#### Why is Quantum Mechanics Weird?

In her efforts to demystify quantum mechanics, YouTuber Sabine Hossenfelder, has done quite a few videos on the topic. In this video she explains exactly why quantum mechanics is weird. Is it entanglement or superpositions? Schrödinger’s cats? Not quite, really. But the famous Elitzur-Vaidman Bomb Experiment demonstrates well just why quantum mechanics is weird indeed. […]

It’s not surprising that the profound weirdness of the quantum world has inspired some outlandish explanations – nor that these have strayed into the realm of what we might call mysticism. One particularly pervasive notion is the idea that consciousness can directly influence quantum systems – and so influence reality. PBS Space Time examines where […]
