Niels Bohr is famously quoted as saying: 'Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real. If quantum mechanics hasn't profoundly shocked you, you haven't understood it yet.”
----------- Aage Bohr tried to explain something about te quantum domain and (perhaps) about Bohr's interpretation of the quantum "world". http://scitation.aip.org/content/aip/magazine/physicstoday/article/57/10/10. 1063/1.1825253 http://tinyurl.com/njrzdam That was during a debate about another famous quotation of Niels Bohr. http://scitation.aip.org/content/aip/magazine/physicstoday/article/57/2/10. 1063/1.1688051 Among the comments there was also this one: "What I remember most, however, is not Weisskopf's comment, but a story told by Stephan Berko, my freshman physics professor in 1966-67, who was also in the audience at that talk. After listening to the rather inconclusive discussion among Mermin, Weisskopf, and others, Berko recalled something that Bohr said to him - in fact, the only thing Bohr ever said to him directly. Berko had been visiting the Institute for Theoretical Physics in Copenhagen in 1958 and attended a holiday party, which featured a magic show. After watching some particularly baffling magic tricks, Bohr turned to him and said, "It's all done with smoke and mirrors!" -Michael Gerver " -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
