How can you say that two variables are "statistically independent
events" if they are deterministic functions of the *same* variable
mu? Not only that, you have a *formula* for computing script-A
and script-B, and according to that formula, script-A is equal
to the negative of script-B.

You gave a *formula* for script-A in terms of a and mu,
and a formula for script-B in terms of b and mu. Those
formulas imply that it's *always* the case that
script-A = - script-B.

You are saying that for all other values of a and b,
the formulas for script-A and script-B are incorrect?

Once again, what you have written is:

(1) script-A = +1 if mu = +I
(2) script-A = -1 if mu = -I
(3) script-B = -1 if mu = +I
(4) script-B = +1 if mu = -I
(5) mu is always equal to +I or -I

>From 1-5, it seems to me to follow that script-A = - script-B.

It seems that that conclusion is not affected by whether space
is the 3-sphere, or a 2-sphere, or a Klein bottle, or a Mobius
strip, or discrete. It follows from classical logic, and is
independent of the particular details of the topology of the
world.
