comment Ambiguity in number of basis vectors
The issues of incompleteness enter through the axiomization approach developed by Von Neumann, the formalism is absolutely consistent, but the interpretation is left open and depends upon physical observation. Von Neumann was very clear on this point. "Uncertainty" is purely rooted in as part of arbitrariness in the outcome of physical observation. So there is nothing inconsistent in the math, just how we interpret what the math tells us. thefurloff.com/2014/02/12/…
