This is a problem for existing quantum nonlocality verification techniques in gauging security concerns.
Quantum nonlocality is important in the development of new global quantum information networks, which will have transmission security guaranteed by the laws of physics.
Nonlocality arises naturally in the formalism of twistor theory.
It implies that the nonlocality effect is more significant for the shorter nanobeams and this effect tends to decrease the stiffness of the nanobeam.
Therefore, quantum nonlocality and entanglement can perhaps be interpreted as locally realistic wave phenomena.
The third section establishes the motivation underneath the activation of nonlocality and consequently, we present an overview of the currently known activation scenarios.
9) On the other hand, the effort for experimental verification of the nonlocality of the quantum theory had been continued by Clauser and his collaborators (10) from the late 1960s.
These problems include the failure of the change paradigm in Aristotle--substantial change does not involve going down to prime matter and renewing with a different form; the inadequacy of Aristotle's place theory of motion; nonlocality in quantum systems (visible on a macroscopic scale); and the probabilistic nature of reality, which is fundamental and not an artifact of our descriptions, to mention only a few.
The holographic principle indicates a possible nonlocality mechanism in any vacuum-dominated Friedmann universe.
Years later experiments were carried out that confirmed the existence of this "spooky action at a distance" in the proof of Bell's theorem or nonlocality.

Morton (2011) in his reflections on hyperobjects highlights that we are having encounters in physics that would suggest nonlocality has been observed in visible objects, that time may travel at multiple speeds, and that signals between entities may be able to travel faster than light.
