The pure state of light is full entanglement thoughout spacetime
As a babe taking in snippets of physics, right or wrong, and running through my personal fuzzy logic to jigsaw some personal sanity of it all, I had this thought. Probably all hokum but got to put it out there.
What if light's natural state is entangled? All of space-time has the entangled body of
light in , around and through our collapsed state of matter.
This might mean the models made are from experiments which collapse light by sticking electrons in the road to make light show itself as a photon. We have made the photon model purely on these collapsed measuring stick vectors. We are seeing light's beaching state not light's traversing state. The collapsing state model has been projected onto the light's true traversing state.
Maybe light traversal is an initial entanglement then a re-collapsing re-entangling of light stuff until it hits matter for final collapse.
Don't get me wrong I realize the current models work extremely well due to the current level of communication, lasers, optics but something niggles me about the photon's ability to cross a void, at nature's speed limit, without a good action scene explanation of the electromagnetic field's workings.
||There is a possibility a photon might become entangled with
something else, during an interaction. However, if this is
true, we would expect that entanglement to break the next
time the photon interacts with something else (although
now it might be entangled with the something else). Then
net effect of this speculation is that a photon's history can
only be traced to its last interaction.
||That's the rub, I don't think we can test or interact (currently) with traversal, only the start and final interaction. All the models, from my simple perspective, seem to be built on this thin interaction skin of the whole natural electromagnetic transfer process.
||How do we poke the electromagnetic field of free space to test it's metal for understanding?
