Communication with past and future?

  1. Dec 16, 2014 #1
    I have a question about quantum entanglement. If quantum entanglement can cause particles to travel through time and space does that mean we can use them to communicate with the future or past. Say I build a device on Monday that recives and transmits such particles would I be able talk to my self that exists in Tuesday assuming I still had the device, and when it came Tuesday could I talk to my past self on Monday and so on. Also would I be able to communicate across space instantaneously with such a device.

    There is no connection between what you are asking and quantum entanglement.

    Entangled particles travel through time and space the same way unentangled. Neither can exceed the speed of light and neither can send a signal back in time.
