Hi LizR, For example, the commutator that relates observables to each other is different. The statistical relations that can be used to accurately model experimental data is different. Most importantly, the ontologies are very different. Classical physics allows a Laplacean observer to exist, QM does not. There is no such a thing as a "view from nowhere" nor a single narrative of all events in a QM consistent universe.
