- Macroscopic local realism incompatible with quantum mechanics: failure of local realism where measurements give macroscopic uncertainties
- Reid, M. D.
- The author defines the premise of 'macroscopic local realism' so that its failure is more surprising than failure of the local realism addressed previously. Macroscopic local realism is a premise stating the following: If one can predict the result of a measurement at A by performing a simultaneous measurement on a spatially separated system B, then the result of the measurement at A is predetermined but described by an Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen 'element of reality,' which has an indeterminacy in each of its possible values, so that only values macroscopically different to those predicted are excluded.
