Most intriguing are the links between entanglement and energy production. Our bodies run on adenosine triphosphate, a chemical made in cells when electrons move through a chain of intermediate molecules. The process happens much faster than scientists can explain - apparently because of entanglement between the electrons. That would certainly tie in with the way …
