“In the beginning there were only probabilities. The universe could only come into existence if someone observed it. It does not matter that the observers turned up several billion years later. The universe exists because we are aware of it.” — Martin Rees

Quantum theory states that not only does an observer collapse the present but the choice to look collapses a past that agrees with that present. Far from intuitive, quantum physics theories give us an idea of a strange reality, one where time is not a constant flow in one direction. Entanglement, is about the impossibility of separateness. Quantum Theory is a love story we write for ourselves as we entangle with each other.
