Towards an Objective Physics of Bell Non-Locality: Palatial Twistor Theory

Roger Penrose Submitted to “Quantum Nonlocality and Reality – 50 Years of Bell’s theorem” In 1964, John Stewart Bell famously demonstrated that the laws of standard quantum mechanics demand a physical world that cannot be described entirely according to local laws.  The present article argues that this non-locality must be gravitationally related, as it comes about only with quantum state… Read more →

Lessons of Bell’s Theorem: Nonlocality, yes; Action at a distance, not necessarily.

Wayne C. Myrvold Submitted to “Quantum Nonlocality and Reality – 50 Years of Bell’s theorem” Fifty years after the publication of Bell’s theorem, there remains some controversy regarding what the theorem is telling us about quantum mechanics, and what the experimental violations of Bell inequalities are telling us about the world. This chapter represents my best attempt to be clear… Read more →
