Are we all perhaps linked by invisible bonds? Do the actions of one affect others, even if those others are far away? Our lives and the universe itself may be all part of a single mechanism in which all creatures and events are 'entangled' with one another.

Harry Potter's "Cloak Of Invisibility" Closer To Reality
Now we need to get to work on the "flying broom" technology!
A real cloak of invisibility is no longer hidden to researchers at Duke University, who developed a material that can "cloak" an item from detection by microwaves.
The system works like a mirage, where heat causes the bending of light rays and cloaks the road ahead behind an image of the sky.
Beyond possible military applications, it also might have a very practical use by making mobile communications clearer.
"Cloaking technology could be used to make obstacles that impede communications signals 'disappear,'" said David Smith of Duke University in North Carolina, who worked on the study published in the journal Science.
