If anything, I'm of the 'shut up and calculate' viewpoint on QM. As far as I can see, most of the philosophies of QM fail because they attempt to explain QM based on classical ideas and that is exactly the wrong way around. You explain the *old* theory by using the *new* one.<quoted text>
Which of the 10 odd theories or positions on quantum mechanics are you appealing to?
I am neither affirming nor denying such. All of the following are possible given our current state of knowledge:And are you denying the universe has a cause?
1) The universe has no cause.
2) The universe has multiple causes.
3) The universe has a single cause.
4) The concept of causality is meaningless when applied to the universe.
Of the four, the last seems most likely, followed by the first two.
