For more than fifty years now quantum physicists have been studying the behavior of the tiniest particles that make up our universe. They have produced and rejected countless theories of how these sub-atomic particles like neutrons and quarks operate. One of the most incomprehensible actions they have observed is the seeming influence of one electronís spin on the action of another electron ten billion light-years away: yet they know about each other in a split-second ! Einstein called this "spooky action at a distance" and rejected its possibility in this universe. Since then physicists like Bell have shown it to be true, and for years scientists have tried to reconcile this fact with relativity.
