What properties would quantum entangled black holes have?

Assume these are microscopic quantum black holes – either artificial or natural – and there is enough mass inside to stabilize them. Assume that these two or more black holes somehow came into a quantum entangled state – either during their formation – or by some other means.
Assume they are LIGHT YEARS apart.
What properties would they have?
How would a particle falling into one black hole affect the other?
Saying that entangled black holes would make no sense is taking the easy way out.
QUANTUM black holes would have the mass of an asteroid or smaller – and be about the size of an atom or molecule.
Assume that entanglement occurs while they are in proximity to each other, but over a period of time that involves millions of years, they are now light years apart.
Einstein’s famous question: “What would a beam of light look like if you could travel at the speed of light?” probably didn’t make sense either at the time.


  1. Hi. Gee, that’s a good question although you have lots of assumptions. OK, assuming all the constraints you have put on these two objects I’ll make a stab at the particle part. (I can not image what properties they would have.) A particle falling into one of the two should also be entangled. One has to assume that the crossing of the event horizon, no matter how small in radius, would cause the other particle to change according to duality. The concept is easier if you consider entangled PARTICLES. Now I’m going off to think.
    Long live the American flag.

  2. Your assumptions are physically nonsensical.
    Spontaneous black hole formation requires around 6 solar masses. Quantum entanglement is a two particle phenomenon. There is no theoretical prospect of forming a black hole from a single fundamental particle. Quantum entanglement requires the two particles to be part of the same system – which means that they cannot start off light years apart.
    And why would you then ask about other particles falling into this black hole – if they are not quantum entangled then nothing extraordinary would happen to them at all. They would just fall in.
    What happens when one of a pair of quantum entangled particles falls into a black hole is, however, interesting. It has implications for entropy.

  3. Entanglement is an interesting phenomena which can be observed in isolated quantum mechanical systems. Correlated properties just mean the measurement of a certain property in one particle or photon guarantees what you will get in the other, even though neither has a predetermined value. However, the macroscopic world is so noisy that any entanglement is almost instantly cashed-in by the continuous wave collapses induced by gazillions of quantum mechanical events continuously occurring on the big stage.
    In the area of extremely small time intervals, so-called jiffy time, the amount of uncertainty in the localized energy concentration is so great that black holes may be continuously forming and evaporating. Perhaps there is some possibility of correlated black holes on this level, which might for instance have spins which are correlated. Might be some interesting theoretical considerations, but doubt it would ever make it into our kitchens or cars.
