i was quite content with the idea of spacetime with its framework for which our experience resides. the predictions of relativity, the apparent expansion of space, the cosmic microwave background radiation etc are verifiable and are there, regardless of the explanation as to why.
then came quantum entanglement. to which i immediately gave it a place in the idea of what the universe is. two particles, separated, instantaneous .... hang on. the underlying meaning, i guess has just bubbled to the surface.
can it be said, that for entangled particles that space and time do not exist ? one view of this system is that "something" is exchanged or something makes these particles behave the way they do. but if there was no space, no time, no actual splitting of the two particles to begin with and the only separation is in our perception or experience, then our concept of space and time does not have to exist in the universe.
space and time only persist in our experience.
is this the underlying interpretation of entanglement ?
