Quantum communications?

     Isn't that process you describe similar in many respects to "ansible"
communication (Ursula LeGuin ref.)?? If I recall correctly, two particles are
given identical properties and then moved apart great distances. Then by
modulating the spin (or other quantum) characteristics of one of the
particles, it affects the twin exactly the same, regardless of distance, and
hence a communication device independent of the speed of light or relative
distance. Can anyone expand on this or tell me if I am off base in this
subject? I am by far no expert, just a big scifi fan!
