**Jaynes vs. Bell **

"The measurement at A at time t does not change the real physical situation at B; but it changes our state of knowledge about that situation, and therefore it changes the predictions we are able to make about B at some time t 0 . Since this is a matter of logic rather than physical causation, there is no action at a distance and no di culty with relativity [also, it does not matter whether t 0 is before, equal to, or after t".Clearing up the Mysteries, by Jaynes

A critical discussion of Jayne's point of view can be found here.
