- TL;DR Summary
- Is Quantum physics only a probabilistic forecast of random whizzing electron that we cant track because of our limitation so use probability to compensate.

Is Quantum Mechanics a Probabilistic Forecast of nature?Someone I know told me their interpretation of QM is that QM only a probabilistic forecast of systems like electrons around atoms. I would like someone to analyse this interpretation and say if its valid or not.

According to this person we use probability density because electrons move so fast on the order of femtoseconds its not possible to tell exactly where the electron around an atom is because we dont have the technology to pinpoint electron due to our detectors not being able to predict where the electron will be next due to high speed and erratic random motion. but could in principle so we use a probability density as a forecast of a fast erratic electron trajectory of where an electron is likely to be found. The wavenature arises from the erratic motion when forecasted resembling waves. The atomic orbitals arise from making an average forecast of the electron’s position based on where it has been. For example p orbitals are electrons whizzing around in ultrafast orbits around the nucleus but after many detections the distribution resembles a figure 8 shape so we use the p orbitals to forecast the trajectory. The trajectory for the p orbital is interpreted as erratic orbits which on average resemble a figure 8 shape of the p orbital. However the motion is well defined and follows trajectories its just to fast and erratic we need to use a probabilistic forecast as predicting the path and where the electron will be is too complicated for our technology. The Uncertainty principle is due to the fact if we take a picture of an electron we know where it is but not where its going but to know its velocity we take repeated trials like a motion blur making position uncertain. However a highly intelligent being if they could slow time down would see electrons orbit the nucleus and maybe in the future we could with better technology. This person also says Quantum Mechanics is merely a forecasting tool for the motion of electrons moving too fast to track so we use probability. This person also says Electrons really are billiardballlike points with defined position and momenta we just dont have the tools to pinpoint them so we use Probabilities as a forecast to compensate. This is what the interpretation says basically and it seems plausible buy im not sure.

I want to know if this interpretation is valid or wrong. If its right I want examples of evidence for it. If it’s wrong I want examples of actual physical laws it violates. I want an in-depth answer as to why it is wrong.
