In the past few years scientists have conducted experiments that show that two “entangled,” subatomic particles can communicate almost instantaneously, even if they are separated by huge distances. They have called this phenomenon, “spooky action at a distance.”
This communication between two such entangled particles has been measured by researchers at University of Geneva in Switzerland to be at least 10,000 times the speed of light. What makes this “spooky” (Albert Einstein, who believed exceeding the speed of light was impossible, called it “spooky action”) is that there is no physical link whatsoever between the two particles — no waves, no electrons, no particles pass between them.
This has led scientists to believe that spooky action may be controlled by something existing beyond conventional spacetime. In other words, there is now scientific evidence for the existence of nonmaterial reality.
This quote from renowned scientist and founding director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, Robert Jastrow, now seems even more appropriate: “Astronomers now find they have painted themselves into a corner because they have proven, by their own methods, that the world began abruptly in an act of creation to which you can trace the seeds of every star, every planet, every living thing in this cosmos and on the earth. And they have found that all this happened as a product of forces they cannot hope to discover. That there are what I or anyone would call supernatural forces at work, is now, I think, a scientifically proven fact.”
The discovery of spooky action now adds even more proof that supernatural forces are at work in the physical world. It seems that science is close to discovering the spiritual reality that surrounds us.
Here’s another quotation from Robert Jastrow: “Science has proved that the universe exploded into being at a certain moment. It asks: ‘What cause produced this effect? Who or what put the matter or energy into the universe?’ And science cannot answer these questions. For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountain of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.”
