Government detects nonlocality via voting

In summary, the thread was closed for Moderation because it does not seem to qualify as a reasonable discussion.

Suppose a system which looks at votation of each citizen, answers being yes/no coded as 1,-1. Since a lot of people vote it gives an average value that is encoded as an angle ##\theta##, the score 50/50 corresponding then to ##\pi/2## since the average with 1,-1 were 0.

Then one has the functions ##A(n),B(n)## and hence if the covariance ##cov(\theta)=\sum_nA(n)B(n)## is bigger than the linear one after a big number of votation, like Bell's theorem seems to indicate, then this would mean that A and B were entangled.

What would it mean in reality that two people were quantumly linked ?

Sounds like numerology to me.

Right, the angle depends on n, so it should be made by a computer, storing the product of vote n in a table divinding theta.

Hypothetically, if there were some quantum "signal" of interest coming from a person that you could measure, and there was a provable unexpected correlation between person A's quantum "signal" and person B's, that correlation could still be due to a shared correlation with an environmental condition.

Yes that's exactly that, the angles ##\theta_n## are given by the whole social environnement, and in fact it is not a sum but an average of the A and B results over past choices while the angle is given by the whole population at each votation.

After a long Mentor discussion, the thread will remain closed. It appears to be misplaced in the SciFi forum to try to skirt the PF rules for valid sources and reasonable discussions, and does not qualify to be moved to one of the technical forums.
