Let us try to model the experiment described in "Disproving Local Realism" with help of tennis balls. 800 pairs of tennis balls are each prepared, say some instructions are written on them, and then split. One ball is always thrown to Alice on the left; the second flies to Bob on the right.Every of ...

Disproving Local Realism
http://www.science20.com/alpha_meme/disproving_local_realism-79216
Modern physics has disproved direct realism: There is no locally realistic description of our world possible. Although I have already explained this differently at several places, for example by refusing 'real stuff' as being a good explanation for what is "at the bottom", it is worth to prove it ...

Most young men of the time could only fantasize, but Charles Darwin experienced the overt drama of his century"s archetypal episode in the personal story we now call "coming of age": a five-year voyage of pure adventure (and much science) circumnavigating the globe on H.M.S.
