This is a very interesting experiment. Local realism has died a thousand deaths though.
Quantum physics: Death by experiment for local realism
A fundamental scientific assumption called local realism conflicts with certain predictions of quantum mechanics. Those predictions have now been
verified, with none of the loopholes that have compromised earlier tests.
I can understand why Einstein didn't like this. Quantum mechanics basically destroys materialism and makes the universe fundamentally look like a
The fact that the universe on a fundamental level is open to our questioning is simply astounding. The questions we ask nature shouldn't matter. If
blind materialism was correct then nature should have an existence independent of how we question it.
This troubled Einstein because science isn't about questioning nature even after is observed and measured, it's about measurements and replications.
How we question it shouldn't matter but it does. Here's a quote from Heisenberg.
“What we observe is not nature itself, but nature exposed to our method of questioning.”
― Werner Heisenberg
We question each other to gather more information whether it's a job interview or we're trying to get directions at a gas station. We shouldn't have
to question the universe. It's measurements should be independent and we should be able to replicate these measurement if materialism is correct. But
again, this isn't what we see on a fundamental level of reality where you can have entanglement in space and time so you can have retrocausality.
On a classical level, it would be like going into a gas station in Atlanta and asking where's the Wyatt Building and sometimes you can get an answer
that says it's off of exit 20 and at other times you can get an answer that says it's off of exit 15.
It goes even deeper than that. If I ask the question and they say off of exit 20 one day, I could go in the gas station and ask the same question the
next day and they will say off exist 15 and the city of Atlanta would correlate itself so the Wyatt Building is off of exit 15 even if yesterday it
was off of exit 20!
When you think about what this means it's truly amazing. It also connects quantum mechanics to consciousness because we operate the same way.
I also think this explains things we call coincidences, synchronicity and even the Mandella Effect.
This because it seems like the more random the outcome of an event can be the more correlated it is and the more certain the outcome can be the more
it seems separable.
So I can set my keys next to my bed before I go to sleep but when I wake up my keys are on the stand next to my TV. I will say, "I could have sworn I
set my keys next to my bed."
Maybe it's not a coincidence but a these measurements are correlated. Something like the election of the President might be highly separable because
it would take a lot of energy for this measurement to fluctuate. So when Bush, Obama and now Trump are elected President there's a 99.9% chance that
everyday they will be the President. Something like where I set my keys could look different. There could be a 70% chance I set my keys next to my bed
and a 30% chance I set my keys on the night stand. So there's a bigger chance that this measurement can fluctuate.
This would also point to parallel universes because these measurements can fluctuate because both measuremants can occur. So there's another version
of me that wakes up and says, "I could have sworn I put my keys on the night stand next to the TV." Unless there's local realism that would reduce
these possible measurements to just one observer. If experiment after experiment keeps pointing to the death of local realism, then you have to accept
parallel universes because there's nothing to reduce the state to one measurement and one observer.
