Getting back to the question I asked earlier in the thread:
Can anyone tell me how the current experiments on entangled particles are being conducted? How can they know for sure that the "communication" between the particles is faster than light? Because apparently they do know this. What is the exact methodology of the tests?
In my mind, t goes back to the quantum slit experiments. If you pass a single electron through 2 slits, then it shows interference, i.e. it is a wave. So it has not been determined, it exists in an indeterminate state and we can tell that it is is an indeterminate state because it shows interference. But if we put a detector at the slits to see which one it passed through, it no longer shows interference, i.e. its multiple wave-states have "collapsed" down to a single state and it is now acting as a particle instead of a wave.
So say we have 2 entangled particles. As long as both of them are in wave form, they both continue to behave that way, but when one of them is collapsed to particle form then the other one collapses immediately (to an opposite state, phase=up instead of down or something like that). So we take one particle, take it across the universe and keep passing it through slits, it keeps showing up as a wave. Then at some point the partner particle is detected so it collapses to a particle state, and then the paired particle also collapses to a particle state and no longer exhibits wave behaviors. So that is point "A" of our communication as posited in the OP.
Please tell me where I'm wrong on this.
