Not as weird as you might think. Kafka and quantum theory.

I am fascinated by the world of quantum physics and I love a good science fiction story so when my friend sent this article to me today I was thrilled to find out that, yeah, reality ain’t nothing until we observe/measure it.

The article looks at an experiment that seems to confirm some of the more unselling aspects of the universe.

From Deep Stuff’s since news: “The bizarre nature of reality as laid out by quantum theory has survived another test, with scientists performing a famous experiment and proving that reality does not exist until it is measured.”

After reading the article I thought about how humans seem to have known this and have expressed it in art and literature for a long time. In fact, perhaps art is a human undertaking that acknowledges this fact in subtle and not so subtle ways.


Sample page from online illustrated short story.

I illustrated a favorite Franz Kafka short story a few years back. It’s called, A Common Experience Resulting in A Common Confusion. Have a look. It’ll only take a minute to read.
