Through an administrative error, the author had not been informed.This article has been withdrawn at the request of the Editors. Soon after the publication of this paper was announced, several experts in the field contacted the Editors to report errors. After extensive review, the Editors unanimously concluded that the results are in obvious conflict with a proven scientific fact, i.e., violation of local realism that has been demonstrated not only theoretically but experimentally in recent experiments. On this basis, the Editors decided to withdraw the paper. As a consequence, pages 67–79 originally occupied by the withdrawn article are missing from the printed issue [vol. 373]. The publisher apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.
