    But some of you will understand what this is all about. How sub-atomic particles ‘communicate’ across space. From The Economist.

    It is extraordinary… and despite years of coming back to this idea again and again, it’s still impossible to get my head around it.

    The trouble is, we’re always looking for intuitive solutions, and the quantum world goes against all of our intuitive ideas.

    But there is hope:

    There remains, alas, one hitch that could explain all these counterintuitive findings. Just maybe, every single event that will ever be, from experimenters’ choices of the means of measurement to the choice of article you will read next, were all predetermined at the universe’s birth, and all these experiments are playing out just as predetermined. That, however, is one for the metaphysicists.

    😉
