spacetime is comprised of a grid of discrete, equidistant points. when energy moves through the system, it does so from point to point, in a set amount of time.
when points become entangled, you end up with mass particles as seen in my pic. energy must flow to the point that follows, regardless of where it may have moved, which can result in a modified direction vector, a process that we know of as gravity. it takes a very large amount of entangled points to great a visible warping effect, which is why it is a weak force
if the energy wave hits the entangled point, it can get trapped inside, in a sort of quantum loop, and become heat energy.
