Is Entanglement related to Gravitational Fields?

  1. Sep 16, 2011 #1
    I read about Entanglement and the particles' peculiar attributes concerning instantaneous action from a distance, and I wonder if they are related to the notion of fields such as the gravitational field's attribute of inflicting action instantaneously.

    No, entanglement has nothing to do with gravity. And where did you get the idea that gravity was "inflicted" instantaneously? I was under the impression that the evidence leaned toward a speed of c for gravity.

    Well I'm just a layman, don't hit me. I got the impression that the warping of space and time in general relativity is done instantaneously. Hence I thought entanglement may be related.
