# Ok. In quantum counterfactual communication, from what I can see, there’s STILL a channel connecting things but they’re either turned off, or blocked in some way. That something transmits down a communication channel that’s not a particle but a probability doesn’t surprise me in that there is *something* connecting them, even if nothing detectable is transmitted. I want to find an example where there is nothing connecting them physically. I saw examples where a mirror was removed to prevent reflection of the other half of of a wave returning to source… but it seems it’s still pointed in the proper direction, even if the mirror is removed, so a collapse of a wave at regular intervals “as if” there was a mirror there is also not surprising: The ANGLE is correct to reach communication and so why wouldn’t it be greater than 50% probability that a reflection of the angle would show up as if there had been a mirror even without a physical mirror? No, no. Give me a “nothing at all connects these things” situation. Pointed in the wrong direction, but not a “perfectly wrong” direction either. I’m not taking away from a “wow” as it’s really cool that an angle is preserved without a measurable particle being transmitted… but… it’s otherwise going down a normal channel that exists in some fashion (pointed the correct way or a wire that’s shut off otherwise).
