Have you ever met someone and felt as though you had met them before; another time, another place? Is there any way to prove our connectedness? These are some of the thoughts that are explored in Entanglement, a novel by Gregg Braden and Lynn Lauber in A Tales of Everyday Magic Series by Hay House.
This short tale was a pleasure to read. It serves as a great introduction to Greg Braden's teachings on quatum physics and the theory of quantum entanglement. "Quantum entanglement suggests that once particles are connected, they remain connected on an energetic level, even when they are physically separated from one another..." This theory is illustrated by the central story of twin brothers, Charlie and Jack, who couldn't be more different and yet shared an extraordinary connection. Even though their distinct journeys take them about 8,000 miles apart, their connection remains. They are able to sense what each other is feeling and one brother has visions of what the other is experiencing.
A physics teacher encounters one of the brothers and together they explore the science behind the brothers' connection as well as the principle of universal oneness. "We're not separate objects floating around in empty space, but part of one undulating, pulsating, multidimensional uni-being organism...all vibrating together at varying frequencies, transmitting, absorbing, digesting, reflecting, radiating light and energy, endlessly held together by this invisible yet omnipresent force of consciousness."
As an aside, there is a physics experiment in the first chapter that I clearly needed to be reminded of. What happens when you add cold chicken stock to really hot glassware? Yes, it shatters. If only I had started this book one day earlier. Then again, some lessons are meant to be experienced.
This book reveals that spiritual teachings can be learned through a good story just as fairy tales are a great teaching source for children.
