I've never quite been satisfied with the unanswered questions regarding the origins and practical application of twin flames.
I'm not even sure I've been able to grok soulmates, despite a deep inner knowing that something was inexplicable about it all. Too much mystery and magical abstraction, and not enough brass-tack concrete basis -- not for me, anyhow. And to learn of my own high likelihood of being on a trajectory to reuniting with mine? I knew I had to start getting serious about this serious lacking. But that even may have be missing the point -- and the potentially much bigger picture. And so, I did what I always have: I returned to science.
The hitherto legendary Higgs-Boson may finally have been found at CERN in Geneva, thanks to the Large Hadron Collider, but modern physics' greatest mystery remains an enigma: quantum entanglement.
We know that QE occurs naturally; certain migration patterns of birds, for instance. We also have been successfully recreating it in the lab for the past several years. But what might Einstein's biggest bugbear, the 'spooky action at a distance' which led to Bohr's -- and, ultimately, the whole of quantum mechanics' most major victory -- tell us about the twin flame phenomenon, and, likely, soulmates in general?
If you ask me, everything.
While nicknamed 'The God Particle', the Higgs-Boson held upon its infinitely tiny shoulders, the hopes of many a string theorist, as of yet vainly seeking confirmation of the latest of the modern branch's pet hypothesis: M-theory; supersymmetry. The hunt for the proposed superpartner or s-particle, which would explain the 'symmetry' part of supersymmetry, remains elusive. But, in its absence, quantum entanglement continues to amaze, with its uncanny ability to link particles (atoms) across infinite distances, transferring signals, sharing information, and, most of all -- interacting.
A quick n' dirty QE physical science primer:
The most stable experimental form of quantum entanglement has been performed via photons through a crystal; the entangled photons are easily viewed as a pair of light beams, now off-shot from the whole. Its inextricability (or, in physics, separability) may be invisible, but it's what yields their new conjoined state.
To keep it simple, remember two things: an unobserved particle has spin in all possible states (and, technically, none); the spin is only determined (and, henceforth, set) upon observation. And, when entangled, its twin will always 'choose' a spin that's its partner's direct opposite. (It's common parlance to call this entangled state 'twin particles', incidentally, in reference to the powerful, mysterious relationship that's formed by the act of their becoming entangled.)
Now, there's something to be said of new research seeking to entangle larger, complex systems -- which can be biological in nature. A curious thing takes place when a subsystem of a previously entangled system (or network) is 'disentangled', or even discretely observed. The smaller the evaluated segment, the least likely the particles are to be entangled. It's when larger segments are studied of a greater system that we find entanglement to not only be possible, but extremely likely. Specifically, when halved.
Now, think on that for a moment. Consider the potential implications for the quantum entanglement of biological systems. Further, contemplate the potentiality for an entangled binary system to emerge from the larger network.
Let's extrapolate; what properties such a biological binary system should have, if it's been entangled at the atomic level?
Entangled particles (or systems) mirror each other, as if 'reflecting' its opposite. It's hypothesised to achieve this through FTL (faster-than-light) communication across infinite distances -- of not only space, but also time. In fact, a system can become entangled at a future date which then leads to its entanglement state occurring in the past!
This shows not only that QE systems are communicating, but actively participating in each other's experience, no matter the distance or point in time at which either happen to be present.
What are some features of such systems?
to become entangled, they must have been created at the same point in time. After this, they are literally inseparable and treated as a single system or unit.
for what one experiences (in case of the example, spin) the other will 'recreate' its opposite state, despite having no knowledge -- prior or present -- or observing the state of its twin. The law of conservation requires these must always be in an opposite state (or spin).
prior entangled pairs can become a part of a larger system of other pairs also entangled, but separately so. Together, they are entangled, but when observed apart from it, the originally entangled pairs still act as a separate, discrete subsystem.
I don't know about you, but this is phenomenal information, and could lead to an entire body of niche research, exploring the potential for the twin flame phenomenon, rather than being purely rooted in religious philosophy or spiritual thought, actual experimental physics. It just might be the beginning of a genuinely testable hypothesis!
I will return with examples of how 'twin flames' (entangled souls) could still be the part of a larger entangled system (oversoul) and why our 'soulmates', with whom we may share similar allegedly psychic or otherwise anomalous experiences, could be explained as being part of a co-entangled subsystem. There are even reports of only one twin (of the entangled pair) becoming entangled with an immediate subsystem of which it is also part. This could very well explain the various 'degrees' to which we can feel 'soulmated'.
I also believe that 'karma' could be a natural consequence of QE across time; the entangled particles remain of a single system together, and so are often found in close proximity to one another. External events (time, forced decay, other collisions) must act upon the QE system to set one twin far apart from the other. Else, they tend to maintain a proximal as well as 'energetic' or force-based bond.
Newest research also explains the variability of some entanglements. While many may decay at a slow yet steady rate over time, leading to an eventual disentanglement (though an exact estimate or prediction of cannot yet be made) 'entanglement sudden death' has been reported, in which a QE system will disentangle rapidly and unexpectedly, allowing the now free particles to become entangled in entirely new systems, or 'join' one that was previously established.
This is incredible news.
We may finally be one step closer to understanding why certain 'twin flame' attachments suddenly vanish, or unanticipated 'soulmate bonds' form equally suddenly. As might even be so bold as to posit that 'twin flames' may not be identical across all systems; as rate of decay for entanglement can vary in certain cases, leading to a system to separate long before its expected time.
I believe that directly entangled souls will act akin to the means we have perceived of twin flames. They will mirror one another energetically, maintain proximity across time -- leading to many shared 'past lives' (as all that is multidimensional is also simultaneous and concurrent) -- and an immediate recognition at the cellular level. There may even be similarities in genetics.
What, or how, might we interpret 'spin' in an organic system? Gender is one defined duality that could result in an opposite polarity. It's easy to muse then, that a 'projective and receptive' pair might be created through QE; the more esoteric principle of masculine versus feminine, regardless of biological sex.
Momentum may explain the tendency to be present within each other's temporal experience -- the lifeline. As they would travel at the 'same rate', with 'opposite spin'.
As a system decays, however, it may experience disturbances; this shows how or why we wouldn't expect (or require) they be of the same exact age, or possibly near it. Age would be variable. As would location. Looking purely at the big picture, we would say they should co-incarnate, so as to maintain temporal proximity to one another.
There are many ways to explore the relationship of the twin flame concept to the actual behaviours and observed traits of quantum entanglement systems.
And I feel this is just the beginning.
