    Can basic quantum physics explain all of the traits of the tardis other than the consciousness and living metal?

    No. The branch of physics that explain the TARDIS is called wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey stuff.

    That is true. But wouldn't it be at least theoretically possible that the tardis creates an exact replica of itself in at its desired destination, switches places in Tim and space repeatedly causing the ree ree reee reee reee bum when it teleports

    If by theoretically you mean any existing theory, then no. The show is not really science fiction, in that it never cared much for the drama to be grounded in anything other than the rule of cool. If you try to square it with a scientific mindset, you'll only get frustrated.

    Nope, and this thread doesn't fit within the subforum rules.
