Does this paper shed any light on whether virtual particles are real, or not?

They are speaking colloquially, as if they are real, but it sounds like there are complementary explanations that do not need to use virtual particles. Not sure, though - it's over my head.

My understanding is also that the following paper (http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/0503158) addressed only the static casimir effect, and does not apply to the DCE on the paper above. Is that true?

Thanks!
