John Collier Not surprising. James Leggett's work on the theory of weak measurements more or less implies this. I wrote in 1997 in a review of a book on hte direction of time: The chapters by physicists James Leggett and Phil Stamp deal with the distinction between...See More


Leonardo Varesi Yes, but do you think that in quantum gravity theories applied for example to blacks holes, this fact would be a serious problem to be reassessed?Isn't it?

While there is a rigorously proven relationship about uncertainties intrinsic to any quantum system, often referred to as "Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle," Heisenberg originally formulated his ideas in terms of a relationship between the precision of a measurement and the disturbance it must create. Although this latter relationship is not rigorously proven, it is commonly believed (and taught) as an aspect of the broader uncertainty principle. Here, we experimentally observe a violation of Heisenberg's "measurementdisturbance relationship", using weak measurements to characterize a quantum system before and after it interacts with a measurement apparatus. Our experiment implements a 2010 proposal of Lund and Wiseman to confirm a revised measurementdisturbance relationship derived by Ozawa in 2003. Its results have broad implications for the foundations of quantum mechanics and for practical issues in quantum mechanics.

It is argued that immense physical resources  for nonlocal communication, espionage, and exponentiallyfast computation  are hidden from us by quantum noise, and that this noise is not fundamental but merely a property of an equilibrium state in which the universe happens to be at the present time. It is suggested that 'nonquantum' or nonequilibrium matter might exist today in the form of relic particles from the early universe. We describe how such matter could be detected and put to practical use. Nonequilibrium matter could be used to send instantaneous signals, to violate the uncertainty principle, to distinguish nonorthogonal quantum states without disturbing them, to eavesdrop on quantum key distribution, and to outpace quantum computation (solving NPcomplete problems in polynomial time).
