The following is direct copy-paste from my notes. I have had some time to reflect on this, but I’m strongly leaning towards Karen Barad’s Agential Realist Interpretation, which I will post about after doing some more reading.
Bell’s Theorem and the EPR Paradox
Quantum entanglement means that one of these things is very different than we tend to accept:
- Locality: distance has no meaning in some cases
- Realism: reality does not exist without observation “counterfactual definiteness” coexistence of everything possible.
- Freedom of choice: the universe and all of our actions are deterministic.
“namely (i) reality (that microscopic objects have real properties determining the outcomes of quantum mechanical measurements), and (ii) locality (that reality in one location is not influenced by measurements performed simultaneously at a distant location). ” (wikipedia)
