Foer borrowed the title for this work from a New York Times article (Oct. 2015) about recent discoveries in quantum mechanics: that two previously entangled particles, even if separated by the width of the universe, could instantly interact. Foer was most intrigued by the idea that a chain of entangled particles girdle the entire globe. Foer states, “This discovery has huge implications for digital technology which led me to think about satellites that connect us to the world-wide web and our techno-navi apps, whose predecessor was celestial navigation, which is illustrated by the diagrammatic patterns and images of ships.”
