What is 'photon in a double-slit or what is a double-slit experiment?

According to Shuvodeep Das, a professional and science enthusiast having interests in astro-quantum physics, "Quantum physics and especially mechanics is one of the most popular theories that has ever been proposed in science but is also most difficult to comprehend practically. Although, physicists using mathematics have described the superposition of states with a wave function and operations on the wave function correctly determine the probability of each of the possible outcomes."

"One way to test this by performing a "double-slit experiment". In this test, a photon is passed through two slits, wherein, firstly, when the photon propagates from a gun to one of the slits, it exists in a superposition of different states (probability of going through one slit, the other slit, neither slit or both slits). This confirms the intermediate state when the interference patterns are observed on the wall," Shuvodeep Das added.

"It is also measured as in which slit the photon passed through, which then causes the electron to exist in a definite state. That being said, you can only know the probabilities of where the photon will land; you cannot predict exactly where it will show up," Shuvodeep Das said.

Shuvodep Das further explains, "In terms of quantum mechanics, all the outcomes that can possibly occur "actually happens", but one at a time in each Universe. Therefore, it will take an infinite number of parallel Universes to account for all the possibilities.

"This shows any physical body possessing energy coexisting in multiple universes at a time, and therefore when one dies its just a form that is no more in a universe but exists in another," Das said.

"As the theory suggests, death doesn't exist since it was neither created nor can be destroyed and just ventures from one universe to another, in different forms, at a time... since energy was "neither created nor destroyed," Das mentioned.

Sushant Singh and Vincent van Gogh's painting

It is pertinent to note that Sushant Singh Rajput was a follower of Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh thus saying can be observed that in the last Twitter cover picture shows a painting by Vincent van Gogh. The painter also took his life, incidentally, Sushant Singh Rajput also. The painting shows a tree which is a cypress tree. This is a tree of death or something which refers to life after death in the Mediterranean countries. Vincent van Gogh wrote about existing of life even after death."

In a "Letter from Vincent van Gogh to Theo van Gogh" the Dutch painter said, "It would be so simple and would account so much for the terrible things in life, which now amaze and wound us so, if life had yet another hemisphere, invisible it is true, but where one lands when one dies. To those who make this interesting and solemn journey, our best wishes and sympathy." Theo van Gogh was his brother.

Now, mentions like photon in a double-slit experiment and Gogh's painting "The Starry Night" as Twitter background photo, is it a clue to the world that the actor -- who was himself a science enthusiast and had an interest in astronomy, physics  -- was trying to try something with his life that is not usual, since his scientific and philosophical believes hint us about a certain purview or perception on after-life.

Vincent Van Gogh's painting -- The Starry Night.

Van Gogh's painted "The Starry Night" when he was in an asylum and going through pain and depression.

According to Wikipedia, "The Starry Night by Van Gogh was painted during the day in Van Gogh's ground-floor studio, it would be inaccurate to state that the picture was painted from memory. The view has been identified as the one from his bedroom window, facing east, a view which Van Gogh painted variations of no fewer than twenty-one times, including The Starry Night.

"Through the iron-barred window," he wrote to his brother, Theo, around May 23, 1889, "I can see an enclosed square of wheat ... above which, in the morning, I watch the sun-rise in all its glory." 

Van Gogh depicted the view at different times of the day and under various weather conditions, including sunrise, moonrise, sunshine-filled days, overcast days, windy days, and one day with rain. While the hospital staff did not allow Van Gogh to paint in his bedroom, he was able there to make sketches in ink or charcoal on paper; eventually, he would base newer variations on previous versions. The pictorial element uniting all of these paintings is the diagonal line coming in from the right depicting the low rolling hills of the Alpilles mountains. In fifteen of the twenty-one versions, cypress trees are visible beyond the far wall enclosing the wheat field. Van Gogh telescoped the view in six of these vague paintings, most notably in F717 Wheat Field with Cypresses and The Starry Night, bringing the trees closer to the picture plane."

Sushant Singh Rajput battling depression?

It is also true that Sushant Singh Rajput was in depression and taking medicines for the past six months. Some reports say that he was not taking his medicines for the past few days and finally took the extreme step to exit the mortal world. However, it is not known what were the reasons that pushed the actor into depression.

So if all the dots when connected together, does it suggest that Sushant Singh Rajput's extreme step has something to do with all this.....?
