Determinism is a Thing of the Past

I used to be a nonbeliever.  I was a nonbeliever for over a half of a century.  Not only that, when you think on everything, cause and effect and the set variables that interfere, there really isn’t any other way to consider faith except to trust everything to what we don’t know.   731 more words

The Age of Entanglement: When Quantum Physics Was Reborn


By Louisa Gilder

Synopsis: In The Age of Entanglement, Louisa Gilder brings to life one of the pivotal debates in twentieth century physics. In 1935, Albert Einstein famously showed that, according to the quantum theory, separated particles could act as if intimately connected–a phenomenon which he derisively described as “spooky action at a distance.” In that same year, Erwin Schrödinger christened this correlation “entanglement.” Yet its existence was mostly ignored until 1964, when the Irish physicist John Bell demonstrated just how strange this entanglement really was. 103 more words
