How Can You Be in Two Places at Once When You're Not Anywhere at All?

Bilocation is a term used to describe the alleged ability of an individual to be present in two different places at the same time.

Some fraudsters even boldly claim that they can be present in more than two places at a given time. The term multilocation is used to describe this alleged feat of endurance. To date, no evidence has been found to support the existence of bilocation or multilocation, except, of course, a great wad of useless anecdotes - some of which, to be fair, may just be hallucinations.

Bilocation is a power that is commonly associated with many would-be saints and is an easily-enough accomplished miracle requiring only a body double or a few credible witnesses to fake.

In reality[edit]

Bilocation is possible in quantum mechanics but this pertains primarily to entangled atoms or subatomic particles.[1]
