Of course here we are speaking of spooky actions as possible

*physical* effects, involving, or not, superluminal informations.

So we are not speaking of spooky actions as *epistemological*

effects (such as Rothstein, Page, Hardy, Peres, Cerf, Mermin,

etc. described many times, and also Bohr, but in obscure terms).

An interesting way of accepting *physical* non-locality

(better, non-separability) has been proposed by Ne'eman

[Found. Physics, 16, (1986), 361]. Ne'eman assumes that

gauge theories should be regarded as geometric constructs,

that is to say fiber bundle manifolds. One can construct

a strongly correlated manifold (called principal fiber

bundle) in which a structure group have global characteristic,

such that operators are non-localized. Ne'eman says that

what makes QM so weird is just our habit to visualize

events in the usual space, and not in abstract spaces.

Another possibility is that one suggested by Feynman

[Int. J. Theor. Phys., 21, (1982), 467] and Mueckenheim

[Phys. Rep., 133, (1986), 337] and Scully, Walther, and

Schleich (1994), that is to say the 'negative probability

solution'. This solution, imo, is something in between

the *physical* and the *epistemological*. But it is not

new. Dirac [Proc. Roy. Soc., 180A, (1941), 1] wrote

"Thus negative energies and probabilities should be

considered simply as things which do not appear in

experimental results."

And of course there is also Costa de Beauregard's

theory about retrocausation, and many more similar

models.
