Paper Abstract

It is observed that a critical aspect of tests of Bell-inequalities is the employ of entities considered to be in the singlet state. This state is known to require extra-logical consideration to render it compatible with the current most popular interpretation of Quantum Theory. We show that the critical structure of this state for the analysis of these tests can be spoofed by feasible, classical effects, that thus far have not been absolutely precluded. Finally, we present statistical analysis showing that selecting for valid pairs of correlated signals by reducing the time off-set or window-width defining acceptable coincidences, actually and perversely supports the spoof mechanism.
