Georgie McDonald returns to confuzzle our brains (or unfuzzle, if you are scientifically inclined). Be warned ― it’s not for the easily mindblown!

I previously told you about Einstein’s theory of ‘spooky action at a distance,’ which might have left your brain in a tangled mess. So, to get your brain back in gear for the next article in this series, here is a riddle:
