Unfortunately, it seems that there are very few people seriously working on radical ideas like the models proposed by 't Hooft.
My favorite idea is that particles are not real. You could imagine that QM is an effective statistical theory (similar to what 't Hooft says) in which particles appear in a similar way as virtual particles appear in quantum field theory. If the Feynman rules had been discovered by experimentalists, you would have discussions about photons and electrons violating causality except when we observe them... ----- Oorspronkelijk bericht ----- Van: "John M" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Aan: "Saibal Mitra" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> CC: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Verzonden: Saturday, August 14, 2004 04:51 PM Onderwerp: Re: Quantum Rebel - complementarity > Thanks!
