We show that a modified relativity principle could explain in a “classical” way the strange correlations of entangled photons. Using special relativity, we describe a gedanken experiment with balls and boxes that predicts the same distribution of probability of the quantum mechanics in the case of a pair of entangled photons meeting two polarizers. In the light of this gedanken experiment, we find an alternative description of the real EPR experiment postulating the existence of two observers (one for each polarizer) embedded in two locally anisotropic space-times. In our model there is no need to invoke quantum non-separability or instantaneous action at distance.

Abstract

We show that a modified relativity principle could explain in a “classical” way the strange correlations of entangled photons. Using special relativity, we describe a gedanken experiment with balls and boxes that predicts the same distribution of probability of the quantum mechanics in the case of a pair of entangled photons meeting two polarizers. In the light of this gedanken experiment, we find an alternative description of the real EPR experiment postulating the existence of two observers (one for each polarizer) embedded in two locally anisotropic space-times. In our model there is no need to invoke quantum non-separability or instantaneous action at distance.
