Main Question or Discussion Point
It seems to me that so far in quantum mechanics, because we have yet to establish probability patterns for, say, what the spin of a photon is, we have made it some mystical thing that we can only know by measuring it. I don't really buy that; is the result of a lottery impossible to know until it is done? No, because we know the probability of different results. So why could it not be that we just have yet to find a probability function for the spin of a photon?
