200°# Bungie's Quantum Mechanics Equation is Causing A Stir

Calling all mathematicians and/or nerds out there, the public needs your help. Above is a Quantum Mechanic equation, namely Schrodinger's Equation. fierce Scuba of Loot Ninja know this because he took a year of Advanced Physical Chemistry in Graduate school. Bungie posted this equation recently on a post and people are speculating over what it means.

Quantum Mechanics is math with no numbers so to speak. Symbols and an expressions all have values, but are computed to either make the function reappear, equal to zero, or one.

So what is the point? This could be a major plot spoiler.

The sole fact these guys want to incorporate quantum mechanics into Halo 3 scares him to death.

So apparantly Schrodinger did some thought experiments with a cat (not a real cat). If the cat is put into a box in isolation (decoherence) and fed poison, the cat’s position on quantum space can only be said to be combination of possible rest states (eigenstates), because to find out it’s exact state would require the observer to interfere with the experiment. So in layman’s terms, the cat is somewhere between alive and dead, or both.

Now how does this fit into Halo? Well, one thought that has been proposed would be surrounding Master Chief. He’s been in isolation inside his MJOLNIR Mark V armor suit for the extent we’ve seen him throughout the games. Because he’s been in isolation, we don’t know what sort of state he’s in.

Another theory involves Cortana. Since she could be imprisoned by the Gravemind, we don’t know what her state is, whether with or against Master Chief.

These are just some thoughts, I could be way off base.

4Disagree0......it's 42

1Disagree1Another theory raised by a reader/friend after reading about the Dirac equations and Klein-Gordon equation which are loosely based on Schrödinger’s equation, is its the equation for a super-weapon. It may be part of the equation that show how the Halo’s work, and how they are able to take protons and photons and use them to destroy planets.

This comes from someone studying for a PhD in Physics.

2Disagree0Pi x Inifinity = Halo 3... I don't know.

I'll just go with 42 as the answer. ^_^ Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Glaxay is such a good book btw.
