Are All Things Truly One? - Astounding Scientific Evidence Suggests that Separation May Be an Illusion

"Ek Onkar..." This ancient Sikh and Hindu principle is foundational to both of these ancient faiths. The literal translation of this statement varies between these systems of belief, ranging from, "One Supreme Reality," to "God is One," and "The Universe is One." In general, however, the idea is the same throughout these belief systems.

In modern terms, this principle may take on a number of forms. We might say that all things are connected, or that everything has a central point of origin, but perhaps the most meaningful version of this statement is, "There is only one of us here."

These principles are ancient in origin. However, they are not at all isolated to ancient religious and philosophical paradigms. This principle of universal oneness also has a way of manifesting in modern science. However, in order to see the principle within the world science, a bit of digging is required.

Let's begin the discussion in the arena of quantum physics. The following article comes to us from the website CNet, and delves into the enigmatic principle known as quantum entanglement.

Physicists Prove Einstein's 'Spooky' Quantum Entanglement

Multiple research teams claim to have conclusively demonstrated quantum entanglement, which had been disdainfully dubbed "spooky action at a distance" by Albert Einstein.

Few things in science get crazier than quantum mechanics, with related theories sometimes sounding more like paranormal activity than physics. So when such theories gain experimental proof it's a big day for physicists.

Quantum entanglement is a curious phenomenon that occurs when two particles remain connected, even over large distances, in such a way that actions performed on one particle have an effect on the other. For instance, one particle might be spun in a clockwise direction. The result on the second particle would be an equal anti-clockwise spin.

Three different research papers claim to have closed loopholes in 50-year-old experiments that demonstrate quantum entanglement, proving its existence more definitively than ever before.

"Things get really interesting when two electrons become entangled," said Ronald Hanson from the University of Delft. "They are perfectly correlated, when you observe one, the other one will always be opposite. That effect is instantaneous, even if the other electron is in a rocket at the other end of the galaxy."

Albert Einstein, Boris Podolsky and Nathan Rosen described this in a 1935 paper, concluding that either single-particle quantum entanglement was impossible, or that the quantum-mechanical definition of physical reality still needed some work.

In 1964, physicist John Bell proposed that quantum entanglement could be demonstrated by separating the particles at a great enough distance that any correlating effect on both particles could not possibly be caused by local environmental factors. These were called the Bell Test experiments.

However, the Bell Test experiments had some significant loopholes. The biggest is the "fair sampling" loophole, where the sampled particles are not representative of all entangled particles. Second is the "communication" or "locality" loophole, where the particles could be communicating via some hidden means at light-speed. Thirdly, the "free choice" loophole occurs when the orientation of the particle detectors are not chosen freely or randomly. That lack of free choice could explain any observed correlations.

It is these three loopholes that University of Delft researchers, led by Hanson, US National Institute of Standards and Technology researchers, led by Krister Shalm, and the University of Vienna researchers, led by Anton Zeilinger, claim to have closed.

Hanson and his team used a pair of diamonds with a gap in each diamond's atomic matrix, which trapped a single electron. The diamonds were placed 1.3 kilometres apart. The team then randomly measured one of two properties. If the particles are entangled, they would correlate in a way that cannot be explained by hidden variables.

"The large distance between our detectors ensures that neither the detectors, nor the electrons can exchange information within the time it takes to do the measurement, and so closes the locality loophole," explained lead author PhD student Bas Hensen. "We also close the [fair sampling] loophole, because in this experiment we measure all our entangled pairs." The team's research was published in Nature.

The University of Vienna's experiment, published in PNAS, separated the particles even farther. Using a massive detector between the Canary Islands of La Palma and Tenerife, it separated the particles by 143 kilometres. This allowed the locality loophole to be closed with even greater certainty. They closed the free choice loophole with a random-number generator.

NIST claims that its results, submitted to the journal Physical Review Letters, are even more definitive. A photon source was placed in one room and two detectors in two others, all three points over 100 metres apart.

The source creates and sends a pair of photons via fibre-optic cable to the two detectors. A random number generator then chooses one of two settings for the detector. If the particle's spin matches the detector settings, the detector picks it up with over 90 percent accuracy.

