Ken,

My Relativistic Symmetrical Interpretation (RSI) never defines or uses a probability for an experiment after it already has a known outcome! That would make no sense.

Suppose the experiment has been completed. Then the RSI postulates that the complex transition amplitude density phi*(x,t)psi(x,t) is the complete description of what happened. Note that the RSI does NOT call this a probability density!

Phi*(x,t) and psi(x,t) are (in general) complex, and not real. This is why I do not say they are both real between the measurements.

Does this clear up the confusion?

Regards,

Michael
