We propose a realistic and nonlocal interpretation for quantum mechanics, which requires new mathematical, physical and philosophical foundations for space-time. Our theory violates Bell's inequality. We also discuss the cat paradox. 

A realistic interpretation of quantum mechanics. Asymmetric random walks in a discrete spacetime.

1 Abstract In this paper, I propose a realistic interpretation (RI) of quantum mechanics, that is, an interpretation according to which a particle follows a definite path in spacetime. The path is

An axiomatic framework for classical particle mechanics without space-time

We present an axiomatic framework for non-relativistic classical particle mechanics, inspired on Tati's ideas about a non-space-time description for physics. The main advantage of our picture is that

Indistinguishable particles and hidden variables

An axiomatics for the indistinguishability of elementary particles in terms of hidden variables is presented in a manner which depart from the standard approaches usually given to hidden variables.

Experimental quantum teleportation

It is shown that during teleportation, one of a pair of entangled photons are subjected to a measurement such that the second photon of the entangled pair acquires the polarization of the initial photon.

Empirical consequences of the scientific construction: The program of local hidden-variables theories in quantum mechanics

We claim that physics has been constructed because three “philosophical” principles have been respected, namely, realism, locality, and consistency. These principles lead to an interpretation of

Interaction-free measurement.

It is shown that one can ascertain the presence of an object in some sense without interacting with it, using single photons in a Michelson interferometer.
