       A weird thought just entered stage left. If the universe was created
from a single point (big bang) could it be that there is a great deal of
entanglement in the universe already ?. If so it would theoretically be
possible to find entangled particles that are seperated by vast distances.
       I think i'll call that idea "Blainey's theory of entanglement" for
want of a snappier name.
       I cant really see that we could ever find proof of this unless we
happen upon two particles reletively close together (in human terms). Even
then how do you prove that they are entangled and not just randomly in the
same state ?.
