abstract = {The violation of Bell inequalities by quantum physical experiments disproves all relativistic micro causal, classically real models, short Local Realistic Models (LRM). Non-locality, the infamous ?spooky interaction at a distance? (A. Einstein), is already sufficiently ?unreal? to motivate modifying the ?realistic? in ?local realistic?. This has led to many worlds and finally many minds interpretations.
We introduce a simple many world model that resolves the Einstein Podolsky Rosen paradox. The model starts out as a classical LRM, thus clarifying that the many worlds concept alone does not imply quantum physics. Some of the desired ?non-locality?, e.g. anti-correlation at equal measurement angles, is already present, but Bell?s inequality can of course not be violated. A single and natural step turns this LRM into a quantum model predicting the correct probabilities. Intriguingly, the crucial step does obviously not modify locality but instead reality: What before could have still been a direct realism turns into modal realism. This supports the trend away from the focus on non-locality in quantum mechanics towards a mature structural realism that preserves micro causality.}
