This era, the likes of which have not been seen in our lifetime, stands to carve the last of our testaments on the planet, for Fermi's Paradox has caught us up. Money has us cornered and there is nowhere to run, save into its clutches or away from civilization, as a hunted animal must face its fate or disappear from its tormentors.
"Now a new revolution is on the verge of answering that question, based on insights from the other great physics surprise of the last century: quantum mechanics. Today’s revolution offers the potential for yet another rewrite of space-time’s résumé, with the bonus of perhaps explaining why quantum mechanics seems so weird." quantum mechanics seems so Read the full story where the world falls into a black hole.
Behind the man walking the invisible bridge you'll find more elucudation on entangled time. Fair enough, methinks, that spooky actions at a distance should prove as omnipotent as the Uncertainty Principle, waving from the rafters where none have gone before save those who've already crossed the great divide - colonists not remotely concerned with the Kardashev scale who've already made the jump to zero-point would know better than to interfere with the likes of us. We're still busy crossing the sea of Time as we know it, from life as we know it to something else, something more or something less, a classic case of relativity in juxtaposition.
Independence in the Universe is eloquently captured by this Royal Society article whose author has entangled the nature of non-locality with our relative position in spacetime. We're alone in our motion through systems of life, even if the fusion of quantum-mechanical states ensures we're all in this together. We have to work hard to get our own handle on our version of What Is with the tools at our disposal, reliant on science to hand us the subtle knives sharp and ready for use, as essential staff would serve the surgeon while he works, oblivious of the moral implications, on a detail salvaging more than the sum of the parts on which he operates. The collective seeks a positive outcome, as the surgeon seeks to save life, and there is no going back to the innocent oblivion from whence we came, there is only the certainty of entropy to insist we stay true to the forward track. I'll join you there - love you being here, for we are legion if there is only one of us.
