Note: Quantum theory predicted this, but it has now been demonstrated. In other words, while it again shows that quantum mechanics is extremely counter-intuitive, it's not an unexpected "surprise."

Physicists have long known that quantum mechanics allows for a subtle  connection between quantum particles called     entanglement, in which measuring one particle can instantly set the  otherwise uncertain condition, or "state," of another particle—even if  it's light     years away. Now, experimenters in Israel have shown that they can  entangle two photons that don't even exist at the same time.

Too cool!
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

We'd already suspected that time wasn't an issue, it will be interesting to see how far they can go with this
