### Simpson's Paradox and Quantum Entanglement

Are some mental illnesses resultants of paradoxes ?
Would Freud have loved to have been able to un[en]tangle
the knotted threads of spatio-temporal memories and
re-weave them into a consistent associative space-time map
for the patient to orient themselves in ?
Simpson's Paradox
Simpson's Paradox is a statistical artifact related to
hidden variables. Here it in terms of quantum entanglement.
Given that
1) A and B are complementary
2) A and B are both true XOR A and B are both false
then, that 1) contradicts 2) is the essence of Simpson's Paradox.
We can make an arbitrary determination that "A is True"
to resolve that paradox, but this choice is arbitrary as we could
equally have chosen to make the determination that
"B is True". Regardless of the choice we can then instantly
determine the complementary variables state as "anti-correlated".
Similarly, in entanglement the arbitrary measurement of
a polarization or spin state will instantly (non-locally)
determine the state of the anti-correlated entangled twin.
