If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

The Q-RAY Process ?

There is a recent paper

Seth Lloyd

in which there are interesting handwaving, or quantum_ranging process, or Q-RAYS ?

Take the Quantum Light that Seth propose's, now using an entangled photon, one can send it into a box containing shoedingers cat. Then, according to Seth's paper, one can take a "quantum_image" of the cat, thereby confirming its existence, either alive or dead, without the cat or detector actually knowing it is being imaged!!

I believe the incoming photon ,as far as the device inside box is concerned, will automatically re-set the entangled state, on it's way back outwards from the inside of box, if retuning in the direction from whence it came.

Some time ago I made inroads to the "Quantum Efficiancy Wave" principle, this differs from the linked paper, by fact the entangled photon MUST continue in a straight "one-way" direction, as like the process of medical X-RAY machines, thus is born the "Q-Wave" machine!

The H.U.P gets violated by fact the Q-Rays confirms not only existence, but non-existence, which make location and momentum 100% factual?

So the question arises thus:Can a shroedinger cat "inside-box" detector, be fooled (given a false location identity by Seth's quantum_ranging devise) into thinking its location is outside the box?..thereby never putting the cat at risk of death by the toxic substance?

A two-way photon is one that hits something and rebounds "backwards" thereby returning in the direction it originates from. A one-way photon would have to have an ancillary detection, or terminal device specifically placed in the direction it is heading?
