Spooky action in a piglet

What could be cuter than tardigrades, and more misterious than quantum entanglement?

And now researchers claim to have put several "moss piglets" into quantum entanglement. Although other researchers dismiss that claim.




The authors of the new arXiv paper decided to test whether a multicellular organism like a tardigrade could develop such a relationship. In their experiment, the team collected three tardigrades from a roof gutter in Denmark. In their animated state, the tardigrades measured between 0.008 and 0.018 inches (0.2 to 0.45 millimeters) — however, after the researchers froze the tardigrades and sent them into a tun state, the animals shrunk to about a third of that size.

From there, the team froze the tardigrades even further, cooling them to a fraction of a degree above absolute zero — the coldest temperature a tardigrade has ever been exposed to and survived.

The team placed each frozen tardigrade between two capacitor plates of a superconductor circuit that formed a quantum bit, or "qubit" — a unit of information used in quantum computing. When the tardigrade came into contact with the qubit (named Qubit B), it shifted the qubit's resonant frequency. That tardigrade-qubit-hybrid was then coupled to a second nearby circuit (Qubit A), so that the two qubits became entangled. Over several tests that followed, the researchers saw that the frequency of both qubits and the tardigrade changed in tandem, resembling a three-part entangled system.

Seventeen days after the tardigrades entered their tun states, the researchers gently warmed them up in an attempt to revive them. One of the tardigrades returned to its animated state, while the other two died. That survivor effectively has become the first quantum entangled animal in history, the researchers claimed.

I think experimenters are sometimes a bit too hopeful...or they engage in too much word play.

Poor little tardigrades.

There they were, just minding their own buisness and living life and some asshole scientists decides to experiment on them.

Resilient little creatures, and two died.

But hey, the first quantum entangled animal in history.

I fail to understand the reasoning behind this experiment.

I mean hey yeah, new accomplishment and yay whoo scientific achievement and all.

But if some scientist picked me up out of my home and started running experiments on me I'd be a little pissed.

I don't understand animal experimentation.

What is the ultimate goal here?

There's really nothing to "understand," GENERAL EYES. Like so very many things done now in the name of so-called science, they did it because they could. It didn't need to make sense or accomplish anything. Didn't have to make a positive contribution to anything. Could even be destructive.

They just did it because they could.

True.

I just fail to understand their thought process and desire to modify the world through lifeform experimentation.

Why did they have to use a living thing?

Why a biological experiment?

Why not a random object?

Why a lifeform?

I'm a fan of science and appreciate the advances that were the result of animal experimentation, it just saddens me that so many creatures have suffered and died to advance human knowledge and various medicines and so forth.

Nature is cruel and I understand this.

It still makes me sad.

Maybe I'm being too sentimental.

Honor the Fallen.

Those who died that we might live.

Those who gave their lives.

I have no idea why I'm so emotional about this.

Must be the alignment of the plants or the phase of the moon.

It comes in waves.

Their experiment, apparently, was to find out if they could replicate quantum entanglement in animals (even if these are some of the most basic animals), as it was done with bacteria.


This effect may be able to transcend the subatomic realm, as scientists attempted to prove in a 2018 paper in the Journal of Physics Communications. That team found that certain photosynthetic bacteria were capable of becoming entangled with light photons, when the resonant frequency of light in a mirrored room eventually synchronized with the frequency of electrons in the bacteria's photosynthetic molecules, Live Science previously reported.


It looks like most scientists think this experiment did not achieve what is claimed, as the tardigrades did not show any signs of quantum entanglement, they only changed the frequency of the qubits they were put in contact with, as any other object would have done.

PS: quantum entanglement with living organisms, even if only partial, is an interesting proposition, as it may explain some events people have, like when someone knows what is happening with someone else a long distance away, but I suppose we are still far from proving or disproving it.

Ummm…how do you know that your…life…isn’t that experiment…?

Perhaps your merely an NPC…in an simulation iteration…

Exactly how i feel about the covid vaccine.

Based on the past thirty years of my life dealing with the effects of schizophrenia and all the experiences I've been through might explain why I feel such empathy and compassion for these poor little creatures.

I don't know what is going on, but I would love for it to be over.
