    Abstract

    The quantum potential approach is applied to a'delayed choice'experiment considered by Wheeler (1978), and it is shown that there is no need to conclude that the past has had no existence except insofar as it is recorded in the present. A simple and intelligible account of a typical delayed-choice experiment is given. The result indicates that there is a definable and defined overall process that includes both the observer-participator and the rest of the universe in one undivided whole.
