An ingenious experiment in which tiny parcels of light, or photons, are produced out of empty space has confirmed a long-standing theory that a vacuum contains quantum fluctuations of energy. In a landmark result published in the journal Nature, an international team of researchers has demonstrated for the first time a strange phenomenon known as the dynamical Casimir effect, or DCE for short.

Science says that everything is connected. Quantum Entangle and now this...science is proving this beauty. It's only a matter of time until people understand their true spiritual nature.
Correct, but it does say any particle which becomes entangled with another particle will always remain entangled with the other particle no matter how far you move them apart. Now consider that everything in the Universe came from a singularity. Everything in the Universe is entangled.
Quantum entanglement does NOT say everything is connected.
The fact you think that virtual particles might be from another Universe just goes to show you don't understand the quantum mechanics behind it at all.
At best, I would call this as possible evidence of another universe. Even at that, it's just my humble opinion. The only reason I would even guess at this possibility is due to the what if factor that particles from our universe might have a chance at being viewed as virtual particles in another universe.

Can someone please baby step me through exactly what this means??? I mean, really baby step me, cause I have no clue what implications this means and I never took a physics class, but I am super fascinated.
To me, it sounds like energy was discovered in what was thought to be empty space? Yes? No? Help!
