After quoting Wikipedia with attribution in the first two paragraphs of his post, Peterson finishes up with a timeline. He seems to attribute the work, with a citation at the end of the next paragraph, but it turns out that the footnote he rearranges and uses is not for those words. It is a reference identical to the footnote used in the work he is actually plagiarizing, right down to the page number, in the exact same position. It is NOT the work whose words he continues to use in his following paragraphs, which I confirmed by reviewing page 683 in the footnote reference.
The text DCP plagiarizes can be found on pages 72-76, plus footnote for page 72, in:
Entangled Minds: Extrasensory Experiences in a Quantum Reality
By Dean Radin
Here is Peterson's post, the words in blue are from the book by Dean Radin:
In 1949, Albert Einstein, who was troubled throughout his life by certain implications of quantum physics, compared quantum theory’s prediction of entangled particles to telepathy.The point of the analogy, of course, was that he rejected as essentially “magical” or “occultic” the notion that separated objects could be entangled at a distance. It was a reductio ad absurdum argument.
(P. A. Schilpp, ed., Albert Einstein, Philosopher-Scientist, The Library of Living Philosophers [Evanston, IL, 1949], 683.)
In 1964, the Irish physicist John Stewart Bell proved mathematically — in what has since been called “Bell’s theorem” — that quantum theory does indeed require “spooky action at a distance,” as he himself and, perhaps, Einstein too, termed it. (Sadly, Bell died unexpectedly in 1990 of a cerebral hemorrhage, only 62 years old and unaware that he had just been nominated for a Nobel Prize, which cannot be awarded posthumously.)
In 1972, physicists Stuart Freedman and John F. Clauser published a successful experimental test of Bell’s theorem. (See “Bell test experiments.”)
In the early 1980s, the French physicist Alain Aspect was able to publish the first widely accepted evidence that “spooky action at a distance” actually exists and occurs.
So, how close is the analogy, really, between telepathy and quantum entanglement?
Here are the relevant excerpts from Dean Radin's book:
[excerpts from pp 72-75, and p 72 footnote]
After the war, in 1949, the Soviet Union tested its first atomic bomb, and Rodgers and Hammerstein's musical South Pacific opened on Broadway. Albert Einstein compared quantum theory's prediction about entangled particles to telepathy [footnote 39]....He used this analogy to imply that quantum theory must be incomplete because he couldn't believe that any separated Objects could be entangled, either at the atomic or human scales…
