thank you very much for your comments. It’s nice to get feedback from someone who is so skilled in this area.
Let me try to briefly respond to your points:
1) You are right, the model – as it stands with the 1st order dynamics – is actually not time-symmetric! That’s why I also had to change the title btw. 😉
I don’t think the…[Read more]
Dear Reinhard (if I may call you Reinhard),
there seems to be a misunderstanding. Of Course, according to Bohmian mechanics, macroscopic objects are composed of microscopic (Bohmian) particles. And indeed, as Travis explains, the empirical content of the theory is in the position/configuration of macroscopic objects, including measurement…[Read more]
That the Bohmian trajectories are (in principle) unobservable is, of course, a very common objection against Bohmian mechanics. This objection is usually based on two things: 1. a positivist dogma and 2. a misunderstanding of the logical relationship between Bohmian mechanics and Quantum mechanics.
You also seem to misunderstand the spirit and…[Read more]

I’d like to contribute a paper of mine in which I discuss a toy-model exploring the possibility to account for nonlocal correlations violating Bell’s inequality by advanced (retrocausal) interactions on the microscopic scale. You can find the abstract below.
To me, this model is quite interesting and instructive because
a) it allows for a…[Read more]
