Quantum mechanics is strange. But I bet you already knew that. What’s worse, even to physicists it is really strange. And even though physicists use the theory with ease and obtain remarkably accurate predictions in most cases, when it comes to the philosophical understanding of the theory, everybody feels lost. As an example, check out […]
