Entanglement: Physics, Mind and Worlds

with Emily Adlam, Jonathan Allday, Basil Hiley, José Latorre, Dean Radin, Vandana Shiva

Curated by Jonathan Allday

February 18 – March 5, 2023
9:00am PST | 12:00pm EST | 5:00pm GMT  |  6:00pm CET

6-two-hour sessions every Saturday and Sunday

All sessions are live and you will be sent the RECORDING.

Given the recently awarded 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics to Alain Aspect, John Clauser and Anton Zeilinger “for the experiments with entangled photons, establishing the violation of Bell inequalities and pioneering quantum information science”, the mysterious notion of entanglement has come back with renewed force not only to the Olympus of mainstream science, but also to the lives of laypeople, recapturing our imagination as to the fundamental interconnected nature of the cosmos.

In a spirit of celebration, this online series brings together world-experts to discuss what entanglement entails, from a theoretical perspective, along with the experiments that have confirmed “spooky action at a distance” and closed increasingly implausible loopholes that might provide another explanation.

The conversation will also address the impact of entanglement beyond physics, and its promise for technological applications in quantum computing.

We intend to cover in relative depth some of the following questions: What is entanglement? What experimental evidence is there for entanglement? Is entanglement the distinctive difference between classical and quantum physics? How does entanglement impact on conventional notions such as ‘part’ and ‘whole’? Does entanglement point to a different conception of space and time? How might entanglement impact on areas of conventional science – e.g., quantum biology, consciousness studies? Is entanglement anything more than a useful analogy in areas of less conventional science – e.g., parapsychology? Has entanglement been anticipated in the worldviews of other cultures? Does entanglement radically undermine the prevailing materialist western worldview?

As physicist David Bohm proposed, “the reason subatomic particles are able to remain in contact with one another regardless of the distance separating them is not because they are sending some sort of mysterious signal back and forth, but because their separateness is an illusion. . . . At some deeper level of reality such particles are not individual entities, but are actually extensions of the same fundamental something.”
