Quantum entanglement is one of the most fascinating and mysterious phenomena in nature. It needs no interactions, or any sort of exchange for it to take place. It is possible, not against any rules of physics as far as we know, that all matter that was created in the early universe was in an entangled state.

The question is:

Is it possible to explain the uniformity and isotropy of matter in the universe, by means of quantum entanglement in the early 'days' of universe? If that could be possible, would it mean that there would be no need for the inflationary model any more?

If this problem has been researched in detail, any references posted will be appreciated.

Wow! (+1), interesting idea! Another question is giving it a definite shape: how that entanglement, what observational consequences, etc. But as a starting point it seems to me brilliant! –  Eduardo Guerras Valera Apr 24 '13 at 0:52
+1, great and interesting question! –  Thriveth Aug 14 '13 at 9:08
