>>8210368 >nonlocally on a microscopic level I don't think I've ever had this thought before but isn't everything non-local due to space quantization? Event A takes place in location A, but causes event B in location B. A and B have to be separated by at least one Planck length. Is this non-locality? If it is, how could anything ever be local? Someone smart please make sense of this, I'm way too high to think about this coherently.
Also I did the butthole entanglement shitpost. Sorry. Kind of
>>8210383 Ahhhhh youre right. the boson interacts with electron 1 in space A, then travels to B to interact with electron 2. Forgot about that. So then the only difference in a non-local interaction is the lack of a mediator particle? Is it possible that we just haven't found the "quantum entanglement mediator" boson yet? Or has that been ruled out?
>>8210400 Ruled out because whatever the mechanism is that communicates between entangled states is able to do it at space-like separated distances beyond the reach of matter that can travel at sub-light speeds. Some kind of instantaneous action-at-a-distance
>>8210400 >Is it possible that we just haven't found the "quantum entanglement mediator" boson yet? Inventing a boson to explain quantum entanglement would be like inventing a force to explain inertia.
>>8210400 No and things can't go FTL and think of them as waves not particles when you deal with wave like behavior and you don't even need entanglement to observe similar phenomena, would you say collapsing a single photon immediately sends that information to all possible locations to tell them they can't exist? You can lense a photon around an entire galaxy and observing it at one side doesn't send FTL information to the other side saying stop existing over there. You would also need infinite energy for the classical eigenstates of position, etc. There are a multitude of interpretations of QM that explain superposition without resorting to non-causality.
>>8210501 >you don't even need entanglement to observe similar phenomena, would you say collapsing a single photon immediately sends that information to all possible locations to tell them they can't exist? That is entanglement.
>>8210837 it's this kind of disingenuous meme posting that ruins science for everyone. local realism is dead as far as consensus physics is concerned, so keep your personal interpretations to yourself you cuck fuck
I flip a coin you cant see an hold it in one hand. I let you pick and its empty. HOLY SHIB le entangled coin is in the other hand
If you really wont learn the material, id recommend 'the quark and the jaguar' by mann—gell (sp?) as a laymans concept crash course on a lot of shit like this, including what entanglement is and how it can be used generate private cyphers in public for encryption.
>>8210859 no fuck you. if you understood it properly you'd know why the measurement trigger completely opposes the assumption that they are/must be entangled and the observation actually ruining the observation is bullshit.
>>8210870 If someone gave you the impression the Higgs boson was an explanation for mass, they explained it wrong. Interactions with the Higgs field give mass to some particles that would otherwise be massless, but it's not responsible for all mass, and it's certainly not an explanation for mass.
Mass isn't necessary for inertia, either; photons don't have mass, but they do have momentum and thus inertia. Inertia comes from conservation of momentum, which at the quantum level comes from translation symmetry and Noether's theorem.
The Higgs boson was found not by theorizing it, which happened decades before it was discovered, but by looking for its decay products in particle collisions. The principle is that you look at particles that might have come from a Higgs boson, calculate the mass of what produced them, make a histogram over many events, and look for a peak.
