Quantum Mechanics vs. Quantum business in Physics

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.

Quantum Archives censorship: & more about Computer Simulation

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.

However the day before the outing, by chance I called Whistler and found that gondola was closed for maintenance and at that time it was the only way up.

A Moon Struck Awakening in India.

As I looked over the Bay of Bengal, I saw what I initially thought was the sun setting. It was large and gold and full, half hidden by the sea’s horizon. I was struck for a few seconds by its beauty and felt a surge of good energy flow through me. I suddenly realized that it was not the setting sun, but the full moon rising.
