Quantum Superposition and Reality: Realities Are Separate But Linked. Quantum physics teaches us that the realiyy we experience is but one wave out of a enormous number of wave possibilities. The wave possibilities is the quantum superposition which contains all the possibilities.

Quantum physics informs us that a system exists in superposition — that is, in all possible states — until we observe that it is only in one specific state. According to a 2002 poll of …

"Decoherence represents an extremely fast process for macroscopic objects, since these are interacting with many microscopic objects, with an enormous number of degrees of freedom, in their natural environment. The process explains why we tend not to observe quantum behaviour in everyday macroscopic objects. It also explains why we do see classical fields emerge from the properties of the interaction between matter and radiation for large amounts of matter."

Physicists Smash Record For Wave-Particle Duality Researchers have observed quantum superposition in molecules containing around 5000 protons, 5000 neutrons and 5000 electrons One of the central concepts of quantum mechanics is wave-particle duality—that all objects can be thought of as either a wave or as a particle.

New half-meter record for quantum superposition at macroscopic level

'A proposal for putting a living bacterium into a superposition of quantum states has been unveiled by physicists in the US and China. If successful, the experiment would be the first realization – albeit microscopic – of Schrödinger's famous thought experiment involving a cat in a box that is simultaneously alive and dead until an observer makes a measurement by peering into the box. As well as improving our understanding of the foundations of quantum mechanics, the researchers say
