Fig. 6

From a classical description of the experimental situation to the present modeling. The experimental situation depicted in Fig. 3 is generalized in this figure by using the parameter d which varies with the degree of independence of the probabilistic expectations on the outcome assigned to O and O’. The values of the two areas with impossible situations (direct relationship for one observer and reverse relationship for the other one) are calculated as: p – (p 2 + d) = p × (1 – p) – d = pqd. For d = 0, correlations between labels and biological outcomes emerge and, for d = pq, the probability of a direct relationship is equal to p as in classical probability. Ω, probability space
