  • “I am a quantum engineer, but on Sundays I have principles”. This is how John Bell opened his “underground colloquium” in March 1983; words which I will never forget! What! John Bell, the great John Bell, presented himself as an engineer!?! one of those people who make things work without even understanding how they function?!? In contrast I thought of John Bell as one of the greatest theoreticians.1
