If all the quarks, gluons, electrons, photons, gravitons and so on in existence came from a single-point event, are they all quantum entangled? (Strange Universe Series)
We are closing in on where I’ve been going with this Strange Universe Series of questions now. In the question at the top of the list below, we established that when two particles become quantum entangled, measurements made to one in such a way as to collapse its quantum wave function instantaneously collapse the wave function of the other particle or particles that are entangled with it, and this is true even when the two entangled particles are located at distinctly remote points.
We established in the 2nd question near the bottom of this list that quantum entanglement can stretch over any distance from a few angstrom units to billions of light years, and will still act instantaneously.
These two facts leave me wondering how much in the Universe is already quantum entangled with many other particles. Wouldn’t the big bang have scrambled all their entanglement capacities? If so, would their entanglement persist right up until today?
This is a continuation in the Strange Universe Series questions as follows:
18—What is the speed of action of quantum entanglement over distance?
17—If Space is emptiness, what does gravity grab to bend it?
16—If photons have no mass, why are they affected by gravity?
15—What does it take to convert energy into mass?
14—How does the universe impose its fractal-like patterns of order on chaotic systems?
13—How small can the repetitive fractal features of nature get?
12—How can the most distant quasar be 28 Billion light years away?
11—Can nothing exist without the Universe?
10—How can order emerge out of chaos?
9—Where is the center of the Universe?
8—If CERN proves there are parallel universes, will you move?
7—If the universe expands at faster than the speed of light, does it begin to go back in time?
6—What is the expanding universe expanding into?
5—Big Bang Theory—How can you divide infinity into a single finite whole?
4—How would you answer this speed-of-light question?
3—What happens when the expansion of the Universe reaches the speed of light?
2—Over what distance can quantum entanglement remain instantaneous?
