In 1982 Alain Aspect performed a series of experiments to prove that particles, once paired by some means of interaction, continue to demonstrate correlation in their properties regardless of the distance between them. Einstein, who imposed the constraint "nothing faster than the speed of light" in his theory of relativity, would be proved wrong. He famously argued that God does not play dice, and ended his lifetime vainly attempting to prove this. But the property of nonlocality was proven to exist, each particle responding to its paired 'twin' on an instantaneous basis, leaving no room for 'speed of light' to enter the equation at all.

The Universe is effectively a vast sea of interacting particles, each particle - via its interactions - playing a part in binding the whole together. Similarly, it may be surmised that society performs in the same way, regardless of the illusion of separation. Our actions, determinations, choices and thoughts contribute to a pattern of universal systems, at once subject to random dice-throwing and on the other hand bound by indelible forces of nature. Everett's interpretation and the Copenhagen interpretation are both looking at the same sets of data, and the questions that arise are not inherent in the maths, but in the nature of consciousness as a creative, influential, and guiding force.
The TwinFlame dynamic is proving increasingly popular in modern culture, as the thousands of people flocking to devoted social media sites are given to attest. Should you be wrapped up in a genuine twinflame relationship, you'll have discovered that every classic love song to stand the test of time was written around some element thereof. From bubble zone to runner/chaser and the toxicity of cyclic gameplay, it's there in every love-line written since the dawn of songwriting. Once burned, you'll understand every last one of them. You might even find yourself feeling 'rushes' through your body every time your thoughts connect in deeply felt agreement.
Having struggled to assimilate my own TF pattern with any kind of logic at all, I'm given to fall back on the factual fabric of nonlocality which has delivered numerous affirmations of its own. I've come to the conclusion that somewhere in the middle of it all, you're given to find yourself, but when you do, you're also given to protect it. For the TF is neither partner nor lover, nor even a long-term friend, but the consequence of two deeply attracted people setting light to a highly charged stream of energy and finding themselves caught up in an annihilation sequence of reaction and reverberation. These people may not be compatible on any realistic, practical level. The chances statistically of them meeting are correspondingly low, just as the chances of electron-positron intersection are low. When it happens, however, the explosion is a matter of record, its force being enough to spill a vast quantity of energy into the social universe from which some benefit - not necessarily apparent to the parties concerned - is gained. Many TFs sit tight on the sidelines, leaving those who are predisposed to pen-addiction piecing together some kind of picture as to what the TF relationship looks like.
The resultant posts to be found out there are full of advice, empathy and an avalanche of hope that once you've healed yourself, the love of your life will, in a flurry of miraculous mutual awakening, return to reunite with you. But once you've gone down the path of annihilation to find something of yourself still left inside, you won't necessarily be that keen to let the one who screwed over your heart (played your body and didn't much mind how much they f**ked with your head) anywhere near what's left of you ever again. You might even be inclined to reason that they got a bigger part of your soul than you bargained on giving and while you're not in a position to demand it back, you may be understandably disinclined to let them suck any more of the colourful contents of your spirit than they've managed to devour so far. This can appear to be the only reality, but in the fullness of Multiversal potentials of uncertainty, it's not. Both sides of the quantum paradox create their own illusions.
TwinFlame is a lesson for two deeply entangled people who at the heart of themselves are unlikely to change. The bright glare of potential compatibility won't always handle the light of logical assimilation. That's not to take anything from the lesson, or the internal self-work that goes with it, or the healing element that you're naturally forced to go through, or the fact that you're only going to get one such test in your lifetime. Not to say that in lifetimes hence you won't find yourself squaring up on more of a balanced footing. Whatever the future holds in this lifetime or the next, it's as well to be sure of who you are, to keep hold of your position in unshakable honesty and to value your integrity even when the self-searching you are pushed into creates a vortex from which seemingly you can't escape.
In finding the strength to work out from within what it is you need to grow, more of the same stuff from your TF may mean more toxicity. The love in your heart needs rightfully to be reserved for more useful application. Renewing the calm within yourself will prove positive in the effects, and we sometimes have to turn back on ourselves to make room for something to develop from the nothingness we can so easily become caught up in. While unconditionalism is all very well, for people like you and me who don't live in teepees and can't possibly spend all day seeking states of enlightenment, it's all we can do to handle the demands of the world around us. Self-preservation requires a healthy dose of critical analysis. In the long run it may not be so much a case of what you've found, as a case of what you're no longer prepared to lose.
You, in the meantime, will always care. You'll care whether your TF draws their blinds against the light for evermore, whether they are truly happy, whether they'll ever find what you so dearly would have loved to share with them. But annihilation is swift, it comes sooner than you can blink - there is nothing you can do with hindsight other than to learn from it. If your path is true, its energy will change course into another trajectory of greater value. In this situation, you are only left to learn about yourself, because this particular phase you've found yourself in won't be coming round again, you can be very sure of that. Which is why the TF relationship is so uniquely special, and so infuriatingly non-local.
