The most revolutionary discovery of quantum mechanics is the paradox of quantum nonlocality. This draws attention to the phenomenon known as quantum entanglement.
As a result, quantum mechanics violates the principle of locality. This principle states that changes in one physical system should have no immediate effect on another separated system.
Our “local” view of the world assumes phenomena are separated by time and space. Thus, no influence can travel faster than the speed of light.
Quantum nonlocality proves these assumptions are mistaken.
A principle of holistic interconnectedness exists operating at the quantum level. And this contradicts the local assumptions of classical physics.
At the quantum level, instantaneous actions can occur.
Science does not appear ready to equate nonlocality with the spiritual realm. However, the nonlocal reality that we live in tends to mimic the properties often associated with the spiritual.
Carl Jung developed an acausal understanding of synchronicity. His concept of synchronicity was inspired by quantum theory and through his association with the great physicist Wolfgang Pauli,
Science is an approach to knowledge based on causality. Causal explanations emphasize one thing affecting another through an exchange of energy, forces, or information.
In contrast, synchronicity involves acausal explanations with no identifiable governing forces or physical energy exchange.
With synchronicity, there appear no causal connections between inner and outer events. Instead, they are symbolic expressions of transformative meaning. Thus, they challenge fundamental axioms of science.
