Summary:
A layman's question about entanglement
I am fascinated by entanglement. I have a theory but it's not based in enough physical knowledge for me to say whether or not it makes sense. I suspect on the quantum level that time looses its ability. Thus, distance would lose its significance. So when I hear spin can be affected at any distance is that relevant?
Please be kind as I have a VERY basic understanding in this area

:welcome:

If you want to learn more about QM, then there are many people on here who can help. We won't get sidetracked, however, into discussing your alternative theories.

Your question is too vague to make much sense. Entanglement at one level is well understood, although it may challenge our prior conceptions about how nature ought to work.

Please be mindful of the forum rule about not posting new theories until they have been published in an appropriate peer-reviewed journal.

However, questions about how entanglement works and what is known about it are welcome and can be posted in the Quantum Physics subforum. As @PeroK says, there are many people here who can help you understand this stuff. This thread is closed.
