[ I'm not a physics grad, so salt cellar at the ready. ]

FWIW, I thought the explanation reminiscent of the EPR
(Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen) paradox, which is, as you say, an aspect of
QM (and a very interesting one, linked to the idea of FTL
communication); don't know how it connects to tunneling, though.
