The firewall has been proposed to explain why entanglement monogamy isn't violated in the AMPS thought experiment. The firewall is hypothesized to break the entanglement between the particle pairs of Hawking radiation created near the horizon so that the total sum of radiation emitted by the black hole can be maximally entangled. However, if the Penrose interpretation is correct then the firewall becomes superfluous, as entangled states (or different possible states of a wave function) which reside in spacetimes with sufficiently different geometries will collapse. The ill-definedness of their respective energies due to relativistic effects causes the quantum states to decohere. Could this potentially explain the loss of Hawking radiation pair entanglement?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
