Quantum Mechanics Quotes From The Experts

1. “Quantum mechanics is certainly imposing. But an inner voice tells me that it is not yet the real thing.” ― Albert Einstein

2. “Quantum mechanics is very impressive. But an inner voice tells me that it is not yet the real thing.” ― Niels Bohr

3. “The more success the quantum theory has, the sillier it looks.” ― Albert Einstein

4. “The great thing about quantum physics is that it forces us to see the world in a different way.” ― Stephen Hawking

5. “Quantum mechanics is the most important development in human thought since Isaac Newton.” ― Richard Feynman

6. “Quantum mechanics is really about information, about how to represent and manipulate it.” ― David Deutsch

7. “Quantum mechanics is the first thing that really made me feel like I didn’t understand the world.” ― Brian Greene

8. “Quantum mechanics is the keystone of the arch upon which our understanding of the physical world is built.” ― Murray Gell-Mann

9. “The theory of quantum mechanics will always be just that – a theory. It can never be proven but will remain the most accurate way we have of understanding the behavior of matter and energy.” ― Stephen Hawking

10. “Quantum mechanics is a triumph of the human mind, and a reminder of our limitations.” ― Brian Greene

Famous Quotes on Quantum Mechanics

11. “Einstein said that if quantum mechanics were correct then the world would be crazy. Einstein was right – the world is crazy.” ― Daniel M. Greenberger

12. “The [quantum] theory reminds me a little of the system of delusions of an exceedingly intelligent paranoiac.” ― Albert Einstein

13. “Quantum wall creates the time, temperature and space – kind of optical delusion of quantum consciousness.” ― Amit Ray

14. “Six qudits virtual photon simulator is our first approach to develop the behavior of 100 billion neurons and to build the core quantum machine learning platform.” ― Amit Ray

15. “Quantum mechanics describes nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense. And yet it fully agrees with the experiment. So I hope you can accept nature as She is – absurd.” ― Richard P. Feynman

16. “The role of gender in society is the most complicated thing I’ve ever spent a lot of time learning about, and I’ve spent a lot of time learning about quantum mechanics.” ― Randall Munroe

17. “It would take a civilization far more advanced than ours, unbelievably advanced, to begin to manipulate negative energy to create gateways to the past. But if you could obtain large quantities of negative energy—and that’s a big “IF”—then you could create a time machine that apparently obeys Einstein’s equation and perhaps the laws of quantum theory.” ― Michio Kaku

18. “The very nature of the quantum theory … forces us to regard the space-time coordination and the claim of causality, the union of which characterizes the classical theories, as complementary but exclusive features of the description, symbolizing the idealization of observation and description, respectively.” ― Niels Bohr

19. “Beyond the corridor of our space-time there are infinite numbers of universes, each of them is governed by its own set of laws and physics.” ― Amit Ray

20. “It seems clear that the present quantum mechanics is not in its final form. Some further changes will be needed, just about as drastic as the changes made in passing from Bohr’s orbit theory to quantum mechanics. Some day a new quantum mechanics, a relativistic one, will be discovered, in which we will not have these infinities occurring at all. It might very well be that the new quantum mechanics will have determinism in the way that Einstein wanted.” ― Paul Dirac

21. “Quantum theory provides us with a striking illustration of the fact that we can fully understand a connection though we can only speak of it in images and parables.” ― Werner Heisenberg

22. “At the heart of quantum mechanics is a rule that sometimes governs politicians or CEOs – as long as no one is watching, anything goes.” ― Lawrence M. Krauss

23. “Quantum attention functions are the keys to quantum machine learning.” ― Amit Ray

24. “One can still say that quantum mechanics is the key to understanding magnetism. When one enters the first room with this key there are unexpected rooms beyond, but it is always the master key that unlocks each door.” ― John H. Van Vleck

25. “The Quantum Mechanic will fix your car, but it won’t work unless you observe him fixing it” ― Dean Cavanagh

