Thanks for watching! If your brain feels broken, you're not alone, trust me. *IMPORTANT CORRECTION* We'll get to this in the next Footnotes, but you don't actually need to "go sub-atomic" to experience quantum effects, at least in theory, and Ant-Man wouldn't even be able to get that small, considering that no matter how close his atoms get together, he still has atoms. I apologize for furthering the common misconception that "going quantum" is simply a matter of how big you are. -- KH

Hans Brackhaus I think its only part truth. Like looking at a picture and only being able to see a few colors. I know there is a picture but i have no idea what it looks like.

I also think that antmans ability to think at a small size would also change. The neurons are no longer far apart they are much closer now you need to change the electrical charge jump from neuron to neuron.

I dont know if we know enough about the quantum world to say with out a doubt that particles pop in and out of existence. Because something can pop in and out of our view does that make it reality?. We have ways to detect things without vision, how do we know if the things we detect is telling us the whole truth of that object?. Im just curious about your input.

U say that when he goes subatomic he can travel to where an wenever however he wanted, but if he goes subatomic hed literally become a blackhole

Not sure that a 3D object can suddenly interact with the 4th D simply by conesing it's mass *indefinitely??* just because ant man get to the size of quantum... Things, doesn't mean he shares any properties with them. Additionally, once he became small enough, he'd sink through molecules and atoms in to the center of the earth due to his mass not changing. Ant man makes NO GODDAMNED SENSE!

personally, Im creating my own fictional universe... and one of my character is a hero with the Power of shrinking... he has the hability to shrink voluntary every things made of matter that he touches and can also shrink his own body (also he can make all the shrunk things regrow to their initial size)... to do this, he in fact extracts a part of the mass energy of the things he wanna shrink and RECYCLE this mass energy to use it like a kind of force to CONTRACT the space between the nucleons and the cloud of electrons of all the atoms of the thing that is shrunk... LIKE THIS he reuses a part of the mass energy contained into the atoms like a kind of sort of virtual spring that just permits to contract the three dimensional space between nucleons and cloud of electrons in each atoms... in this way, when he shrink a thing, a part of the mass of the thing is used (making the thing less massive) in the form of another energy for simply MAINTAIN a shrunk volume for the thing (because the natural force of electromagnetism and the natural way the atoms are are fighting against this recycled energy to maintain the NORMAL distance between the nucleons and the electrons) AND SOOO when he shrink something, the mass and the volume are EQUALLY and IN THE SAME PROPORTIONS REDUCED, making the shrunk things look like they have the same density and the same volumic mass... when he makes a shrunk thing regrow its initial volume, he simply progressively retransforms the "spring energy" into the original mass energy of the thing, so like this it progressively regrow to its initial volume AND get back the mass it has "lost"

I love how you actually talk about the mass problem. when i was a young kid watching "honey i shrunk the kids", i was thinking that same thing, and it made me kinda angry that no one else noticed or even understood what i was point out and complaining about...even at the end of the movie where they had "massive food" just thinking of them eating that made me cringe at what that would be doing to their bodies in real life...as a 3 or 4 year old it really bugged me b/c of how much it didnt make any real sense and i was the only one who noticed... i watched it when it came out on VHS 3 or 4 years after it came out...the fam all thought i was too weird, that i couldnt just enjoy the movie talking about things that didnt make any sense to them, like how the only way it would really work was to lessen the number of atoms in their bodies, which wasnt what he said was happening, that it was the space within the atoms between the electrons and the nucleus that was shrinking, which would leave the mass the same, but not the volume, which would make everything they did in that movie not even remotely possible, and would have killed that poor ant, among other things... it was even worse when i saw the sequel, "honey i blew up the baby"...just seeing it in my head that every time it would take a steep, the realness of it would make the baby float, thinking back its like that guy in "john carter of mars", but different...cause, well, physics...

so your description of the effects of quantum mechanics is a kin to recoded instruments which are then reproduced through a speaker cone:- 19,980 oscillations at various amplitudes per vibrational piece of the instrument (the string-its effect to air density, the mechanical resonance of the 'body' of the instrument-its effects folded back to the string oscillation-its effects to air density), which would be something like 19,980 times 3, per string, compounded per cycle of each frequency. Summed for each string (Node is the technical term), this is then multiplied for each oscillating piece of any other instruments involved. But to keep it simpler, go with one note/'string'/Node of a violin. All those values of oscillation, all those 'possibilities' of frequency, per oscillation, over time, are then passed through the most 'plausible' into a single oscillation to a speaker which gives us the reproduction of the recording....Glad i got that off my chest.

I’ve had his idea in my head for a while now. If Antman wanted to, could he shrink down to be so dense that he becomes a black hole? Maby that’s the real reason he wasn’t in Infinaty war. I mean, yes, he would kill himself, but he would probably take thanks down along with him. Can someone look into this?

Or maybe Quantum exists to govern the laws of physics? Kind of like a script that works in the background of a Game to make sure the Game follows the rules the developer intended. A kind of script that we could edit within a field to write our own physics, like 2mph is now the speed of light. And then traveling the entire universe in an instant by taking a step, like a Warp bubble.
