    Default Has the Quantum pseudo-telepathy experiment ever actually been done

    Quantum pseudo-telepathy is a principle under which a pair of people who are out of vausal contact could theoretically win certain types of games of chance involving two parties both guessing the same square by each measuring one of a pair of entangled particles and placing their bets based on the observation's outcome, thus synchronizing their bets without actually communicating with each other. I have not been able to find any definitive indication as to whether this is just a thought experiment or if the experiment has actually been done. Does anyone know?

    I fing the idea of this fascinating because its in a way a scientifically valid form of cleromancy.

    The wikipedia link you gave states "quantum pseudo-telepathy is a real-world phenomenon which can be verified experimentally." Thus, yes, it has been done. It is NOT the "casting of lots"... not cleromancy.

    It relies on an otherwise random phenomenon whose outcome has been constrained as to give a useful answer
