The ancient Hindus taught of the “web of Indra”. That is that every point in the universe is connected to every other point like a vast web with pearls tied at every intersection of the web.
The Buddha likewise taught that everything was connected in an intricate fabric of existence like a garment of woven cloth. A very similar idea was also taught by the pre-socratic philosophers in ancient Greece but was lost until the last century when work in mathematics and in physics independently raised it again.
Now your skeptic would say this cannot be possible. Things which are distant from each other cannot be connected without some sort of physical tether.
Wrong. Introducing ”Quantum Interaction"
Two photons become “entangled” one must always be plus and the other minus. I take one to the moon. You keep the other one in your pocket. If I change mine from negative to positive yours will INSTANTANEOUSLY change to negative. Not just extremely fast, not even at the speed of light. INSTANTLY, no matter where you are in the universe.
