Pls explain how to extract an entangled stated from the quantum vacuum (past-future entanglement)

The proposal is for an experiment where 2 quantum systems (qubits) are entangled w/o ever having interacted either directly or indirectly except via the quantum vacuum.

Phys. org. article.

Original article as published in Physical Review Letters.

Since no one responded, I’ve done a little more research and found some information in the popular press that may be helpful. This article in Technology Review is a little vague but does help to clarify a few points.

First they explain that normally entanglement is understood to violate the principle of locality by operating instantaneously over vast distances - although to some extent this can be seen as a matter of interpretation.

They then explain that it can also act in a similar fashion across time. So you could have one quantum circuit that encodes a qubit while also creating the information needed to decode it. Later, another detector in the same area of space could retrieve the information and decode the qubit.

This is a quibble with the article and not you allotrope.

So what? Using gravity and time dilation and known science we can travel into the future right now!

You have to present in between.
