What is Entanglement of Matter?
What is entanglement of matter? Einstein said entanglement is “Spooky action at a distance.” He didn’t believe in the idea, but experiments have shown that quantum entanglement is real.
The theory says that when two particles interact during a reaction, they can become joined together mysteriously. They are like twins but with opposite qualities, so if one has a specific energy, the other one has the opposite energy.
If one particle has a +ve spin, the other will have a -ve spin. Measuring one particle’s spin automatically tells you the other particle's spin.
But that’s not all. It doesn’t matter the distance the particles are apart from each other. Some theories say the two particles instantly know what the other is doing.
Talk about a fast way to communicate.
The importance of quantum entanglement is the ability to communicate instantly between particles at any distance. This kind of communication will be very important in the future.
I will explain more in my next book about black holes and the shape of the universe.
If the past, present, and future are entangled, are they happening simultaneously?
The past, present, and future are time-based labels we use to keep track of our history. But everything happens at the present moment of the universe. The past is history, and the future is unknown.
You could say the past is becoming now, the present is happening now, and the future is starting now. In that sense, they are all happening simultaneously or entangled as one.
But the entanglement of matter doesn’t depend on time. Entanglement is a state of energy in matter, and that energy is always in the present moment.
Think of the labels of time we call the past, present, and future. They are your memories, the Now moment, and your imagination.
That means memories are thoughts, the Now is the present moment, and you have thoughts about the future.
Your thinking takes place Now in your present moment. We only have this moment in life.
Don't worry about the past or stress about the future. Try to be the best version of yourself at each moment because that's all you have.
Can entangled particles be evidence that time happens simultaneously?
This question asks about the time aspect of entanglement, and it’s an interesting concept when considering time dilation.
When particles are time and distance entangled, they are like twin particles.
If entangled particles are in different environments with a different force of gravity, their time will not be the same.
The answer is difficult to explain because you don't understand time. Let me explain.
Consider that time is not physical. Time doesn’t cause physical changes.
The tricky thing to realize is that time is merely a number on a clock, and we use a clock to measure events based on Earth's motion.
Therefore, things don't change with time but with energy.
An entangled particle is not entangled by time but by energy. I hope that helps you understand that time has no physical power.
If everything is traveling at the speed of light in the present moment, could we travel faster to the future?
Stop thinking about time. The future doesn't exist.
You can’t travel faster than light to go to a future that doesn't exist. The universe moves with the energy of motion and not with time.
Think about your life. You are born, and you live in your present moment, which is also the present moment of the universe.
You can’t jump from 5 to 20 years old. You have to wait 15 years, and it's not time that makes you age it's the motion from the explosion.
That means the Big bang event sent energy into the universe at the speed of light.
We use the speed of light to estimate the age of the universe.
We don't realize that we can't measure time, but we can estimate age.
Einstein made the mistake of measuring time in different frames of reference using the speed of light. Then he said time is relative.
But the universe only has one present moment, and we can’t move any faster than the present motion of the universe.
Remember this. It's not the time at the present moment. It's the motion at the present moment.
Has the speed of light changed since the big bang?
It’s natural to think of events such as the beginning of the universe as events that happened because of time. But what is time, and how does time make things happen?
When we sit still and relax, we don’t think of time. When people meditate, they lose track of time.
But the electrons in your body are moving at the speed of light, and your body sends out heat in the form of infrared light.
Nothing is still except your mind has lost the feeling of time. But motion continues, the Earth keeps spinning, and we call the motion time.
Time doesn’t exist the way that the speed of light exists. Time is a measurement of motion, and we use clocks to measure the speed of light.
If a clock is not ticking normally, it will incorrectly measure the speed of light. If the speed of light is changing, the error is in the clock since the time on a clock is relative to the force of gravity.
As far as we know, electrons are the same as they have always been, and they always emit photons at the speed of light.
Light travels at light speed; what mechanism gives light a wavelength?
Let me give you a story about the description of light and energy. Imagine what happens when you walk into a dark room and turn on the light bulb.
The room has furniture and objects on tables and chairs with pictures on the walls and fabric on the furniture.
Each item is made of different materials, different atoms, and molecules, and each atom has electrons surrounding them.
The electrons have a frequency or energy corresponding to the molecules they orbit.
When you open the door and turn on the light, photons move to every electron in the room.
The energy of the photons increases the energy of the electrons, and immediately they emit a photon with the frequency (energy) and wavelength that the electron has.
The wavelength of the photons corresponds to the color and material of the objects in the room.
Each electron is moving at the speed of light, and when it emits a photon, it has the same wavelength as the electron.
That wavelength enters our eyes, and we see the color of the object. The energy of the light is in the frequency of that photon.
Photons have a dual wave-particle nature. The electromagnetic wave from the electron moves the photon at the speed of light. The wavelength is the color of the light.
The particle nature of the photon is the energy or frequency of the light.
The wavelength times the frequency moves light at the speed of light.
I have three books examining the theory of relativity—Einstein: Blindsided By Light, Einstein: Distorted By Gravity, and Einstein: Misled By Time.
I want you to decide if Einstein made mistakes by thinking that time is relative.
Is it possible to fix the errors and update relativity, or should we replace it with a better theory?
Hey, let's start a new tribe of like-minded experts on time.
What matters is that you improve your relationship with time and add more meaning to the time in your life.
I wish you all the best in your journey to be an expert on time and have the time of your life.
My third book Einstein: Misled By Time, will be ready next month. I can't wait to get it published and into your hands.
