Unbelievable for Einstein, “Spooky Action at a Distance” Has Been Confirmed
A slight sensation creeps up the back of your neck, and you turn to see someone staring. You’re thinking of a friend the exact moment they call. An email from a loved one arrives just as you’re sent one off to them. A mother wakes in sudden dread, somehow knowing that her child a thousand miles away has just been in an accident.
Unbelievable? Whether you call them precognitions, telepathies, teleportations, clairvoyances, past lives, time travels, near-death experiences, or downright spooky perceptions – they’re difficult to explain but real for those who experience them. But once the psychic senses responsible can be identified they can be developed like other senses – with practice. When we learn to trust our intuitions, what might have been rejected as disconnected gut feelings that defy reason become right as rain.
Just as Albert Einstein spent a lifetime dismissing the concept that two electrons very far apart could be instantaneously influencing each other and stay energetically entangled, we often reject intuitions that stare us in the face. What doesn’t fit into our preconceived notions of real, or what science tells us just isn’t possible becomes dissonant, and is usually exiled to a trash bin of the unthinkable.
In 1935, Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen (known as EPR), tried reasoning with the proposition that energies linking electrons could possibly be traveling anywhere, through anything, and faster than light. Inconceivable for Einstein, he concluded that “God does not throw dice,” and labeled quantum entanglement as “Spooky Action at a Distance.” After all, energies traveling faster than light refuted his own definition of energy, E=mc2.
But recently, thanks to subatomic delvings of quantum physicists into intricate yet gargantuan activities of proteins we’ve learned that quantum energies could potentially provide the basis of human connectedness often called paranormal. Since 2015, physics has verifiable proof that energies – any energies, including energies from a thought, a feeling, or belief – can travel faster than light and entangle other energies, connecting living things at any distance. Is this sci-fi, from an unearthed episode of Star Trek?
Not at all. In 2015, electron spin energies theorized 80 years earlier were confirmed to be traveling faster than the speed of light. Like many of us experiencing perceptions in conflict with what we believe, Einstein had used a disqualifier, the word “spooky” to set aside what he could not believe. Applied to life sciences, quantum physics now shows that these properties of energy theorized in 1935, not only transmit and connect themselves instantly at any distance but can drive biological processes. Spin energies of electrons connect to other spin energies in living cells and systems, and in all kinds of ways. https://youtu.be/EGF34iPfPDY
The spin energies of the electrons in our 100 billion brain neurons (that’s a lot of spin energies) are continually emitting, connecting with, and influencing other energies. As we focus our thoughts, we entangle our attentions, changing not only the nature of our own energies but the nature of energies we connect with. The mere act of observation influences both observer and the observed.
“Nothing that is observed is unaffected by the observer. That statement, from science, holds an enormous and powerful insight. It means that everyone sees a different truth, because everyone is creating what they see, ” said Neale Donald Walsch. Using more sophisticated technologies in the future, quantum physics will be able to see even more, and in altogether different ways.
Reiki Doll for Long-Distance Healing
These days, Reiki therapists in Maui send “Long-Distance Healing” energies to treat clients with all manner of malady in New York. Recipients feel immediate relief. An off-duty nurse in Colorado, while feeding horses miles from the hospital gets a tingling in both elbows, a tingling she has learned to trust over time – a patient’s condition has just turned critical. She rushes back to the hospital to revive the patient then move them to Intensive Care. A tour guide in Drake Bay, Costa Rica, says that while above water he feels a rational fear of swimming with false killer whales. But as soon as he dives in among them, Spinner and Bottlenose dolphin, too, he feels an immediate welcoming sensation from signals they send. They could easily hurt him or worse, he says, but instead they fill the water with welcoming brain messages for him to relax, join in, and have some fun.
