You don’t seem to have got the point. I’m not even talking about Linear equations, Quadratic, Exponential, Cubic, Quartic, Biquadratic Radical equations or Absolute value equations
We think of fundamental particles as being very small, but "relic" neutrinos left over from the big bang could be big. Really big. According to the 22 May Physical Review Letters, the quantum wave describing one could be billions of light-years across, a good fraction of the observable universe. Such a large wave raises questions about how a quantum particle interacts with gravity at the scale of galaxies and galaxy clusters--questions that remain unresolved.
Relic neutrinos, like the relic photons that make up the cosmic microwave background, are leftovers from the hot, crowded universe that prevailed 13.7 billion years ago. Even though the particle density has greatly decreased as the universe expanded, there are still roughly 300 relic neutrinos per cubic centimeter, nearly as many as the number of relic photons. The average energy has also decreased over time to such a low value that relic neutrinos are completely undetectable in earthly detectors.

the first thing this made me think of is (i am way wrong here, just trying to explain what i am talking about since i cant think of its name) the effect of two plasma balls being made from one object, then one ball of plasma is spun. the neat part is the other ball of plasma regardless of how great the distance between the two, it will spin immediately, , even if say it were on the other side of the solar system, greatly surpassing the speed limit placed on light.
i cant help but think maybe these neutrinos are responsible.
if anyone knows the name of the experiment i am talking about, please let me know, its really buggin me

Oh indeed. Another frightening thing is that it opens the possibility that if you stretched a wave so far out, COULD you destroy it? could you alter the law of conservation of mass and energy? That is scary.
Once my mother actually told me about some twilight zone episode or something about the future when all matter has become energy and waves and 2 people in love make themselves into matter again to have a physical relationship. How scary is that? of course sentient energy is science fiction, but the thought of a universe that's expanded so far that all matter and energy has collapsed into dead waves is frightening.
