Entanglement (Verschränkung)


 Light waves to Schrödinger’s cat,
 it does not matter
 if a particular particle’s partiality
 parts from the classical concept
 of duality.
 For a wave can be a particle
 and matter, or matter not.

Behaviour at the quantum level
is unpredictable in the extreme

firing particles through a mountain
isn’t as odd as it first may seem.

Like position and momentum,
or like photons and matter,
waving to a particle
leaves light in tatters.

Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle meets  Schrödinger’s cat
 what matters is the wave
 so, that is that.
 Particle duality, an old scratchy cat,
 resolves matters discreetly

on the particle-mat.

Holes in the universe
 where the particles wave,

time passes slowly

on our way to the grave.

The presence of consciousness

lightens up the room
as wave turns to particle

and disappears far too soon.

Looking at the stars and waving at the past
I think and hope and pray that this magic will last.
