Alain Aspect's experiment: In the Alain Aspect experiment, the two entangled photons will indeed both go through their respective polarizers. I'm hip with that. I'm also hip with Aspect's diligence in making it a "two-channel" testing apparatus. What I don't understand is why should the fact that each entangled photon going through it's respective polarizer a matter of violating Bell's inequality. Shouldn't it be common sense that an entangled pair of particles share a common state of polarization (even if it's circular polarization)? I mean, when I visualize the Aspect experiment, I'm visualising the simultaneous creation of a correlated pair of photons--photons that are indistinguishable in all respects including polarization state--going through their polarisers as they should. After all, I'd think that one photon that goes through the polarizer, then its exact replica should likewise go through a different polarizer of the same orientation. Don't you think it would be freaky if one entangled photon goes through it's polarizer, while it's exact replica does not? Knowing that, what makes the Aspect experiment so special? Why should it be considered evidence that favors something as far-fetched as non-locality? Shouldn't Aspect's result simply be considered merely the observation of two twin photons, created at the same time and with the exact same properties, and nothing more? I just can't see the connection between photons created with the same polarization and non-locality. Help!
