If Alice and Bob had a large number of particles entangled together (with state of either 0 or 1), could Alice send information by breaking the entanglement of particles with state of 1 (by flipping the state for example) so that Bob measures 50% of particles to be in the state opposite of 0, that is 1, plus half of the remaining 50% to be in state of 1 (due to 50/50 chance for measurement of either state in the disentangled pairs) resulting in 75% of the states to be 1 - indicating that Alice has broke the entanglement, which would be the information (one bit)?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
