what interests me the most of these things is quantum entanglenment

an instant effect even gazillions of lightyears away

doesnt this question causality since the cause-effect are instant?

take this monty hall variation that questions the nature of the arrow of time:

there are four doors just one with a prize

remember: THERES A 1/2 ODD THE PRIZE IS ON AN EVEN OR ODD DOOR

The host discards one door

now according chance you have 1/3 chance to win since there are 3 left doors

not really remember there WAS a 50% cahnce to be the price in odd or pair door

so if the host discarded and odd door you pick the other odd one if a pair you chose the other pair

on this way you hold all the pair or even doors so according the satblished original rule theres a 50% chacne to win not 33.333%
