen. After all, our bodies and the door are almost 100% empty space. I would argue that Programmed Reality says it is completely empty space, but that topic will have to be for another post.

An electron, in Newtonian mechanics, can be stuck on one side of an impenetrable barrier. In QM, however, its wave function can be partly on one side of a barrier and partly on the other side at the same time, which allows for the possibility of “tunneling,” a common effect in semiconductors. In fact, were it not for the wave function nature of QM, transistors, and therefore cell phones, computers, satellites, and all other sorts of modern technologies would not even exist!

Interestingly, this theory does not only apply to subatomic particles, but also to macroscopic objects like me, you, and Donald Trump’s hair. Since our bodies are composed of particles, each of which are just wave functions, your body is simply the superposition of these zillions of wave functions, thereby creating its own “macroscopic” wave function. Theoretically, for this reason, you have a finite probability of passing through a wooden door, much like the electron tunneling effect. But, don’t try it. Because, when you sum up all of your constituent particles’ wave functions, there is a mathematical tendency for the probabilities of large-scale anomalous quantum effects to be extremely small. It is analogous to flipping pennies. The odds that a single penny comes up heads (electron passes through the barrier) is 50-50, but the odds that 1000 pennies all come up heads (you pass through the door) is 2^^1000 (equivalent to a 1 followed by 301 zeros, an impossible to imagine large number) to 1. And you have a helluva lot more than 1000 subatomic particles in your body.

But what if those particles in our bodies and/or the door were made to be coherent? That is, in our penny analogy, all pennies behave the same behavior. Impossible? Not so fast, Einstein. LASERs are a great example of coherence, where all photons are of the same frequency and are in phase. Aren't particles of matter just a different form of particle from the photons and could they be organized to be coherent as well?

Turns out that is exactly the case and it is known as Macroscopic Quantum Tunneling. U of Illinois researchers have demonstrated such an effect with electrons (real matter) in a nanowire. Superconductors, superfluidity, Bose–Einstein condensates are examples of properties that seem to defy conventional physics by having their constituents occupy coherent states. Macroscopic Quantum Coherence is a predicted property, yet to be observed in the laboratory, but probably inevitable, whereby all atoms in the piece of matter observing that property are in-phase and are described by a single quantum wavefunction. Well, that wavefunction allows for the possibility of matter being anywhere, or "tunneling" through a thin enough membrane of material. Let's say that, not unlike a laser, we could get all of the atoms in our bodies to be coherent. Might it not be possible to "tunnel" through a thin membrane of coherent material?

Effectively, we would have walked through a door!

Yes, I know that all of the different atoms in our bodies might not be made to be coherent with each other. Then again, think about radio waves of different frequencies. In general, they can't be in phase with each other, except at one particular point. Fourier analysis of a waveform with a discontinuity, like a step function or a delta function, has, at the point of the discontinuity, all frequencies in phase. Could there ultimately be a way to accomplish that with the mere several dozen atomic frequencies present in our bodies (And who cares if that stray bit of Uranium in your spleen is left behind on the other side of the door. Would you really miss it?) So maybe the trick is to pulse the coherence into your body just as you walk through the door.

Then there is the problem of how to get each planar sliver of your body to have the same tunneling capability sequentially. Like, so you don't end up with a door stuck in your chest, all Jeff Goldblum-like. Seems to me that maybe it's just a matter of applying continuous pulses of coherence into your body as you walk through the door. For each planar sliver, one of the pulses will eventually make you progress to the next sliver. Just hope the machine doesn't break down midway through.

So, there you have it. One, ultra high frequency multi-atomic coherence pulser. And you're walking through walls.

How about just turning the knob? :lol:

Sorry, I could not resist a set-up like that! ;)


Interesting post though. I seriously enjoyed reading it. Bonus points for referencing "The Fly."

well.. door knobs are for skeptics
believers rather stump thru thinks and theorize about impossibilities

I don't think it such an "impossibility" in that "we've" been experimenting with the idea of a solid matter transporter for several years now and the idea of walking through a solid is pretty much the same physics; agitate the molecules so everyone is one the appropriate frequency and you would have the effect of solid passing through solid. BUT this is something that's a good 80+ years away if it can happen that soon. Dr. Michio Kaku has presented theoretical insights to this very concept on the Science Channel in recent months.

I wish I could take a class with him, it would have to be awesome.

Winston only cares that Stubblebine is a 911 Truther. See, as long as you are in the military and saying what he wants to hear he is clearly a unquestionable expert. But now that's kind of off topic.

Yes, Stubblebine thought he could walk through walls with his mind. Just to make, sure this is on topic. :)

This reminds me of the story about Aikido master Tohei. A student was sitting at a table staring at a pen or some such small object.

Tohei asked what he was doing and the student replied that he was trying to move it with his Ki, and asked if Tohei could do it.

Tohei replied "certainly", reached out, picked the pen up and moved it to the other side of the table...

(Very cool idea, though. Quantum tunneling is interesting).

Yeah, but once it's open, how to do you walk through it? It's quite a decision really...

Do you walk up on your tip-toes like a woman wearing high heels and jut your hips out to side sensuously with each step? Or do you slowly swagger on through like a cowboy who's sore from riding a big, fat horse for several days straight? Or you and another person could walk through the door simultaneously if you can both squeeze through... Then, of course, walking through the door backwards might be interesting, especially if what's on the back of your t-shirt is more interesting than what's on the front.

But anyway, I'm glad to see an article about real physics on this forum and not just New Age articles in which the word "quantum" is randomly mentioned.

First, you jump at the door, and then get all phazy. Then you resolidify once you clear the door.

What people forget when they consider QM is that their is a wave function involved. The larger the object the shorter the wave function. An electron is small and its wave is long relative to an atom or a person. A person's wave function is so short that QM does not allow for the effects seen with electrons. People make all sorts of wacko claims based on not understanding this issue such as rocks jumping or tables moving or whatever.

I realize that you're making a short post and that these topics require lengthy explanations, so perhaps you've just oversimplified.

I just want to make the point that electrons don't have waves, they are the particles that make up waves. A wave function has properties similar to a wave in that it can interfere with itself, but when it is in its superposition state it is not technically a wave. It's more of an indeterminate state of probability which encompasses the universe through entanglement.

An electron has a wavelength.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electron_diffraction
Electron diffraction refers to the wave nature of electrons.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compton_wavelength
The Compton wavelength is a quantum mechanical property of a particle. It was introduced by Arthur Compton in his explanation of the scattering of photons by electrons (a process known as Compton scattering). The Compton wavelength of a particle is equivalent to the wavelength of a photon whose energy is the same as the rest-mass energy of the particle.
