This question already has an answer here:
when I was first introduced to entanglement I was told that "it is a phenomena that allows information to be transmitted faster than light", however, as I kept reading up on it, this seemed to be an oversimplified model to the extent of inaccuracy. I now find that there is a rule that says information cannot be transmitted this way... why? I understand that transmitting information via entanglement breaks relativity (in the sense that it means information can be transmitted then light). But surely things like the information loss paradox etc. have counter intuitive names if no information can actual be gained from these mechanisms. So, is there an intuitive way of explaining why no information can be transmitted this way (or if it can), other than it breaks down other theories.?
