Concept of Spatial Synchronicity
Quantum physics suggests that our universe is a holograph and virtual; the very concept of space and time, as we understand it, does not exist since everything happens at the same time in the same place.

Man has always aspired to the absolute, to purity to find his deepest nature.
Science with modern quantum physics, an indispensable tool to get to knowledge, to try to understand who we are, to get closer to immortality.
