The Physics of Tao
You may not be familiar with Bell’s Theorem, but you out to be!
A theorem goes beyond a theory, in that it is provable. What has been proven, in this case, is what is known as—deceptively understated—entanglement.
Less than fifty years ago, physicist John Bell proposed an experiment which has subsequently been performed, then reconfirmed several times.
A simplified analogous depiction: An atom, in decay, emits pairs of particles. They will be of a polarization opposite to one another, and will be expelled to each side, beyond physical contact with each other. If the subatomic particle ejected to the right was polarized as positive (for example), you could zap it electronically midflight and switch its polarity to negative.
But by a construct of physical nature, such paired particles are required to exist in an oppositional polarity. The abrupt switch in polarity of the right-hand particle from positive to negative will register a startling observation in your monitoring of the flight of the left-hand particle.
The polarity of the left-hand particle will spontaneously and instantly switch orientation (in this case, from negative to positive), in accordance with the effected switch in polarity of the right-hand particle.
How can one particle be apprised of an instantaneous change in the other, when both are zooming away from any spatial link between them?
In our sector of the universe, there is an established physical principle, that not anything can be propagated through space at faster than the speed of light. Yet, when experiments have been performed on particles separated a decisive distance in space, the determination is that this “phase change” is coordinated simultaneously, and cannot be a communicated message between particles—even at the speed of light.
The most apparent explanation is that the subatomic particles (which, of course, all matter is composed of—including you) exist in, and are inseparable from, a field or background of unlimited or absolute connectedness. Subsequent experiments are demonstrating that this interconnectedness pertains to particles of increasingly greater number; and in evolving size, even beyond that of an atom. In physics today, entanglement is discovered to be an operative reality in a widening panorama of phenomenon.
Entanglement is a physicist’s label for interconnectedness; and the latter is a synonym for oneness. Entanglement is a proven fact. Anyone can continue to argue about the reality of oneness or undeniable inseparability: “That’s just a theory!” But know, for yourself, that it is the absence of oneness (perceived as duality) that is now nothing more than a theory.
