    Default quantum foundations ? metaphysics?



    https://www.quantamagazine.org/quant...ples-20170830/

    i start having a stomach ache after
    Scientists have been using quantum theory for almost a century now, but embarrassingly they still don’t know what it means. An informal poll taken at a 2011 conference on Quantum Physics and the Nature of Reality showed that there’s still no consensus on what quantum theory says about reality — the participants remained deeply divided about how the theory should be interpreted.
    QM isn't about reality. It is about our model of reality. Being about reality would be about metaphysics (ack! poo!) not about physics. Of course YMMV.

    Now, now, play nice. Just because the other children didn't fully understand the lesson, you shouldn't treat them like idiots just because they are idiots.
