Teleportation of quantum states is shown to be an illusion caused by picturing Einstein‐Podolsky‐Rosen‐Bohm photons as particles separated by arbitrary distance, when in fact they overlap so much that a measurement on one is an observation of both at the same time and place, thereby ruling out nonlocality. However, except for their spin entanglement, they are completely independent of one another, due to the ability of neutral bosons to coexist in the same space. Analysis relative to the photon frame reduces this space to zero, showing how the complete overlapping in the laboratory frame is equivalent to the complete Lorentz contraction of the photon frame.
