The thing I love the most about quantum physics is the watering down and chewing up of the material for the public. This way there is a nice thick layer of almost-understandings and half truths on the level that everybody feels comfortable with.
And there was never any part of physics that has been the base of so many no-budget low quality animation YouTube videos. Not even the global association of cats playing piano or sneezing panda cubs have that much clickable coverage.
I have recently heard PETA is starting a campaign against quantum physics, with doctor Schrödinger as their target of criticism, for his possible harming of animals. Or not.
Quantum shmantum is the new mambo jumbo. I am not saying it is not true. It might be. But it is definitely not a paradigm shift like people expect it to be. Maybe it's just a matter of time. My paradigm didn’t shift even one centimeter.
A falling toast still obey the rules of gravity I know and experienced all my life and if there is any physics law we can always rely on it is Murphy's and even though the toast maybe falling both on the buttered side and the other side simultaneously in different dimensions, for some strange reason in the dimension I happen to live in, it is always the buttered side that hits my carpet in the end.
And this is exactly why I love quantum mechanics. And why I can't stand quantum mechanics. At the same time of course. True, in only 7 out of the 11 known dimensions, but still. I love it so. No I don’t.
I've had it.
I am going to open the box and kill that damn cat once and for all.
