# Does Quantum Nonlocality Exist? Bell's Theorem and the Many-Worlds Interpretation

@article{Tipler2000DoesQN, title={Does Quantum Nonlocality Exist? Bell's Theorem and the Many-Worlds Interpretation}, author={Frank Tipler}, journal={arXiv: Quantum Physics}, year={2000} }

Quantum nonlocality may be an artifact of the assumption that observers obey the laws of classical mechanics, while observed systems obey quantum mechanics. I show that, at least in the case of Bell’s Theorem, locality is restored if observed and observer are both assumed to obey quantum mechanics, as in the Many-Worlds Interpretation. Using the MWI, I shall show that the apparently \non-local" expectation value for the product of the spins of two widely separated particles | the \quantum" part…

Locality and Counterfactual Reasoning in the Everett Interpretation of Heisenberg-Picture Quantum Mechanics

- Physics

The conceptual problem of nonlocality is replaced with a conceptual problems of proliferating labels, as correlated systems and observers undergo measurement-type interactions with newly-encountered objects and instruments; it is suggested that this problem may be resolved by considering quantum field theory rather than the quantum mechanics of particles.

Between 1964 and 1990, the notion of nonlocality in Bell's papers underwent a profound change as his nonlocality theorem gradually became detached from quantum mechanics, and referred to wider…

Probability, preclusion and biological evolution in Heisenberg-picture Everett quantum mechanics

- Physics
- 2020

Hard preclusion can provide an explanation for biological evolution, which can in turn explain their subjective experiences of, and reactions to, "ordinary" probabilistic phenomena, and the compatibility of those experiences and reactions with what the authors conventionally take to be objective probabilities arising from physical laws.
