Non-locality, or quantum-non-locality, are buzzwords in the community of quantum foundation and information scientists, which purportedly describe the implications of Bell’s theorem. When such phrases are treated seriously, that is it is claimed that Bell’s theorem reveals non-locality as an inherent trait of the quantum description of the micro-world, this leads to logical contradictions, which will be discussed here. In fact, Bell’s theorem, understood as violation of Bell inequalities by… 
The Minimal Non-Realistic Modification of Quantum Mechanics
In this article we consider the variant of quantum mechanics (QM) which is based on the non-realism. There exists the theory of the modified QM introduced in [1] and [2] which is based on the
Quantum Nonlocality and Quantum Correlations in the Stern-Gerlach Experiment
This paper demonstrates that the Stern–Gerlach experiment possesses a quantum nonlocal character that has not previously been visualized or presented before, and shows that this feature of the SGE violates the Clauser–Horne–Shimony–Holt Bell inequality.
The Unfinished Search for Wave-Particle and Classical-Quantum Harmony
The main purpose of this paper is to review the progress that has taken place so far in the search for a single unifying principle that harmonizes (i) the wave and particle natures of matter and

This essay explores how such a claim that John von Neumann was the ‘first quantum Bayesian’ is, historically speaking, unsupported.
The Logical Error in the Derivation of the Non-Locality
It is shown that the standard derivation of the non-locality contains the logical error which invalidates the whole derivation.


Quantum non-locality—it ainʼt necessarily so...
Bellʼs theorem is 50 years old. There still remains a controversy about its implications. Much of this controversy has its roots in confusion regarding the premises from which the theorem can be
Interpretations of quantum mechanics, joint measurement of incompatible observables, and counterfactual definiteness
The validity of the conclusion to the nonlocality of quantum mechanics, accepted widely today as the only reasonable solution to the EPR and Bell issues, is questioned and criticized. Arguments are
On the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox
THE paradox of Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen [1] was advanced as an argument that quantum mechanics could not be a complete theory but should be supplemented by additional variables. These additional
Going Beyond Bell’s Theorem
Bell’s Theorem proved that one cannot in general reproduce the results of quantum theory with a classical, deterministic local model. However, Einstein originally considered the case where one could
Two copies of the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen state of light lead to refutation of EPR ideas.
A straightforward way to test violations of the EPR concepts with direct use of their state by noticing the fact that the four mode squeezed vacuum state produced in type II down-conversion can be seen both as two copies of approximate EPR states, and also as a kind of polarization supersinglet.
Can Quantum-Mechanical Description of Physical Reality Be Considered Complete?
Consideration of the problem of making predictions concerning a system on the basis of measurements made on another system that had previously interacted with it leads to the result that one is led to conclude that the description of reality as given by a wave function is not complete.
What's Wrong with these Elements of Reality?
The subject of Einstein-PodolskyRosen correlations—those strong quantum correlations that seem to imply "spooky actions at a distance"—has just been given a new and beautiful twist. Daniel
Proposed Experiment to Test Local Hidden Variable Theories.
A theorem of Bell, proving that certain predictions of quantum mechanics are inconsistent with the entire family of local hidden-variable theories, is generalized so as to apply to realizable

Unperformed experiments have no results
This paper discusses correlations between the results of measurements performed on physical systems which are widely separated, but have interacted in the past. It is shown that quantum correlations
