Abstract

According to the no-signaling theorem, in EPR-Bohm experiments or Bell-type experiments, one experimenter's statistic does not depend on the other experimenter's choice of measurement when they are spacelike separated. In this paper, I argue that this is not wholly correct. It is shown that in a EPR-Bohm experiment with reversible measurements, one experimenter's statistic, which is in principle inaccessible, depends on the other experimenter's choice of measurement when they are spacelike separated in a single-world unitary quantum theory. This presents the first example of ``perception'' at a distance at the observational level. Possible implications of this new effect such as violation of special relativity are also discussed.
