All paths lead to ruin

What's really behind all the strange phenomena and obtuse mathematics found in quantum mechanics?

All paths lead to ruin

I really like the closing line in your description, Jim:

"Almost every belief about quantum mechanics can be described in one of these interpretations, and each of these interpretations have some adherents. And each of them, at some level are wrong."

That should offend all adherents to all the interpretations pretty much equally, then :)

It should only offend people who hold tightly to beliefs they can only defend more vehemently than rigorously.

That is an awful sentence.

I'd ask if we want to attract those people or not, but I don't think you get a choice.

I'm not expecting any real outrage about it - we seem to have pretty fun and inquisitive listeners. Which makes sense; if anyone were offended by the imaginative and occasionally cavalier style of the podcast, they wouldn't keep listening.
