Actually, the experiments of Schmidt et al, and the evidence cited in
"Wisdom of Crowds" suggest a QM model. Of course, anyone can--and
will!--deride an experiment as not being "real"---after all, that's how the
science game is played, ;-), but prediction is one of the gold standards
for an experimental model, and Schmidt's work, though not explanatory
(neither is QM) it *is* predictive. And if there's a difference between
singular experience and plural experiences, then maybe it may be worthwhile
to apply it to the thought problems here.
