There has been a great deal of debate surrounding the issue of whether it is possible for a single photon to exhibit nonlocality. A number of schemes have been proposed that claim to demonstrate this effect, but each has been met with significant opposition. The objecti... View more

    [8] “The term 'particle' survives in modern physics but very little of its classical meaning remains. A particle can now best be defined as the conceptual carrier of a set of variates. . . It is also conceived as the occupant of a state defined by the same set of variates... It might seem desirable to distinguish the 'mathematical fictions' from 'actual particles'; but it is difficult to find any logical basis for such a distinction. 'Discovering' a particle means observing certain effects which are accepted as proof of its existence.” Eddington, A. S. Fundamental Theory, (Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1942) pp. 30-31.
