Interesting. It seems that although entanglement breaking the speed of light is technically untrue, we could make these inferences 'as if' they were quicker than the speed of light. Instead of measuring the differences between the states of the two items, we're able to make that inference instantly. So although it's not faster than the speed of light, our measurements operate as though they were. 

I think my misunderstanding comes from the inability to put this operation into practice. But as per my original argument, if electrons were simply more concentrated waves which behave like particles, determining a full theory of everything that incorporates the quantum is possible. Computing power aside, having these roadblocks in place do not seem sufficient to keep our current theoretical knowledge as is. The most famous example was the conventional wisdom of the ether, which general relativity broke. Ignorance is bliss. 

Pissed I missed this. Hope it went well. 

Thanks for linking this. Seems like I was arguing from an incorrect premise. What sources do you know of where I can learn/understand more about quantum theory?

Regarding the NRC, I think regulation is justified in mitigating the risks that are extremely devastating. For instance, mandating zoning specifications that reduce the spread of potential nuclear waste runoff, requiring maintenance protocols, quality assurance, etc. of all the transport processes inside and out of the plant. 

In conclusion, I think these measures, though resulting in a significant increase in costs, justify the widespread disasters that could ensue at each stage. Were these not to be in place, there's no doubt construction and performance protocols would be more lenient in their assessment of potential risk. At the very least, the population of these potential disasters increase with every additional plant. So our reduction of larger scale calamity is reduced by only having those plants that can be well maintained. 

Correct. It doesn't violate the limit yet they communicate as though they were violating it. It achieves communication by different means scarcely understood. We can achieve accurate predictions using entanglement. Information can be currently be communicated through qubits in quantum computers. 

Right, you are correct, as the our current theoretical understanding puts it. It could still be the case that this speed limit is imposed, but the goal of reaching point B from point A is still actualized.

What Einstein Got Wrong About the Speed of Light | Time

I think your analysis relies on the assumption that the Einsteinian speed limit is definite, which by current run of the mill physics, geometric unity is up in the air. So whether this is possible could be a break-point, but technological maturity could still break this barrier in forms of entanglement, for instance, granted this is not constrained by the 'ultimate physics' of the universe.
