In a milestone research, Dutch physicians revealed that they have performed a test that they say it shows one of the essential concepts of quantum theory, that things separated by extremely long distances can immediately have an impact on each other’s actions. The result is another strike to one of the fundamental theories in conventional physics, called “locality”. This principle states says that objects are affected only by their immediate environment. The new research, released this week in the scientific publications, gives further support to a concept that Einstein popularly refused to take into consideration. He affirmed that quantum physics required a spooky action over long distances and refuted the idea that nature could act in such an unusual and obviously unique way.
In particular, the famous physician criticized the concept that individual particles can be “entangled” at a level where observing one of them would immediately have an impact on the other, no matter the distance between them. Einstein was greatly disappointed with the questions presented by quantum physics and described the effects of these concepts as being similar to God playing with nature. Since the middle on the 20th century, a sequence of accurate tests by scientists are progressively eliminating such questions (alternative theories that are generally known as loopholes) that a pair of formerly entangles atoms, even when at a distance of a galaxy, could immediately connect through unknown means of communication. This is why even the brightest scientists had problems understanding and accepting its unusual explanations about reality seen at a subatomic scale.
The new research, performed by a team of Dutch experts helped by researchers from other European countries, is the most powerful proof yet to describe essential statements in quantum physics. Such concepts present a strange universe made from subatomic particles and down there matter is not shown until it is scientifically observed and time can flow in reverse, besides going in forward fashion. This experiment takes place in an incredible environment, compared to what we are used to perceive in our current reality. According to the latest theories in quantum physics, subatomic particles take their characteristic form only after they are observed or measured with specific device. Until that precise moment, these particles will exist at the same time in any place, even in simultaneous locations in the universe. After subatomic particles are measured, they enter into our own reality as we know it, and start existing in just one place.
