Temporal Entanglement and the Phenomena of Single Particle Interference

Single particle interference has been widely observed for both microscopic particles [1, 2], as well as macroscopic objects [3]. Feynman already showed that such phenomena are absolutely impossible to explain in any classical way [4]. Based on the Re-creation Principle of the Single Monad Model which was first proposed in 2005 [5], this article proposes a new concept of “temporal entanglement” and shows how it can be applied to explain both the normal multi-particle and this peculiar single particle interference. It is shown that in both cases one wave function describes the superposition of the two states of the two interfering particles, or waves, but in normal interference this superposition is spatial while in the second case it is temporal, i.e. the states of the two interfering particles are entangled through time. Both spatial and temporal entanglements are only possible due to the fact that both particles are always simultaneously connected through the Single Monad, which is exactly what gives them the nature of waves and uncertainty, and the very act of observation of one of them causes the collapse of the wave function, thus determining the behaviour of the second particle whether they were separated in space or in time. The temporal entanglement concept can also explain other peculiar quantum interference experiments, such as “which path” and Wheeler's delayed choice quantum eraser [6].
