Does Quantum Nonlocality Exist? Bell's Theorem and the ManyWorlds Interpretation
Abstract
Quantum nonlocality may be an artifact of the assumption that observers obey the laws of classical mechanics, while observed systems obey quantum mechanics. I show that, at least in the case of Bell's Theorem, locality is restored if observed and observer are both assumed to obey quantum mechanics, as in the ManyWorlds Interpretation. Using the MWI, I shall show that the apparently "nonlocal" expectation value for the product of the spins of two widely separated particles  the "quantum" part of Bell's Theorem  is really due to a series of three purely local measurements. Thus, experiments confirming "nonlocality" are actually confirming the MWI.
