In book 2 of Peter Hamilton's Salvation sequence, there is some talk about elements having tried to subvert the key portal teleportation technology, similar to his FTL/wormhole trains in previous books. Also very close to the gates in Hyperion.
"Quantum spatial entanglement is not something we have any record of" XXX said. "That may be to prevent the YYY from acquiring the technology or it may be genuinely unique to your species (humans)".
Thing is, the bad YYY aliens do have gate technology, and XXX specifically warns humans about it in book 1. And as far as I could tell it operates under the same constraints as the human version. The human version is entirely based on the popular meme of quantum particle entanglement, the demonstrated real life synchronicity of some aspect of 2 distant particles' quantum attributes. So what is supposed to be special about humanity's version of that tech? It's a bit like saying that only humans discovered Bernoulli's lift equations, but many species fly airplanes nevertheless.
Book 1 is a bit of a whodunnit, so I have tried to avoid spoilers with XXX/YYY.
