AT THE END OF THE TWIG: ARE THERE LIMITS TO ENTANGLEMENT? IS ...

As I indicated yesterday, this has been a very strange week for me, for people have sent many articles detailing recent discoveries in technology and science, and as might be expected, many of them come from the wild and weird world of quantum mechanics, which seems to grow weirder by the week (as if it wasn't weird enough already). Mr. J.K., Mr. V.T., and Mr. A. and a few others sent the following three articles:

Scientists Have Set a Limit For Quantum Entanglement - And It's Really Freaking Powerful

Space time 'fluctuates wildly' claims new theory that could shed new light on how the universe is expanding

Scientists Achieve Direct Counterfactual Quantum Communication For The First Time

Now, as one might expect, I'm going to crawl way out onto the end of the twig of high octane speculation here, where the weight of the speculation far exceeds the ability of the twig to support it. I can't help it; I'm a hack from South Dakota, and it's what hacks from South Dakota do. Besides, I'm also a Capricorn, and crawling way out onto the end of tree branches is also what goats do:

So, with that huge caveat in mind, there are a few statements in these articles that have me wondering. Consider this statement, when scientists subjected entangled particles to micro-gravitational, and then hyper-gravitational, acceleration:

"Our results show that quantum entanglement is unaffected by non-inertial motion to within the resolution of our test-system," the researchers conclude.

"This represents the first experimental effort exposing a genuine quantum system to milli-g and hyper-g, and extends the experimental regime in which quantum effects can be said to exist in harmony with relativity."

Consulting my Scientismese to Hack English dictionary, this translated to my simple mind as: "entanglement is not affected by inertial systems", or, "entanglement is not affected by gravity." Now, granted, the scientists conducting this odd, but very important, experiment, are not saying that. What they want to do is scale it up, and see if in fact there is some limit or "boundary condition" where under extreme gravitation entanglement might be affected or perhaps broken. Would it break, for example, in the extreme conditions of a black hole? Or, conversely, would the conditions in a black hole actually be the matrix for a kind of "hyper-entanglement"? I suspect (here comes that standing on the end of the twig part) that no such boundary condition will be found, or, that if it is, under certain inertial or gravitational conditions, entanglement might actually be enhanced, and that as such, entanglement (which, let us remember, is the entanglement of information) might be a clue, perhaps, to anti-gravity or contrabary.

Which brings me to the second article, and these ideas:

New calculations suggest space-time is wildly fluctuating, swinging back and forth between expansion and contraction at a scale ‘billions and billions’ times smaller than an electron.

The researchers from the University of British Columbia suggest there is a huge density of vacuum energy in the universe, as predicted by some – but, in their calculations, oscillations between expansion and contraction cause it to nearly cancel itself out.

But, it doesn’t, and instead gives rise to a tiny net effect that slowly causes the universe to expand at an accelerating rate, they say.

Again, to my simple hack-goat-from-South-Dakota-on-the-end-of-the-twig mind, this sounds a bit like what we've heard before: the lattice of space-time is not a static phenonemon: it appears to be that way but upon analysis, those "nodes" in the lattice result from a kind of zero-summing at the node, but with a slight residual leading to a translation, and as a result of that, there is a slight asymmetry driving the expansion of the universe. If that even more wild and woolly speculation is true, then connect it with the first phenomenon: manipulation of that contraction and rarefaction might also be a clue to the engineering of that lattice directly (and note, a contraction or compression and rarefaction such as the authors are speaking is a longitudinal wave form... and who does that sound like?).

Then we have the following statements from the third article:

Quantum communication is a strange beast, but one of the weirdest proposed forms of it is called counterfactual communication - a type of quantum communication where no particles travel between two recipients.

Theoretical physicists have long proposed that such a form of communication would be possible, but now, for the first time, researchers have been able to experimentally achieve it - transferring a black and white bitmap image from one location to another without sending any physical particles.

If that sounds a little too out-there for you, don't worry, this is quantum mechanics, after all. It's meant to be complicated. But once you break it down, counterfactual quantum communication actually isn't as bizarre as it sounds.

First up, let's talk about how this differs from regular quantum communication, also known as quantum teleportation, because isn't that also a form of particle-less information transfer?

Well, not quite. Regular quantum teleportation is based on the principle of entanglement - two particles that become inextricably linked so that whatever happens to one will automatically affect the other, no matter how far apart they are.

But wait, there's more:

Direct counterfactual quantum communication on the other hands relies on something other than quantum entanglement. Instead, it uses a phenomenon called the quantum Zeno effect.

Very simply, the quantum Zeno effect occurs when an unstable quantum system is repeatedly measured.

