After studying both areas of classical and quantum physics in some depth, I've reached the conclusion classical physics is more elegant and ingenious than quantum physics.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Newton's law of gravitation is elegant because its sheer simplicity allows us to map the trajectory of satellites.

Classical physics is a refinement of everday life. Quantum physics is a refinement of classical physics.

Therefore the notions of classical physics must have required an absolute genius to refine from everyday life - such as Newton. With quantum physics however, the foundations are already in place.
