Can/do relativistic effects explain select quantum "phenomena"?
A photon (a mass less "particle" that travels at the speed of light) experiences spacetime in a different manner. A photon does not experience time. Would the sun and earth, for example, seem, in a sense, joined for the photon? There is our frame of reference and the other is from the photons' view. Does the photon, in a sense, travel outside spacetime when not interacting with any matterenergy? Does the photon length, in a sense, equal infinity? (from the length/time dilation, Lorentz transformation, equations) Can quantum entanglement be explained by relativistic effects?

just a thought from viewpoint of us (i.e. our frame of reference), there is distance between the entangled twins and is equal to the distance we separated them by from the viewpoint of the photon, there is no distance between the entangled twins (length traveled is zero) does this, in some sense, explain instantaneous effects in quantum entanglement?
