Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This is my first post and I have come here as I cannot find an answer anywhere else.

So, my physic knowledge is limited to what I learnt in High School, supplemented with the odd bit of further reading via books and the internet. However, many of the concepts I learnt about I find fascinating.

At a very top level, I have read on the concept (not any of the underlying math etc) of entangled particles. My question is as follows, and this is where i cannot find an answer (so please bear with me).

On the basis that two particles are entangled, at the point of measurement does their combined probability distribution wave collapse and therefore the clockwise spin, for example, of one mirror the anti-clockwise spin of the other?

Does the wave collapse back through time to the point they became entangled, which is why the information transfer appears to happen instantly? and does this suggest time (and space) are therefore not what we conventially perceive them to be?

Following on, if particles become entangled with each other as we move through what we understand as time (so a single particle is entangled with many others over a period of time), hypothetically if we were able to somehow measure the properties of all particles would this somehow collapse our reality into something else. Would 'time' stop because there would then be no uncertainty and is the perception of time is only probability distribution playing out?

Having seen a few other posts on this site, i have seen some comments get cut down quite harshly. I post this question our of pure interest and if it is total rubbish please say so, but understand i have posted here as i do not know where else to ask the question!

Many thanks

Phil
