Quantum Nonlocality its every ware

The phenomenon by which measurements made at a subatomic level necessarily refutes the notions of local realism is called Quantum Nonlocality. Put simply it says that particles of matter are not restricted to local interactions and that they can have interactions outside their local system with no limit on distance.

Bell's Theorem was developed by John Stewart Bell and shows that there is no physical theory of local hidden variables that can ever reproduce all of the predictions of Quantum Mechanics. Bell's Theorem leaves open the possibility of non-local hidden variables.

The implications are that subatomic particles clearly exhibit non-local behavior showing that our notions of location do not apply at the fundamental levels of reality. Quantum Nonlocality creates a link between the physical and metaphysical.
