Entanglement and its consequences

Einstein used to argue with Niels Bohr and with John Bell that entanglement was impossible beyond the quantum world. At times he seemed unsure, in spite of its plausible relation to the double- slit theory and wave particle duality.  How entanglement from one particle here to millions of light years away, how that  is extrapolated from wave-particle duality at the quantum level is not clear to me.  What seems more clear is Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle.  But perhaps that priniciple also works within long distance entanglement.  Ultimately everything in quantum and cosmic dimensions seems “bizarre and spooky, ” to borrow Einstein’s descriptions. What could be more bizarre than Big Bang theory, that the whole universe has emerged and is still emerging from a quantum fluctuation plasma?
