Do you have a reference to MACRO hidden variables? This is a concept that I have not heard of.Spin_Network said:

QM deals with the statistical possibilities of particles taking a particular path from A to B, and how the possibilities can be calculated. It is possible that the probability of any particle deviating from a straight, direct path from A to B is suppressed by by destructive interference in the waveforms of non-straight paths. My understanding of this is very rudimentary and I might be quite misinformed, but are you asking if we can assign a probablility function to the position and velocity of macroscopic bodies?

turbo-1 this post is the result of a late night get together with some friends and is the result of someone (my brother-in-law) contemplating Dark Energy/Dark matter, as the:scaled up macro product of a Quantum Mechanical process?

I'm going to be 'drying-out' today after some excess wine supping, so I am on a damage limitation recon exercise at mo :yuck:

Enjoy the headache. With respect to the OP, the answer is very likely no.

Would you mind being a little more careful with what you post please?Spin_Network said:turbo-1 this post is the result of a late night get together with some friends and is the result of someone (my brother-in-law) contemplating Dark Energy/Dark matter, as the:scaled up macro product of a Quantum Mechanical process?

I'm sure random word association could be great fun, especially over a glass or three of good wine.

However, if I could ask you to take notes, then in the cold light of morning, check what it is you

Thank you
