Anybody see the Quantum entanglement show on Nova last night? Pretty interesting.
"With the help of two extremely bright quasars located more than 7 billion light-years away, researchers recently bolstered the case for quantum entanglement — a phenomenon Einstein described as "spooky action at a distance" — by eliminating one classical alternative: The freedom-of-choice loophole.

Quantum connection

Of the many mindboggling facets of quantum mechanics, one of the most intriguing is the idea of quantum entanglement. This occurs when two particles are inextricably linked together no matter their separation from one another. Although these entangled particles are not physically connected, they still are able to share information with each other instantaneously — seemingly breaking one of the most hard-and-fast rules of physics: No information can be transmitted faster than the speed of light.

As far-out as the idea seems, quantum entanglement has been proven time and time again over the years. When researchers create two entangled particles and independently measure their properties, they find that the outcome of one measurement influences the observed properties of the other particle." http://www.astronomy.com/news/2018/0...m-entanglement

I suffer from Quantum Entanglement. I always know precisely when Rich Hawley is misbehaving... not matter where I am.

It's a high potential technology, but I fear practical applications are a long, long way off. FTL communication with space colonies, probes or ships would revolutionise space travel. imagine not having to wait hours to communicate with Voyager or New Horizons.

The problem with this theorem of quantum entanglement confirmation is those 2 supposedly quasars are not 7 billion light years away. You see in actuallity, they are just a few dozen light years beyond pluto, where if you travelled there, you will meet a cardboard wall.

Well it is not a wall, rather it is part of a sphere that surrounds our solar system. There are various holes in the sphere where the light shines through from a variety of lamps outside the container. They were placed there by the "Masters," a group of benevolent rainbow colored squids who keep us as pets.

The reason C:Amie knows my whereabouts constantly is due to harmonic brain wave absorbtion. We share a common psychic frequency, along with a dolphin, shetland pony, and several frogs that live in the Amazon.

I could go into it in depth, but I'm not sure anyone would understand the complexities…

Did Mexico pay for that wall? (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

Sounds like the Heisenberg effect by proxy.

It also sounds like a possible time-travel pathway, since tachyons (particles traveling faster than the speed of light) arrive at their destination before they leave their point of origin. (Or could that be the link between the entangled particles, since that would result in the object briefly being in two places at the same time? I dunno if I'm making sense - it's been almost 40 years since I took college physics.)

So if your flying the speed of light and you shoot a gun forward, how fast is the bullet travelling?

When I'm having sex, my wife finishes before I'm even getting started…does that fit in here somewhere?

Ignoring the infinite amount of energy required to do that and the view that the bullet would be converted into mass instead of momentum. From your perspective the bullet would fire as relative to you the bullet is moving at around the speed of sound. To anyone else watching, the bullet would never ever fire.

I think in practice a real physicist would point out that it'll never be possible for anything with any mass to reach light speed, therefore even if you got to 99.999r% the speed of light, there would always be more 0.0009999999r steps that would allow the bullet to physically escape from you.

On your second analogy. Women scientists would say that is equally impossible

I've been studying a bit of quantum mechanics from the Quantum Computation and Quantum Information: 10th Anniversary Edition.

I've read in a book that traders nowadays use microwaves to actually send information faster than light.

Some topics of interest in these articles below:
https://electronics.howstuffworks.com/future-tech/information-travel...
https://archive.nytimes.com/www.nytimes.com/library/national/science...

I feel that just because Einstein determined that the speed of light is the fastest doesn't mean it can be proven wrong...

I'm not sure about that, HPC:Fan. I think what Einstein was trying to say was that the speed of light is the speed of time.

The speed of light is the maximum speed of information exchange/propagation in the relativistic universe.
