Bell's Inequality Untwisted
eBook (PDF), 83 Pages
Bell's Inequality Untwisted is a unique book. The author's aim is to explain in detail all the equations and statements in John S. Bell's ground-breaking paper, published in 1964,"On the Einstein Podolsky Rosen Paradox." He attempts an in depth explanation of Bell's paper in a way that is understandable to a wide audience. In the process of explaining every equation in detail, it becomes clear that Bell's 1964 paper is a series of incoherent equations, and his famous eponymic inequality is an unjustified assertion. Bell's elliptic style of writing calls out for comprehensive explanations of his equations. Explanations that fill the lacunae in his mathematical system. When the gaps in his system are filled, the inconsistent and illogical nature of his reasoning becomes clear. Bell's inequality holds a very important place in the development of quantum mechanics. The fact that the profound shortcomings of Bell's paper are not widely known is telling.

Mar 19, 2014I know some details that went into the genesis of this book. Several years ago the author sent me a version of this book, which he had produced using his desk-top printer. This version had different cover art. The cover was a b&w photocopy of his artwork. Similar photocopies accompanied each of the poetically named chapters. The photocopies were of pictures he had constructed by glueing torn up and ground up fragments of wasps' nests to construction paper. The pages of the handmade book were held together by bolts and nuts, but the author had made the mistake of trying to drill through the pages with a high-speed electric drill. That caused each page to get imperceptibly thicker near the drill hole from fragments of the paper that were twisted and torn by the abrasive properties of the drill. It wasn't the high-speed drill itself that caused the problem; it was that the author couldn't find a way of clamping down the pages so that none of the pages would be able to move even the... More > slightest bit. The net effect of this disruption was to make the spine side of the book twice as thick as the other side of the book. The author had tried to mitigate the damage done by his use of a high-speed drill by sticking hole reinforcing disks around the drill holes. This only added to the problem. I forget the name of those hole reinforcing disks, but they are the ones familiar to us from our school days when we would use the same product to keep notes from falling out of our loose-leaf notebooks. Really, when I received the author's book through the mail, I wasn't sure whether it was one of the author's jokes because it was such an unsightly mess. The author once sent me a box with oddly shaped rocks in it for my birthday; he claimed they were neolithic scraping tools he had unearthed behind his house. The author told me factiously that the only way his book would get any popularity was if he could secret torn up pages of his book in the recently discovered Tibetan caves that were filled with ancient manuscript fragments. These caves were being explored by archeologists who were reconstructing the manuscript fragments. The content of the book itself is remarkable in that it attempts to disprove an established scientific truth. The author challenges Bell's inequality head on. But, how can he be right and the combined wisdom of the scientific community be wrong? I don't know how I feel about the ebook because at least before it existed I had a one of a kind artifact.< Less
