Entanglement Swapping and Action at a Distance
A 2015 experiment by Hanson and Delft colleagues provided further confirmation that the quantum world violates the Bell inequalities, being the first Bell test to close two known experimental
Nonlocality via Entanglement Swapping – a Bridge Too Far?
A 2015 experiment by Hanson and Delft colleagues provided new confirmation that the quantum world violates the Bell inequalities, being the first Bell test to close two known experimental loopholes
Some Mathematical Consequences of the Postulates
The aim is to get the reader acclimatized to the fact that developing quantum algorithms requires one to work with concepts like superposition, entanglement, and measurement in the presence of the No-go theorems in the alien world of quantum mechanics.
What Is It Like to Be a Social Scientist?
ABSTRACT Alexander Wendt’s Quantum Mind and Social Science is an effort to establish foundations of social science based on the ontology of modern physics. The quantum revolution has deservedly had
The Role of Light in Observation: Why is the Speed of Light Invariant?
In 1905, based on the Michelson-Morley experiment, Einstein proposed the hypothesis of invariance of light speed (ILS). He then theoretically deduced the Lorentz transformation from ILS, established
Modern Classical Spin Dynamics
Abstract: The near-century-old Stern-Gerlach experiment played an important role in the philosophy of quantum mechanics. 50 years ago Bell drew drastic conclusions about the nature of reality based

The main principles of the previously constructed photon quantum mechanics allowing one to calculate the probability density of detection of the photon using the its wave function in the coordinate
The Idealist View of Consciousness After Death
To make educated guesses about what happens to consciousness upon bodily death, one has to have some understanding of the relationship between body and consciousness during life. This relationship,
Not Its Own Meaning: A Hermeneutic of the World
The contemporary cultural mindset posits that the world has no intrinsic semantic value. The meaning we see in it is supposedly projected onto the world by ourselves. Underpinning this view is the
The Next Paradigm
In order to perceive the world, we need more than just raw sensory input: a subliminal paradigm of thought is required to interpret raw sensory data and, thereby, create the objects and events we

Practical application of the generalized Bells theorem in the so-called key distribution process in cryptography is reported. The proposed scheme is based on the Bohms version of the
Experimental Realization of Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen-Bohm Gedankenexperiment : A New Violation of Bell's Inequalities
The linear-polarization correlation of pairs of photons emitted in a radiative cascade of calcium has been measured. The new experimental scheme, using two-channel polarizers (i.e., optical analogs
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