The Vibrations that Connect Us
Still, much of the scientific community still regards brain messaging, telepathic communications, and clairvoyance as “pseudoscience,” magical-thinking by-products of of more quantifiable measures like ”confirmation bias, expectancy bias, fraud, placebo effect, hallucination, self-delusion, sensory leakage, subjective validation, and wishful thinking.” Certainly, placebo effects are strong enough to change both perceptions and physiologies, and cases of fraudulent research are well-documented. In 1988, after studying research results from the last 130 years, the US National Research Council concluded, “The committee finds no scientific justification for the existence of parapsychological phenomena.”
Though scientific minds may have become more relaxed lately, the sending and receiving of brain messages can be relegated to “extra-sensory perceptions” (ESPs). But are it? Or, is this ability to send and receive long-distance brain messages not so extra-sensory, but one of many senses, like the unconscious senses of the immune system, senses we’re not generally aware of that are difficult to define and document, but important senses for survival. With so much else to process, fledgling capacities to transmit, receive, and connect without ever seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, or touching generally go undetected. Yet, the drive to inclusion, to coalesce, to be part of something larger and more complex than ourselves appears widespread and instinctual, built into our nature. And we are not alone.
Thousands of European Starlings change direction in unison, each bird moving with exquisite synchrony, orchestrated into one coordinated flock called a “murmuration.” “The group responds as one” nearly simultaneously, and “cannot be divided into independent subparts,” say researchers Andrea Cavagna and colleagues at the National Council of Research and the University of Rome. https://youtu.be/eakKfY5aHmY
Off the coast of Chile, a school of anchovies forms a “bait ball “ in milliseconds, swirling in collective harmony with “shoaling behavior” to confuse its predators. https://youtu.be/vKrVy4BaYps
Ants, at least 22,000 species of them, think collectively too, form colonies, and act as one superorganism. Not only defensive, but aggressive and predatory, ants can attack like Patton’s Fifth Army, quickly and precisely. Anatomically specialized ants with no eyes and small brains stay in step to perform selfless and synchronous duties. Maximally altruistic, they sacrifice their lives without a second thought.
Insects swarm when threatened; herding buffaloes and wildebeests stampede; turtle eggs hatch in unison; even stink bug eggs synchronize their entry into the world.
Plants, fungi, amoebas, bacteria, in fact, all living cells, molecules, and atoms adhere, coalesce, congregate, and often act as synergistic whole. Molecules of water attract each other to produce surface tension just as atoms of mercury coalesce into larger masses of atoms. https://youtu.be/Noqd5fvY0i0
Peggy Hill, behavioral ecologist and author of “Vibrational Communication in Animals,” shows that, in addition to visual, auditory, and chemical signaling systems, animals communicate via subtle forms of communication collectively known as “vibrational energies.”
“In many ways, human beings behave like flocks of birds or schools of fish,” says Nicholas Christakis, Harvard sociologist and co-author of “Connected: The Surprising Power of Our Social Networks and How They Shape Our Lives.” Once 5% of a large group changes direction the remainder often follows suit, whether in soccer stadiums, political conventions, or on social media.
People walking on sidewalks in cities around the world quickly adopt the walking speed of that particular place, so much so that each major city can be identified by its own “Signature Walking Speed”…

Certainly, there is a part of us that strives to congregate, stay in step, synchronize our behaviors and thoughts, and conform to our group. What drives this togetherness? Aren’t we, as creatures of free-will, also receptive to group telepathy? Don’t the vibrational energies of our group sometimes lead groups, tribes, and nations into ravaging genocides, behaviors that an isolated individual of that group would consider vastly unethical? But vibrational energies of cohesion can also inspire us, as teams and sometimes nations, to achieve what we as individuals ever thought possible.
“From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know,” said Albert Einstein, “that we are here for the sake of each other – above all for those upon whose smile and well-being our own happiness depends, and also for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy.”
Vibrational Energies and Quantum Teleportation
If “We are here for the sake of each other,” as Einstein proposed (and Facebook may have verified?), and if we as individual human beings stay naturally linked to one another as a collective and social whole, how do we sustain that link – with as many as 7.7 billion other sentient beings? When we’re far apart? Without cell phones and FaceTime?
