    were a constitutent of Haroche's Nobel prize work, might (I am not sure) be thought of as teleportation, inasmuch as an entangled photon exits a resonant cavity, carrying with it information concerning the state of the cavity, which is read out by detecting (and destroying) the state of the photon, but without destroying the remote cavity state.  

    Nothing here (nor in quantum entanglement generally) to disturb special relativity.  The only recent (non)  event in that category was the (now debunked) report of a faster-than-light neutrino.  This had nothing to do with entanglement or teleportation.  One reason I thought it bogus from the start was that the excess speed was quite tiny, which suggested some sort of systematic error, rather than new physics.

    I am not a physicist by training, but I publish my work in physics journals (Physical Review, Journal of Chemical Physics).

      and an honor to have youand a few others post on this thread.  Quantum Physics is a hobby of mine.  Do you hold out any hope for tachyons being discovered OR is it possible that tachyons and the higgs boson particle are the same?

          Heisenberg may have meant...well, not so sure.

          Thanks for posting and providing the occasion!
