This discussion throws an interesting light on the Bohr Einstein debate about the completeness of the quantum mechanical description of reality. The additional elements of reality for which Einstein hoped were intended to be counterfactually predictive. Recall Einstein s criterion of reality : if we can predict with certainty what the result of a measurement would be, then there is an element of reality underlying that prediction, even if the measurement is not actually performed.

Bruce why would these two physicists spend their time debating the above if reality has nothing to do with physics?

regards, tim
