On a happier note - and more in keeping with the topic of this thread.
The way in which the equations of GR (and hence the structure of spacetime, and of course the operation of gravity) can be generated by quantum entanglement is currently at the frontier of physics research. It has been in journals for a while and now increasingly as popularisations. Here is a readable but not dumbed down account from Swingle:
Like any developing new idea, it does not yet solve all the problems, but many have hope.
It makes sense that entanglement - all about interactions that define identity, should generate spacetime. But, if you take this view, quantum weirdness becomes the thing from which all else is constructed, not some unpleasant unphysical idea to try and get round with semi-classical jiggery pokery.
You can see from 2019 citations that it is getting quite some traction:
