Geocache Description:


I found this spot while hiking along this dike with my dog Pauli and my friends lamoracke and Joe and the JAE Family with the ultimate goal of reaching EraSeek's Entanglement cache. EraSeek described his experiences of entanglement while seeing another person on the other side of the river experiencing the same things, only as a mirror image to his own.

Collapse


We have all experienced another version of a different quantum mechanical phenomenon while geocaching as well. In the theory of wave mechanics, a particle isn't in a single place unless it is observed directly. Instead it seems to occupy all of the area defined by it's wave function -- smeared out over space and time.

Geocachers experience a similar phenomenon when approaching a cache. In many cases, as you approach a well hidden geocache, it seems to be everywhere. Perhaps hidden in one spot, then another. Eventually the cache is found and then the wave function is collapsed to a single point. You see where it is hidden and it's not in a nebulous "someplace around here."

Dogs are so cute
