The disembodied spirits of the dead,
When all of thee that time could wither sleeps
And perishes among the dust we tread?

A pillar of darkness to the shifting ground.

Between the moon-meshed olive-trees;

That casting off earth's fettering bonds had gained immortal goals!

In science:

We quote from Ref.: ”Quantum teleportation is the disembodied transport of an unknown quantum state from one place to another”.
Entanglement and Teleportation of Gaussian States of the Radiation Field
Their eagerness to struggle with the fascinating problems of building it reflects the disembodied thinking that physics teaches.
Physics Education Research: Or it's so hard to find good help these days
In this proposal, a physical property is disembodied from the object it belongs to, much like the ’grin without a cat’ in Lewis Carroll’s novel.
The Complete Quantum Cheshire Cat
Importantly, however, in Ref. the process of ’disembodification’ is only partially achieved, in the sense that it is only the circular polarization of the photon that is separated from the photon.
The Complete Quantum Cheshire Cat
This naturally raises the question of whether or not a physical property can be entirely disembodied from its physical carrier.
The Complete Quantum Cheshire Cat
Thus, the cat (the photon) is disembodied from its grin (the circular and diagonal polarizations, i.e. the x and y components).
The Complete Quantum Cheshire Cat
However, from table 1 it is clear that this ’disembodification’ process is here only partial.
The Complete Quantum Cheshire Cat
Moreover, one may argue that this component corresponds exactly to the initial polarization of the photon, hence making it unclear (at least to the skeptic) whether ’disembodification’ really occurs or not.
The Complete Quantum Cheshire Cat
We have described a complete quantum Cheshire cat, thus showing that a physical property can be entirely disembodied from the object it belongs to.
