Anomalies and Quantum Mechanics.
Many people had been exposed to the wonderful ideas of Quantum Mechanics:
the physics of the microworld.
Beyond a certain scale in that microworld things are far from the
"reality" that we perceive in the "classic" macro
world.
At that lower scale for example our two valued logic: that a given
statement can only have a true or false truth value does not apply anymore:
things can be true, or false and also "anything in between", the
truth value of things could be a "probability" value ranging from
0 to 1, "0" for certainly false, "1" for certainly true
but any real value between 0 and 1 as a probability of that truth value.
This lead to very "weird" occurrences as for example a particle
on a side of a "barrier" always will have a non zero probability of
being at the other side of the barrier; "tunneling" spontaneously
through it, the so called tunneling effect on Quantum Mechanics that have
multiple practical applications in semiconductors.
But what many people do not know is that quantum mechanical effects can
manifest at the macroscopic level: superfluity and superconducting are two
known quantum phenomenon at the macroscopic level.
For example you can have a superconducting ring where all electric current
flowing through that ring is moving in one direction AND also is moving in
the opposite direction simultaneously, that will be a
"contradiction" for a classically educated engineer and a cause
of cognitive dissonance.
This basic macroscopic quantum effect is used in the quantum computers
being manufactured by DWave systems today for example.
If a physical phenomena can be reproduced in laboratory conditions then it
is natural to consider that similar occurrences can happen in nature, or
even more: that it could exist phenomena that are directly or indirectly
the result of quantum effects at the macroscopic level, phenomena where our
classical two valued logic does not apply by being too narrow.
And obviously the phenomena that we have in mind are Anomalies.
If some Anomalies are plasma based lifeforms then their mastering of
quantum physics is at their very being and the exploitation of macroscopic
quantum effects by them will be just "natural". Superfluity and
superconducting will be just two known phenomena that we know that they can
use, but do we know all quantum macroscopic effects? Obviously no.
