Quantum Entanglement by Quasimanga Quantum Entanglement by Quasimanga
This idea came via the Scientific American podcast where a journalist was discussing quantum entanglement and how entangled particles have an instantaneous effect on one another, even across great distances. Apparently, this breaks Einsteinian relativity, because entangled particles exchange information faster than the speed of light.

The way the journalist on the podcast described the linked particles reminded me of the Chinese red string of fate concept. The string links people together that are destined to meet—like soulmates –or

About the science talk above, please cut me some slack if I’ve completely botched entanglement. Aside from watching Carl Sagan’s Cosmos series several times, and occasionally listening to science related books and podcasts, I have no formal background in science. I make drawings for a living. ;)

Characters sketched on 9”x12” Strathmore Series 400 Sketch paper. Image finalized and painted in Photoshop CS 2. About a week from concept to completion.

Some of of the greatest physicists also had a passion for art.

This is so inspirational that I died.

That place where string theory meets the red string...

No, you haven't completely botched entanglement, but entangled particles don't violate relativity as information (in the context of actual "information theory") isn't actually transferred. To transfer information, the particles resolving from their entangled state would have to be non-random - but to do this you'd have to interact with the particles to be able to set them in the state you want, and this action would destroy the entanglement in a random way. Random noise in, random noise out, no information transferred at all.

I would have never thought of using the idea of quantum entanglement in this way! I love how you incorporated all the chalk drawings, calculations, planets, and so on~

Thats the same I was about to write :D
Indeed great Work

I've been following some work done at Caltec this last year. They've successfully pulled this off on VERY small scales (like two electrons); but I'm wondering just how close this puts us to true Superluminal communication.

This inspired my first submission :)

I'm a science nerd. Like you, I don't have any academic learning in it, but it's a blast to learn about it.
Your picture is a cute connection to it. Makes me think of what scientist send their love ones on V-day.

Works for me. I hope you don't mind if use it to talk about vectors in my website?

Have you heard of twin souls? I'm not sure if I believe it to be true but I have had dreams about one person in paticular and they are always intense. And no matter how far away I never feel away. Does that make sense? Maybe I'm creating this feeling but I've never experienced anything like this.....I believe in reincarnation so I often think it's just past life experiences making me think I'm so connected but the dreams make me feel that it's real. I don't know how many times I've prayed and meditated on losing these intense feelings and only to find they have strengthened. But what is life without the mystery?

What a wonderful concept and an absolutely beautiful rendering of it--well done!

Hey, I really like this and would like permission to use in a blog. Let me know how to proceed.

Very Best,

That's cool.

ya, well, I discosvered your art back in '04, maybe earlier, on your other websites, and I've kept up with it ever since. always been one of my favorite styles.
hanatamago Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2009
Thank you for this. My work is actually related to this very much LOL. (quantum entanglement, I mean) I love this very much!
sgtbuckwheat Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2009
I like the concept. I know what you're talking about, at least I think I do (we might be thinking of two different things). I think this video [link] at 8:30 is what you're talking about

Yes, quantum chemistry is one of my interests (even though I only got a 2.5 in that course), that's how I found this. Really cool concept, as I've said before.
LarissaFae Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2009
Absolutely beautiful! This picture's become my inspiration for my NaNoWriMo novel this year. ^_^ I've credited you for the inspiration, and was wondering if I could use this as the cover art picture, please?

Quasimanga Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Agh! Crap! I missed your comment. It isn't too late is it? Yes, please use it. I'm honored. Permission granted. When you're done with the novel, send me a link I'll append it to this image. Once again, sorry about that.
LarissaFae Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2009
Thank you so much! No, it's not too late at all; I have until November 30th to write 50,000 words. I'm already at 12,707 words. I'll definitely upload the novel once I'm finished with it and let you know! Thank you again!

Aww, this is such a beautiful concept, and well executed!
Chaoseed Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2009
Pretty cool. I saw the title, then I looked at the picture and I immediately knew you had thought of the "red string". I think the concept came across quite well, good job. :)

Looks amazing, I love those kin of things but sadely I am not scientist even though my husbands likes to call me that way :XD:
Excellent work :#1:

The theories regarding entanglement change so frequently that anyone who hassles you on a depiction of it runs the risk of themselves being wrong in the near future. =)
Until there's a quantum theory of gravity, it's farily safe to fidget around in quantum mechanics.

Amazing what a little bit of inspiration can do. :)
