Limits of Knowledge in the quanta world


Although intensively investigated during the last century, the microscopic world continues to fascinate and provoke controversy by seemingly endless abundance of wonderful events it hosts. Recent revolutionary discoveries reveal unexpected facets of the microcosm, proving real what, until recently, seemed fiction,- pairs of quantum particles that communicate (teleporting information) instantly, as if they evade space, or physical properties temporarily traveling separated from the particles which are associated to them. Whether they perceive this exciting journey as something that brings them closer to God or as a search for an ultimate preexistent truth, scientists, captivated by the miraculous phenomena they record, guide humanity, through their efforts, on the arduous road of discovering their own purposes.
