Is the double-slit experiment and its bizarre observable effects the reason cerns large hadron collider exists? Do, they collide particles similar to what was used in the double-slit exp. And taking the tests to the extremes of what is possible. It just seems the 2 would be directly related, but I have not seen anyone mention this in these comments. Are we on the brink of inventing time travel just by being aware of this quantum phenomenon, or are our brains cramping for no purpose at all?
