On the Wave System Theory of the EPR Experiment
The EPR polarization experiment is interpreted in terms of a new basic theory of physics called the “Wave system theory.” This theory was developed to explain why elementary particles occur but is also applicable to the EPR experiment. The wave system theory assumes the universe is a pure wave system and hypothesizes that the elementary particles are the constructive interference peaks of the wave modes. Using this theory, it may be shown that the wave amplitudes associated with each photon exist physically at each calcite crystal detector. Consequently, the quantum mechanics or QED calculations may be shown to have a physical basis. This enables the results of the EPR experiment to be logically understood without invoking hidden variables or non-local effects.
