Deuteron photo-decay with subsequent proton detection represents an experiment similar to Bohm’s version of the EPR arrangement replacing the entangled spin singlet state of the two-fermion system by entangled isospin states. Dropping the conception of truth, the detection as charge symmetry breaking event a posteriori leads up to a pre-existing proton identifying the second possibly far apart nucleon as neutron. That explains what the entangled isospin state predicts without assumption of a superluminal correlation.
