I still don't understand you, if you want 10 numbers in a sequence you
will need 10 entangles particles. You say I am the "receiver", I look in my box
and measure spin up, all that tell me is that the spin of the "transmitter"
particle must be spin down, no information has been communicated and
I have no way of knowing if you measured your particle or not . Actually it
is often ambiguous what is the transmitter and what is the receiver.
The point is that the spin on my particle is not going to change unless a
local external force of some sort interferes, and then the two particles
would no longer be entangled.
