How does quantum entanglement occur in your models?

Two global Wolfram model states are said to be “entangled” if they share a common ancestor in the multiway evolution graph. Since spacelike-locality is not a necessary condition for branchlike-locality, it is possible for these states to be causally connected (i.e. to be connected in the multiway causal graph) even if they are not spatially local. This is the essence of quantum entanglement as it occurs, for instance, in the context of Bell’s theorem.
