217 – Entanglement …

“Quantum entanglement is a physical phenomenon that occurs when pairs or groups of particles are generated, interact, or share spatial proximity in ways such that the quantum state of each particle cannot be described independently of the state of the other(s), even when the particles are separated by a large distance.” Wikipedia.


Doing my daily breathing exercises – deep inhaling and exhaling – makes me keenly conscious not only of how instinctive my breathing process is but how dependent my life is on it. My body, as it has been doing from the moment I took my first breath, takes in oxygen from the environment and, combining it with the foods I consume, convert it into the physical energy that empowers me as a cohesive being, to move around, to do things, to develop relationships, to think thoughts, to create a mind that not only lets me reflect upon myself and the world around me, but upon the world beyond the reach of my organic limitations.

The only way this process is realized is through the intimate interconnectedness – Entanglement – of every single component in my body; a level of connectivity so immediate and so thorough that to take a step in a specific direction, the particles in my brain know, instantly, how and when the particles in my feet will act – this is the only way I can go places, this is the only way I can be me, this is the physical force of Entanglement that gives the determined progression to my presence in the world.

The more I study the beauty and insight of theories like Entanglement which seek to understand the nature of our Universe, the more certain I am in my assertion that they not only explain the nature of atomic particles, but are also good enough to explain the nature of being human.

To illustrate this claim, let me apply the tenets of the above Wikipedia definition of Entanglement, not to pairs or groups of particles, but to us.

Entanglement is a physical phenomenon that occurs when pairs or groups of human beings are engendered (with species-specific DNA), interact (with conscious awareness of ourselves and others), or share spatial proximity (with the same need for oxygen and the chemical balance of  the Earth to be alive) in ways such that the state of each human being cannot be described independently of the state of another, even when we are separated by a large distance, i.e. one human being in the Sahara and the other in Antarctica.

Entanglement has been scientifically proved to be an incredibly ingenious assembling Force, possibly as primal as the Universe itself, and decisively not random since it is obvious that it progresses toward complexity and order – it conceivably began to manifest it power of self-organization with the early atomic particles as they began to assemble into increasingly complex systems.

And even though Entanglement has been proven to be a primal Force that, without regards to where on Earth each of us is    nor what the color of our skin is, connects us all with the shared characteristics of humankind; and even though Entanglement is proven to be a creative and organizing Force that assembles every single atom, every single cell, every single organ in our bodies into the magic of conscious self-awareness, it then makes me wonder why it is not a critical subject, not just in the Physics classroom but in those of elementary studies?

The knowledge that opens our perception to our intimate connection with the world, catapults us into higher levels of Humanity.
