In that case, you misapply logic, don't understand Occam;s razor and don't realize that Whitehead was wrong.<quoted text>

Logic. Occams razor. And, of course, I read Whiteheads Process and Reality....

Yes, E&M is much stronger than gravity. It is what keeps the electrons in their orbitals around atoms, etc. But gravity does have an effect: particles fall in a gravitational well. That is also an observed effect. In fact, the acceleration due to gravity on an electron is the same as for a macroscopic object. What we do NOT have is a quantum theory of gravity, where the gravitational force itself is quantized.Really? Well now, compared to the other forces that act on particles, gravity is basically non existant. Electrostatic force is something like 10^40 times stronger than gravity which means that gravity has about as much affect on a particle as a fart on a windstorm.

No, exactly the opposite. Most of the paradoxes' of quantum mechanics come about because people assume that quantum particles act like classical particles.So youre trying to understand quantum mechanics in terms of classical mechanics? LOL

No, we actually have the description. It is called quantum mechanics.Which is a verbose way of saying....were still working on it. Thats what I said.

And 'solid' planets are mostly empty space. The cross section for interaction of a neutrino is much smaller than that for an electron.Wrong. Neutrino particles pass through solid objects as large as planets, bubba.

Well, Heisenberg was right about this, as has been verified repeatedly over the last 80 years.Aaaah yes....that ol measurement problem described by Heisenberg et al. LOL

if you get your science from journalists, you will have many misunderstandings. I would suggest you read actual science journals for such. Entangled particles do not communicate.

No, you called it mystical and magical. It is neither. We understand how these things work. it is often counter-intuitive, but quantum mechanics gives the description and allows us to make accurate predictions. In every situation, including the highly counter-intuitive ones, it has been verified.Counterintuitive things like particles dont behave in ways classical mechanics predicts? Thats exactly what I said, bubba.

Now, when was the last time you solved the Schrodinger equation for any situation?
