this new theory views elementary particles as a region of space-time so intensely warped that it bends back upon itself like a knot. Such a knot necessarily contains a "closed time-like curve". This time-loop, which is also one of the puzzling features of general relativity, enables a particle to interact with other particles not only in its past but in its future. Consequently, a new way of looking at entanglement is that sub-atomic particles, by virtue of the time machines they contain, are not constrained by time. There is nothing to prevent instantaneous interactions between particles, no matter the distance between them.

Actually, the way I see it is that everytime you have a choice, like say, am I going to eat Hamburgurs or Fish, there is a universe where you chose Hamburgur and one where you chose Fish. So, everytime someone in the world has a choice at least one alternate universe appears. If you went back in time the number of universes would double from that point forward (one with the future you and one without) for each time you moved through time. All this assumes traveling back in time is possible.
If there are an infinite number of universes with every choice that every human could have ever made, where does the newly created universe from my time traveling come in?
