Space-Time Quantum Non-Locality: Does Palatial Twistor Theory Suggest an Objective Mathematical Framework?



An important initial motivation for twistor theory was David Bohm’s version of the EPR conundrum which led to John Bell’s convincing demonstration that quantum physics must be non-local in some deep sense. Twistor theory, subsequently led to a fundamentally non-local description of massless quantum particles. Recent developments suggest that a novel approach—palatial twistor theory—may eventually provide an objective non-local picture of general-relativistic quantum physics.
