There is a new branch of QM waiting to be discovered named "Physicality"

How do I show a single state trying to cross a potential well has less frequency oscillation instead of more?

Holographic Mass, frequency oscillation, and when forces intervene are all major suspects in this investigation.

Holographic Mass: quantum wave mass in the form of information

Mass in usual potential well equations is not physical mass. That is why I bring up holographic particles. They are unobserved and might be the missing piece.

<a|a> =1

post operations wavefunction

a*c0 <0|0>

c0 = 1, c1 = 0

<0|0>=1

the single state can be fed into potential well

That single state is the same as an observed particle, decoherence. And with it comes the inability to tunnel. Does it naturally have a frequency of ground state? You need energy to tunnel so without frequency oscillation from a wave …it isn’t going to go anywhere.

The kinetic energy is open to forces (because it is a single state - observed) and the mass is physical, so the potential well acts on it. Kinetic energy is constant if it was a quantum wave. Unobserved quantum waves are immune to forces.

Is this frequency oscillation I’m asking about the same thing as “Quantum Harmonic Oscillation”? And that zero point vibration, uncertainty, isn’t enough to allow a classical particle (normalized single state) to tunnel?

Symmetry is related to forces, so is there a connection to a difference between coherence and decoherence?

Non-zero probability is a wave only activity. A particle in duality is not going to tunnel because the quantum field only has the ability to make it ageless at that point.

In more detail, the calculations show that if atoms are treated as classical particles, that is, as simple points in space, many distortions of the structure tend to lower the energy of the system.

My goal is an equation that says observed particles do not tunnel. No, you only assume a physical particle has tunneled. Observing a particle after it has ended its journey is not causing it to decohere in flight. It wasn’t physical in flight. Nature didn’t consider it observation.

If

• <a|a> =1,
• <0|0>=1, and
• c0 = 1,
then you obviously need more cowbell.

Do we have proof decohered condenced wave packets are still waves?

I want the math of a decohered “wave” attempting to tunnel. You get it by letting the wave functions cancel out leaving you with a single state. The holographic mass of a wave (not a particle in duality) …is not physical. It doesn’t have to answer to forces like a particle in duality.

Does a matter wave travel like a corkscrew?

"I want the math of a decohered “wave” attempting to tunnel."
I was going to buy you one last Christmas, but the wave functions had canceled out and there was only a single state that the guy ahead of me bought just before I got there. If only it had duality, I would have snapped up the other one. Maybe next year.

Oh yay. You’ve made YET ANOTHER great discovery that moron Einstein missed. You’re so smart and I wish I was you. Seriously, can you give it a rest for a bit? The pretentiousness of all of this self aggrandizing make believe play time is a little much. I need at least a couple of weeks to recover between great discoveries that make your IQ a thousand times greater than Einstein’s.

Is there proof that a decohered wave is still a wave? I know I said “wave”, but I suspect it isn’t anymore at that point. The quantum field still has influence on the now physical particle. It doesn’t have the ability to perform quantum weirdness events.

Duality at all stages of a particles life is a misconception.

The answer seems to be that the wave function was never involved. If a particle is going to be physical, it will be so from start to finish.

A classical state.

or is duality a Density Matrix? (mixed states)

If a quantum wave needs to be physical from point A to B, any state change during the flight will initiate physicality automatically. The wave is now a particle. Observation is not needed for the swap.

The quantum field doesn’t allow waves to age. The life of a wave is known before starting. The particle is going to be either a wave or particle the entire flight. Duality is dead.

A measurement after the double slit shows the entire life of that particle is known via state …until the final panel.

I think this holds the math to send an observed particle into a potential well equation

How does the observed version of the double slit experiment get by without supported math?

I’m considering the wave function isn’t being used for observed particles …because the particle might not be a wave at that point.

It’s a classical trajectory with wobble from uncertainty. It’s not a wave, but gets wobble from the quantum field influencing it.

Send a classical particle into a three dimensional potential well. 0 Probability of it tunneling.

https://farside.ph.utexas.edu/teaching/315/Waveshtml/node95.html

Ψ = 0 outside of the well

I should probably add that the quantum field doesn’t use time from spacetime. Unobserved quantum waves do not age. This is how it knows if a state was triggered in the particles path before launching it.

A measurement far after the double slit experiment shows the entire life/path(indirectly) of the particle is known via state. The final panel is the exception because the wave will collapse, what matters is what a wave/particle is while in flight.

It’s either a wave OR a physical particle(local). It’s possible for a wave to make it from point A to B without being measured before the final screen. That’s why it shows fringes. You don’t get quantum weirdness (Superposition (not talking about superposition of states), Entanglement, Tunneling) events when it’s a particle. They don’t experience weirdness after decoherence. Only cohered waves are allowed weirdness events.

There is a clear difference of what a particle is with decoherence. The quantum field is responsible for uncertainty and still has influence on physical particles …making them wobble for fringe tests, in this case it isn’t fringe, you are looking at uncertainty. You don’t decohere a wave (with a detector) and then expect to find fringes afterwards.

