I've just saw Conway's lecture about "Free will" at princeton lectures online. It contains a nice explanation for the Kochen-Specker theorem for a spin-1 particle that is measured in 3 perpendicular directions (along symmetry directions).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I find it plausible that the state of a system changes locally(!) once a measurement is done. This would resolve the paradox of a single spin-1 particle (in Conways version at least).

I couldn't follow exactly what Conway said about two separated particles. If I assume that for whatever reason a measurement can change the state of the object, would it also resolve the problem for two separated particles? I assume that the measurement induced change of the object is onlylocal.

Anyone got an easy reference about Kochen-Specker for two separated particles? Or someone knows what I mean with my first statement and has an answer to my second question?
