Entanglement and Non-Locality
Before you finish this book you need to learn about experiments that support the belief that quantum indeterminacy is a fundamental feature of atoms, indeed, of the entire physical world. To understand these experiments you need to know about a remarkable and important feature of quantum superposition called “entanglement.” As you will see, entanglement not only helps to establish that indeterminacy is a basic feature of reality, it also reveals surprising, non-local connections between quantum systems far apart from each other. It shows that quantum mechanics is a non-local theory. Non-locality is as strange as fundamental indeterminacy. This chapter discusses both.
