I am linking to a couple of cartoon clips from the movie and invite those who may watch/enjoy them to treat them as FABLES. Scientific accuracy is not the point here.
== Quantum Entanglement clip:

credit: tubeposter88 | December 17, 2008The clip talks about “electrons”.
Cf. David Jarvis’s site on Quantum Entanglement To quote: “… the instant that the first photon‘s [he explains the notion of “photon“] polarization is known, the second photon’s polarization will be the exact opposite.” An April 2010 article in Nature talks about Quantum entanglement in photosynthetic light-harvesting complexes

== Double-slit Experiment clip:
