What is the true nature of our quantum reality?
For nearly a century, physicists have argued over how to interpret
quantum physics. But reality exists independent of any interpretation.
Ethan Siegel December 27, 2022
In the classical Universe, objects exist with specific properties that
they continue to possess regardless of whether or how recently they've
In the quantum Universe, however, many properties remain in an
indeterminate state until a critical measurement, observation, or
interaction forces the issue.
While many have argued over which interpretation best reflects
reality, you can forget Copenhagen, Many-Worlds, Pilot Waves and all
the others. What remains is what's truly real.
For more than a century, however, nature has shown us that the rules
governing it aren’t local, real, and deterministic after all.
