 Bell's theorem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bell's theorem is the most famous legacy of the late Irish phyisicist John Bell.
Bell test experiments to date overwhelmingly show that the inequalities of Bell's theorem are violated.
John Bell's papers examined both John von Neumann's 1932 proof of the incompatibility of hidden variables with QM and Albert Einstein and his colleagues' seminal 1935 paper on the subject.

 The Photon a particle or wave?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
John Bell derived a mathematical theorem which verified the statistical predictions of quantum mechanics could be applied to quantum particles that were "spacelike separated" or existed in different local realities.
This implies the presently accepted concepts of quantum mechanics are incomplete and that there may be a "hidden variable" or mechanisms to account for the fact that quantum particles appear to "communicate" at speeds greater than that of light.
However, both the EPR paradox and Bells theorem deals with rate at which the information regarding the momentum of quantum particles can be communicated to different local realities.

 The EPR Paradox and Bell's Inequality Principle
In 1964 John Bell proposed a mechanism to test for the existence of these hidden variables, and he developed his inequality principle as the basis for such a test.
This is Bell's Inequality Principle, and it is proved to be true if there are real (perhaps hidden) variables to account for the measurements.
Some physicists argue that there are assumptions in derivations of Bell's Inequality and that it may be possible to construct a local theory that does not respect those assumptions.

 Missing Phenomenon
If Bells theorem holds true, this implies reading electrons as binary bits, and the fact that they can be switched, and altered in real time(instantaneously), without regard to distance, would make interstellar, or coast to coast communication much faster then even before, and that is understated..
Duster, Bell's theorem does not concern itself with which kind of particle, or whether there is mass or not, but rather just with local realistic systems with properties that can be varied over a small finite set (idealized as two-state).
The theorem must state that alll matter is bound and that balence is only achieved when it becomes fixed, and observable.

 Bell's Theorem   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
The same theorem can be applied to measurements of the polarisation of light, which is equivalent to measuring the spin of photon pairs.
The fact that our final form of Bell's inequality is experimentally violated indicates that at least one of the three assumptions we have made have been shown to be wrong.
What is actually found [in the experimental tests of Bell's theorem] is that the behavior of the two [electrons] is correlated in a way that is rather similar to that of the two television images of the fish, as described earlier.

 The Meeting of Science and Mysticism
Bell’s math thus suggests that space and time only exist on some levels of the universe-or only in our minds-or that we must assume a level of reality where space and time don’t exist at all.
This sounds some wild, science-fiction elaboration of Bell, but it has been seriously proposed by Dr. Evan Harris Walker, an American physicist who deduced, from Bell’s math and the math of Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle* just how the human brain should be able to affect the dice.
In summary, Bell’s theorem does not prove the truth of the basic ideas of mysticism, but it definitely makes them seem more plausible than any previous scientific discovery did.

This matterenergy wave is generated by a coupling, form one "quantum mass unit of space" to the next, of "vibrations" in a continuous non-quantized matter and energy field component of space.
In response to Einstein argument about incompleteness of Quantum Mechanics, John Bell argued that the quantum mechanical approach to describing nature is valid and the apparent incompleteness arises from an incomplete understanding of the important quantities and constraints inherent in nature.
This defines a physical mechanism explaining why Bell's theorem can provide mathematical verification that the statistical predictions of quantum mechanics can be applied to quantum particles or "quantum mass units of space" that are "spacelike separated" or exist in different local realities.

Published in 1965, Bell's Theorem is famous for drawing an important line in the sand between Quantum Mechanics (QM) and the world as we know it intuitively.
Bell's Theorem shows that the dream of a "more complete" theory is just that: a dream.
Bell was aware that there were some unusual cases in which pairs of particles could be created that had an unusual property - they remained connected in some way even after they were separated.

 Bell's Theorem: Physics
The way we will prove the theorem is to assume locality to be true, which will eventually lead us to make a testable prediction.
This effect, strange as it may seem, is exactly the kind of thing we found we needed to explain the failure of Bell's inequality.
In order to explain the failure of Bell's inequality we had to conclude that one of the measurements (presumably whichever one happened first) affected the state of the other electron.

Bells Theorem is important to us because it demonstrates on a microcosmic level the reality of the Zero dimension of Awareness and Synchronicity.
Bells Theorem also demonstrates that some phenomenon -- those connected with the Zero dimension - are not submitted to the laws of causality.

 into to QM
John Bell found that there should be certain differences between a theory, which is local and supposes that everything's predetermined and in and a theory, which is non-local and where things doesn't take on a special attribute until measured.
And they all exist, remember bells theorem, particles doesn't have determined attributes but they become determined only after measurement so since the particles are in super positions both states exist in the particles, and all the four states exist in the two particle combined.
However Alice original particle still gets destroyed, this is because in the Bell state measurement, Alice EPR particle and her original particle also gets entangled, which means that the original particle looses it's own state and instead it's state now depends on Alice EPR particles and vice versa.

Bell's Theorem says (in essence) that if there are no non-local connections, then the correlations between measurements made on entangled particles can't be above a certain strength.
What Alain Aspect and his group did in the early 1980s was show that you could get correlations stronger than Bell's inequality allowed.

He preferred the idea that some unknown or "hidden variables" were contributing to the effect, and since they weren’t known, then quantum theory must be incomplete.
In 1964, John Bell proved that there could not possibly be any hidden variables, which meant that spooky action at a distance was a fact.
