Hello, I'm new to the community here at Physics Forums. I am an undergrad double majoring in mathematics/computer science. I will soon be enrolled in a double masters for both math and comp sci...and eventually would like to enroll in a physics PhD program. Well then, enough about me...here are my thoughts. From what ive researched on quantum entanglement it seems that the pair of electrons or particles entangled will be instantly changing spin according to its entangled partner. Now, the idea of sending information by the entangled particles has been refuted it seems by much of the academic community. It seems as though people suggest that no information is sent, rather the communication between the particles is instant...few suggest that IF there is information being sent, it must be traveling over 10,000 times faster than light. Now, to the point...does it even matter if quantum entanglement is sending information or not? Let me give an example: Lets say two photons are entangled. One is in New York and the other in LA. Now, regardless if any information is being sent between the particles, could we not just utilize the 'spin' of the electrons to communicate with servers? For instance, a spin will be 'up' or 'down'. Well, in binary (machine language) the options that a computer understands is either 0 or 1. So could we not just find arbitrary points in time and say one electron spin is up while its entangle partner's spin is down...and have the computer understand this? Thus, sending information instantly or perhaps to some, 10,000 times faster than light. One could write an operating system that understood this, thus revolutionizing information being sent by large distances, and more efficiently. Please, give me your thoughts.
