Is it Magic or is it Quantum?

An Entangled Parable of Acausal Connections

Twins Fred and George enacting “magic” to enlighten us about quantum entanglement

One of the most surprising aspects of quantum entanglement is the possibility of access to shared information between widely separated particles, enabling them to coordinate their state parameters (for example spin or polarization states) over great distances. Bell’s inequality, proposed by (Northern) Irish physicist John Stewart Bell in 1964, offers a litmus test to…
