I should add here that Philip Pearle interpreted his excellent analysis in terms of data rejection, or what is now called a "detection loophole". But that is an incorrect interpretation of what is going on, not the least because it requires non-vanishing Delta, which contradicts at least some of the predictions of quantum mechanics.

The correct interpretation of what is going on, without setting Delta = 0, is in terms of the very geometry and topology of the 3D space in which all such experiments are necessarily performed, as I have explained in the following paper and the event-by-event numerical simulations cited therein: https://arxiv.org/abs/1405.2355.

I made a mistake in the above post but no one noticed. I meant to say "without letting Delta =/= 0", not "without setting Delta = 0."

PS: A comprehensive paper on the subject is now published by the Royal Society here: http://rsos.royalsocietypublishing.org/ ... 5/5/180526.

A fine example of how an elementary physical mistake can be sold off as a profound result by the art of obfuscation is Bell’s theorem.
