Hi. As far as I understand, superdeterminism (i.e. the experimentators are not free to choose the measurement parameters) allows the formulation of a local realistic quantum theory. But apparently physicists don't like the thought of not being in charge. Anton Zeilinger: "[W]e always implicitly assume the freedom of the experimentalist... This fundamental assumption is essential to doing science. If this were not true, then, I suggest, it would make no sense at all to ask nature questions in an experiment, since then nature could determine what our questions are, and that could guide our questions such that we arrive at a false picture of nature." I don't quite understand all that rejection. Up until the 20th century, physics was all about finding and describing the laws and mechanisms that underlie all things in nature, culminating in the idea of Laplace's demon. Certainly our minds would not be an exception. Surely there was quite a number of hardcore determinists in the physics community that did not question the usefulness of their work even if they were convinced that everything they did or thought was predetermined. What has changed since those times that apparently now physicists reject the idea that their actions might not be based on free will? Especially since quantum mechanics shows that observers cannot be strictly separated from the system they're observing?
