Non-locality, the phenomenon Einstein famously dubbed "spooky action at a distance", is a proven reality for particles. For people, there's no such research. Which is a bit of a shame, and something perhaps to be worked on soon, for it seems that when you believe something, its reality becomes that much more, well, realistic.
When my quantum quest was in its early stages at the onset of the Millennium, I knew non-locality existed as a quantum phenomenon. What was missing, at the time, was personal experience of it. Then in 2015, personal experience arrived in droves. My world was filled with communicative instances that can only be explained by non-locality. Without detailing those experiences here (you can find enough reference on the other Quantumology site), the point would be that I'm not alone. Many millions of other people will have been experiencing similar things, just as millions of other people were inexplicably waking up to "Quantum" implications just before the turn of the century.
The only barrier to this bridge being built is attitude. At the Paris Cosmology Colloquium in 2012, I approached the problem of Standard Model reversion to infinity in the dinner queue, where Hector de Vega refused to answer it, saying, "Different science, different science," subsequently moving swiftly down the line to join more intelligent members of his party. The lady standing next to me vindicated my questionable IQ by saying she thought it was a pretty good question, and George Smoot deigned to afford ten minutes of his time to discussing the presence of neutrinos in the early Universe with me, but aside from these two positive interactions, my time at the conference was spent in virtual isolation. Looking for a link today, it appears the 2015 Colloquium was in Hector's honour, indicating he has passed into other dimensions, where the science he studied over his lifetime surely takes a different form. My experiences since then, at Lambda and most recently at NNN17, demonstrate a growing warmth towards the unknown, and a freshly open mindset cannot help but create a wellspring for new, innovative forms of experimentation.
Whether your own experience causes you to question this paradox or not, you have doubtless had experiences of an inexplicable nature. If you haven't, you can safely place yourself next to the nearest positivist and share the denial of evidence which refuses to present itself, along with an explanatory guidebook. While esoteric experiences continue to be shared by ever-increasing numbers of people in increasingly diverse ways, the tide is bound to sweep a turn in favour of ground breaking exploration, and we are part of that swell, of the building tsunami waiting to hit the small town of Traditionalism - we are part of something we can't explain, but the thing we are part of is part of the Universe, and it has to be said that the bigger picture demonstrates the truth of its own diversity, even if the devil is inevitably in the detail.
When you feel connected with someone, or you sense a direction that feels right to take, or you're partaking in a game show that requires of you to account for gut instinct in answering a question you don't know, just trust. That's all we can do right now, it's all we may ever be able to do for this lifetime, despite hopes (mine or anyone else's) that the quantum conundrum of how subatomic mechanics relates to us will be revealed while we are still here in this dimension to appreciate the revelation. In trusting, we forge a link to that part of the Universe wanting to divulge this information, and we have a duty to protect it against the ravages of positivists who will insist on its inaccuracy until such time as evidence secures a reason to prove otherwise. As has happened with many scientific suggestions throughout the eons of time.
