If you have some spare time, give a look to
relational vs. realist interpretation.
Mermin's ('Ithaca') interpretation.
The following are *very good* papers ...
It is well possible that physics is about
correlations, and only correlations, as Mermin
is saying. See also Rovelli's ('Relational')
famous interpretation ...
That (imo) is a bit different from saying that
*only correlations* are physically real,
and *values* of quantities being correlated
In fact Mermin has realized the huge problem
of two observers measuring, at the same time,
the same quantum system.
