    It's very interesting to see how the different models/interpretations of QM lead to different insights. If people had kept thinking of QM in the orthodox manner, I don't think a lot of these discoveries would be made.

    Could you perhaps summarize in a few sentences how the Bohmian approach with its quantum potential explains better the nonlinearities of the sweeper effect? And how is the Standard view compatible with those effects too?
