    I don't think there's a definition of the word "intelligence" that everyone would agree to. At least, I've not seen one.

    Yes, I believe this is the case. The photon approaches the two slits. It's wavelike properties interact with the two slits in such a way that the path it takes after the slits depends on a...

    When you get to near an Avogadro’s number of particles the coherence length will be impossibly small. Now, if you can make a Bose Einstein condensate large enough it might get interesting.

    The lowest electron state in an atom has zero orbital angular momentum. So, the probability distribution function actually peaks at the position of the nucleus. If I recall correctly this results in...
