Short Story | Entangled

Updated: Jul 24, 2021



Astrophysics major Arnold woke up that morning, emboldened by an idea that he was convinced would alter the course of human history. He was bent to refute the theory of quantum entanglement.


So he went to his favorite spot on campus to work on his theory. He sat there pondering about the strangeness of the theory and how his equations would find a hole in the well-established theory.


Not long after, his friend Gwen, a biology major, sat with him. It was her favorite campus spot as well.


"Good morning, Arnold," Gwen said with coffee in hand.


Arnold nodded and smiled. "Morning, Gwen! I can't wait to tell you about this thing I learned yesterday in the lab."


"Oh, one of those boring physics problems again?"


"It's not boring," he said." You'll love it."


Gwen shook her head. "Can we talk about genetic manipulation for a change?"


" I'm scared of that stuff," Arnold said.
