OF COURSE - This Blog is about Waste Plastic Technology!
The Blog is also about ALTERNATIVE ENERGY
Here we begin to explore reuse of plastics for energy as well as point to theories and realities with respect to alternative thinking about energy itself. We will explore Quantum Physics in more depth down the road but will begin with an introduction -
What is Quantum Physics?
Quantum physics is a branch of science that deals with discrete, indivisible units of energy called quanta as described by the Quantum Theory. There are five main ideas represented in Quantum Theory:
Energy is not continuous, but comes in small but discrete units.
The elementary particles behave both like particles and like waves.
The movement of these particles is inherently random.
It is physically impossible to know both the position and the momentum of a particle at the same time. The more precisely one is known, the less precise the measurement of the other is.
The atomic world is nothing like the world we live in.
While at a glance this may seem like just another phantom theory, it contains numerous clues as to the fundamental nature of the universe and is more important than even relativity in the grand scheme of things (if any one thing at that level could be said to be more important then anything else). Furthermore, it describes the nature of the universe as being much different then the world we see. As Niels Bohr said, "Anyone who is not shocked by quantum theory has not understood it. Niels Bohr, who worked in Copenhagen when he presented what is now known as the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum theory, the particle is what you measure it to be. When it looks like a particle, it is a particle. When it looks like a wave, it is a wave. Furthermore, it is meaningless to ascribe any properties or even existence to anything that has not been measured. Bohr is basically saying that nothing is real unless it is observed.

A lot more to come – BREAK THROUGH POWER by Jeanne Manning & Joel Garbon expresses Quantum Physics (the Quantum-Leap) where new energy inventions can and are transforming our world. Magnets are not to be discounted. It is our world and alternatives all need to be part of today's discussion regarding how our planet will evolve within it's current transition of traditional energy values. Stay tuned. Petroleum is with us and plastics too. There are solutions to landfill plastics. There are solutions to use petroleum wisely. Read on.
