Or is it possible that they did their homework and came to different conclusions than you?uwot wrote: ↑Tue Jun 19, 2018 11:19 am Yeah, yeah, yeah. Understanding the mathematics of QM is very tricky...
Richard Feynman used to say that the most mysterious thing about QM is the double slit experiment. This is one way to conceptualise it (Can't remember who posted it first, but well done them.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIyTZDHuarQ&t=304s
Anyone who is still profoundly shocked by quantum mechanics hasn't done their homework. Or is just easily shocked.
The experiment in the video that you referenced shows the representation of a particle being guided (“piloted”) around by a waving fluid in a shallow container.
Now that is easy to demonstrate with the fluids and liquids that exist within the context of “local” reality.
However, the question is - what is the so-called “pilot wave” made of?
In other words, what exactly is it that is waving with respect to a single particle (one isolated electron) at the “non-local” level of reality?
In what seems to be an effort to rescue the integrity of a particular worldview in which particles themselves do not spread out into waves, isn't the experiment in the video simply introducing another mysterious and inexplicable phenomenon into the mix (i.e., the “pilot wave”) in order to support the theory?
And the point is that if there is a particle AND a wave (as is suggested in the video), then someone has to do some better 'splainin' as to, again, what the wave is made of.
