No. Quantum entanglment is purely Hilbert space concept related
with tensor product. Of course, 'ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny'
suggests that there is geometric counterpart for entanglement.
Join along boundaries for 3-surface makes interaction between them
possible and is excellent candidate for geometric prequisite
of quantum entanglement. Also linking certaily correlates
the quantum positions of two 3-surfaces and might imply entanglement
in position coordinates.
