Beam me up, Scotty!

As Masons, we continue to desire more Light.

Quantum physicists have figured out a way to give us a double dose, according to the journal Physical Review Letters (vol 96, 060504).

Using laser beams, scientists have created a teleportation machine that generates two near-identical copies of the original.

Why only near-identical? Because Quantum Mechanics dictates that just measuring the position of a particle disturbs it and so limits the accuracy to which it can be reliably replicated — a concept known as the uncertainty principle. This makes producing an exact clone of the beam impossible.

  1. Blah blah blah, please ask any so-called physicist to define gravity.

    They can't do it. They don't have a clue as to what gravity is.

    Might as well be Josh.
