Snippets from the SAND’s team conversation at SAND13 US with Menas Kafatos, Professor of Computational Physics and Director of Center of Excellence at Chapman University. In these clips, Kafatos talks about entanglement and nonlocality, entanglement and philosophy, the underlying reality of what we perceive as daily life, and how entanglement points to the now.
This video is about Bell's Theorem, one of the most fascinating results in 20th century physics.

We've detected puny, stellar-mass black holes. And we've detected giant, supermassive black holes. But what about those in the middle?
Most of my life was spent as a materialist. I regarded physical matter as the basis of reality. From matter emerged biological organisms such as humans, which developed brains, and out of the brain emerged consciousness.
It is precisely science that makes the key point shine most brightly: the point that there is a fundamental respect in which ultimate intrinsic nature of the stuff of the universe is unknown to us — except insofar as it is consciousness.
According to Ervin Laszlo, the coherence of the atom and the galaxies is the same coherence that keeps living cells together, cooperating to form life.
How did great mathematicians like Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein make the leap from understanding basic mathematical concepts to answering fundamental questions about the Universe?
According to Charles Darwin, you are the product of your biological mother and father, just as they were the product of their biological mother and father, and so on back to the earliest days of humans and to all the species that came before.
Light as the radiant energy of creation started the ring-dance of atoms
David Bohm was one of the most distinguished theoretical physicists of his generation, and a fearless challenger of scientific orthodoxy.
In the quest for our true identity, what could be more authentic than our own thoughts?…
Sometimes in life, all the experience and knowledge simmering around in that ol’ consciousness of ours...
Q: How do quantum phenomena take part in photosynthesis and why is it important?
In our everyday life, time flows in one direction—forward. When you put a frozen pizza in the hot oven, the pizza heats up. When you hit a baseball, it flies over the wall (if you’re having a good day at bat). When you knock a coffee mug off a table...
Astronomer Natalie Batalha embodies a planetary sense of what “love” is and means.
The heart is essential to our life, pumping oxygenated blood throughout our body. But it’s also the…
