Maybe there should be a step between I practically invented it and "I understand it a bit" for people (definetly not me) who understand it a lot but still wouldnt say they kenw so much they practically invented it.

The basic principles, I understand, but certainly not the mathematics (I'm only 14!).

I've had formal training in it so, I'm perfectly happy with anything at undergraduate level, though I do have to refer back to my textbooks quite alot.

There's a saying that if you understand quantum mechanics you don't understand it.

General ideas? yes.

Some of the general mathematics? sort of.

Some of the advanced mathematical concepts? not yet :smile:.

Speaking of Picasso, from my per-
spective quantum mechanics does
for physics what Picasso did for
the human figure.

And please don't take that the
wrong way: I think Picasso was
a horrible artist.

So you find it aesthically unpleasing? Well, physical theories are just meant to be functional.

In general yes. Most of the conclusions seem to have been drawn in a logical manner , it is when you cannot explain things logically that the question begins to get a bit vague.
