Shocked by Quantum Theory


For years now I have been worried about some of the absurd self-deception of a few writers and speakers who claim to understand quantum theory and use their version of it to bolster some argument or other.

In the past I have written a fair bit about some of the more preposterous claims that had been misleading enormous numbers of people.

I thought that most of those pieces had been lost after two of my older blogs were hacked – twice! – and needed to be re-built and transferred to a new server.

So I was delighted to find that one of them – Quantum Flapdoodle – has come across.

And this short quotation rather supports what I was saying:

“Anyone who is not shocked by quantum theory has not understood it… Isolated material particles are abstractions, their properties being definable and observable only through their interaction with the other system… Independent reality in the ordinary sense can be ascribed neither to the phenomena nor to the agencies of observation.”

–Niels Bohr (Danish Physicist and, in 1922, Winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics, 1885-1962)
