I am not a scientist, but science, particularly quantum physics, intrigues me. Recently I came upon a book entitled Entangled Minds by Dean Radin, a senior scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences in Petaluma, California, which advances the thesis that the concept of entanglement in quantum theory may explain psychic faculties and parapsychological phenomena. I have become sufficiently emboldened to suggest that this concept might well apply to a well-known and long accepted principle in numerous spiritual traditions—the law of karma.  Radin does point out early in his book that there are “two flavors of stupidity: Just Plain Stupid and Mentally Deficient.” To avoid being categorized under one or other of those two “flavors,” I propose to tread cautiously on some unexplored aspects of karma, raising more questions than I intend to answer in any definitive manner.

First, what is entanglement? It appears that the word was first used by the noted physicist Erwin Schrödinger to describe the connection between separated particles that persists regardless of distance. Einstein’s famous remark that entanglement is “spooky action at a distance” perhaps encapsulates the phenomenon best. Could it be that connections persist not only over great expanses of space, but also over vast periods of time?
