Unformatted text preview: If one assumes the values of the orientation are determinate, but unknowable (assumes hidden variable theories are correct), one would expect the electrons to have a different spin at least one third of the time. Aspect's experiment had "weird" results. It revealed that the electrons had different orientations 1/4 of the time, confirming that quantum mechanics is either literally correct, or that hidden variable theories need to be non-local (both conclusions support non-locality) since the experimental evidence implies that one electron affects the other instantaneously....
