Welp, I learned why Quantum entanglement must work faster than the speed of light. I just don't know how it works. Such seems to be the case with many areas in Quantum Mechanics. The why part is easy to understand, the how part is seemingly impossible.

Watching PBS Space-Time too, eh? smile

I honestly don't know what your talking about. I've known about cleverbot for about 4 years now

Oh, Space-Time has been doing some episodes on quantum entanglement and causality recently.

Oh, no I was just curious and bored one day in my english class after a test (waiting for others to finish) and I just read the page of it on Wikipedia. It's not as bad as teachers think. If something is incorrect, it is usually obvious

There was a book about that.

causality


So what do you think, is the universe deterministic or indeterministic?

If I had to choose a philosophical view, then I find the idea of superdeterminism oddly attractive: the universe is completely deterministic and the problem with Bell's Theorem is in the assumption of the free will of the experimenter.

Of course, that's philosophy. I'm really not so much concerned about interpretations of quantum mechanics for as long as they are consistent with observations. smile

I have the book, been reading it for days. Was a good read, but I wanted to see more of the alternate stuff

Seems like some people just don't want to give up the notion of free will, though it is a great illusion.

Oh yes. Probably the most powerful and most useful illusion of them all.

If we don't give up free will to interpret quantum mechanics, do you think you have an easier time abandoning determinism or locality?

Seems to me that all of physics is determined so giving up determinism is a no go. Even if certain phenomena can't be predicted or known at the time, it seems like the overall outcome is deterministic. Could be wrong but that makes the most sense.
