    To my post on The EPR paradox (Sorry folks I made a

    Yes, it is entanglement. One thing which is
    surprising in entanglement is that all particles
    created at the time of the Big Bang *were* entangled.
    Thus the universe as a whole is one single FTL
    communication system.

    I was aware that the there were plans for using
    entanglement for simple calculations I did not know
    that they had proceeded.

    Regarding the teleportation approach, have a look at

    D. Boschi, S. Branca, F. De Martini, L. Hardy and S.
    Popescu: "Experimental Realization of Teleporting an
    Unknown Pure Quantum State via Dual Classical and
    Einstein-Podolski-Rosen Channels",
    submitted to Physical Review Letters, Los Alamos
    preprint archive quant-ph/9710013.
