How Einstein Revealed the Universe's Strange "Nonlocality" Our sense of the universe as an orderly expanse where events happen in absolute locations is an illusion By George Musser | Oct 20, 2015 *Edward Kinsella III* In Brief - In everyday life, distance and location are mundane absolutes. Yet physics now suggests that at the most fundamental level, the universe is nonlocal—there is no such thing as place or distance. - Initially Isaac Newton's conception of gravity seemed to imply the phenomenon of nonlocality because the attractive force between masses appear... mais »
