Quantum Entanglement and Marriage
I like my post's title, makes absolutely no sense unless you read the post. LOL.
I have often discussed aspects on quantum physics on this blog. I happened upon a post by Quasimanga regarding quantum entanglement and I think he explained it well enough. He said the Chinese have a theory regarding soulmates, that they are destined to meet. That is a very human explanation for what happens.
When you split an atom certain particles will be seperated by vast distances (realtive to size). Some of these particles react in an way that cannot be understood, if you touch one, the other reacts in unison; but, they do it faster thant the speed of light. According to Einstein this is impossible, problem is that it happens and we have tested it, it happens a lot.
Now you don't have to be a scientist to understand what I just said and the scientists cannot explain it either. We have a limited number of possibilities for why this occurs. First choice is that they are not reacting to the same stimuli; but, are instead of the same nature and therefore doing the same thing at the same time. There is a number of problems with this primarilly because the environments are different for each particle and therefore they should be responding independently.
The second possibility is that all things are connected. This is the string theory. Problem with this one is that we cannot find any connection or evidence for such connections. Second problem is that it still cannot occur faster than the speed of light.
The third possibility is a modified string theory which states that there are alternate universes in which these same particles exist and that they are responding to something going on in the alternate univers. There is absolutely NO evidence or proof for this and that is because it cannot be proven unless we could see that alternate univers and prove it first.
Pick whichever answer you like. Oh, the fourth is the fractal universe theory. This is the concept that all we see in the real world is merely a projection of the subatomic and reality only exists on the subatomic level. No explanation for why it would project has been forth so I don't think it deserves to be called science.
My personal choice is that it is because God made things to have relationship and some things are part of one another on a level we cannot understand. I guess I like the Chinese theory of the red band connecting people. What if the Chinese were right, what if we can be destined to be somehow attached to another? How would that make you look at sex and marriage and life?
What if everyone on earth had a soulmate; but, they had to achieve a certain amount of seperateness to be ready to be with each other. When they were making the first nuclear bombs they used to "tickle the dragon's tail", they would move two blocks of uranium together and let them begin to chain react in order to know how much uranium was needed for the bomb. Some people died doing this little trick.
Lets get back to the question of marriage. If you knew that you had a soulmate, that everyone did; but, that you had to be ready to be together, would you wait? We are a very promiscuous society, would you wait? Would it effect how you chose how you lived your life?
Lets take it a little further. It is Saturday and I have done all of my chores so I am just listening to music and reading articles. By the way, do yo want me to start adding more pictures or keep it textual?
So lets say that you met your soulmate, seperated and came together again later, you were truly meant to be a couple. How would that effect your relationship? If you harmed one another you would have harmed a part of you. Clearly my ex was not my soulmate, so this is not about her, it is a question, a morality question.
In every relationship you negotiate compromise, how do you negotiate with your soulmate, do you just give them what they want? Perhaps the question is silly, perhaps because they are your soulmate you will be in total agreement; but, I don't buy that.
Now, if one has a soulmate, what does that make everyone else in the world? We are attracted to people on many levels; but, that doesn't mean everyone is qualified to be our soulmate or even mate. I don't have a quantum explanation for this except to say that not all particles experience the "spooky effect" of quantum entanglement.
One last question. If you got to choose to have a soulmate, to only have one person that you are perfect for and new it would mean waiting, would you want to have a soulmate? The alternative would be to live as we live.
