Entanglement

Mormon Philosophy & Theology. This word entanglement is one that I use for the system of the psychotherapist and the client – with a conscious reference to its use in physics. The iedea being that it is a system and any introduction of an investigation of the system will change it! From the New Scientist

If you thought that quantum entanglement – the weird effect that allows two particles to behave as one, no matter how far apart they are – is too subtle to affect your daily life, think again. The phenomenon could be responsible for something as significant as the mass of everyday objects, yourself included, and could finally explain why the fundamental particles of matter have the mass they do.

Sometimes, the interaction of two particles, say electrons, causes their individual properties, such as spin, to become “entangled”. If you then change the spin of one particle it will instantly affect the spin of the other, regardless of the distance between them.
