Quantum entanglement as a higher dimension arc?

  1. Sep 5, 2013 #1
    although the anthropic landscape looks appealing, I am not big fan of the string theory, due to untestable extra dimensions. In isolation, without sensory information(experiments) the humans(theoretical physicists) start to hallucinate(String theory).

    But what if higher dimensions can be probed by testable physics, such as: in quantum entanglement when the 2 photons/electrons split, it might be created a Entanglement Arc in a higher dimension that connects them, as such in our 3 dimensions the distance between them could be very big (let’s say 220 miles to the ISS) but the Higher Dimension Arc length can be only 1cm.

    The correlation might not be instant, as proved by researchers from Shanghai university, shown that the lower bound speed to be 10 000 faster than light: http://arxiv.org/pdf/1303.0614v1.pdf. The high bound might be 1 plank time as the arc minimal length is 1 plank unit.

    The correlation(communication) will travel through the entanglement arc at the speed of light but in our 3 dimensions we will perceive it as FTL.

    Also the "Entanglement Between Photons that have Never Coexisted" phenomenon as presented here: http://news.sciencemag.org/2013/05/...tum-link-between-photons-dont-exist-same-time might also be explained by continuously exiting arcs that links 1-2, 3-4, and upon 2-3 entanglement the 1-4 become linked as well.

    By studying the correlation delays we might probe and test phenomenon in higher dimensions (e.g. the arc might get broken by particles interacting in a higher dimension cutting it).

    I'm not a physicist, but someone that loves physics, so maybe someone can help me out with this ideas and tell me why I could be wrong and even better why I could be right :-)

    Looks like you yourself are in isolation and are hallucinating without sensory information!
    Your idea seems appealing to me,but is as testable as the extra dimensions of string theory!
    In order to see whether your idea can be correct or not,some properties of the extra dimensions should be known which means your idea is as untestable as string theory.
    I can't prove or disprove your idea,I just can tell it is a good idea which can persist among others and maybe a physicist can say whether it makes sense or not.Then maybe some other physicist can conduct an experiment to test what the first one said.I'm not capable of doing any of them!
