What's your opinion on Quantum Physics?

That is yet to be proven as undeniable fact in quantum physics

Can easily be explained. But as I said before, why would it it all out again when it is on.

From an electronics standpoint, we can move past the theoretical onto some actual practical things that relate the quantum world to the spiritual world.

Specifically I am talking about 2 different electronic component behaviors: Tunnel Diodes, and Shot noise in Transistors. Radioactive decay is another behavior that can be monitored electronically...

Tunnel diodes work on the basis of the Quantum tunneling of electrons through a classically insurmountable barrier because of the uncertainty principle and the wave/particle duality. These are real devices the exemplify something called "Negative resistance" when they are forward biased. The electrons are in fact "Transporting" from one side of the barrier to the other.

Shot noise, is quantum noise the occurs in transistors again due to the particle/wave duality of the electron.

So what? Well, what is interesting about these devices is that if you carefully construct them, they make wonderful random number generators that are truly "Quantum Random" if I may coin a term...

Radioactive decay, of course, is another Quantum Random behavior that can be measured with sensitive Geiger counter tubes or chips, and in fact here is an instructable that does just that to produce random numbers:

So, you could essentially create such a device and use it in your magickal practice - for example to see if you can influence the outcome.

Magic: When you pull a rabbit out of a hat...
Magick: When the rabbit pulls you out of a hat...
In either case, you should keep a jaundiced eye on that hat...

Quantum physics is interesting and has given rise to the Quantum Thruster. This almost magical item is fueled by turning particles which appear suddenly at random into plasma. So you can run a thruster in space useing nothing as a fuel source. NASA has tested this odd machine and it does work just at very small thrust values.

Its really fucking n00bish...It has no business being used as an analogy to the realm of the spiritual/aesthetic.

I can see how some could take ideas from quantum theory and relate them to magick. This might be useful to some as a tool (reading Liber Kaos right now, which is a good example), but it's just another means to an end. Take what you can from it, but it doesn't "describe" much in the sense of magick. And I don't think that quantum theory is the same thing as magick, even if one can find parallels when so inclined.

............ Quantum physics is necessary to understand the properties of solids, atoms, nuclei, subnuclear particles and light. In order to understand these natural phenomena, quantum principles have required fundamental changes in how humans view nature. To many philosophers (Einstein included), the conflict between the fundamental probabilistic features of quantum mechanics and older assumptions about determinism provided a cognitive shock that was even more unsettling that the revised views of space and time brought by special relativity.
The word quantum refers to discreteness, i.e., the existence of individual "lumps" as opposed to a continuum. In Newtonian physics, all quantities are allowed to be continuous. For instance, particles can have any momentum and light can have any frequency. A quantum is a discrete packet of energy, charge, or any other quantity.

Quantum mechanics is still poorly understood even by the greatest minds of our day. In fact, a famous scientist by which name I can't remember once said "Anyone who says they understand quantum mechanics doesn't understand quantum mechanics". Our lack of understanding has led to some fantastical interpretations such as the much discussed Many Worlds Interpretation which postulates an infinite number of parallel universes where anything that could have happened did happen. I like most scientists in this field do not accept this as reality, but that this interpretation of quantum physics is instead simply a reflection of our incomplete understanding of our universe at its deepest and most fundamental level.

"To put it in simple, non-scientific terms, nuclear physics (/quantum physics) has robbed the basic units of matter of their absolute concreteness. Paradoxically, mass and energy, wave and particle, have proved to be interchangeable. The laws of cause and effect have become valid only up to a certain point. It does not matter at all that these relatives, discontinuities, and paradoxes hold good only on the margins of our world - only for the infinitely small (the atom) and the infinitely great (the cosmos). They have created a revolutionary change in the concept of reality, and irrational reality has dawned behind the reality of our "natural" world, which is ruled by the laws of classical physics. Corresponding relativities and paradoxes were discovered in the domain of the psyche. Here, too, another world dawned on the margin of the world of consciousness, governed by the new and hitherto unknown laws that are strangely akin to the laws of nuclear physics."

- from an excerpt in "A Witches Bible"; thought it could be an appropriate note to include here from their book.

My opinion.... Its time consuming.
