More Quantum Woo-Woo?
This article seems to conflate three different concepts: quantum entanglement, quantum indeterminism, and the collapse of the wave function.
It seems that part of the reason why I can't understand quantum mechanics is that most attempts to describe it to a lay audience are so poor.
This experiment seems to give further evidence for quantum entanglement, but that was never really in doubt. The question the article seems to want to answer is the following: what are the metaphysical and epistemological implications of quantum entanglement? Unfortunately, this experiment does not answer that question.
