The God Effect: Quantum Entanglement, Science's Strangest Phenomenon.
Albert Einstein considered the idea of quantum entanglement Quantum entanglement is a quantum mechanical phenomenon in which the quantum states of two or more objects have to be described with reference to each other, even though the individual objects may be spatially separated. , like much of quantum physics quantum physics
n. (used with a sing. verb)
The branch of physics that uses quantum theory to describe and predict the properties of a physical system.
See quantum mechanics. , to be ridiculous. The phenomenon asserts that two particles can be connected so that changes in one are instantly reflected in the other, even if those two particles are light-years apart. Despite that strangeness, Clegg, an author with a background in physics, reports that entanglement has now been well documented. Known as "the God effect," entanglement is an area of constant development in current physics because of its astounding a·stound
tr.v. a·stound·ed, a·stound·ing, a·stounds
To astonish and bewilder. See Synonyms at surprise.
[From Middle English astoned, past participle of astonen, potential real-life applications, Clegg asserts. For instance, entanglement could make possible codes that are unbreakable, instantaneous communication across any distance, and even teleportation tel·e·por·ta·tion
A hypothetical method of transportation in which matter or information is dematerialized, usually instantaneously, at one point and recreated at another. . The author describes the history of the theory from its origins in 1935 as Einstein's attempt to discredit quantum physics. Physicist John Bell nevertheless took up the cause of entanglement and prompted other scientists to test the theory in various thought and laboratory experiments.
