The experimental constructs designed to test entanglement (Alain Aspect et al) via Bell's theorem, have always made me question the interpretation of the evidence. I understand the reasoning behind the tests as follows: The experimental findings are considered evidence of the (conjugate) properties of the particles involved. This is a requirement of realism(local or non-local). As Bell's theorem is a test (resulting probabilities) for hidden variables, the experimental findings are sufficient proof that entanglement is not the result of hidden variables. The consiquence of no hidden variables is the requirement that entanglement, whatever that may be, is considered a non-local condition of certain particles. Under the premise that measurements of quantum action cannot be executed without influencing the quantum state in question - is it not possible that the properties attributed to particles that produce the findings of non-local entanglement, are in fact not properties of the particles, but conditions of the experimental construct that change according to the act of measurement leaving no (apparent) alternative but to conclude non-locality when such findings are attributed to the properties of the particles being measured? (Give me a second to inhale) Example: having attributed colour to a property of an experimental subject rather than to a property of the light striking my detection device, I inadvertantly attribute a change in detected colour as a change in the property (colour) of the subject. While the structure of the subject is normally considered the determining factor of its reflective properties, a change in the geometry of subject to light source will also produce detectable changes in its colour. The symmetry of the experimental construct must then reflect the symmetry of the conjugate property in question for a detected change to be attributed to a property of the subject rather than a condition of the experimental construct. While I'm not suggesting the experimental construct changes "during" measurement, it seems reasonable to question the spatial symmetry of the construct necessary to measure both entangled photons at FTL separations. Thanks for any help and/or references. P.S. What is the accepted mechanics occurring when both entangled particles are measured simultaneously?
