Karl Popper asserted, in brief, that all theories are eventually falsifiable. What of a theory (quantum mechanics?) that embodies probabilities such that its truth and falsity are apparent a priori (a violation of Goedel's logic?) If probabilistic theories are proved necessarily falsifiable, such a proof would indicate a method of generalizing quantum mechanics, I believe.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
