Amazingly, when I search google all I find is this question =)

Are you thinking of “local correlation”?

Yeah, that’s it. Sorry about that. I realize its a google question, but I just don’t understand.

No worries, I have no idea what it is either, I couldn’t make heads or tails of any of the links I found =)

Old question, but heck, I can give idea if anyone is following this:

I would think, with points A and B, and the word **local**, of quantum mechanics, in particular Bell’s theorem (wikipedia). But understanding that, and worse, explaining it (clearly): that’s going to be hard. Let me just say that Einstein didn’t buy this particular effect of quantum mechanics.

Well, or you just wanted to know something else, more in the direction of (general) relativity.
