Spooky Action at a Distance

Einstein’s numbers predicted it. Alas, this classic physicist rejected it. Tiny, entangled particles in mutual dependence Separated by the longest distances. Spooky action at a distance, We cannot grasp this miracle, Yet, science verifies the fact. Objects the size of Buckyballs Can link trillions of miles apart. This communication or teleportation ten thousand times faster than light! Yes, au revoir light speed, From your limits are we freed! Spooky action at a distance, Engineers dream of quantum computers. Might we also harness this quandary To reach the outer edges of space? Might this anomalous principle Account for certain sky visitors, Objects authoritatively recorded, Abruptly perishing in our clouds? Spooky action at a distance.

Well said; we will. It is really quite simple: space, all matter is a continuity. Separation is an illusion of consciousness (senses not fully developed). The distant object and the near object are really the same object. Think of the sea, but not in terms of, smaller particles crammed together to form a large pool. Think of the sea as a large continuity, differentiated by wave motion. Where those waves meet, the crests of waves, the peaks jumping up at us are what we call particles. Joe.

Very well summarized, Joe! Think of the stream of consciousness as did William James. Think of the seamlessness of consciousness as did Carl Jung. Our selective attention is arbitrary. We cannot comprehend our connectedness. Your comment is very thought-provoking. Thank you, Joe. Be well!

Indeed, the perplexing (fascinating) quantum entanglement mystery may actually occur outside of space-time. Thanks, Stan!
