Advertisements I just got done watching this week's PBS NOVA episode, "Einstein's Quantum Riddle," and I must say that, even after watching the episode 1-1/2 times and focusing/not multi-tasking, I am as confused by quantum mechanics and quantum entanglement as I am about religion and the creation of life. (Perhaps they're one and the same?) Not having studied physics since high school a bunch of decades ago, all my understandings and assumptions of the atomic world, with its neat electron particles and orbits, have been thrown to the wind, with my mind trying to stretch to a different, almost magical context (I thought that this is what science was trying to answer and avoid) of things not being there but indeed being there, and somehow "communicating" and existing across time and universes. I guess that I'm in good stead: from the NOVA episode, Einstein couldn't see it, either. I feel like I need to check out a "quantum mechanics for dummies" comic book from the library. Time to watch an episode of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel."
