please do not laugh. i am only curious and want to learn. I read article about entanglement in scientific American for the first time just a few months ago. it was called "lights, camera, entanglement". then i read something about electron spin and how counterparts spin in exact opposite rotations. now for some reason when think i of these electrons and their counterparts i picture gears, wheels or spheres that have interlocking cogs with no space between them. when one gear spins the other immediately spins in the opposite direction. in this mental diagram i think of it as even and odd, all the odd spin one direction that is the same and all of the even spin in the exact opposite. you could line up and interlock as many gears as you wanted, the first odd gear will immediately effect the last even gear(which will spin in the opposite direction) in the sequence no matter how far apart they are from one another. of course this is oversimplified, but is it a good way to get a mental picture of how entanglement works?
