I mean more than that. It's not that the photon is set at a certain

angle and we just don't know what it is, the polarization angle does

not exist, or if you prefer, all polarization angles exist until the

instant the photon hits the filter.

You're missing the point. I'll be generous, I'll give you infinite sequences with

no argument, it won't help you a bit, you still won't be able to make boxes as

I have described.

You can't just conjure up 4 boxes unless you spell out exactly how

they're entangled. In my original specifications I said things like

"If one box is set at X then the other box [...]", if there are only

2 boxes then the meaning is clear, if there are 4 boxes then it is not clear.

I'm not saying 4 boxes could not be entangled, but the rules describing their

behavior would be much more complicated and I doubt it would bring much

clarity to the experiment.

Yes but it's not my logic, I don't pretend to understand why things work that

way, as Richard Feynman said, nobody understands quantum mechanics.

However the universe doesn't care if I think any of this makes sense or

not because that's the way things do work, there is absolutely no doubt,

and all you need is a filter that moves in 30 degree increments.
