"The Bohm interpretation describes [the experiment described in the Bell Theorem] as follows: to understand the evolution of these particles, we need to set up a wave equation for both particles; the orientation of the apparatus affects the wave function. The particles in the experiment follow the guidance of the wave function; we don't know the initial conditions of these particles, but we can predict the statistical outcome of the experiment from the wave function. It is the wave function that carries the faster-than-light effect of changing the orientation of the apparatus."

(source: Wikipedia; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bohm_interpretation#The_Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen_paradox )

How does the orientation of the apparatus affect the wave function? Can someone explain just how, according to the Bohm Interpretation, the wave function of these particles could have such superluminal effect? Is there any theory about this at all? From the way Wikipedia put it, I got the impression there was more to be said about it.
