7.8 seconds for a particle to move in and out of form
« on: May 30, 2017, 07:49:12 PM »
Hi! In watching an interview on Gaia regarding the Book Discussion "Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself", Joe speaks of quantum particles moving in and out of existence every 7.8 seconds.

I would like to find a additional resources that speak to this and verify it. Can anyone point me in the perfect direction?

Thank you!

I can't find that anywhere either. It also seems an incredibly long time, unless he means that a whole object will have had all it's particles replaced in 7 secs. Like the human body has all new cells every two years.

Personally I think particles  are only there as long as you are observing them. When your not, they're gone.

I think the universe only has a finite number of physical particles and that they fly in and out, as and when they are needed. Even between alternative universes.
