Gravity, according to a theory postulated by the Emeritus Rouse Ball Professor of Mathematics at Oxford University, Sir Roger Penrose, is responsible for the frustrating inability of quantum objects - such as human beings - to materialize in two separate places simultaneously. In case you are wondering, in the subatomic world, individual photons, electrons, atoms, and molecules have been placed in two or more separate places simultaneously. That’s right, an individual atom and and individual molecule occupied numerous locations at the same time. Weird, you bet it is!

  1. An interesting test of this will occur soon. They’ve worked up a way for a macroscopic (i.e. visible) object to be in two places at once. Should be interesting!
