Quantum entanglement can't transmit information but a teleported entangled photon will change state with the source, instant morse code.

Been done, reason for posting.Binary digital age is ending.Things have changed, not instant but FTL. It's 3rd party observation that disconnects entanglement. http://www.engineering.com/DesignerEdge/DesignerEdgeArticles/Articl...

Nope. No instant Morse code. That statement contradicts itself. Over the years there have been numerous articles with teaser headlines about faster-than-light communications via quantum physics, but the articles invariably go on to explain why not.

When one entangled particle is measured to determine its state, such as its spin, it's found that the other entangled particle has the same state. You're simply measuring its state. But you can't take hold of a particle and, say, flip its spin state, and watch its entangled particle also flip. That WOULD provide instant Morse code, but it doesn't work that way. There's no "spooky ACTION at a distance", there's only perfectly reasonable identical states at a distance, the states being determined at the time of initial entanglement.
