Bell’s theorem, 6

E. T. Jaynes pointed out two hidden assumptions in Bell Inequality that could limit its generality. According to him:

1. Bell interpreted conditional probability P(X|Y) as a causal inference, i.e. Y exerted a causal inference on X in reality. However, P(X|Y) actually only means logical inference (deduction). Causes cannot travel faster than light or backward in time, but deduction can.

However, it should be interpreted as causal inference because before measurement, there is no Y, such a classical state.
