Thanks for the discussion.

]]>As I said, I *have* read your paper. But you do not provide a proof of that claim there. I’m saying that if you try to prove it you will find that you will fail, because there is a constructive example of a model that satisfies 1 and 2 above and reproduces quantum correlations (namely quantum causal models). In fact people even study…[Read more]

]]>One of the ways around the conclusion of predetermination, even while assuming Macroreality, is the “passion at a distance” resolution à la Shimony: the measurement outcomes happen to be correlated in the appropriate way, but it is not that one of the outcomes causes the other, or objectively collapses the state of the distant…[Read more]

]]>Following up on our previous discussion, now that I’ve read your paper, can you provide a mathematical proof that assumptions 2 and 3 in your paper lead to predetermination of measurement outcomes?

Comments/criticism very welcome. ]]>

You say:

*I am guessing that your answer is “no” and that the only allowed possibilities are that Alice sees “+1” both times and that Bob sees “-1” both times, or visa versa.*

For the spacelike separated case you describe, “no” is indeed my answer.

Thank you for your response to my earlier posting. I had understood that

you were agreeing with Shan that Alice would expect 50% of her results to

be “+1”; this clarification eliminates my worry about a contradiction

between the expectations of Alice and Bob. Alice would say that each

individual result has a probability of 50%…[Read more] ]]>

A little clarification:

You say

Healey and Gao agree Alice expects the result “+1” only 50% of the time

.

In her situation prior to each of her individual measurements Alice expects each of its possible results to be equally likely. But in her situation prior to the whole sequence of her future measurements Alice expects eit…[Read more]

Healey and Shan Gao agree that Alice would expect to obtain the result

“+1” about 50% of the time. Let’s think about what Bob would expect

Alice’s results to be. I will suppose, to make the story more

definite, that Bob’s own measurement has the result “-1”.
