When quantum mechanics fails in EPR experiments

Intuition tells us that if we improve detection efficiency and build better experiments the number of detected events will increase until, at 100% efficiency, Fair Sampling would be verified because all events would be recorded. This fails, however, to take into account the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. Fair Sampling is always valid for classical events but not always valid for quantum events.

008 The Sub-quantum spin

It is important to be able to use mathematics, which is the logic of the LHS of the brain, to visualize what is going on, using the RHS of the brain. The two must be consistent. Heisenberg said that we observe our natural surroundings and intuitively develop a visualization of what is going on. We do not need a mathematical description macroscopically, unless we need precision, and Classical Mechanics works extremely well.

007 Anomalies in coincidence probabilities in EPR data

A sub-quantum theory is presented which accounts for the EPR correlations with a product state with no entanglement and no nonlocality. In addition the anomalies found in EPR data of Gregor Weihs and as analyzed by Adenier and Khrennikov, are explained by the product states of the bi-particles getting out of sync as they separate. The sub-quantum theory treats the ontic particles that form the ensembles or the quantum states. Whereas quantum states are hermitian, the sub-quantum spin state is fundamentally non-hermitian.

A spin is found to have a two dimensional structure rather than the point particle of quantum mechanics and in the absence of a probe, a spin is in a state of zero angular momentum.