In the quantum world, whenever you look at a system, or measure it, the system changes. And in this case, unstable particles can never decay while they're being measured (just like the proverbial watched kettle that will never boil), so the quantum Zeno effect creates a system that's effectively frozen with a very high probability.

Now, putting all this in Hack-ese again, one simply freezes the system by freezing the observation of it in a certain state. Granted, all this is at a quantum, sub-atomic particle level. But it doesn't take much imagination to figure out that someone, somewhere, will want to test the whole idea by "scaling it up" to "see what happens", or, in this case, what doesn't happen. While all the focus of the experiment is on particle-less communication, I therefore cannot help but wonder the extent to which the whole thing might be tailored to the engineering of micro-timelines and "reality engineering." (And, for those willing to crawl way out on to the end of this twig with me, I cannot help but wonder if the original Zeno paradox itself might be a legacy phenomenon of precisely this type of physics-observer-based thinking.... yea, I know, I've lost it. That's too much of a whopper. But still... I can't help but think of Plato and his "mathematicals".)

Putting all this together, what it boils down to is that these experiments and ideas have truly cosmic implications, that mankind is taking the first faltering steps into a cosmological engineering capability.  For now, the capability is small... but... if they can be "scaled up..."

See you on the flip side...

  1. Plato and his “Mathematicals”
    Leibniz and his “Monads”
    All great things have little beginnings……
    Having the mind and mindset so as to keep both eyes and mind open

  2. This is how we can live truly forever. Once entanglement is understood, all we need is to learn how to prevent ourselves from thinking ourselves into entanglement and cause our energy to flow into unwanted directions, blocking our trunk of eternal energy flow. Our bodies will go with the flow and won’t die, no matter where we are in the universe. The trick is to know what we put into our mind. Mind is the builder or the killer.

    1. In alchemy aether is equilibrium of four elements. On human level it is a harmonious state of mind. Geometrically, it is the axis of rotation.

      Spin is always relative to a system of reference. Centrifugal force can therefore only exist relative to the whole system. Ergo the spin must affect the whole system at once.

      How is that possible, unless aether has an omnipresence causing spatiotemporal collapse?

      I presume the pyramid can tap into the spin of omnipresence. The question is how? The galaxy is a spinning wheel, thus the Black Sun must be the Great Spinster.

  3. I hope I’m not sound stupid here, Physic is really not my thing, therefore I’m not trying to pretend I fully understand this article at all.

    But I do have a question about – quote: New calculations suggest space-time is wildly fluctuating, swinging back and forth between expansion and contraction at a scale ‘billions and billions’ times smaller than an electron. end quote.

    Could it possible the Space-time/Universe like a software program, the more information/module add to it, it appeared expending, when information or a module being taken it out or use by another software program, so it appeared to be contraction, which means not available?

    Could it be possible that the entanglement does not require a silk like string to connect the two which a linear thinking, but instead it connect via correspondent information within the party/module, also like a computer software program, one module can call another module doesn’t matter where each module is stored in, or how small/big this software/database is?

    Normally all we need to know is the “location” of the module, or we call it IP, so could that be each of the connected or entangled information module also has it is I.P. address / unique resonance signature, so that will make “Teleportation” possible?

    1. From an amateur physicist standpoint, the “space-time is wildly fluctuating” quote sounds like a riff on the old virtual-particle theory. In the latter, a near-infinity of particle-pairs ‘poof’ out of nothingness and then annihilate with their opposite. The more massive the particles, the quicker they must ‘poof’ out again – subject to Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle. I could see a version of the quote referring to blinking in and out of space-time in some manner that conforms to a version of Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle. Perhaps, on some God-scale, our Timeline has ‘appeared’ and will annihilate with some ‘opposite’ Timeline within a HUP limit. There is an old Hindu myth about Vishnu winking-in and winking-out Realities. Could this be an anthropomorphized version of what is happening?

    1. To understand infinity; either in time, distance, or any measurement? to do thought experiments that never truly have a definitive answers? There are boundaries that don’t exist; yet must be crossed; to get… nowhere?
      This quantum world? is truly Alice in Wonderland spiraling evermore.. and landing ever nearer to Peter Pan in Never Never land.
      Must there be a definitive answer?
      What if we truly are in Twilight Zone, and the quantum signpost up ahead, is always going to be just within reach, just as Zeno said.

  4. “In the quantum world, whenever you look at a system, or measure it, the system changes. And in this case, unstable particles can never decay while they’re being measured (just like the proverbial watched kettle that will never boil), so the quantum Zeno effect creates a system that’s effectively frozen with a very high probability.”

