# This New Deceptively Simple Equation Might Finally Unite The Two Biggest Theories In Physics

Whereas, EPR
represent Einstein, Rosen and Boris Podolsky, who co-wrote further researchpaper that year explaining quantum entanglement. So the letters in the above
equation rather than numerical values represent the names of some key
scientists in theoretical physics.

So what does
that mean?

In 2013,
physicist Leonard Susskind Juan Maldacena suggested that the two papers could
be referring to the same thing - something that no one else in that specific
area had previously well thought-out, including Albert Einstein himself.

Now Susskind
is back to discuss the effects if he’s really right. Now let’s analyze it.

As implied
by Einstein’s famous theory of general relativity, wormholes are like tunnels
among two places in the Universe. There aren’t just entrances to different
places but also different times. Theoretically, if you enter one side of a
wormhole, you’d come out from the other side straightaway, even if it happened
to be on the exact opposite side of the cosmos.

Alternatively:
Quantum entanglement describes the way that two particles can interrelate in
such a strange way that they become inevitably linked, and basically 'share' an
existence.

This means
that whatever happens to one particle will unswervingly and will straightway
affect the other - even if it’s many light-years away.

Okay, now
let’s try combining these two.

In this
recent research paper, Susskind proposes a set-up where hypothetical Alice and
Bob both take entangled particles - Alice takes one participant of each pair,
and Bob takes the exact other, and they go in opposite directions of the
Universe in their theoretical hypersonic jets.

Now once
Alics and Bob are in their distinct places, Alice and Bob knock their particles
together with such rich force, they generate two different black holes.

Susskind says the consequence is two entangled
black holes on opposite sides of the Universe, linked in the mid by a massive
wormhole.

Tom
Siegfried over at Science News said:

"If the
equation ER = EPR is true, a wormhole will bond those black holes;
entanglement, therefore, can be explained using the geometry of wormholes. Even
more fascinating ... is the probability that two entangled subatomic particles
alone are themselves connected somehow by a kind of quantum wormhole. Since
wormholes are contortions of spacetime geometry – proposed by Einstein’s
gravitational equations - detecting them with quantum entanglement would forge
a bond between gravity and quantum mechanics."

Is Susskind
truly right about this? It is hard to say just yet since he has published his
paper on pre-press blog arXiv.org to be openly analyzed by his peers.

"To me
it appears obvious that if equation ER = EPR is true, it is a very big deal,
and it must have affects on the basics and interpretation of quantum mechanics,
quantum mechanics and gravity are far more closely related than we (or at least
I) had ever thought", he writes, assuming that he is right.
