Paradox Series- Peekaboo Universe
By Ramana Annamraju MedBricks
In the world we live in, cause and effect are sacred. You get hurt first, and you feel the pain next but never be the case. The other way around is to feel the pain first and get hurt next. The maximum speed limit for light protects that sacred tenet. Quantum experiments proved beyond a doubt that there exists an instant connection between those entangled particles; however, apart they are. That seems to violate the laws of physics.
Two other lesser-known scientists, Russian American physicist Boris Podolsky and Israeli American physicist Nathan Rosen, joined hands with Albert Einstein threw a wrench at the idea of quantum entanglement. This spooky action at a distance, famously known as the EPR Paradox, bearing their names ( E-Einstein; P- Podolsky; N-Nathan)
EPR paradox claims these particles had a secret contract between them before their departure. The agreement is not yet discovered, When the particles are observed, they execute the previously agreed upon contract or agreement. There is no need to inform each other. The trio argued that there are no mystical influences between them. There is no need for communication; hence they are not violating the speed of light. It is the job of scientists to discover that secret pact—nothing more, nothing less. The scientific term for the secret contract is called "Hidden Variables".theory.
- The analogy is there are two hand gloves in two boxes; one belongs to the left hand, and naturally, the other one belongs to the right hand. But it is not as simple as that. , Quantum experiments proved, beyond doubt, until you open the box, the glove is both right-hand and left-hand same time. With the particles, it is a proven fact. Once you open the box, "NATURE" randomly picks left-hand or right-handed without any preference. We have no input. It is bizarre, but it is a fact. We humans do not have any prior knowledge of which hand "NATURE" picks. Einstein does not have an issue with the experimental reality. He had a severe objection to "NATURE" picking up randomly left or right hand when opening the box. He famously said to his friend Niels Bohr, "God does not play dice". Niels Bohr promptly came back with his own famous quip, " Einstein, Who are you to tell God, what to do?".This quantum debate went on for the next 50 years without any resolution. Albert Einstein passed away in 1955. But bad news came for Albert Einstein's EPR Paradox in 1964 from a relatively unknown physicist from Ireland.
