  • "To put it in a nutshell, in this quest I first found that whatever way you look at it the quantum mechanical formalism, when taken at face value, compels us to consider that two particles that have once interacted always remain bound in a very strange, hardly understandable way even when they are far apart, the connection being independent of distance.

    Even though this connection-at-a-distance does not permit us to transmit messages, clearly it is real. In other words space, so essential in classical physics, seems to play a considerably less basic role in quantum physics.

    I soon found out, as often happens, that these things had been known for quite a long time. Schrödinger had even given them a name: entanglement..."

    Quantum weirdness: What we call reality is just a state of mind.
