Suppose, you have a coin. You then dig two holes: one on Earth, one on Mars and ask a passerby to hide the coin in one of these two holes without telling you in which one.

Now we have a situation: we do not know where the coin is. And we know that it is 50% chance that it can be found in eithe hole. So psi-finction of a coin has two equal peaks: one around hole on Mars and one around hole on Earth.

Now you gather a croud and claim that you can demonstrate latest discovery in physics - "superluminal collapce of a psi function".

You dig a hole on Earth and look at it and INSTYANTLY predict EXACTLY the position of the coin WITHOUT going to Mars and even without communicating with Mars. So, instead of two equal peaks (50%, 50%), now psi-function INSTANTLY collapsed into one 100% peak. Because the distance to Mars is large, it collapses SUPERLUMINALLY.

Cheers, applauses, some money in a hat, and even possible grants to investigate "in depth" and to built "instant teleportation", and "superluminal transportation" system.
