Aspelmeyer's experiment is profound in implication, certainly--but 
why is Radin's experimental result "trivial"? It might be bogus 
BULLSHIT, completely invented or very badly conducted, but if not and 
the results are as summarized it can hardly be *trivial*, seems to 
me. Or do you mean trivial *by definition*, since we know in advance 
that it can be nothing better than BULLSHIT? (Although if Anton 
Zeilinger had arranged it, and the same results appeared in Nature, 
somehow that would make it all better.)
