The kind of local realism I am talking of is dictated by the principle of microscopic causality(i.e.nothing but the commutation property of the field at two space-time points),which is the basic feature of QFT--how can anyone doubt it?And this kind of local realism dictated by microscopic causality does not contradict EPR situations as I have already said--in EPR you don't measure the field anywhere,you are just measuring polarization at two places (which due to entanglement leads to higher correlation than expected on classical grounds).vanesch said:This is a "local realist" approach, and some people try to work it out ; for instance, the promotors of "stochastic electrodynamics" and so on. It is considered a bit "fringe" work (but that by itself doesn't matter).

Don't know what you are saying here.Mind you, I don't find this approach totally ridiculous - in fact my hope is that gravity does exactly this, on some level or other. But this would in any case mean a serious deviation from as well general relativity as from quantum theory as we know it.
