Dear Dr. Vaidman,
You explained in your revised "Instantaneous measurement of non-local variables", quant-ph/0111124, that a verification measurement can yield the eigenvalues of the nonlocal variables, but can not prepare the eigenstates of the system.
Please see my efforts to zoom on this issue at
I will appreciate the opinion of your colleagues as well. It seems to me that there is too much religious belief involved with the so-called quantum computing [Ref. 1], and I have no idea why many military institutions, such as your MOD, DERA, DARPA, etc., are supporting and funding these beliefs. I think all you need is a brain, not religion.
