EPR paradox, 11.4

Black hole information paradox, 2.2.4


physical definition

~ define the microscopic events in terms of observable physical phenomena such as the change of readings of the measuring device

~ define unobservable events in terms of observable events

In the EPR experiment, if at least one of the detectors at the two end destinations is already turned on at the time of emitting, then (the system that contains) the pair is NOT in a superposition since the beginning.

The entangled variables (that the detector measures) are already physically defined by the detector’s potential behaviors. The system state is already a mixed state, not a superposition.


~ lack of the existence of measuring device to provide the physical definitions for the (difference between) microscopic events

With respect to that pair of entangled variables, the experiment setup is just a classical one, which directly follows Aristotle’s 3 laws of logic.

For any proposition \displaystyle{A}, either \displaystyle{A} is true or \displaystyle{\text{NOT}~A} is true, but not both.

There is nothing non-classical about the correlation between the (such as) spin values of the pair.


What is more difficult to understand is the non-classical part:

What if, instead of turning on a detector before the time of emitting, we turn it on after the pair is emitted but before either of them has reached its destination?
