Discovery is not an entitlement for the few but a certainty for any who is determined to find scientific truth. Guess who said this?

@Dilaton The foundations of all experimental sciences is mathematics, so I like to quote David Hilbert when it comes to such matters. "We must know - we will know". Says a lot about the man and his respect for knowledge.

xxx.lanl.gov/pdf/1111.3328v2.pdf Mathematicians from Imperial College London produced a proof for the physical existence of wave functions. The research was published in Nature Magazine. Doesn't exactly support the Copenhagen Interpretation.

@Dilaton: Macro-Scale entanglement is being produced at many universities in Europe, Japan and the USA so Quantum Mechanics has no limit. The Copenhagen Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics has reached it's limit which Einstein Predicted it would.

Regarding Translating Quantum Collapse into the large scale world: A wave function with classical properties was successfully isolated in the motion of binary stars. See.indjst.org/index.php/indjst/article/view/30008/25962 and my profile where it was reported at Anna Astronomy News.

@1504 Is there a mechanism for time symmetry breaking is the question. If the Standard Model could answer that question I assume we would be able to derive classical physics from the Standard Model or quantum physics which is not the case.

The Standard Model is not linked to classical physics or mechanics it is link to symmetries. When those symmetries are broken there no mechanism to explain that break. This is why the Standard Model struggles to find a mechanism for giving mass, the Higgs is one possibility.

@anna v. All mathematical descriptions of time do not have to be symmetric. We know Newtonian mechanics is time symmetric and Thermodynamics is time asymmetric. How can laws that are symmetric in time be used to derive laws that are asymmetric in time if some mechanism did not brake that symmetry. The standard model is not classical, is not mechanical and you can have time independent wave functions. I thought the Standard Model was based on symmetries not mechanics as viewed in classical physics.

Thermodynamics is technically not excluded because it is a form of classical mechanics to the extend that the laws of physics that are symmetric in time can be used to derive the laws of thermodynamics which are not symmetric in time. That is why I asked about the mechanism.

The B-H formula is correct in part with respect to Area factor. We know it is correct to this extent because a theory combining quantum structures and gravity has been successfully tested.
