Researchers have recently proven that a quality of the unseen quantum world called entanglement can happen also at the microscopic level (i.e. the size of stuff in the regular world).
Entanglement is really strange. What happens is that two particles can get mated (how that happens is a bit of a mystery), and then communicate with one another not just faster than the speed if light, but instantaneously. This is a really, really big mystery, because it violates a few cardinal laws of physics: nothing can travel faster than the speed of light, at which point an object's mass should become infinite. And since light itself has a speed, being instantaneous is something that just doesn't happen in Einstein's relative universe.
There's some explanation of why such strangeness is possible, as per the math. But there's absolutely no answer for how. None.
It helps that most activity at the quantum level is really weird. It turns out that everything there doesn't really exist at all, per se, but rather hovers in a state on indeterminacy, only collapsing into something observable when somebody observes it. Observation is a core quality of what reality is made of, according to quantum physics. Let's not even get started on the multiple dimensions...
Only now, scientists have reported in Nature that they've entangled pairs of beryllium and magnesium ions, and they've exhibited the same qualities of entanglement. This means that the real world is as strange as the quantum one.
I'd say we've seen it already in politics and business for a while already.
The Democrats and Republicans are entangled, aren't they? One of the qualities of entanglement is that objects are the opposite of one another (one particle spins left, so the other always spins right). Coke and Pepsi were entangled for many years, so just as one brand would announce some starlet spokesdrinker, the other had a competing celeb ready to announce, too. And, just for kicks, isn’t our experience of Internet Search the macro version of that observation thing I mentioned earlier? I think we invent reality from the cloud with our choice of search terms.
Maybe the bigger observation from this entanglement research is that there are really strange forces going on, and that seeing them -- and even describing them with some detail and reliability -- doesn't mean that we understand what's going on.
