But don't take my word for it. This book was funded in part by a mini-grant by FQXi which is awarded based on a lottery system: " A Mini-Grant means that a Member submitted a small proposal appropriate to the funding program, and then basically got lucky -- Mini-Grants are chosen by a random lottery. We might in the future raise the bar on 'appropriate'; currently, however, a Mini-Grant does not mean a proposal has passed any serious peer-review process."
Also FQXi issued this public statement: "A recent situation involving intense controversy surrounding the work of FQXi Member Joy Christian brought many of these considerations to our attention (though it is far from the only case to which the considerations apply). To study this issue, we convened a special panel composed of experts exquisitely qualified to read, understand, and evaluate both Christian's work, and the way discussion of the work has played out in the public sphere.Read more ›
"... present quantum theory claims on the one hand that local microevents have no physical causes, only probability laws; but at the same time admits (from the EPR paradox) instantaneous action at a distance! Today we have in full flower the blatant, spooky contradictions that Einstein foresaw and warned us about [more than] 60 years ago, and there is no way to reason logically from them.
We see the effects of this in the fact that today, a large portion of research in theoretical physics has been reduced to wheel-spinning; random fiddling with the mathematics of the old theory, without giving a thought to its physical foundations. One would think that the folly of this might have been learned from the example of Einstein; yet his repeated warnings go unheeded even as his worst fears are realized before our eyes.
This mysticism must be replaced by a physical interpretation that restores the possibility of thinking rationally about the world. ..."
Joy Christian has done just that in this book. It is the first serious attempt to confront the unfortunate error in Bell's theorem by reproducing all the quantum correlations in a locally realistic manner without any spooky business. Exactly what Einstein would have liked. Christian finds that the correlations originate due to the geometric structure of physical space which Bell did not consider in his derivations.Read more ›