Measurements done after the fact (hitting the final panel) have no barring on what the particle was in flight.

The quantum field doesn’t use time from spacetime. Unobserved quantum waves do not age. This is how the quantum field knows if a state was triggered in the particles life/path before launching it. This is the core of what measurement/observation is.

A particle/wave will be what it is throughout the flight. No Duality.

This is the gateway to the Unified Theory. Physical particles go with GR, Unobserved Quantum Waves go with the Quantum Field. Spacetime is separate from the Quantum Field. There is a quantum/classical boundary around the mass of a virus. Objects above this line are automatically decohered.

Unobserved Matter-Waves do not decay. Also, physical particles (observed) do not tunnel. The math involves a “retarded” Schrodinger equation solution with a damping factor that causes the state vector to not be constant. It is an observable, since it is a hermitian operator and its eigenvectors form a basis of the state space. Hooray for dissipative behavior! This behavior is what prevents an observed particle from tunneling. Unobserved quantum waves are immune to forces when trying to tunnel …physical particles are not. There are constants involved that are not touched by forces when the object is waves.

The delayed choice quantum eraser also shows the entire path of the particle is known before being launched.

Future observed matter-waves decohere before they start moving because their momentum direction triggers decoherence. (Decay of coherence) http://othes.univie.ac.at/30192/1/2013-07-28_0747803.pdf

Observation isn’t possible without time from spacetime https://arxiv.org/pdf/1305.3591.pdf

"Okay, perhaps you could define for me exactly what it means to decohere a particle?"
Measure it in a way that allows it to continue on its path to a final panel where the wave collapses
"But if the wave hasn't collapsed into a particle yet (using your terms) then how does it have a "path"?"
If a wave is going to decohere in its path ..it won't be a wave from the very beginning.
"So if a wave ever collapses into a particle then it was never a wave to begin with?"
That's what I said in the OP
"Can you explain what a quantum field is? Or more specifically, can you explain how the definition of a field doesn't completely contradict your statements like "The quantum field doesn't use time from spacetime" or "Unobserved quantum waves do not age"?"
The Quantum Field is the group of fields that run on fluctuations. Something is weird with time in the quantum field. It is connected to the trigger of something gaining a physical state. The age part is said because coherent matter-waves do not decay ..it's only after they decohere and become physical do they age.
"The Schrodinger equation describes how wave functions "age". It applies even before decoherence."
Not the same type of "age". Everything about waves is artificial. I think they are holograms/virtual, they hold quantum information. If an unobserved matter wave can tunnel ..so can its mass.
"Where does the dissipative behavior come from?"
The behavior is built into the "retarded" function https://arxiv.org/pdf/quant-ph/0206117.pdf

“If quantum waves are immune to forces, then why do electron orbitals in atoms–which are most definitely waves–exist?”

They don’t have a point A to B …they don’t have a starting point
They are unreal/virtual/holographic waves
oh any by the way, Dark Matter is quantum waves that can never be decohered.

I don't agree with "A measurement far after the double slit experiment shows the entire life/path of the particle is known via state."
The path is known indirectly. It's a natural process, there isn't anything to "know" but a state change will do the swap preemptively.
I also read in the op that time does not influence quantum states until observation and stated as observation being the catalyst of collapse?
no, decoherence isn't a collapse. Decoherence is a measurement that leads to a physical state. The final panel of a experiment is wave collapse ..and it doesn't influence the granting of physical states.
What do you know about Quantum Gravity
Gravity isn't a force, it's the bending of spacetime. There is a required amount of mass to interact with it.
The paper you linked doesn't mention tunneling, so where do you get that it describes particles that don't tunnel?
I've been searching for a way to send a decohered wave into a potential well ..this is the only formula that offers a way to do it. Retarded has damping and a state reduction. I needed less frequency oscillation for decoherent waves. And the extra bonus of Unobserved quantum waves being immune to forces (the constants) ..physical particles are not.

Nothing is physical without spacetime.
Is time the only dimension unobserved quantum waves are missing? …or is it all of them? Does spacetime contain all four?
Is being granted time the same as being granted a physical state?

Is it possible the big bang happened in an already existing quantum field? The big bang would just be spacetime enlarging handing out time and physical states to quantum waves as it grew. The plasma was already here as quantum waves.

The quantum field doesn’t use time from spacetime. Unobserved quantum waves do not age. The quantum field isn’t limited to time’s frame rate and therefore has all time. This is how the quantum field knows if a state will be triggered in the particles life/path before launching it. This is the core of what measurement/observation is.

The quantum field doesn’t use the full dimension of time from spacetime. Unobserved quantum waves do not age/decay. Their phase velocity doesn’t seem to be influenced by it either. The quantum field isn’t limited to spacetime’s frame rate and therefore has all time (in regard to physical state grants). This is how the quantum field knows if a state will be triggered in the particles life/path before launching it. This is the core of what measurement/observation is.

A particle/wave will be what it is throughout the flight. No midair swaps. No Duality.
