Quantum stuff is hard to understand because it creates paradoxes in how we currently observe and think about the world. It's like understanding 2-D, existing in 3-D and trying to imagine 4-D. It's really hard to wrap one's mind around the implications of non-locality and everything being connected at the quantum level.
The first experimental evidence of “telepathy” between one strand of DNA and another comes from a 2008 article in the Journal of Physical Chemistry. In it, researchers report that DNA strands that had no contact with each other, or with proteins that could facilitate their communication, were able to recognize similarities with other DNA strands from a distance, and then congregate together. Identical strands were twice as likely to associate with each other as with strands with different molecular sequences. The researchers had no explanation for the mechanism by which such a phenomenon might occur, even though they were able to observe its existence.

Something occurred to me. If we can affect the "choice" of a photon after it has made its decision, based on our future choice to observe it and how "free will" comes into play, sent a chill. Seeing time has no relevance on choices, then could that mean we are actually in reverse? Bear with me. The universe is expanding and accelerating when it should be slowing down. Gravity does this when you drop something, except when you watch it backwards, it slows down to the point when you dropped it (big bang)
Present free will affects past events as per Wheeler's delayed choice experiment. To get around the local realism loophole, if reality is indeed backwards or in reverse, it would explain how we can "appear" to have free will when in actuality, we're doing what we're programmed to do. For a lack of a better word. Follow what I'm trying to articulate?
