Physics and Philosophy - Thoughts on the Implications of Quantum Mechanics, and Other Matters #10i

10. On Quantum Mechanics:
i. A running joke among physicists states that if one were to ask ten physicists to define quantum mechanics, you would get ten different answers. They would then commence to arguing over whose interpretation was right. Perhaps they all are?[10] Perhaps their intuitive development is stunted by an education that over-emphasizes formal and/or simplistic supporting mathematics. “Yes, it’s nice this equation proves a mathematical formalistic point. But what does it all mean?

[10] (As supported by observation.)
