## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

In Copenhagen Interpretation, the wave function is just a mathematical tool that has no physical reality.

In Bohmian Mechanics, the wave function has objective reality as some kind of field.

Why can't we have both where the wave function has objective reality as some kind of field and yet the particles has no definite properties or physical existence before measurement and they only literally physicalize upon measurements obeying the formula that squaring the wave function gives the probability of its location??

What principle avoid a hybrid model of the two above?

I think the wave function can't be physical in the Copenhagen Interpretation because it is a complex function. Why. In Bohmian, isn't the wave function a complex function too??
