In an earlier paper the author expounded an interferometer scheme to communicate classical data over an entangled quantum channel. We return to this concept to show that the laws of Quantum Mechanics are not violated and that the device is able to affect the statistical blend of the quantum states (and that this can be detected) but not the statistics - i.e. the physics of observables. The ideas of superluminal information transfer, discussed in the previous paper, are taken forward to develop… 

A Mechanism for the effects of Relativity

This paper seeks to investigate the questions of: How does the constancy of the speed of light come about? Why does time dilation and length contraction occur? Are they physical effects with a

Superluminal Signalling without the use of Entangled Particles

Entanglement studies dwell on multi-particle systems by definition – one particle, via a global symmetry/conservation law is correlated to another. It has often been wondered via

How the Quantum no-Communication Theorem Misuses the Formalism and Loses Phase Information

This paper follows on from the author’s previous thoughts on the subject of the “No-communication Theorem” and Ghirardi’s critique of a communication scheme by the author and then his response to

Comments on a recent proposal of superluminal communication

The first step which must be done is to summarize the content of refs.[1, 2]. In them, the author considers an experiments which should lead to faster than light communication between far away

Disproof of the no-Communication Theorem by Decoherence Theory

The No-communication Theorem has been seen as the bar to communication by quantum state collapse. The essence of this theory is the procedure of taking the partial trace on an entangled, hence

A Means to Purify an Entangled Source

A technique is presented for improving the ratio of entangled photons to un-entangled photons for any means of generation. The approach takes advantage of the entangled nature of the photons of



Secure Quantum Communication and Superluminal Signalling on the Bell Channel

A means and protocol is presented to send information on the Bell Channel to achieve the effect of superluminal signalling. The method is to use detection of a photon entangled state as one binary

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.

The Principles of Quantum Mechanics

AbstractTHIS is the second edition of the celebrated book that appeared five years ago, which has been perhaps the most outstanding book written on the quantum theory. The new edition has the same

A general argument against superluminal transmission through the quantum mechanical measurement process

In a r ecen t pape r (1) two of us have shown t h a t some recen t resul ts (~-4) abou t t he poss ib i l i ty of t r a n s m i t t i n g super lumina l signals t h r o u g h the collapse of t he

Experiments of the EPR Type Involving CP-Violation Do not Allow Faster-than-Light Communication between Distant Observers

The proof that faster-than-light communication is not permitted by quantum mechanics derived some years ago by three of us is extended to cover the case of measurements which do not fit within the

The General Theory of Relativity

THE WORD “SPECIAL” IN “SPECIAL THEORY OF RELATIVITY” means that the theory is restricted to those frames of reference for which the law of inertia holds, that is, inertial frames of reference.*

Observation of static electromagnetic angular momentum in vacua

Our programme of measurement of forces related to electromagnetic momentum at low frequencies in matter has culminated in the first direct observation of free electromagnetic angular momentum created

The Structure of Scientific Revolutions

A good book may have the power to change the way we see the world, but a great book actually becomes part of our daily consciousness, pervading our thinking to the point that we take it for granted,
