I don't think the Extropian list is working properly and I don't think
people who aren't on Gmail are seeing our conversation.

Well that pretty much settles the matter, you're wrong. You say above
the probability should be 1 chance in 2, quantum mechanics says it's 1
chance in 3, and when Bell's experiment is actually performed the results
say the correct answer is indeed 1 chance in 3. So quantum mechanics is
right and you are wrong. If you have a problem with that blame the universe
And you haven't explained how the correlations I described between people 2
billion light years apart could work or how hidden variables could make the
machine I wrote about work.

There was massive disagreement on how to explain this, and many of these
explanations are no longer viable due to recent experimental results.
However there is little or no disagreement about what quantum mechanics
predicts, what the experimental results are, or in the very very strong
feeling that results are weird.

Free will is neither possible nor impossible because free will is
