I have always wondered, hypothetically, according to current physical theories (one or more hypothetical theories) _if_ a body (an "object" with mass in space/time, assuming some kind of unobserved QM state)… simply "disappeared".
What would happen? What would be the signature effects?
Would there be any non-local QM side-effects? What happens with "entanglement"? Is unobserved "disappearance" (or collapse to nothing) possible given current hypothetical physical theories?
And Thomas Aquinas only wanted to know if an angel in going from point A to point B had to travel through the in-between. It’s a good thing the good saint didn’t know about entanglements.
Here is a readable article by Tia Ghose from LiveScience that appeared in the Huffington Post just last month: Quantum Entanglement Experiment Reconfirms Physics Phenomenon Einstein Called ‘Spooky’
Want a brief definition? This is from a HuffPo mouseover for the above picture:
According to quantum mechanics, two or more particles can become "entangled" so that even after they are separated in space, when an action is performed on one particle, the other particle responds immediately. (Shown here, two entangled mechanical oscillators made up of two pairs of trapped ions.)
One of the problems with some Christians including many Popes is that they are continually insisting on faith as independent from science. It isn’t. Some scientists now posit the brain as an kind of quantum computer and that conscience thought are in fact a non-local process – another phrase for quantum entanglement.
I believe that love is a quantum entaglement of consciousnesses. Fifty years ago Tennessee Williams stated in an interview with Mike Wallace: The most important moments of life are when we break out of our own egostical shell and really sense the rpesence of another person. I thpought then that he was defining love. I think now, science is catching up with Williams. Time for religion to do the same.
But it is independent from science. If it depends, it is not faith, it is reassurance.
It does not mean one has to ignore scientific discoverhes. Still tgey will answer only the question “how” but not “why”
I very much agree with this. The “why” will never be answered by science.
The science-theology dialogue is necessary to use the brake when it comes to scientism. Gould felt that there was non-overlapping magisteria.Yet, he was open-minded, went to the Vatican when called, encouraged in this approach by Sagan, and both of them were secular Jews. It is therefore somewhat early to depend entirely on what quantum physics and evolution have to say.
Perhaps Jesus utilized anti-gravity at the resurrection.
The US Military has a fleet anti-gravity spaceships, disk shaped and cigar shaped. that disappear. These have been mistaken by the public as UFOs.
“The Lockheed X-22A is equipped with Neutral Particle Beam directed-energy weapons, that it is capable of effecting optical as well as radar invisibility, and that it is deployable for worldwide military operations.”
PS Link to Lockheed X-22A excerpt.
Most of the accounts of UFO are accounts with military arsenal.
Known cases of bilocation (Padre Pio, Sister Yvonne etc) imply both body reality (body 1) and a double (body 2) that looks as real as the original body. The latter can appear/materialize and disappear/dimaterialize in no time.
… while the former can be there and yet not there at one and the same time.

Consciousness can operate independent of time and space and oppose to Nietzsche’s famous “Zeit Raum und Kausalität sind nur Erkenntniß metaphern, mit denen wir die Dinge uns deuten” in The Philosopher. (Translation: “Time, space and causality are but metaphors of knowledge by which we explain things to ourselves”)…
…unless you think of knowledge in terms of consciousness.
PessaH in Hebrew can be translated as “(quantum) Leap”.
… a quantum leap of consciousness….
