Response to The Straight Story (Original post)

8. Could it be that the two entangled particles are actually the same particle?

Since multiple unseen dimensions are part of contemporary physics discussions, might a particle pass through an as yet unidentified dimension that allows it to appear in two positions in our dimension?
This would be a kind of wormhole dimension that enters our dimension in two different places.

It is essentially the same particle so when you do something to one, the other instantly reacts because it's the same particle.
This way it doesn't affect relativity at all because there is no transmission of information and no speed at all, the particle remains stationary.

It is our viewing of the particle that is split.
