The proposed interpretation, if it is to count as realism, must say more about the evolution of the state while the argument that more about its dynamics oughtn't to be said (given the no-broadcasting principle) is suggested to be unsound. Nor are the alleged dogmas of quantum mechanics dogmas — on the contrary, the fact that measurements cannot count as primitives is a consequence of realism, not a presupposition of it. And the parallel with special relativity cuts both ways: the dynamical explanations for the length contractions and time dilations demanded by Lorentz in special relativity must indeed be forthcoming, as Einstein later acknowledged. Finally, there is little in the proposed interpretation that is specifically information-theoretic.

Keywords:   Bell–Lorentz pedagogy, constructive theory, information theory, measurements, principle theory, value state, Einstein
