Abstract

This paper argues that the solution to the problem of entanglement lies in viewing entanglement in the context of the medium of aether as conceived by James Clerk Maxwell, rather than as a phenomenon of quantum mechanics.  It is argued that the apparent correlation of 'spin up' and 'spin down' photons that is said to constitute entanglement, is in fact a phenomenon caused by polarization of the medium of aether, not by travelling photons as envisaged by quantum mechanics.
