A message into the future and even the past

Jack Dikian


Sending messages into the future and whatabout sending messages into the past

Bell’s theorem shows that there are limits that apply to local hidden-variable models of quantum systems, and that quantum mechanics predicts that these limits will be exceeded by measurements performed on entangled pairs of particles. This article discusses Bell’s theorem in the context of experiments that show that the predictions of quantum mechanics are consistent with the results of experiments, and inconsistent with local hidden variable models of quantum mechanics.

A series of experiments has demonstrated the quantum predictions that form the basis of Bell's Theorem and some would therefore claim that not only the predictions of quantum theory but also experimental results now prove, using Bell's theorem, that the universe must violate either locality or counterfactual definiteness.

So, basically, if entanglement through a spin placed on a particle results in another spinning in the opposite direction in exactly the same way and at exactly the same time no matter the distance between them – this may make for instantaneous communication, across in theory, any distance.

If we now consider learning’s from the twin paradox (see special relativity) in which a twin makes a journey into space in a high-speed rocket and returns home to find he has aged less than his identical twin who stayed on Earth. I.e. the twin, and everything else have aged at a much faster rate than him. He will essentially have traveled forward in time.

What if a particle is accelerated at a sufficient enough rate so that it travels forward in time, and at the same time second particle in the entanglement-pair is spun. Are we then essentially sending a message into the future.
