We also prefer titles that tell us about the post, not the poster

comment Isn't the uncertainty principle just non-fundamental limitations in our current technology that could be removed in a more advanced civilization?
@PO'Conbhui the forest is a wavefunction, in which it may or may not exist. The inhabitants of this psuedoforest are part of the wavefunction. The event of a tree falling is also part of the wavefunction.

comment Connection between entropy and energy
@Steffen: That's Maxwell's demon. And the "somehow" uses up energy.

comment What is the support for the suggestion that reality is a computer simulation?
@Amazed: If you want, you can edit this question so that it(the actual question being asked) is distinct from the other one. Then someone will reopen it (you can speed it up by asking in chat)

@MitchellPorter: I've mentioned that it does exist as a wavefunction, but I clarified it anyway.

comment Trains travelling at different speeds towards a station C
@Rushil: Yep, so they wanted you to interpret it that way. I hate it when questions are of the form "YOU tell me what I mean". :/

comment mechanism of annihilation
I would phrase it that annihilation is a part of the theory that envelops the electroweak force, I guess.

comment Trains travelling at different speeds towards a station C
By the way, this is a nice problem that I ask others sometimes. Half of them create a recursive relation and whatnot :)

@Aer: He meant that you should "accept" the answer via the green tick if you feel that it has answered your question (and you don't want to wait and see if there's a better one)

comment What could we observe if we see a 4 dimensional object and how could it change our physics view about our universe?
@RonMaimon: Aah, I see--makes sense to look at it as an extension from a point. I didn't know that about pairwise gluing, thanks :)
