If an object needs a decoherence event in its path to decohere, is it physical/real after the event? Is it still a group of wave packets, but only condensed now? Does it take around 50,000 bonded atoms to be physical particles?
Decoherence and Wave collapse are not the same thing. Wave collapse is when a particle hits a physical object and dead stops. Decoherence is a particle being measured in flight and allowed to continue moving on its path. Decoherence now means all quantum particles are not physical/real ..they are condensed wave packets that give the appearance they are physical/real after a decoherence event.
Coherence is the state a wave has to be in to perform quantum weirdness events. Coherence is orderly waves. Coherence is the world of the unobservable.
Did we overlook one crucial detail about duality? Duality is not a physical/wave object. It is never physical, it is either waves or condensed wave packets (decoherence).
Does the standard model tell us that each quantum field has its own coherent plane wave? And that decoherence causes the waves to combine into a single wave packet? Plane waves are infinite and fall out of coherence with future decoherence events.
Does decoherence cause wave packets before the decoherence event because quantum fields do not use distance or time (aka spacetime)? Are wave packets using spacetime and the reason they can not be in superposition, entangle, or tunnel?
Wave packets are not physical despite the connotations. They are not just for light, matter waves can be a wave packet also. Duality of a free particle is many plane waves to a single wave. It’s like going from digital to analog (the many layers of infinite coherent quantum fields are digital/virtual/holographic). Decoherence triggers many plane waves to compile into a single wave packet. The quantum fields don’t use space and time, they are filled with coherent plane waves. Compiled wave packets are restricted via spacetime.
Decoherence and Wave collapse are not the same thing. Wave collapse is when a particle hits a physical object and dead stops. Decoherence is a particle being measured in flight and allowed to continue moving on its path. Wave collapse does not influence the state of the wave in flight. The measurement problem is not a problem anymore.
Coherence is the state a wave has to be in to perform quantum weirdness events (superposition, entangle, and tunnel).
I think wave packets are a candidate to be a new state of matter. Wave packets don’t exist in a certain group number of patterns or molecules. It equates the mass energy necessary to bend spacetime. It is the quantum/classical boundary.
