Physicists at the University of Geneva in Switzerland have devised a new kind of quantum experiment using humans as photon detectors, and in doing so have made the quantum phenomenon of entanglement visible to the naked eye for the first time.

Using a similar set-up to that of Sciarrino, Gisin and his team entangled two photons. One was sent to a standard photon detector, while the other was amplified using a machine that generated a shower of photons with the same polarization, thereby, in theory, generating a micro–macro entangled state.

But there was a hitch. What Gisin's team saw was not micro-macro entanglement. Gisin had a nagging suspicion that the Bell test may not be valid for macroscopic objects, so he deliberately set up the experiment so that the state of the second photon was measured before it was amplified. According to the rules of quantum mechanics, this act of measurement would break the entanglement, meaning that the first photon and the light field could not be in an entangled state. The system should not have passed the Bell test.

Even though Gisin's team did not see micro-macro entanglement, he notes that the positive Bell test does show that the original pair of single photons was entangled before amplification, confirming micro-micro entanglement existed at the start of the experiment.

"The experiment is lovely because in this sense you can 'see' entanglement," says Sciarrino. "It brings quantumness closer to human experience."

The human brain needs all the help it can get with quantum entanglement.

lol...
is there something I'm not understanding? I don't know much about the subject...

I believe what you humans refer to as quantum entanglement refers to the 'theory' about two objects occupying the same space at the same time, if that helps to dumb it down for you

Actually it's two particles interacting with each other with perceived faster than light speeds regardless of distance.

So your current understanding tells you,

And your understanding is...?

The quantum entaglement of subatomic particles can be understood as a "bond" (information-wise) between two particles that is not limited by the constraints of the "macro" world. From one point of view this means FTL communication between separated objects. But this exchange of information that is impervious to distance is still a mistery. As our paradigm requires a "medium" in which patterns can be encoded to transmit information...
Awesome subject...

Btw, what the hell is up with that "you humans..." comment, do we have geezuz with us?
Please enlighten us!



Peace.

QET seems to be a mystery because you can't comprehend the complexities of the "bond" between the multiple QET subjects, at the moment of activated QET they simply become one merged subject at all relative points in space & time. It is one of the more beautiful observable acts in the universe. It will take much more time for your science to reach the required level to observe true QET so I do not expect you to truely comprehend until long after then.
