Re: A different option? You cannot break Bell theorem/observations!
AFAIK one of the only possible alternatives is "throwing locality out the window". We generally cannot do that, because it breaks other math.
However, if Quantum Loop Gravity ever gets a testable proof/applicable example, then we may find that the dimensionality "shape" of space/time is different than we first expected.
So for example, it may be possible for the "interaction" to be passed through quantum scale sized worm holes, or similar mechanics.
So we only have 3 options to the observed Bell inequalities.
1) It's an unset measurement, and only given a result when the interaction happens, and one particle changes the possible interactions of any/all others, especially it's quantum clone (see no cloning theorem and many other limiting factors).
2) We throw locality theory out the window. While it may not be possible to do so, I would guess the true result lies somewhere between quantum measurements and some new laws/observations on limitations of locality. I would think we may find out not all the universes particles/fields/waves are "local" as we first assumed.
3) We throw causality out the window. Well, this is the only one totally not a real option... though it seems sadly some people do apply this to their thinking!!!
