Hey Harv,

That example I gave of your explanation of that thought experiment:

A results:

U, D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D
U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D
U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D
U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D
U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D, U,U

B results:

D, U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U
D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U
D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U
D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U
D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U,D,U, D,D

It looks like a CCD (charged couple device)?

In a CCD; information can only be obtained by shifting it along all the potential wells to the end and extracting it at the end.

There seems to be an issue re: the roles of "who goes first, who goes second" and "this" and "that".

Do you start with A or with B or both? By definition if you start with both they are in instant communication with you?

If one "goes first"; then A and B are defined not only as A and B but as for example "A first, B second".

But as they are also "A" and "B", not just "first" and "second"; A could have been second and B could have been first.

-Regards,

Alan
