This is why people say that if we accept conventional quantum mechanics we need to give up one of these deeply held beliefs. As even Schrodinger ultimately admitted, we can't get rid of "these damned leaps" (with apologies to your blog motto).<br />Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8148573551417578681.post-83141719049172169252015-11-07T17:47:21.006-08:002015-11-07T17:47:21.006-08:00I am just trying to defend conventional quantum me...I am just trying to defend conventional quantum mechanics, but it is confusing, and I will try to post a better explanation.Rogerhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03474078324293158376noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8148573551417578681.post-22315404017467527522015-11-07T08:05:44.582-08:002015-11-07T08:05:44.582-08:00You wrote: "The actual electrons may be dete...You wrote: "The actual electrons may be deterministic and separable." Could you explain how, for example, the electrons in the classic EPR (Bohm) experiment could give results consistent with quantum mechanics, and still be deterministic and separable? Yes, there is always the possibility of what's called super-determinism, but I think you've dismissed that as a bizarre idea with few followers, so I assume you have something else in mind. Could you explain what you have in mind?Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8148573551417578681.post-4790313363087039102015-11-04T14:36:57.200-08:002015-11-04T14:36:57.200-08:00Bell's Theorem is simple set theory, but rubbi...Bell's Theorem is simple set theory, but rubbish physics. Entanglement is a mathematical fiction that is good enough to calculate QM statistics, but does not represent physical reality. Joy Christian has shown (in 2007) that Bell's error is a mistaken 3D topology. Quaternion math is necessary to model 3D statistics which Bell cavalierly consigned to a 1D formula. Physics has been on a bogus 50-year detour.
