Nick Black Ahhh, I just came across Bohmian theory the other day while researching the Bell inequalities (trying to finally figure out how the hell hidden variable theories are contraindicated by quantum mechanics -- I must confess a continued lack of full understanding here). He seems quite the trip!

DJ Actually, I've never seen myself how leaving out hidden variables "solves" this puzzle either. I've recently found that other physicists (such as Brian Greene) are equally unsatisfied with the Bell experiments as evidence against hidden variable theories. The reasoning that leads to abandoning locality was much easier to swallow for me and that's how I always look at Bell experiments.

If ever the hidden variable refutation arguments do make sense to you, by all means, please share!
