Quote from: QuantumClue on 15/01/2011 01:55:49GeezerI cannot help but read this last one as invoking perhaps some kind of determinism, is this what you are hinting at?I wouldn't really know  but I don't think that's what I mean to imply. I'm wondering if there could be some sneaky false assumption in the logic, although I can't imagine how that would get past so many clever scientists. I asked the question more because I don't fully understand it myself than as a direct challenge to the experiment.However, as you bring it up, if there was some sort of determinism at play, would the experiment point to that as a possible explanation?

What did you mean by ''ignoring us?'' Can you be a tad more technical mate?
By the way, Quantumclue also mentions Fred Allan Wolf. I would recommend taking anything from Dr. Wolf with a large dose of skepticism. He's a big proponent of quantum pseudoscience and publishes a lot of books that are very poorly regarded by mainstream science.
True, but phase velocity is different from group velocity. (Neither carries information faster than light, however.)Tunneling is the one possibility as far as I know, and it doesn't seem likely to be able to do so.
For a more rigorous definition, all the information is contained in the points of non-analyticity of a pulse, and arrives when those points arrive.
Ok help me here please, so two little entangled particles get sent away to some measuring devices. One is told to spin to the right, and as a result the other spins to the left? yes or no.....
