The movie asks the Alice in Wonderland question, “How far down the rabbit hole do you want to go?” That is, how far down the rabbit hole of quantum physics do you want to go?
But to go down the rabbit hole means you are a participant, that you access what retired math professor and electronics engineer Ellis Peterson calls the “quantum ocean” in his article below.
And, in accessing the quantum ocean, preconceived notions about the world change.
Bilocate with Your Dog
Take 16th century Saint Philip Neri (above), for example, whose mission involved challenging stilted thinking. He might give a sermon with half of his beard cleanly shaved off, or ask a haughty and proud patron to walk his dog. When he saw the patron walking his dog on a leash, he cried,
“What are you doing?
I asked you to walk my dog!”
Then he instructed the patron to carry his dog as he walked along in the city. Saint Philip loved dogs…and so, when he entered the quantum ocean and bilocated, he also bilocated his dog with him.
