Main Question or Discussion Point

If we make a measurement, does that mean that the outcome of the measurement gets correlated with the measured value?

??? What is the difference between "the outcome of the measurement" and "the measured value"? How are they not the same thing?

Perhaps I should say "the value (of the thing) being measured" instead of "measured value".

And how is the "measured value" different from "the value being measured"? This thread is closed.
If you want to start a new thread in which your question is stated more precisely, you may - but I suggest citing the mathematical definition of the word "correlation" when you do.
