comment do quantum fields exist in superposition?
I would really appreciate a quick answer to this. A yes or no in many ways with maybe a slight extention, Im not fussed

when it says "generally" here does it mean "always"

comment Does hidden variable quantum mechanics imply the collapse of atoms(electrons falling into the nucleus)?
thanks. when we observe and measure the electron also the wavefunction collapses and we get a single electron in a definite state going around the nucleus? - is that right?

john and others, so electrons can have a definite single location at all times, orbit a nucleus like this and not collapse in on the nucleus according to HV theories?

michael or others any update?

comment Does hidden variable quantum mechanics imply the collapse of atoms(electrons falling into the nucleus)?
and what does this mean for observed atoms in other interpretations?. observed atoms have there wavefunction collapse so that they have a single definite location and the observed electron would have a single definite orbit. in this case why wouldnt the atom collapse in on itself?

Michael, others would disagree with you on that. If we assume they are valid option, are they ruled out by the fact atoms would collapse in on themselves because having a well defined postion at all times would mean they collapse in?

comment Is all matter made of virtual particles?
ok, but you are confirming protons are made up of virtual particles only and not real particles. Field quanta are virtual particles not real particles...

comment Is all matter made of virtual particles?
peter my point is, QFT says that ALL quarks are constantenly being created and annihilated all the time from the vacuum of inside the hadron very quickly, this would make them virtual particles and hence the proton/field quanta is a virtual particle, am I right or wrong? advice please
