- Kaku states a calculable possibility of waking up on mars.
- Quantum physics theory shows the uncertainty of waking up on mars.
- The wait for it will be longer than a lifetime of the universe.
“Quantum theory is based on what is known as Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle, allowing for a small probability that we can exist even on distant places like Mars,” says theoretical physicist Michio Kaku.
According to the above-mentioned theory, there is a possibility that our quantum wave will cross space-time and land on Mars.
Is it possible?
According to Kaku, in reality, we might have to wait for a lifetime longer than the universe to wake up on Mars. This might seem impossible, but there is still a slight chance of this just not being a theory.
In other words, the unlikely odds that you will wake up on Mars tomorrow are rare. Even if you did, there would be dreadful new challenges brought on by the cold and the absence of a breathable habitat.
However, as Kaku points out, unlikely does not necessarily imply impossible. That’s why understanding the worlds that exist, have existed for a very long time, or may continue to exist in the future depends so heavily on quantum physics and its attempt to explain the origins of the universe down to the level of quantum uncertainty.
