I don't believe in superposition or wavefunction collapse. Quantum mechanics is right but the interpretations are wrong.

>> No.11561766

That's a very 1920 kind of concern, you're not a lone.

>> No.11561796

I also don't believe in general relativity. The mathematical framework is valid but the interpretation is wrong. Simultaneity is not relative, and as such, the speed of light is not the same for all observers relative to the observer (however, the perceived speed of light may be the same for all observers relative to the observer).

You're right not to, they don't make intuitive sense. It's based on logical positivism. Scientists are stuck in a philosophy where the only good form of epistemic justification is our ability to observe it. It's ridiculous to assume that the only properties which are real are those that we can measure and know.

Look into Bohm's theory, it's a coherent interpretation that doesn't require superpositions or wavefunction collapses.

You might find pilot wave theory interesting. The interpretation keeps particles as particles but also explains interference patterns and such.

>> No.11563857

Quantum mechanics is sound. The collapse seems hard to swallow at first thought, but that's because most people aren't looking at it correctly. They assume the collapse happens the moment before we make an observation, but in actuality all the variables were already entangled together a long time ago, meaning the reality we observe is not constantly experiencing collapses, we're merely observing the result of a collapse that happened a long, long time ago.

>> No.11563862

mathematically, that's all superposition is. the whole nonsense of being "in multiple states at the same time" is pop science mumbo jumbo meant to make retards think they know the first think about physics. your stance on the subject reveals you to be as much.

>> No.11563930

>the whole nonsense of being "in multiple states at the same time"
Actually, the claim is that it's in neither state, not that it's in both. Of course, the scientists who believe that are retards, but you are an even bigger retard for not realizing that they believe that.

>> No.11563933

That's why the phrase "shut up and calculate" exists. The best interpretation is no interpretation at all. I don't know who is paying Sean Carroll to spread the MWI nonsense, but he needs to go away.

No, pop-sci claims it's "both at once". Or do you mean you claim it's neither? That's also not correct, since you're complete rejecting superposition. Unless you're not OP, in which case I have no desire to check what it was you claim or claim not.

I'm guessing you didn't read this. What they conclude is that we'd still have to accept non-intuitive ideas which doesn't at all exclude Bohm's configurational spaces. It's not like wave collapses are anymore counter-intuitive. >>11563456

Done by Bohr's grandson btw.

>> No.11564845

I think you’re confusing Bohm with Bohr.

“ Early on, de Broglie did offer a kind of compromise, a version of his theory that was promulgated again in 1952 by the physicist David Bohm, and which is now known as Bohmian mechanics or de Broglie-Bohm theory. In this picture, there’s an abstract wave function that extends through space — an entity that’s just as mysterious in this theoretical framework as it is in the Copenhagen interpretation — as well as real particles somewhere in it. Proofs in the 1970s showed that de Broglie-Bohm theory makes exactly the same predictions as standard quantum mechanics. However, with one element of classical reality restored — concrete particles — new mysteries arise, like how or why a mathematical wave function that’s spread everywhere in space is bolted in certain places to physical particles. “Quantum mechanics is not less weird from that perspective,” Tomas Bohr said. Most physicists agree, but it’s really just a matter of taste, since the experimental predictions are identical.”

Bohr realizes it in no way disproves Bohm.

Go fuck yorrself, you literal human fuckhole.

>> No.11565442

That's not correct. You can't have wavefunction collapse without superposition it's the opposite. Superposition is a mathematical artifact of the linearity of differential equations, whereas wavefunction collapse says that observations are going to cause an observed state to be one of the various nodes that are the solution to the differential equation.

So its basically the other way around.

No, that's what superposition is. It's not "pop sci" it's the literal actual physics and math. Superposition DOES MEAN '"it's both spin up AND spin down at the same time".

This. We limit our understanding of things because our own perception is inherently based on what we can measure, and in quantum physics that alters the hidden truth.
