I think this is Major League Bullshit.

http://www.extremetech.com/extreme/162289-light-stopped-completely-for-a-minute-inside-a-crystal-the-basis-of-quantum-memory

So they claimed they stopped light for 1 minute.

I understand when a photon hits a particle the particle absorbs the energy the photon was carrying.

Can light be really trapped without being slowed down? How?

really amazing,
one question, does light exist if nobody can see light?

if one could see light, does it means our eyes or anything that could perceive light are somehow interacting with it?

now light seems like something living,

does viewing light cause anything to those photons?
so, if i close my eyes and imagine light, does it means i could create light?

light is so special,

It depends on how you perceive the surrounding world, let's quote Albert Einstein:

Yes. Infrared light can not be seen by our naked eyes.

quantum physics doesn't exist at all. it is just another chimera invented to open unlimited credits.
it is like shrodinger's cat, just a sort of metaphysic theory to try to explain why events occurs when they occurs, where they occurs....

in fact, only the real physics exists, from the plank length to the observable universe, everything obey to the same laws, transposed to the scale.

bullshit science will never stop to make dream people with unprovable theories.

quantum physics just means, regular physics with unknown/unfound formulas.

Oh Shocked So all those experiments that show quantum effects are actually just fraudulent scams?

yes, it is, and it isn't.

quantum is and is not at the same time Smile
