Jarrett Completeness and Superluminal Signals

Abstract
Jarrett has demonstrated that "strong locality," one of the conditions used by Bell to derive his well known inequality, is equivalent to the conjunction of two other conditions which he calls "hidden locality" and "completeness." He has also demonstrated that if it is possible to control the hidden states of the measured system, then violations of hidden locality can be used to transmit information superluminally; and that this is not so with respect to violations of completeness. This he has taken to mean that it is not possible to use violations of completeness to do so under any circumstances. In this essay, it is argued that such violations can be used to do so, if one other condition is satisfied.
