<< From what I've read about quantum communication, you can't use it to send
information from point A to point B. I'm of the opinion that a lot of the
spooky 'action at a distance' arises from the experimenters interpretation
of quantum phenomena rather than the phenomena themselves.

I've noticed that a lot of the same questions keep coming up. Maybe we
ought to consider a FAQ.

It makes sense that people would ask. I honestly have not dug out the physics
articles so I would say my knowledge on this is sketchy at best. I seem to
recall that the real question was how this would work with something besides
photons--and how the correlation degrades with distance.
