ENTRY DESCRIPTION

The observer can hold matter in a fixed state, in effect If you could observe an atomic bombs atoms every million trillionth of a second the bomb could not explode.

Experiments have been done holding positively charged beryllium ions, in a fixed position using a magnetic field. Then a radio frequency field is applied that would boost the atoms from a lower to a higher energy state. However, when the atoms were checked every four milliseconds with a laser, the atoms never make it to a higher energy state, despite the force driving them towards it. Measuring the atoms kept them at the lower energy state. Passing high voltage through a small spherical cage that sits inside a reactor the negatively charged cage traps hydrogen ions inside were they confine and fuse in a hot “blob” of plasma creating nuclear fusion. MY EXPERIMENT Measuring the hydrogen ions inside the sphere “observing” them with a laser every million trillionth of a second would “freeze” the hydrogen ions making them unable to fuse. Then dialing back to fewer laser pulses per second (Like dimming a flashlight) would slowly allow them to fuse holding the atoms in a superposition of fusing and not fusing at the same time. This same principle can be applied to nuclear fission measuring a uranium atom every four milliseconds after it has been struck by a neutron then slowing down the laser measurement pulses to "freeze" the uranium at different levels of decay in superposition of decay and non-decay. By slowing down the laser pulses then speeding the laser back up to a million trillion pulses a second the atom would essentially rebuild itself reversing the decay. This would show that protons and lead nuclei smashing apart into quantum size “big bangs” inside the LHC if measured at the correct moment could freeze a "quantum big bang" and hold it in superposition even reversing the “mini bang” from a “quantum bang” back to being particles again.
