HuH?? It proves nothing of the sort! Just because there is no way the information could have travelled the distance between the two particles slower than the speed of light does NOT automatically mean that Spooky Action is the only alternative to what is happening.
The instantaneous transfer of phase information in this way can be observed in both quantum and classical situations and as it cannot be used to transmit any information other than what it is required to do it does not contravene any normal laws of nature.
So this was one of Einstein's blind spots "spooky action at a distance " is far from spooky but is a general property of waves.
No other transmission works the way the transfer of phase information does, because it is impossible for it to do so according to the laws of physics. Yet it is perfectly okay to accept that phase information does indeed work this way anyway because, ..... because, ........ it does?The reason it works this way is because it works this way. To me this does not sound like a statement of science. It sounds like a statement of metaphysics, or perhaps philosophy. I'm missing something here!
