I'd love to see how they did this experiment...(rolls eyes)
It sounds nice and all, but I doubt they did it. What does it even mean for electrons to "communicate with each other?" and how would you measure
It's impossible with our technology. If someone would care to show me the details of the experiment and prove me wrong, go for it.
I'm almost not sure whether to be more astonished, or amused. You "skeptics" never fail to do either, for me.
What you are here, trying to eye-rollingly debunk, is called "entanglement" and has become accepted among mainstream physicists. Just because
may not be well-read or intelligent enough to have heard of this before, does not mean it doesn't exist.
Awesome job, though, trying to debunk accepted science. If you want to keep going, I know a big scary windmill that needs some slaying.
To be fair, your questions about the technology required are not bad ones. They're good, in fact, IMO. But your lack of understanding does not
invalidate it. If you're curious, perhaps looking up the information might be better than making derisive-sounding comments.
And on a more serious note, another experiment was done, where one single particle could be seen in two separate points in space. Physics seems very
strange, the more we learn and experiment. But I'm sure you would consider that "nonsense" since you've neither heard of it, nor seen it. Perhaps
you should look it up-- it's interesting stuff.

the Chicago Cubs, getting Anne Hathaway the Best Actress award she deserves, and making everyone vegan so we can finally save the simulated planet.
Viva la simulation.
An interesting thought, but if all the animals are simulated, does it really matter as much? Likewise with any death, or all of life's tragedy, etc?
Is it truly meaningful
in any way other than the symbolic, or temporary (in this theory, simulated) emotions?
