Entanglement II. The ineffable (and often unreliable) Wikipedia has this to say about entanglement:
Quantum entanglement is a physical phenomenon that occurs when a group of particles are generated, interact, or share spatial proximity in a way such that the quantum state of each particle of the group cannot be described independently of the state of the others, including when the particles are separated by a large distance.
In this here example we can see two snakes indulging in a spot of said funky interacting, much to the stupefaction and even some degree of alarm of the local fauna. And these guys don’t shock easily, I can tell you.
So, if you decide to go ahead and avail yourselves to the new-found “freedom” of hugging (something I heartily recommend), stir clear of any quantum activity zones, just in case.
Have a spooky, long distance hug, a magnificent weekend and un po’ di mu’.
