Right, that's why the consensus is that entanglement cannot be used for FTL communication.
It doesn't matter what intricate system you build around it, we always have to verify the manipulations to make sense of the results, and this will
always require classical communication.
I wont even mention that no FTL anything is going on with entanglement, not even instantanious action at a distance, it merely appears to us like
The communication wouldn't be faster than light speed
, it would be instantaneous.
You can't get faster than that, unless you can manipulate Quantum mechanics and effects to allow faster than Instantaneous (FTI) speeds...that would
involve sending a Quantum packet into the past or into the future in order to communicate with the past, or indeed our future with our present.
(there is actually mainstream theories regarding Quantum entanglement operating not just over distance, but through time)
Regarding your point about dropback from Quantum to Classical to enable interaction with the Qbit...that's exactly what the effect would rely
I obviously didn't explain my thinking well enough.
The 'Locally generated' Quantum particles (at both ends of the communication line) would be REQUIRED to dropback into classical realms of physics,
in order for us to interrogate the Quantum information being sent and recieved.
The action by which this could be achieved, would be the particles dropping from Quantum to Classical that we locally use to intercept those that are
the actual signal, would themselves return to a Classical state as soon as we tried to read or decode them (by any means)...it is deciphering the
pattern or sequence of those particles that are showing up as classical, and hence readable - that would allow 'break in' to the Quantum signal
being sent, without disturbing it or causing it to become classical...as we wouldn't be observing or interacting with the original signal...only the
locally generated signal purposely designed to dropback into a classical and readable state.
IOW, the locally generated Quantum particles acts as a Quantum interrogator, and drops back to become a Classical signal that we can read.
Still doesn't make a lot a sense does it?
It's hard to take abstract concepts directly out of my head and order them into understandable text.
Ahh well...it was only an idea.