26. “The more we delve into quantum mechanics the stranger the world becomes; appreciating this strangeness of the world, whilst still operating in that which you now consider reality, will be the foundation for shifting the current trajectory of your life from ordinary to extraordinary.” ― Kevin Michel

27. “Classical mechanics gave us a deterministic view of the world. Quantum mechanics, conversely, gives us a probabilistic view instead. According to Newton, if you know the cause af an event, you can predict the outcome. According to M.Born, you can only predict how likely that outcome will be.” ― Leonid V. Azaroff

Quotes on Know The Quantum World

28. “Seriousness of mind was a prerequisite for understanding Newtonian physics. I am not convinced it is not a handicap in understanding quantum theory.” ― Connie Willis

29. “Our inner experiences are the results of the quantum attention functions. The universe is an ocean of quantum attention functions. We also can have direct access to the experiences of others just by focusing our attention functions.” ― Amit Ray

30. “Quantum attention functions are the bridges between the mental and the physical.” ― Amit Ray

31. “People get a lot of confusion because they keep trying to think of quantum mechanics as classical mechanics” ― Sidney Coleman

32. “A university student attending lectures on general relativity in the morning and others on quantum mechanics in the afternoon might be forgiven for thinking that his professors are fools, or have neglected to communicate with each other for at least a century.” ― Carlo Rovelli

33. “Relativity and quantum mechanics have demonstrated clearly that what you find out with instruments is true relative only to the instrument you’re using, and where that instrument is located in space-time. So there is no vantage point from which ‘real’ reality can be seen; we’re all looking from the point of view of our own reality tunnels.” ― Robert Anton Wilson

34. “Some physicists suspect that the theory must eventually arrive at the understanding that the universe itself is a quantum phenomenon. That what quantum mechanics ultimately describes is the universe.” ― Cormac McCarthy

35. “Special relativity may be summarized as the discovery that there exists a maximum velocity for all physical systems. Quantum mechanics can be summarized as the discovery that there exists a maximum of information for each physical system.” ― Carlo Rovelli

36. “The answer is that each element corresponds to one solution of the main equation of quantum mechanics. The whole of chemistry emerges from a single equation.” ― Carlo Rovelli

37. “A scientist is someone trying to see the order in chaos. Sometimes it simply can’t be done, as science tells us via quantum mechanics and chaos theory. A thing can be one way or the other without any means to predict why it is so.” ― Andrew Mayne

38. “According to string theory in quantum mechanics, the core of energy and matter on a subatomic level is a vibrating, string-like filament that is identical in all energy and matter.” ― Russell Anthony Gibbs

39. “Based upon quantum mechanics, our physical reality should not be solid. Most likely our physical reality is an elaborate illusion within our own consciousness and the collective consciousness of the Universe/God.” ― Russell Anthony Gibbs

40. “I think that quantum mechanics has revealed three aspects of the nature of things: granularity, indeterminacy, and the relational structure of the world.” ― Carlo Rovelli

41. “All the calculus, quantum mechanics, and languages in the world are worthless pieces of information if they are not brought to the service of the society.” ― Abhijit Naskar

42. “Quantum mechanics has a similar problem, a problem related to zero-point energy. The laws of quantum mechanics treat particles such as the electron as points; that is, they take up no space at all. An electron is a zero-dimensional object, and its very zero-like nature ensures that scientists don’t even know the electron’s mass or charge.” ― Charles Seife

43. “In string theory, zero has been banished from the universe; there is no such thing as zero distance or zero time. This solves all the infinity problems of quantum mechanics.” ― Charles Seife

44. “Quantum mechanics and experiments with particles have taught us that the world is a continuous, restless swarming of things; a continuous coming to light and disappearance of ephemeral entities. A set of vibrations, as in the switched-on hippy world of the 1960s. A world of happenings, not of things.” ― Carlo Rovelli
