Please stop using the words "Quantum Physics"

Thu 01 February 2007 | tags: Rants

This word, Quantum Physics, I do not think it means what you think it means.

I mean, c'mon people, if you haven't sat down with pen and paper to think about "quantum theory" then please just stop using these words. This isn't some "crystal shit" or "new-agey hocus pocus", it's a real science with real people working out real problems with it.

Sorry, had to get that out. JoDee and I just watched "What the *bleep* do we know", and while I admire the actual scientists who understand what this "Quantum Physics" is, I think the producers of the film used it as a synonym for another word that has lost all meaning in the mainstream parlance: "probability".