The answer, at least for subatomic particles like electrons, concluded Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen (EPR) in 1935, must be the forces of “Quantum Entanglement,” and “Spooky Action at a Distance.” Any entangled linking of one electron with another supposed that the state of one electron influences or determines the state of another electron at any distance. This mysterious and instantaneous transfer of quantum information through space was named quantum teleportation, another part of that theory Einstein could not abide.
By 1964, John Bell had provided mathematical proof, however, with equations showing that electrons do become “entangled” with one another, do influence one another over great distances, and do move faster than the speed of light. An electron circling a random atom in Key West, for example, could maintain an entangled relationship with an electron circling an atom in London, or on the planet Pluto. Vibrational energies are connecting distant electrons, sending energy from one place to another almost immediately. With quantum energies, “all possible things possibly happen,” and “everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real. If quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet.” – Niels Bohr
For decades that followed, physical proof of quantum entanglement remained elusive while conjecture took quantum leaps forward. Quantum energies might be coalescing to form thoughts? Creating brain messages? And instantaneously connecting the flight of birds during murmurations? Could countless numbers of potential quantum entanglements act in synchrony, and be broadcast by the 100 billion neurons of the human brain? As transmitted thought? Could unseen cohesive forces be coalescing to create telepathies, groupthink, memes… or love?
Quantum Physicists Ronald Hanson of Delft University Netherlands and Krister Shalm at the University of Colorado set up a physical experiment that proved the 1964 equations of John Bell. In 2015, they showed conclusively that subatomic particles in one place do travel faster than the speed of light and do influence, and do entangle subatomic energies far, far away. They showed that energy does travel almost instantly, and conceivably – anywhere in the universe.
How Can Thoughts Travel Instantly, Precisely, and Effectively?
“There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” – Hamlet, 1601
Studying the fuzzy influences of quantum mechanics in photosynthesis, respiration, bird navigation, enzymes, and even the flow of thought, Professors Johnjoe McFadden and Jim Al-Khalili at the University of Surrey are leading the way through wide and uncharted straits, between the vibrational spins of electrons and life itself. A range of biological functions, they discovered, that possibly include the transmission of thoughts and feelings rely upon the counterintuitive energies of 1.) quantum entanglements, 2.) quantum coherence (the cooperation of subatomic particles) and, 3.) quantum tunnelling (the passage of subatomic particles through any and all physical barriers, as in radioactivity) . How quantum energies become distilled, packaged, and transmitted as thought, however, passing through solid structures, mountains, galaxies, anything, and across any distance to become entangled with other thoughts – remains a mystery. ttps://youtu.be/_qgSz1UmcBM
Meanwhile, as physicists at at the Universities of Delft and Surrey were studying applications of quantum mechanics within biological systems, Thomas Heimburg and Andrew D. Jackson, biophysicists at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen were studying the mechanical nature of the nerve impulse itself. Nervous impulses could travel both ways along the axon, they found – contrary to the Hodgkin-Huxley model of one-way axon depolarization proposed in 1952. Acting like shock or sound waves, impulses previously known as “action potentials” could also be called “soliton waves,” due to their wavelike properties. Heimburg believes that the widely accepted Hodgkin-Huxley Model of rapidly influxing of sodium ions rushing through ions channels causing a one-way electrical wave of depolarization is the result of, not the cause of, the mechanical soliton wave. According to Heimburg and Jackson, the real impulse, moving along the the nerve cell membrane at 30 – 100 meters/sec is generated by a rapid phase transition of fluid lipids in the cell membrane to liquid crystalline lipids, then back again. More like sound waves than electrical waves, “soliton” waves travel in arcs, producing “interference” with multitudes of other wave arcs.