    Interesting. This sounds like an underlying ‘justification’ for Morphogenetic Fields existing. Get something being-repeated enough, and you have the functional equivalent of measuring or observing over long periods of time. Perhaps, some pattern IS being ‘frozen’ into Reality…

    My belief is that the TPB (those who know of this effect) are using this to ‘engineer’ Reality. Endlessly-repeating commercials. Endlessly-repeating MSM news. 9/11 TV-watchers. Trump. Russia. Note that I am not talking about simple propaganda effects here; I am talking about micro-engineering Reality itself (or at least the probability of future happenings).

    In my humble opinion, throw those three articles together and we are looking-at engineering Timelines…

    1. This might also be WHY planet Earth – rather than being a mundane planet in a mundane solar system in an arm of a mundane galaxy – is a Nexus for the future. And therefore, being visited and fought-over for eons. When you have ‘gods’ that WANT to change Timelines, everybody notices…

    2. I have similar thoughts Goshawks. I suspect that there is a grand plan to make us look in certain directions, to ensure that we are ensnared in trivial, evil, and newtonian and anti-human, meaningless short lives, and that the developers of such grand plan are ensuring that our heads are permanently stuck in the sand. Maybe we’re being tested, and those that can reason their way out of this quagmire get the ultimate prize, and those that cannot, will spiritually die. If so, does information ever die or do our non-interesting souls go back into the ether and assist without focus with the morphic resonance?

  5. The sciences of late in especially in the West use theories like the bed of Procrustes. Either to expand or shrink their fantasies they pass off as scientific truths. Sub-space communications of Star Trek anyone.

  6. Recently I’ve been doing the Quantum Zeno Effect experiment on the perceived time for a kettle to come to a boil. Same place, same kettle, water at approximately the same temperature. The “watched” kettle seems slow, but when going into the room next door after turning on the kettle, it seems to boil in a very fast perceived time. We must experience this time sensation innumerable times every day, but without paying much attention to it. -While it is easy to rationalise the classical experience of “time flying” in pleasant circumstances and “time stopping” in the dentist’s chair, the “watched pot” experiment does not involve the pleasant/unpleasant dichotomy, Maybe after “getting the knack of it” you could, say, read, understand and retain a weighty tome and find that just a few minutes of “clock time” have gone by.

    1. “One of the curious things that happens when you work on people with tuning forks is what I call the ‘sound healing time warp.’ For reasons I don’t really understand, time passes very quickly when we are working with the tuning forks…This happens consistently with all (my) students of sound balancing–it is not uncommon to be shocked to discover that you have been working with someone for close to three hours when it felt like much less.
      “This must have something to do with the process of decreasing entropy in the system. By sweeping up the…photons in the (periphery of the human bio-) field and restoring them to the body, we are reversing the entropic process where stress had previously caused a breakdown in the order of the person. In syntropically (i. e., via negative entropy) restoring the order, we are, in a strange sort of way, turning back time…..”
      –Eileen Day McKusick, from her book “Tuning the Human Biofield: Healing with Vibrational Sound Therapy”

    2. Dana, do you think watches and time keeping machines have been deliberately invented to ensure humanity is consistently pinned to physical reality?

  7. Leo’s conjectures, first recognized back in the 1970’s:

    1. There are no constants in this universe.
    2. This universe is older, by a factor of many orders of magnitude, than the 14 billion or so commonly accepted by contemporary physics.

    After reading today’s high octane I’m feeling just a tad more pleased with these.

  8. It seems pretty obvious that that “huge density of vacuum energy in the universe” (i.e, the aether… nice that it only took 120 years or so for the midgets to acknowledge its existence) might account for that pesky 93% of the missing universe, no? Instead of that implausible Mystery Meat, err, I meant Darth Vader, uhm… Dark Matter. Even though they’ve had the likes of Steven Hawking, IV promoting its existence, I’m sure that dark matter is just as real as Hawking is.

    And is entanglement a duality or a multiplicity? Can three or more particles be entangled? Somehow it seems like it must be pairs, otherwise you could theoretically entangle everything, and then what? Checkmate. If only pairs, then what if these little aetherlits that are pulsating are actually linked (or entangled), like gates, to an antiverse which is slowly shrinking? I think you have to assume there’s a mirror to this.

    Oh, and I once actually lived Zeno’s paradox. No, I am not kidding and it was by far the most terrifying thing I’ve ever experienced in my life. Time literally began to repeat in smaller and smaller loops from a second or so on down until it briefly stopped, but I was fully conscious as it happened. It occurred just on the hour, so I could hear the same church bell ringing over and over as the time loops dwindled toward zero. I knew I was trapped in a paradox and so I kept tapping my heel as fast as I could to keep from having everything simply stop and becoming literally frozen in a singularity while being fully conscious, and then it broke as it hit zero and time once again flowed on.

