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. ;)

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.

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

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~

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?
