i will finish my undergraduate physics in two semesters. i am considering getting my PhD with research on entanglement or quantum teleportation. i want to research teleportation to make it possible. i am wondering will the PhD be worth getting given the nature of my research. i already have a few degrees so i am getting tired of school, so i really want to make sure that a PhD is worth my time. i feel because my research is out there, although i believe foundations of the research are in entanglement, that getting a PhD will not get me any closer to my goal than doing the research on my own. i know that no one will fund my research, so i will have to do it on my own, which i am ok with. my thought is that because everything at this point is theoretical and i have access to other's research that a PhD maybe not be the most efficient use of my time. i do not know enough about the PhD program process to make a decision at this point, just looking for guidance. please do not waste my time or your time by commenting that my research is a waste of time because it is not possible. thank you.
