I want to know if there is any classical analogy for understanding quantum entanglement.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "This question does not appear to be about quantum computing or quantum information, within the scope defined in the help center." – Kiro, Sanchayan Dutta, Discrete lizard
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • $\begingroup$ This is a bit vague. What properties of quantum entanglement must be present in this classical 'object' (Algorithm? Hardware? Property of one of the previous? Something else?), for it to be the analogy you want? $\endgroup$ – Discrete lizard Apr 1 '18 at 14:36
  • $\begingroup$ @DiscreteLizard: I think, since quantum entanglement is a general property with a mathematical description, a similarly abstract answer about classical information would do. $\endgroup$ – Niel de Beaudrap Apr 1 '18 at 14:44
  • $\begingroup$ I think it will be easy to argue endlessly about the answer: In some sense (locality, realism) there is no analogue in classical physics whilst in another sense (correlated probabilities), there is. $\endgroup$ – pyramids Apr 1 '18 at 15:29
  • $\begingroup$ Is there any reason why this question should be here, rather than in physics? I don't see any computing here. $\endgroup$ – Kiro Apr 1 '18 at 15:51
  • $\begingroup$ I recommend going through this video by Veritasium and this excellent answer by @joshphysics on Physics SE. However, as such your question is off-topic here, as it is purely a physics question. $\endgroup$ – Sanchayan Dutta Apr 1 '18 at 16:36
