The theory of quantum mechanics predicts that two or more particles can become “entangled” so that even after they are separated in space, when an action is performed on one particle, the other particle responds immediately. Scientists still don’t know how the particles send these instantaneous messages to each other, but somehow, once they are entwined, they retain a fundamental connection.
It could be why couples who have been together for a long time seem to look and act alike. It’s kind of a romantic idea, I think. Maybe when you’ve fallen in love, it is because your particles have become entangled…
Or maybe the warm weather and sun have gone to my head today.
This is still one of my favorite photos, and one of my most popular on Flickr as well as DeviantART.