(“In physics, interference is a phenomenon in which two waves superpose to form a resultant wave of greater, lower, or the same amplitude. Interference usually refers to the interaction of waves that are correlated or coherent with each other, either because they come from the same source or because they have the same or nearly the same frequency.” -Wikipedia)
“The electrical signal is thus not based on an electric current but is caused by a mechanical force,” says Heimburg. https://www.pnas.org/content/102/28/9790
In 2014, Matthias Schneider, a biophysicist at the Technical University of Dortmund, demonstrated that mechanical and voltage changes previously shown to be part of the same pulse were triggered by distinct thresholds of all-or-nothing mechanical shocks. Neuroscientists like Simon Laughlin at the University of Cambridge, who have worked with electrical impulses, nerve networks, and ions channels for decades, tend to be more circumspect. Nerve impulses might well have a dual nature, Laughlin believes, showing both mechanical and electrical properties. Vibrational energies might sometimes take the lead to produce thresholds that generate impulses, and sometimes vice versa, an electrical impulse might produce a mechanical wave. Couldn’t the practice of focus and will produce vibrational energies with strength enough to entangle energies in other minds and other events at great distance?
In “The Biology of Beliefs,” Bruce Lipton presents evidence at the cellular levels that shows the power of beliefs to affect real world change. “Soliton waves,” mechanical impulses, traveling along the lipid bi-layer of the nerve cell membrane induce a concurrent depolarization that also affects an immediate neurochemical response at the ends of each axon, the synapse. Anesthesia, however, shuts down nervous impulses, not by affecting ion channels, or depolarization, or neurochemistry but by preventing the mechanical pulse along nerve axons. Anesthesia can also prevent consciousness. Without the mechanical generation of energy through wave propagation along nerve axons we have no thought, no quantum connection to the world, no memory being encoded, no normal stamping of time upon our memories, and thus, no basis of existence.
Describing what he considered the quantum basis of existence in his 1944 book, “What is Life,” Nobel physicist Erwin Schrodinger said, “We must be prepared to find a new type of physical law prevailing in it.” Twenty years later, theoretical physicist and Nobel-winner Richard Feynman introduced Quantum Physics to Biology with, “Everything that living things do can be understood in terms of the wigglings and jigglings of atoms.” These wigglings and jigglings and vibrational energies inherent to all matter and thwarted by anesthesia, bring atoms together, then more atoms together in new combinations, striving all the while toward completion of the more “organized, self-sustaining complexity” we call life. It can be no different for each of us, as the vibrational energies of our thoughts strive to connect distant systems within our bodies as well as to others around us, to inform every level of our internal and external societies.
A better understanding of how soliton mechanical waves continuously ripple through the brain creating interference patterns with incoming vibrational electron energies (“spooky actions at a distance”) – might explain explain self-awareness, collective consciousness, and telepathy. We can only imagine the waves of thought and energy emanating from get-togethers aptly described as “brainstorming.” Imagining too, what has been called the greatest meeting of minds ever assembled, the October 1927 Fifth Solvay International Conference, for example. With 17 Nobel Prize winners in attendance their synergy in sharing ideas or talking idly about the weather seemed to combine with great effect. Collectively, this group opened a panorama of new worlds in physics, chemistry, and beyond, introducing one groundbreaking theory after another. Even today, their thoughts reverberate in wide arcs around the world, through all realms of science. And faster than light? Maybe a collaboration of neuroscience and physics will tell us soon.
Each of us harbors similar powers of thought, that while they may not compel us to solve equations in quantum physics or steer the course of science, such powers do connect us with minds around us, even those 5000 miles away.*
Like waves lapping at distant shores these energies can spread in wide arcs undeterred by distance. By radiating vibrational energies of kindness, compassion, and good-will biophysicists tell us that we each create a world around us, as we transmit our most fervent thoughts, prayers, wishes, memes, dreams, loves, and feelings. Across the table or across the ocean we connect with others every moment, consciously or unconsciously, without ever speaking, hearing, or seeing. Whenever and wherever we choose, we entangle our thoughts with others at great distance, and maybe, throughout the universe! That’s not science fiction, it’s just quantum physics.
