An anti-quantum crackpot article in Quanta Magazine







The Quanta Magazine hasn't been hijacked by anti-quantum zealots for some time but this hiatus was compensated yesterday when Quantum Theory Rebuilt From Simple Physical Principles written by Philip Ball was released. Well, yes, even though crackpots generally find this simple point hard to understand, quantum theory is built on simple physical principles – they are known as the universal postulates of quantum mechanics. It goes on: 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... Scientists who are up to their job have known what quantum mechanics means since 1925 or 1926. The fact that there's no "consensus" doesn't imply that scientists don't know what quantum mechanics means. The non-existence of consensus follows from the fact that the stupid people have been asked what they think about a theory that dramatically surpasses their intellectual abilities. How could they agree? They can't agree because they can't understand because they are stupid.

Again, the axioms of quantum mechanics look arbitrary and arcane to you because you're a bunch of stupid animals --Luboš Motl--

If you're not an idiot and you compare them, you will conclude that the axioms of quantum mechanics are deeper, more revolutionary, and more universally valid than those of relativity --Luboš Motl--
