Quantum Entanglement is interesting, but Rapunzel was never my favorite.  I prefer Quantum Little Mermaidment.

tldr quantum mechanics is complicated -- if you think you understand it, you don't; but if you think you don't understand it, you do.

I'm thinking quantum entanglement might lead to FTL drives. We find some way to snag a particle from some distant spot that is entangled, build a quantum bridge between the two by using ( not discovered yet thing ) and scoot on down to entanglement town.

/ It could work.

nah

if you think you don't understand it, you especially don't

Nothing was as moving as Quantum Bambiment when his mom suddenly tunneled out of the forest.

I'm pretty sure she was acted on by an outside force

Unless everything is predetermined and all that "randomization" is illusion.

The Nobel was awarded for proving that to be incorrect.

I read the article. The experiments extended the probability to 30 standard deviations. It's very well established which is different from proof.

Unless I farked the math, the odds of something determined up to 30 standard deviations being a fluke is very close to being as unlikely as somebody creating your post by choosing letters completely at random.

I never said otherwise. I suspect the resolution is metaphysical or has no possible experiment to test. I imagine 30 standard deviations represents a number too large to fit on a blackboard.

The standard for particle physics is 5 sigma, or 99.99994%.

I think you'll agree that 30 sigma is quite a bit in excess of that.

Well, I suppose it would be more correct to say that the bullet tunneled through her.

If you both understand it and don't simultaneously in a superposition, you understand it better than anyone who thinks they understand it and someone who thinks they don't.

It's spooky.
