Classical physics explanation to EPR is given in post #9686. In essence, there is no entanglement.Two different situations where discussed when HB posited his question to Aura mythra.
Aspects experiment with two photons. Leading to the EPR paradox and Bell's solution.
The other was entanglement, as in two parts of one photon. pg 473 #9677 and last posts on the former page give a short summation.
Why do you assume that there was a first 0.01s of the universe?None can observe nor set up a stable measurement system to know what happened in the first 0.01s (quagma-state) of the universe for it is too hot.
Most i theoretical physics is speculation to resolve speculation, but obviously some things can be put to the test. And usually the math will strive to get to observable and testable positions.
( a ket or Hermitian operator)
Apart from the BBT such things as dark matter, dark energy, strings a.s.o. are solutions for dissatisfaction with the BBT.
I like geons. ;)
And I can say that in an hypothesis of "unobservable space bubbles" absolute vacuum is imperative for the bubbles. This is why they can not be observed.Absolute vacuum is an ideal environment for strings. Imperative in fact.
So do your strings exist or not? Have they always existed? This is hypothetically speaking of course.
So you're back to invisible unicorns and dragon in the garage. How indeed would you measure or observe them. You know they're there though, don't you :)But how would you measure or observe them, as polymath allready pointed out!
