While browsing this festive morning I came across Peter Woit's "(his Oct. 3rd 2011 'Not Even Wrong') statements that: "the fundamental problem of the interpretation of quantum mechanics (is): why don't we see superpositions " and that: "the confusing question is ....how classical behaviour emerges during a measurement process" . To me this looks like a good summing up of the unsettling nature of microscopic Quantum Mechanics, which not long ago (2012) was still puzzling folk as clever as Steven Weinberg (Arxiv 1109.6462v4). When puzzling it can help to consider analogous mysteries. It struck me that in this case we are always facing a rather similar macroscopic one, the mundane but mysterious distinction between past, present and future. We recall the fixed past, live in an ever-changing present and strive to predict an unknown future. The collapse of the wave function in Quantum Mechanics seems to me rather like, and perhaps just as mysterious , or as familiar as this macroscopic transition from past to future we continually experience. Perhaps we should find Quantum mechanics no more mysterious than everyday experience; superpositions are just descriptive guesses of how the intangible microcosmic future might turn out? Or is this characterisation just festive optimism?
