I like this new discovery. I have quoted the only part I can actually understand. But I believe everything in the Cosmos is connected – the mechanism escapes me – but here we have one! If at the Big Bang all energy was compressed, then everything MUST be connected.

PARTICLES on opposite ends of the universe can link quantum mechanical hands. The phenomenon hints at an entirely new aspect of the quantum reality underlying all matter.
The quantum pigeonhole effect is the simplest way to test the idea that unrelated particles can be correlated simply by being post-selected. You would only need to bring the particles together in the interferometer to test that they are in fact correlated. In theory, these electrons could be spread across the universe, never come anywhere near each other, and mere post-selection would link them up.
Given that this is happening to real particles all the time, either due to human measurements or natural interactions, does this mean that particles everywhere in the universe are correlated? “I’d say that the answer to that is yes,” says Tollaksen.
