Chronological Disordering and the Absence of Correlations Between Infinitely Separated States
Recently we have presented some algebraic formulations of quantum mechanics which would incorporate nonlocality when small distances are involved but would be separable at large distances1,2,3,4. Such asymptotically separable theories are based on the thinking that there should be no correlations between infinitely separated states1,2. Consequently we should remove from the theory observables which could effect such correlations. In particular when infinitely separated in an EPR situation two particles should not be able to interact3. D.R.E. Timson and the present author recently proposed the following thought experiment to illustrate the above situation5.
