...The head-scratcher is: the measurement is made before the decision is made, and it is accurate. "Classical correlations can be decided after they are measured," says Xiao-song Ma, the writer of the study. Entanglement can be created "after the entangled particles have been measured and may no longer exist."

Do We Live In A Holographic Universe? | Wake Up World

Do We Live In A Holographic Universe? | Wake Up World | Strangeness of Reality | Scoop.it

The nature of nonlocality was proved by physicist Alain Aspect in 1982.

 

"Aspect and his team discovered that under certain circumstances subatomic particles such as electrons are able to instantaneously communicate with each other regardless of the distance separating them. It doesn’t matter whether they are 10 feet or 10 billion miles apart."

 

The idea of 'spooky action at a distance' always troubled Einstein because it violates the 'law' that no communication can travel faster than the speed of light.

 

However, David Bohm understood Aspect's findings to mean that objective reality does not have a solid and separate existence, but that the universe is a hologram.

 

Although the article suggests that these findings do not hold any meaning for your everyday existence, this is not true. Understanding the nature of reality has a far greater impact for you as you learn how you can literally change your everyday experiences.

Test Subject: Uri Geller | Strangeness of Reality | Scoop.it

Genius, they say, comes at a price, and nowhere is this more evident than in the turbulent life of science fiction author Philip K Dick (see FT161:42-46). Dick's ill health and demons of the mind were exacerbated by his prodigious intake of barbiturates and amphetamines, but he transformed his own experiences into some of his most memorable works.