Use of the random number generator closed the free choice loophole, while the system's accuracy closed the fair sampling loophole. The experiment's efficiency closed the locality loophole.

The team calculated that the chance of locality causing their measurements was only 1 in 170 million.

Upon reading the above article, what can we learn? We might consider the act of two quantum particles interacting in such a way that they exchange energy and wind up entangling themselves at the quantum level. But what is actually happening in this process?

What might we discover when we move beyond the scientific enigma which challenges modern quantum physicists?
When we see two completely different particles behaving in exactly the same way at the same time regardless of the distance between them, there are a number of possibilities we might consider. One is that at some level, physical contact between these particles has caused the seemingly supernatural entanglement between them. Another possibility is that the interaction of these particles is not actual. It may be illusory or a fluke of some kind. However, this seems unlikely, considering the multiple scientific confirmations which the principle has received.

There is another possibility to examine with regard to this phenomenon of quantum entanglement. When we consider the principle known as the observer effect, we might find the answer we are looking for.

Merging Principles

What is it that causes two particles to quantumly entangle and to essentially become one from their moment of contact onward? What if we were to suppose that between the moment prior to entanglement and the moments afterward, there was actually no change? What if the two particles were already entangled prior to their apparent point of contact, that it was not the contact that joined them, but that the nature of the universe itself is one of fundamental connection?

Simply put, it may be that the principle of quantum entanglement is guided and essentially caused by the observer effect. In other words, everything within the universe may already be connected, and the contact which is believed to cause entanglement may not be needed in order for the energetic connection to be established. Rather, our simple observation of the interaction may allow us to experience the ever-present reality of the foundational unity between all that is.

To put it another way, the universe may be quantumly entangled with itself by default, but we cannot see the fact until we choose to. This is where the phenomenon of the observer effect comes into play.

In past articles, the observer effect has been described as a tendency for the quantum world to physically change simply by being observed. When a person or a recording device is used to observe/record the well-known slit experiment, the electrons involved will behave in a completely different way than when they are not being observed. The results of these experiments have been astonishingly consistent in proving that the universe does, in fact, respond to observation.

It may be that the phenomenon of the observer effect requires us to acknowledge the universe as it truly is before we can actually experience it as such. This may actually help to prove the spiritual principle of free will, in that an individual is able to have any experience they wish as long as they so choose.

In truth, it may be that the reality the person wants to see is all around them, but it is only after the person chooses to that they are able to see those desires fulfilled. Prior to that point, the individual may have no idea of the reality that awaits their choice of acknowledgment.

In this way, it seems that the ancient teachings of Sikhism and Hinduism actually hold true within cutting-edge scientific theory and development. This is one of many principles which suggest that our choices determine our reality.

Belief and Sight

We have heard of the principle many times, and yet far too often this principle is stated in reverse. In short, it is not seeing that brings believing. Rather, it is belief itself that brings new and untold realities into our conscious awareness.

Anytime we observe the world or the universe around us, it may be our beliefs that determine our experience. It may be that at some level, we choose to see things in a certain way until we choose something different.

When a scientist sees two quantum particles behaving as one, it could be that the scientist is making an internal (and yet unconscious) choice to see the universe from a higher, more enlightened vantage point. Prior to the experiment, they may simply believe what their eyes have told them thus far—that the space between apparent objects is real and indisputable, but afterward, something within them changes allowing them to acknowledge the the underlying relationship between all matter.

Oneness Among People

This principle can hold true in relationships as well. There are countless types of interactions that two or more people can have. These interactions can be relatively peaceful, turbulent, or everything in between, but in general, the possibilities are endless.

When two people have a good connection, the interaction can be particularly fulfilling—allowing both parties to become better people overall and even benefiting their other relationships in various ways. In short, one healthy and balanced friendship can allow the growth and prosperity of multiple friendships.

This situation of friendship is much like that of quantum entanglement. Both parties appeared to be separate beforehand, but as they bond, the connection between them becomes clearer. In this way, our good friends and fulfilling relationships may be windows into the reality of our fundamental connection between ourselves, humanity, and all that is.
