Whose new face is a death-mask of the last
Despairing effort before it all went sour.

In science:
Section 3 identiﬁes an “independentapparatus” assumption (discussed in section 4), and shows the “independent-apparatus” assumption to be closely related to the “no-conspiracy” assumption.
Bell inequalities for random fields
The prohibition of correlations of a with c, and of b with c, the “independent-apparatus” assumption, is closely related to the “no-conspiracy” assumption.
Bell inequalities for random fields
Now to derive equation (17), we have to make only the “independent-apparatus” assumption, so that we can change a → a′ without changing c (or b) and we can change b → b′ without changing c (or a), with the “no-conspiracy” assumption playing no rˆole.
Bell inequalities for random fields
As for the no-conspiracy and independent-apparatus assumptions, there is no requirement that the no-correlation assumption be violated by much, only that the totality of correlations of all three kinds be such that the dynamical evolution will result in the violation of Bell inequalities at the time of measurement.
Bell inequalities for random fields
This is quite a natural assumption for a classical two particle model, because the two particles are imagined to be emitted from a single point in the past, but it is a strong and unjustiﬁable assumption for a random ﬁeld model.
