Bohm (faster than light reactivty?)

  1. Dec 9, 2003 #1
    Can someone please tell me what exactly the Bohm experiment was in which he seemed to show that (and I am not exactly sure of this) that a segment of a particle (call it particle split "A") split from another particle segment (Call it particle split "B") could result in particle split A causing in a reaction to particle split "B" in less time than it would take for light to travel from particle A to Particle B??? If someone could explain what happened during this experiment (and maybe even how it was that a person could measure that a faster than speed of light transmission of reactivity has occurred) I would greatly appreciate it. Does Bohm prove that faster than light activity is a reality or what exactly was the experiment and what did the results suggest?
