“My suspicion is that, as we look closer into the action of biological systems, we’ll find that it is ‘quantum hanky panky’ all the way down.”
Remarkable indeed :)

Thank you for posting this video.
For the first time, an understandable and enjoyable explanation of how some of the quantum effects seem to work. The devil is in the details. Since most things are defined by their relationships with other things, it is beginning to sink in a bit how quantum elements can relate to many things at the same time. Entanglement seems to be this same concept with differing versions of the same thing, IE having differing relationships with similar existents apparently at the same time? Perhaps time is the interesting part of this quandary?
Phonon assisted tunneling. Great stuff! Thanks for posting.
I’m glad this video is up here. I didn’t get a chance to finish it this morning. It brings new life into ” spooky action at a distance”.
