A physicist at the University of Washington, Cramer caught the attention of the press in recent months by discussing his hopes of testing the idea of quantum retrocausality. Here we’re in the domain of what Cramer calls the Transactional Interpretation, in which the processes of quantum mechanics involve waves traveling both forward and backward in time. His experiment, which may begin as early as next month, will test whether photons can communicate in reverse time.
Hi, does anyone know any good links to retrocausality experiments and the results of those experiments. I'm interested to read up on the outcomes.Thanks.
It might succeed based upon the assumptions that are not questioned in entanglement experiments. Quantum theory predicts that certain super-positioned states assume their measured state at the time of measurement. I suspect the experiment will use quantum entanglement and wave function collapse. There are some really spooky things going on with that combination if we can not question the prediction that the states assume their value at the time of measurement.Keep in mind that there is no experimental evidence of wave-function collapse. It is just pretty solid theory that works very well to predict other things that can be measured.
