You know everything is/gets/was entangled/intangled.

I need to get this untangled. Does any of this have anything to do with entropy?

First off, it seems to me that you are applying the term entanglement to interactions between particles that are already described as dependent on other properties.

I think of entanglement as Quantum Entanglement.

from Wikipedia:

quote:
Quantum entanglement is a physical phenomenon that occurs when pairs or groups of particles are generated, interact, or share spatial proximity in ways such that the quantum state of each particle cannot be described independently of the state of the other(s), even when the particles are separated by a large distance.

Is “entanglement” going to be one of those words in science that has multiple meanings that really confuse non-scientific minded people, like “theory?” Does it also mean or include Quantum Chromodynamics and molecular bonds?

I thought the way things got entangled was like when a photon is split into 2 photons by a beam-splitter. Measure the polarity of one and you know the polarity of the other.
