In the book “Provocative Cosmology – Unification”, a phenomenon whereby all matter within the universe is connected is both discussed and explained. This is what Quantum Physicist refer to when they use the term “Entanglement”.
This short animation featuring Dr Quantum, describes the phenomenon in simplistic terms for educational purposes. It is an excerpt from the film: “What the Bleep Do We Know!?: Down The Rabbit Hole”, it is reproduced for educational purposes.
Basically, everything in the universe is connected – this only became apparent to scientists after discoveries were made in the later branch, Quantum Mechanics. Quantum Mechanics is providing the link between science and metaphysics, although many in the scientific world would not wish to accept that statement.
Scientists seem to have forgotten that they evolved from the meta physicists and seers of the past. They were the forward thinkers who investigated deeper meaning and cause to all things worldly. Perhaps it is now time the the two seemingly disparate fields are once more unified; which will be inevitable over time.
