What is the connection between quantum physics and spirituality?

I have heard that quantum physics makes science more reconcilable with spirituality. Can you explain how this actually happens?

    Please see my response below to the question
    Quantum physics is the study of matter at a subatomic level. This includes the study of light, subatomic particles like electrons, protons, neutrons and also some very elementary particles like gluons, gravitons, quarks and the list is endless (as many particles have been proved to exist theoretically but have not been found yet).
    But as the scientists started delving into the subatomic world deeply, they found that the world of atoms is bizarre and fascinating. It is almost like entering into a magical kingdom where subatomic particles come in and out of existence. Many phenomenon are impossible to explain based on pure science and logic. Two such examples are “Wave Particle duality of light(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DfPeprQ7oGc) and quantam entanglement(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lOWZ0Wv218). There are many more which I can list but I have just named a few.
    No coming to the relation between science and spirituality, like I mentioned before, Quantum world is a world where common sense and logic do not apply. Therefore when sincere scientists of the past have delved into quantum world deeply, they have realized there is some higher dimension that is beyond our comprehension. Thus the quantum world lies at the borderline of science and spirituality, Through the study of the quantum world one can realize that there is a higher dimension which is beyond our comprehension and Life is beyond the assembly of just atoms and molecules i.e. there is a higher dimension to life which we cannot comprehend.
    Few great scientists of the past Like Heisenberg and Einstein have testified to this and have come to a similar conclusion. I hope this answers your question. Thanks and Haribol
