move the farthest star

“Pick a flower on Earth and you move the farthest star.” – Paul Dirac

Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac (August 8, 1902 – October 20, 1984) was an English theoretical physicist who is regarded as one of the most significant physicists of the 20th century. Paul’s “pick a flower” quote is commonly explained as a reference to gravity, but what he actually meant by his statement, is that there is an instant reaction somewhere else in the universe by a change created here.  This could be simply explained away as just the weirdness of quantum mechanics, but a more detailed explanation involves electrons.

If you pick up a flower here on Earth, you change some quantum states of the electrons of the flower. Because of the Pauli Exclusion Principle, which says that no two electrons can occupy the same quantum state, every electron in the universe responds to this change, if already been occupying the state of the flower’s electrons. Stars too are made of electrons, ergo, when you pick a flower on Earth, you really do move the farthest star.
