Suppose you had 1000 GHZ triplets (1000 As, 1000 Bs, and 1000 Cs each in their own A-B-C entangled groups). We put the As in one location, and their B-C counterparts in another location. We measure the As.

A portion of the entangled groups are "lost", meaning they are no longer entangled and the measurements of their B-C partners will be random. However, the entangled ones will yield B-C pairs that are 00 or 11.

Couldn't we figure out a way to minimize the number that are lost resulting in a statistically significant percent of the B-C pairs as 00 or 11, thereby providing a way for FTL communication?

An answer of "no, FTL communication is not possible" does not help explain what is wrong with the proposal. Explaining how FTL is not possible with one triplet does not help either. An answer of, "you understood the meaning of lost correctly, but 99.9% are lost and always will be, we can not improve upon this because ..." would help. An answer of, "measuring A does not make it more likely that B-Cs will be 00 or 11, and this is because the real meaning of GHZ 3 particle entanglement is ..." would help.

After a few weeks I still haven't received any response so I'm trying this community. Any help?

Thanks.
