Yes, Quantum Mechanics Needs to be Rebuilt

The long article Quantum Theory Rebuilt From Simple Physical Principles in Quanta Magazine tells the same old story again:
  • Scientists have been using quantum theory for almost a century now, but embarrassingly they still don’t know what it means.
  • Some physicists just shrug and say we have to live with the fact that quantum mechanics is weird. 
  • But some researchers want to dig deeper. 
  • If these efforts succeed, it’s possible that all the apparent oddness and confusion of quantum mechanics will melt away, and we will finally grasp what the theory has been trying to tell us. 
  • There’s no guarantee of success — no assurance that quantum mechanics really does have something plain and simple at its heart, rather than the abstruse collection of mathematical concepts used today. 
But there is light in the tunnel: Check out 
offering a new approach based on classical physical principles, which is not weird and can be understood, presented in the upcoming book Real Quantum Mechanics

As usual Lubos Motel on The Reference Frame rushes to hide the truth about the present state of quantum theory by shouting that the Quanta article is anti-quantum crackpot.
