Gravity and epr paradoxes

  1. Jun 29, 2004 #1
    If I was inside a Faraday cage,a long way from a any gravitational sources such as stars and planets,and the cage had negative electric charges
    all over its outer surface,kept in place by a strong sheet of glass,and somebody suddenly placed a large aggregation of positive charges nearby (similarly contained),I would feel an accelerating force acting on the cage.I would not be able to distinguish this force from the force of a gravitational field.
    So I would decide that their is an equivalence principle which says that
    gravitational force can be equivalent to an accleration by the force of attractive electric charges.
    When a photon (one of a coupled pair of photons typically used in epr experiments) has its polarization measured it must cause electric charges to accelerate in the measuring device.The acceleration of these charges amounts to the creation of a strong gravitational field and the acceleration will not be constant so the gravitational field will oscillate and generate gravitational waves.Could these waves cause the second photon of a coupled pair
    to adopt a specific polarization?
