The apparent random outcome of a quantum measurement is conjectured to be fundamentally determined by the microscopic state of the macroscopic measurement apparatus. The apparatus state thus plays the role of a hidden variable which, in contrast with variables characterizing the measured microscopic system, is shown to lead to a violation of Bell’s inequalities and to agree with standard quantum mechanics. An explicit realization of this interpretation is explored (for details, see ) for a primitive model of cloud chamber inspired by Mott . Being highly non local, this interpretation of quantum mechanics is argued to open the way to faster-than-light information transfer.
