Hello to the forum (new user). I have a background in philosophy and have been reading Hughes' Structure and Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics. I have a question about entanglement. When I first read the description of entanglement, in the above book, it did indeed seem like "spooky action at a distance." Now I'm a few chapters beyond that, and I've "lost the spookiness." Hughes has been arguing that quantum particles do not really have properties at all, that we can only talk about events. My question is: Is there something undeniably spooky going on in entanglement, or is it simply spooky action-at-a-distance if you adopt a particular perspective (which I seem to have lost)? Or have I just forgotten how to see the spookiness? Let me explain the Alice and Bob situation as I understand it. Then I'd appreciate someone commenting on my understanding. I'll use Bohm's example with electrons. So two electrons in the spin-singlet state rush off in opposite directions. Alice measures the z-axis spin on one electron and gets, say +z. She knows that Bob, at whatever distance he is, will get -z if he measures spin on the z-axis of his electron. Now the entanglement comes when Bob measures a different, incompatible observable from the one Alice measures. Say Alice measures z again and finds z+. Bob instead measures x-axis spin and gets a random value. This is what we expect: the singlet state has "collapsed" into z+ and so x is equally likely to be x+ or x-. But if Alice measures x-spin instead of z, and Bob measures x, Bob will always get the opposite x-spin from Alice. So when we compare the results we find that when Alice chose to measure z, the Bob x is random, and when Alice measures x, the Bob x is still random, but is also the opposite of Alice's. Is this what happens? What is spooky about this? What am I missing? Thanks.
