“Einstein called it “spooky action at a distance,” but today quantum entanglement is poised to revolutionize technology from computers to cryptography. Physicists have gradually become convinced that the phenomenon—two subatomic particles that mirror changes in each other instantaneously over any distance—is real. But a few doubts remain. NOVA follows a ground-breaking experiment in the Canary Islands to use quasars at opposite ends of the universe to once and for all settle remaining questions.”

Thanks for the heads up!

Much likely a real fact, and for sure a tough riddle for the science to elucidate.

Mind-boggling stuff.

At the end, the narrator sums up the findings this way:

Accepting that entanglement is a part of the natural world around us, has profound implications. It means that an action in one place, can have an instant effect anywhere in the universe as if there is no space between them.
Or, that particles only take on physical properties when we observe them.
Or both.

A scientist then proposes that the Holographic Universe Theory might explain these findings.

I found this website that gives a pretty good explanation of the Holographic Universe. As always, one has to keep in mind that this is a verbal explanation of a mathematical formalism.
