Question about Gravitons.

  1. Aug 8, 2011 #1
    As John Bell showed us a particle is not in a spin state until we measure it. So would a Graviton always be in a definite spin state because it would always be interacting with the gravitational field.

    Your just pointing to the usual problem of measurement of QM, is the gravitational field an "observer" in the sense of the Copenhagen interpretation of QM?

    Baloney. Since your premise is nonsense, there is no need to go further.

    If there's something you don't understand, it's better to ask than to state something wrong.

    ok then what is the purpose of Bell's experiments.

    1. Bell didn't perform any experiments.
    2. You're hijacking your own thread.
