Can we entangle two photons that are separated by vast distances?  What would be the location reference for the distant end?  If we can arbitrarily entangle distant particles could we cue the creation of another entanglement from the measured destruction of an original pair? Thus an unending stream of information is enabled.

Just think how it would logically work... use the existing facts and theories to figure it out. Thats how you learn.

Our understanding of particle entanglement is not complete.  We measure particles for entanglement.  In systems with over 200 particles we can be quite certain of entanglement.  What we need is a mechanism for the near end to generate a new entanglement at the far end paired with a new near end particle.  We predict entanglement between a far end particle and near end generated particle.  We cause the new entanglement by stimulating a near end particle, generate the new pair, and keep the process going.  Probability will predict the far end link, new pair entanglement will confirm the relationship.  The remaining question is how to entangle a new pair from an original pair.

As many experiments that have gone on in Quantum Entanglement, what anomalies have been seen in the physics of the experiments?  Have they ever induced a new Quantum Entanglement from an original Quantum Entanglement, but couldn't reproduce it, since they did not know how it was derived? I'm interested in any experiments that show serial Quantum Entanglements.
