Is Quantum Mechanics Crazy?

Is Quantum Mechanics Crazy?

Everyday objects are composed of such a staggering number of quantum objects that almost all quantum effects are statistically smoothed out to zero and so we don’t see them.

But you can also reverse this.

We are so used to the behavior of everyday objects that when we learn the behavior of their individual quantum components we think it’s totally weird and we start talking about Quantum Mechanics being crazy.

The thing about Quantum Mechanics is not that it’s crazy, but that from where we’re coming from we think it’s crazy.
