One does not know the state of anything until it is measured.

And if two entities are mutually exclusive, measuring one and discovering its state simply means the other was the opposite all along.

Or does the one measured tell its mutually exclusive partner what to be? And if the communication is instantaneous, it still takes the speed of light to measure it.

I still can't get my head around Bell's theorem though, it seems mutually exclusive to my level of intellect.

Half joking/half confused could that be defined as some kind of entanglement?