    No, I wasn’t high, though I do have certain abilities at times. However, this just came from out of the blue one afternoon. I ponder the implications of that experience often, and don’t ever want to find myself there again.

    1. Before reading your comment I, too, was preparing to mention that “high density of vacuum energy” sounds a lot like “aether”. …

        1. The other day I glanced at my digital clock and it was 13:13; the next time I checked the time it was 14:14 (European hours). After that, I should have gone out and bought a lottery ticket but it slipped my mind.

  9. Observer/observed – 15 years ago I moved to a rural area with a large deer population. My husband would point one out and I still couldn’t see it. Now I see them all the time and if I were a hunter I could probably shoot it. The observer/observed has changed. Now let’s throw in ‘intent’ and it’s hunting season – and the deer have a 6th sense consciousness. Both party’s are aware; observer and observed. I think the vacuum is where the alchemy appears and any one of many outcomes can happen. I wonder what intent the researchers have in changing the timeline.

    1. I have heard it described that way, Sandygirl. Nature abhors a vacuum; the senseis and the rishis and the dervishes and the yogis seem to say that the point of emptying one’s mind is to fill the resulting vacuum with intent; or, to allow the vacuum to be filled by Universe. Filling the vacuum with intent, it seems, is for the purpose of knowingly participating in the process of “interdependently co-arising” with our environment. Simply dwelling in the state of no-thinking, without filling it with intent, appears to be for the purpose of allowing Universe to provide a “Eureka!” moment.
      But, what do I know? Every time I try to whirl like a dervish, instead of spinning faster and faster in one spot, I go careening off like some kind of Tasmanian devil. I still have to replace the boarded-up window from last time.

      1. My favorite whirling dervish, by far, is Rumi. “Out there, beyond ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing, there is a field. I will meet you there.”
        Last time I whirled, I was aiming for the field like I always do, but I went through the window, over the railing, and into the flower bed, instead.

      2. PtT, well said! An erudite ‘definition’ of the difference between shamans and saints. Duly copied-and-pasted. Thanks!

        1. Thank you, goshawks. You honor me with your kind words, but much more appreciated is how you inform and stretch my thinking with your comments here. You, sir, have done no less than to help make me a better man.
          Now, where the heck is Vomito?? I REALLY wanna hear what he has to say about the conceptual…uh, tallywacker…as a social construct.

        1. Phil, this blog is the first time I kinda get the physics part of it a little bit. BUT I understand it more when I see our bodies, our spirits, how we are the same physics of creation, Everything is interconnected. In stillness we tap into the vacuum, the force… that absorbs energy and also pushes it out. We all contribute and get back the Universe. I can see why tptb are scared of the people waking up, the more that wake up the faster it spreads.

        2. They don’t like us because we can out’think’ them. That’s probably why AI wants to piggy back into our consciousness, or merge with our collective mind to ensure we don’t go off tangents, thinking what we’re not supposed to think.

  10. “I can’t help but think of Plato and his “mathematicals”

    Things are starting to get very interesting in the Giza Community again!

  11. It would explain why Earth is always getting burned in the galactic gold market. Baron Rothschild will be pleased with this new development.

  12. As Robert M. Pirsig put it in “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values”…..the more you look, the more you see. So it appears, someone is trying to contain this phenomenon?

    Doctor Farrell: your articles are always informative and erudite. This one was hilarious, as well. I just got back from walking the dog. I have a crick in my neck because, the whole time, I was on the lookout for falling goats.

  13. How far are you willing to scale them? There are those who would attempt to become gods themselves, I’m willing to bet. They would be those same creatures with their shrunken prefrontal lobes, total lack of morals or conscience who insist on operating from the hidden recesses; for their actions can’t bear the light of day. Those very same blood sucking, child draining, vampire elite who have been plaguing the earth since the beginning. They exist in the ether just beyond the end of that twig.

    1. Let us all keep in mind that entrainment is a huge purple elephant in the room where the mainstream astronomers and astrophysicists (you know, the ones who think that gravity, and not electricity, is the dominant force in space; the ones who think black holes are verified phenomena, and not just a hypothetical mathematical construct) usually hang out. Most of them attempt to pointedly ignore this huge purple elephant. David Bohm had the courage to look this elephant right in the eye, and he suggested that it meant objective reality does not exist. (He must have seen the elephant wink.)
