    Quantum biology does what standard chemistry and physics can't

    Quantum biology does what standard chemistry and physics can't

    This is the show from Friday, September 21st, 2018

    SUMMARY:



    Real Science Radio host Bob Enyart discusses the growing field of quantum biology with Brian, an information systems guy with one of the world's major institutions who earned a double-major in both mechanical engineering and physics from Iowa State University. This engineer argues that some of the extraordinary abilities of biological organisms go beyond what seems possible from standard chemistry and physics. Quantum mechanics, astoundingly, enables the navigational abilities of the Arctic Tern to fly halfway around the globe and of Monarch butterflies to migrate from Canada to Mexico. The startling, often sub-atomic, quantum world of the two-slit experiment and of wave/particle duality, of quantum entanglement, superposition, coherence and quantum tunneling, has disrupted the already wildly complex field of biology. Evidence is mounting that the most bewildering abilities of living organisms come courtesy of the Designer using quantum effects to accomplish what otherwise would seem to be impossible!

    If you free Schroedinger's cat, there's a 50% chance that it will be dead

    If you don't free it, there's a 100% chance that it's only 50% dead

    I note Brian's background in the life sciences, just sayin'.
