QUANTUM PHYSICS AND THE WORKING This short film seeks to expose, through the story of a man who sealed papers, the concept of autorrupción. Related to the unsolved problems of quantum physics, the autorrupción is defined as the act of interrupted himself outside of himself through space-time paradox. Autorrupción Usually the result is a repetitive behavior that may evolve into a feedback cycle which, in turn, result in infinite loops. This feature is leading the authors to relate this concept to the universe known work of postmodern man. In both cases the man is caught in a situation you do not want and that the only existing form of leave, is to re-enter.
