We formulate a paradox in relation to the description of a joint entity consistingof two subentities by standard quantum mechanics. We put forward a proposalfor a possible solution, entailing the interpretation of 'density states' as 'purestates.' We explain where the inspiration for this proposal comes from and howits validity can be tested experimentally. We discuss the consequences of theproposal for quantum axiomatics.
