The detectors don’t induce the phenomenon of wave function collapse; conscious observation does. Consciousness is like this giant roving spotlight, collapsing reality wherever it shines—and what isn’t observed remains probability. And it’s not just photons or electrons. It is everything. All matter…A testable, repeatable fault in reality.”
Ted Kosmatka – The Flicker Men
I am reading The Flicker Men, a book that could easily swallow you whole with its mind-bending sci-fi exploration of the implications of quantum physics. It starts with real science, with Feynman’s Double Slit Experiment that proves the duality of light. Light is both wave and particle. Actually, just one year ago, researchers were able to photograph the first picture of light as particle and wave at the same time. It’s a cool picture.
But then there is also the Observer Effect. The act of observing changes reality on the quantum level, including changing light from waves to particles in the Double Slit Experiment. The Flicker Men considers what that means in terms of understanding consciousness. It leads to our poor researchers being kidnapped, beaten, even killed because the implications of their research threaten our understanding of how the world works. I hope folks think about reading it – not just because the author makes the science pretty easy, but because it should provoke fascinating conversations. Continue reading →
If it’s true that girls only dress up for other girls, how much more so that fashion bloggers dress up for other fashion bloggers? And compliments FROM other fashion bloggers – aren’t they some of the highest praise you get?
I received a really cute dress that fits various SLINK Bodies (I’m wearing SLINK Hourglass today) with a note that I was receiving it because Kirsten Corelone loves my blog. I fangirled being fangirled and quickly slapped it on to take a look.
It’s perfect for my shopping adventures today and a great pick up if you’re looking for something to wear out this weekend. You can find it on MP in their store here. There’s some really cute stuff in this new to me shop.
Now, I’ve got to go check on my kitties and make sure Carson fed them while I was taking a couple of days to travel! (I’m sure he did, I’m he said he would….)Happy Thursday everyone!! <3

I’ve been a solitary creature for five years. It took adjustment, being alone all the time, finding reasons to stay here on my own. But now I’ve decided to stop being such a solitary creature and I find myself wondering am I even made for this new, more social and engaging side of me. Continue reading →
Having a social calendar is suddenly making my SL a busier place, and I’m loving it. Except for one thing. I’m TIRED. Cajsa and I were out this weekend and reminiscing on the so many parties we used to throw and attend, and how much time we used to spend together and she remarked “Yes, you never slept.” I guess that’s true. I was younger, or stupider (more stupid for the literati). Continue reading →
RC-Cluster completes my SL in a way that is sometimes too epic to put into words. How did she know I need to both blow dry my hair and perform while getting ready for my day? Clearly my day was going to be epic, starting out so well entertained. Continue reading →
Oh god is it time to wake up already? No, it can’t be. I’m so tired from yesterday. I cannot believe how busy I was in SL yesterday, I think I did all the things. Ok well some of the things. Continue reading →
One of my resolutions is simply to be more social in SL. What’s the point of being here if I’m a hermit. So I took my Sunday evening free time and first of all I stopped over at Pure Poison because the group chat about these new pumps in the Group Gift Gacha has been NONDAMSNTOP. I had to see what the fuss was about. Continue reading →
