are formulated, while the top layer formulates singular causal propositions. The derivative general causal propositions of the middle layer (Part II) are constrained by the metaphysical superstructure of physical theories (i.e. the principles they define) via the probability dependence of events. The probability dependence is derived either by counterfactual analysis or by identification of causal differencemakers. (Woodward’s widely discussed manipulationist account of causation based on… Expand

It is shown that the quantum correlations and quantum states corresponding to the Bell basis states, which uniquely produce the Tsirelson bound for the Clauser–Horne–Shimony–Holt (CHSH) quantity, can be derived from conservation per no preferred reference frame (NPRF). Expand

Quantum States as Ordinary Information

This paper develops the case that there is a plausible underlying reality: one actual spacetime-based history, although with behavior that appears strange when analyzed dynamically (one time-slice at a time), by using a simple model with no dynamical laws. Expand

It is widely held that it is difficult, if not impossible, to apply causal theory to the domain of quantum mechanics. However, there are several recent scientific explanations that appeal crucially… Expand
