Here's a thought...
If you were to take a pair of entangled particles, slow one of them down, and speed one of them up... would they not, in fact, experience different proper times?
Assuming the quantum entanglement survives this disparity (experiments with K bosons show they do) wouldn't the time dilation effect build up, causing an increasing difference in time between the two entangled particles such that changing the quantum state of the slower one would manifest as the opposite state change in the faster one at an earlier time?
Would this not effectively give us a "window to the future"?
And most importantly, isn't this the last invention? Since a window into the future gives us access to all future inventions?
Of course it's entirely possible that the slower particle in this case would simply stay in a persistent state of superposition with the wave function being unable to collapse either to prevent a causality violation (Novikov's Self Consistency Principle) or because of a quantum cosmology in which the size of our universe it not so much a function of the speed of light over time since the big bang as they taught us in physics 101... but rather a function of all the matter comprising the universe and every possible quantum state of that matter and every subsequent possible quantum state (minus the states with a quantum probability of zero).
Sorry, just bored at work, thought I'd poke the hornet's nest! :D
