Study: Science fiction is not as weird as the reality of quantum physics

According to the eminent science writer John Horgan, a “radical quantum hypothesis” creates doubt about objective reality: The author of Mind-body issues explains that, although quantum mechanics has been confirmed by countless experiments as well as computer chips, it “defies common sense”. Specifically, it creates doubt about what “the facts” …
