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 meetlike soulmates or E-harmony.com.
About the science talk above, please cut me some slack if Ive completely botched entanglement. Aside from watching Carl Sagans 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.
