So Richard has wiggled out. It appears Richard is twisting what I say to give himself a reason to capitulate. I guess he is concerned I will win and the counting issue might end up in my favour.
You don't see how everything else fits and the ideas that emerged, like a transition from boson to fermion, are valid alternatives to the absurdity of non-locality?
But you know, keep your enemies closer, I have benefitted from the comments of this group which have improved my understanding and helped clarify the papers. So the bet helped me a lot.
Yes it was fun.
BTW Arto and Marten's paper has no non-locality and is another nail in the coffin of Bell's theorem. It's amazing how so many people accept non-locality, with NO understanding of it, only revelation (weirdness), yet when logical alternatives are presented, they prefer the absurd.
Thanks to all
Dear Bryan (just to you)
You wrote “we are premature to do it now”.
This is an admission that you realise that you will lose the bet under the terms which we negotiated two years ago.
Thank you, it was fun. You know how much I admire your creativity and obstinacy. It was an honour to do this bet with you.
