In 1982 a remarkable event took place. At the University of Paris a research team led by physicist Alain Aspect performed what may turn out to be one of the most important experiments of the 20th century.

Aspect and his team discovered that under certain circumstances subatomic particles such as electrons are able to instantaneously communicate with each other regardless of the distance separating them. It doesn’t matter whether they are 10 feet or 10 billion miles apart. Somehow each particle always seems to know what the other is doing.It is referred to as “entanglement” within quantum mechanics theory.

Erwin Schrödinger one of the developers of Quantum Mechanics states “it is one of the traits that causes an entire departure from our classical assumptions of thought.”

It gives us reason to reconsider our classical assumptions of thought in other fields of endeavor….an area of interest to me are psychological concepts of self and subconscious mind…and I wonder if it is possible that both our conscious and subconscious minds are deeply “entangled”with others that influence our life in ways in which we are not aware…Carl Jung suggest this possibility in his theories of “collective unconscious” and “synchronicity”without having any scientific evidence at that time to support his conclusions.

Another theory of quantum mechanics is the “Butterfly-Effect” described by Paul Erlich in using the example of “The fluttering of a butterfly’s wings can effect climate changes on the other side of the planet”….which makes me wonder if psychological thoughts I am experiencing can effect a mind on the other side of the planet…such new concepts can undermine our whole belief of who we are.

More importantly it suggest that an infinite intelligence is continuously moving us in relationship to everything else in the Universe…and the assumption we are a separate self under the control of our ego is nothing more than a fictitious myth and unnecessary for our life style…if this is true we may have found the answer to liberating our self from the ego and hence allows us to FLOW with the higher intelligence of the universe.
