Fine tuning: Weirder quantum effects would be wilder than current ones

From Stuart Clark at :

Particles can become entangled when they interact, and once they do, no matter how far apart they are, measuring the properties of one automatically fixes the properties of the other – changes its socks, as it were.

Einstein decried this “spooky action at a distance”, yet many experiments have shown it is an essential ingredient of our world. “Without quantum entanglement, we could not have quantum theory as we know it, and quantum theory is the basis of chemistry, our semiconductor industry, even life,” says Caslav Brukner of the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information in Vienna, Austria.

But here’s the really weird thing. There’s nothing stopping the quantum world having different levels of underlying correlation. (paywall) More.

That’s probably where the fine-tuning comes in.

'apparent fine-tuning' ! The degree to which the wilful nescience of atheists extends, ought to be beyond belief. Reminds me of one of Dawkins' all-time greatest 'gems', that the world only appears to be designed ! I had been labouring under the impression that science was actually predicated on design. Axel
