# Comment on “Dr. Bertlmann’s Socks in a Quaternionic World of Ambidextral Reality”

@article{Gill2021CommentO, title={Comment on “Dr. Bertlmann’s Socks in a Quaternionic World of Ambidextral Reality”}, author={Richard David Gill}, journal={IEEE Access}, year={2021}, volume={9}, pages={44592-44598} }

I point out critical errors in the article “Dr. Bertlmann’s Socks in a Quaternionic World of Ambidextral Reality” by J. Christian, published in IEEE ACCESS. Christian’s model does not generate the singlet correlations but in fact simply reproduces the Bertlmann effect. John Bell’s colleague Reinhold Bertlmann of CERN, in his younger days, always wore one pink and one blue sock, at random. The moment you saw his left foot, you knew what colour sock would be on his right foot. Action at a…

This response to a critique of one of my papers is demonstrated point by point that, contrary to its claims, the critique has not found any mistakes in the paper, either in the analytical model of the singlet correlations or in its event-by-event numerical simulation based on Geometric Algebra.
