B Quantum mechanics and reality of matter

  1. Feb 25, 2016 #1
    Hi
    Do Quantum Mechanics negates the reality of matter and proves un-reality of matter ?

    No. It just tells us that matter behaves differently than we would expect based on our everyday experiences.

    well can it be possible to to know the reason behind its such obscure behavior or nature?

    So what does it conclude for the reality of matter ?

    Physics answers "how" questions, not "why" questions.

    "Matter," defined in the usual sense of the work, is real.

    Quantum mechanics concludes that matter has all the properties needed to guarantee that we can sit on it, play with it, build houses, airplanes, and computers, and conduct an online discussion about the properties of matter. Thus it concludes that matter is as real as you experience it in everyday life. And it does much more: It provides (together with corresponding experiments) all the information that go into the technology we are all enjoying at the present time.

    Well , can we say that matter in itself has a non matter or soul and matter is in fact the manifestation of the soul or non matter?

    No. Absolutely not. Nothing you've said even makes any sense. Thread locked for failing to stick to mainstream science.
