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 E-harmony.com.

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.

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.

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?

The link to my NaNo page is: [link]

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.

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!

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.
