The black-and-white photo above isn't much to look at. However, the ghostly, eye-like shapes illustrate a strange phenomenon that rattled Albert Einstein so much that he died disbelieving it could exist. The picture represents the first-ever photograph of quantum entanglement, or the "spooky" pairing of particles.

Entanglement is cool.

It is one of the "how and why" things that I wish I could live long enough to see it understood and explained.

For now, all we can do is show it exists, not how it works.

"Caution: May or may not contain live animal."

That's hilarious.

Horatio:
O day and night, but this is wondrous strange!

Hamlet:
And therefore as a stranger give it welcome.
There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

Hamlet Act 1, scene 5, 159–167

I never realized Hamlet discovered quantum entanglement, but it all makes sense now.

I think these particles aren't really separated at all - it just looks like that from our perspective.

In fact, we are probably all one (which makes all sex ------------).

The universe has to be a hall of mirrors.
