Quotes by James Cushing in Time One
Einstein was concerned about the entanglement of separated systems at least as early as 1925 ….
We are often told … that no physical theory describing well-defined objects … can account for [quantum] phenomena. The great majority of physicists continue to subscribe to this view, despite the fact that just such a deterministic theory, accounting for all of the phenomena of nonrelativistic quantum mechanics, was proposed by David Bohm more than four decades ago….
Central to Bohr’s vision was his ‘quantum postulate’ – the discontinuous transition of an atomic system from one stationary state to another during an interaction.
Bohr’s pronouncements on the interpretation of quantum mechanics are often difficult to understand and at times just plain opaque.
