“All particles in the history of the cosmos have interacted with other particles in the manner revealed by the Aspect experiments … Also consider … that quantum entanglement grows exponentially with the number of particles involved in the original quantum state and that there is no theoretical limit on the number of these entangled particles. If this is the case, the universe on a very basic level could be a vast web of particles, which remain in contact with one another over any distance in ‘no time’ in the absence of the transfer of energy or information. This suggests, however strange or bizarre it might seem, that all of physical reality is a single quantum system that responds together to further interactions” ~ Robert Nadeau and Menas Kafatos, The Non-Local Universe
(Might have to read me that book, in the long slow summery stretch of non-uni reading time that hangs out before me and makes me feel rich :P Also looking forward to reading The Night Circus. But I digress.)
"Nadeau and Kafatos argue that we live in a non-local universe which is the obvious conclusion from the quantum entanglement experiments. The fact is quanta can exchange information over any distance in the universe instantaneously. These entanglement experiments prove that Eintstein was incorrect in stating that nothing travels faster than light (186,000 miles per second). Quantum information “travels” at infinite speed “arriving” at its destination without any time elapsing. Here we see how the Newtonian/Einsteinian language of a local universe fails to describe our actual reality. It’s not that information is “traveling” at infinite “speed” to “arrive” at another location, but rather that the universe with all its so-called parts and particles is actually One non-local quantum system. Information from one particle to another doesn’t need to “travel” there because the space between them is illusory, as is the language of calling them “separate” particles. As we have seen, before observation quanta are not particles with definite attributes and location; they are merely waves in the One universal quantum ocean until our conscious observation individualizes the wave into droplets of experience" (Eric at The Atlantean Conspiracy)
The mystics and those with their ears and feet to the ground have been predicting for decades and centuries that the scientists will reach the top of the mountain and find them already there.
We are now living in a world where that is happening before our eyes.
You know when you're in love, and you're parted from your beloved, and you miss them, and you've got this big swell of lurve going on in your chest, and you feel that your connection is so strong that surely they will feel it when you send it to them telepathically across the miles?
Well, they do.
Except it's not only the province of those in love (although perhaps they are closest to it, in a way, closest to not forgetting it and entering into it, being all obsessed and floaty as they are).
It's not only the province of those in love. It's the province of all of us.
It's a beautiful thang. Breathe.
