Death, Quantum, and the Techno-Singularity

Author: István Aranyosi (Bilkent University, PhD.) Quantum mechanics (QM) is whacky. It is hard to offer an interpretation of its formalism in a way that would satisfy everyone in terms of requirements of clarity and intuitiveness. The main culprit is the wave function, an equation that is supposed to describe the behavior of an isolated quantum system. The problem is a conflict between the probabilistic nature of the wave function and the deterministic nature of what we experience, when ...
