Shortage of certain products explained by quantum physics

All the media talk about the lack of certain products in the stores in connection with the Covid-19 pandemic. A new theory developed by scientists at the EHTB in Zurich, including Prof. Dr. Klaus Köfler, has been put forward by the EHTB. Ernesto Girasole, a communications specialist, and physicist Frank Sonders, known for his work on correlated quantum particles, helps to explain why certain products went missing from stores due to the coronavirus crisis.

Basing their model on the study of entangled particles in quantum physics and the correlations of human actions, it would appear that the scientists are able to show that the simultaneous purchase of toilet paper or canned ravioli would have a remote influence on the purchase in other stores by other customers. The effect, which is still poorly understood, would pass through payment terminals that already use quantum cryptography to encrypt remote communications. According to Frank Sonders, it would appear that quantum entanglement is spreading through bank computers. Sonders said that since quantum entanglement has no spatial limits, it is not surprising to see these mass effects.

Ernesto Girasole further explains that quantum information also propagates in mobile phones by going up the encryption chain, and it is through this channel that customers would be directly influenced in their purchases. As a British study also shows, this purchasing behaviour is not conscious. "Most customers have the impression that they are shopping as usual," says Sonders.
