New Theory Suggests Time Is An Illusion Created By Quantum Entanglement

An article that was published in Physical Review A, by Alessandro Coppo and other researchers, discussed a new theory suggesting time is an illusion created by quantum entanglement.

What we originally believed to be a fundamental component of our physical world may simply be an illusion brought about by quantum entanglement, according to a new understanding of time. That’s a pretty strong claim, and understanding it completely will undoubtedly require some investigation. Now let’s get started.

To comprehend the fundamentals of this new theory, we must grasp quantum entanglement among other things. Quantum entanglement can be defined as a situation in which two items are so closely related to each other that, regardless of their distance from one another, when one is disturbed, the other is likewise upset. We also need to comprehend “general relativity’s” explanation of time.

According to general relativity, time is a fundamental component of the universe, space-time defines our physical reality, and time may dilate and warp in the presence of gravity. Scientists think they have observed space-time surrounding the Milky Way’s black hole warping. Quantum theory, on the other hand, asserts that time is unbending. It remains unchanged. A large number of scientists think that both theories should define time in the same way. Alessandro Coppo and colleagues set out to find a novel definition of time to demonstrate this.

Fundamentally, the argument here seems to indicate that time is only a result of entanglement. It claims that an object’s appearance changing over time is solely caused by its entanglement with a clock. As a result, the cosmos would appear to be entirely static and unchangeable to anyone seeing it from the outside.

Undoubtedly, this is a novel and intriguing approach to defining time. Although the new concept of time is seen favorably by many physicists, there are still certain issues that need to be resolved before we can properly grasp what time is and whether or not it is a true byproduct of quantum entanglement. The question of whether or not we can test any of these theories also has to be addressed.

The researchers disclosed the findings in an article that was published in Physical Review A.

Last year, GreatGameIndia reported on a growing group of experts who believe that we should abandon the assumption in quantum physics that present actions can’t affect past events, known as ‘retrocausality.‘ According to this perspective, the future might influence the past.
