  • morals;
  • violation of Bell's inequality - not requiring superluminal matter;
  • Lorentz invariant theories, violations of inequality - formulable;
  • violations, single preferred reference frame - undetectable by empirical means;
  • choices, empirically indistinguishable theories - on aesthetic grounds;
  • design theories, empirically equivalent - to Special Theory of Relativity;
  • wormholes, points in space-time - correlations enforced, not signals sent;
  • postulation of mind-independent - and why determinate physical states work well;
  • Quantum theory and Relativity - not contradicting each other directly, neither reconciled;
  • real challenge, falling to theologians of physics - justifying ways of a deity
