Then when you mentioned that it was a crazy idea, I was anxious to give an example. Not to prove you wrong or anything but just because I think it's so fascinating and I didn't want to pass up an opportunity to share.
Honestly I had never heard of the experiment I quoted, but it seemed like a good example of entanglement ignoring time boundaries so I figured it was the perfect article to cite - even if it didn't and still doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
I'm going to try to work through the Wired article though once I can focus a little bit. I'm pretty wired from sleeping all day so my mind is all over the place right now.
if you want a real mind boggle about time entanglement and quantum mechanics give this a quick read.
the specific article talks about avoiding the grandfather paradox. but imagine if CTC's can be controlled without a time machine? then maybe the processors of the future wont have the migration or AB problem that was being discussed in the other thread.
EDIT:: it actually covers very briefly particle tunneling at the end.
