Damien, I suppose, wrote in July about those correlations:
"All that's happening is that the outcome of a measurement
*here* is correlated with the outcome of a measurement *there*.
All? ALL! Here is a billion light years from there!"
The Geneva quantum optics group performed a new
experiment (a two-photon interference exp. using
time-energy entangled bi-photons and Franson type
interferometers). They say:
"We performed a Bell test during more than 24 hours
between two villages separated by 18 km and approximately
east-west oriented, with the source located
precisely in the middle. We continuously observed
2-photon interferences well above the Bell inequality
threshold. Taking advantage of the Earth's rotation,
the configuration of our experiment allowed
us to determine, for any hypothetically privileged
frame, a lower bound for the speed of this spooky
influence. For instance, if such a privileged reference
frame exists and is such that the Earth's speed
in this frame is less than 10^-3 that of the speed of
light, then the speed of this spooky inuence would
have to exceed that of light by at least 4 orders of
magnitude."

So, we already knew there are no local HV, now we know
that spooky actions at a distance (and spooky passions at
a distance) are improbable. Better to stop here and say
that quantum world is non-local & non-separable? Wasn't
after all the Newtonian universe non-local too?
