See for yourself.

"Quantum entanglement is a phenomenon in which the quantum states of two or more objects are linked together so that one object can no longer be adequately described without full mention of its counterpart — even though the individual objects may be spatially separated."

I wonder if this is what love is like.

I enjoy that description. I can't say that I have ever felt that connected (other than family), except for one person in my life. Could that person be my "soul-mate" although he chose to marry someone else? Hmmmm!

I read something somewhere comparing some "pairs" to "dual star systems." One such pair was Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan.

But I think that no matter how "entangled" one becomes, there is always that which is separate. Otherwise it becomes oppressive, obsessive, and suffocating. To make someone the center of your universe, is to put too much weight on that person. Too much quantum entanglement gets knotty.

United in love, but unique in person. A couple may share a last name, but they still have first names. ;-)

I agree, Don (and I knew someone would mention the possible oppressiveness of such a state, lol).

I think under the right conditions and with the right person, two really can become one. But, I'm probably being too romantic about it.

I read an article recently where the writer described an elderly couple that literally died within 24 hours of each other as

"two lights lit from the same match."
