The major problem I have with hidden variable theories is this: Even if you find hidden variable solutions which would render quantum physics unnecessary, you'd still be left with the ultraviolet catastrophe problem.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

You can use holographic principle, alternate realities, determinism or any other interpretation. And yet we'd still be right back where we were 120 years ago- trying to find a mathematical model that accurately calculates energy output across the electromagnetic spectrum.

The best model that we have for shorter wavelengths will still yield widely inaccurate results (i.e., ultraviolet catastrophe).
