When there are nagging doubts about something in my work I worry about them until they make sense. Experience shows me that if I brush something aside, it comes back later to bite me. So I feel that those in the field of quantum information must have the same uneasiness about non-locality. and a stubborn, even defensive, acceptance of Bell's theorem. So there must be a sense of paranoia about this inexplicable property. Local realists are a thorn, and I will only shut up if I am shown to be wrong, or some other viable local realistic explanation comes along.
Nonetheless, the Moderators (of ArXiv) blacklisted me in 2009, denying me the exposure that others have, and for unknown reasons too. When I asked for the reasons, I get a note with no name, other than signed by "the Moderators" stating that in order to find out why they blacklisted me, I should submit the paper for publication.
By the way, most of the papers on the archives never get published.
I am, by the way, an interloping chemist. I actually think that not being brought up in physics has helped me see through the EPR paradox, but I can actually concur with the earlier negative responses I got as I blundered onto the field and asked stupid questions like, “What is the mechanism for teleportation?”.
Computer simulations of experimental data provide a way of testing models and theories. For example in classical statistical mechanics various simulations are done by starting with a collision model between particles, and then running computer simulations until the system becomes statistical under various approximations. The results from the simulation of properties are compared to the known experimental values.

The following is a research lecture given on January 22nd, 2013 at McGill Chemistry: Part 1: Introduction and the Statistical Ensemble Interpretation of quantum mechanics Part 2: The EPR paradox and problems with quantum mechanics Part 3: Measurement and EPR experiments Part 4: Entanglement and Non-locality Part 5: The […]
In this part it is shown that the two dimensional spin model predicts the filter angles that give the maximum violation of the CHSH form of Bell's Inequalities. It is also shown that the 2D spin is consistent with the non-commutative trigonometry by Karl Gustafson who found that a vector of length √2 is needed for the violation. This vector his has the same properties of the 2D structured spin presented here.
In this part my two dimensional spin model in introduced. The model treats one of the many spins that makes up the statistical ensemble that is the quantum state. It is shown how averaging over all the Local Hidden Variables agrees completely with the correlation found in EPR experiments in a local and realistic way.
Two aspects of quantum mechanics that are not understood are non-locality and the persistence of entanglement to space-like separations. In this part entanglement is explained and non-locality is shown to be a concept that no-one understands. Non-locality is called quantum weirdness.
In this part of the seminar it is pointed out that quantum mechanics is a theory of measurement of the microscopic. This means that a probe of some sort must be used to "see" spin. However it is pointed out that states exist in the completely isotropic environment in the absence of a probe.
The longest standing unsolved problem in quantum mechanics is the EPR paradox. Its history is traced from the 1927 Solvay Conference to the present time. Today non-locality is firmly entrenched in physics and in spite of various experiments on teleportation, quantum cryptography and quantum computing, no one understands now entanglement persists to space like separation.
