Hi , i have this question - it's not an idea , and it's not a theory indeed , it's merely a question - we all know that the theory of relativity is inspired by maxwell theory of electromagnetism , from which the constancy of speed of light in any frame of reference is derived . and we know that the quantum theory in certain aspects make use of S.R , QED - for instance - incorporates S.R in quantum mechanics to arrive to its predictions . and we know that our understanding of the electromagnetic phenomena is modified by QED . now here is the question : if Q.M modifies the classical picture of electromagnetism , and the theory of relativity depends on a result of classical electromagnetism , and Q.M in some aspects depends on S.R , how on god's earth a consistent understanding - theory - is claimed to be achieved ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
