How is entanglement not "weird"? https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=321682&highlight=entanglement+socks" But explain to me how this is not weird: So 2 people receive a set of boxes, all the boxes are numbered and the 2 sets have the same numbers, the boxes have 3 doors, opening a door will cause the box to either flash red or blue. If person A and B open the same numbered box and the same door, it will flash the same color. If the boxes are "programmed" to flash the same color, a program for a box may be some thing like "blue, red, blue (a color for each door)", this may seem like an explanation to why the same boxes flash the same color for A and B. Here are all the possible combinations of the doors the can be opened by A and B (1 represents top door, 2 represents side door, etc.): (1,1),(1,2),(1,3),(2,1),(2,2),(2,3),(3,1),(3,2),(3,3). 9 combinations (1,1),(2,2),(3,3),(1,2),(2,1)-5 combinations These combinations will result in each box having the same color (since at least 2 of the doors have to be the same color, 1 and 2 are the same color) So if the boxes are "programmed", if randomly chosen, over 50% of the time the boxes will have the same color, because 5/9 is more than 50%. But that was obviously proven wrong and with experiments, over 50% of the time you did not get the same color. So if the particles aren't "programmed" or "predetermined", must not that mean there is some connection that allows them to have the same spin on the same axis? How is this connection not weird?
