comment What evidence is there of a universe older than 13.8 billion years
think this is a halfway decent question & not really a so-called se "list question" (whatever that is). there is some misunderstanding here. the current interpretation of the new found massive black hole is that the current model of black hole formation is up for question/ reevaluation, not the current estimated age of the universe. so far havent heard any mainstream physicists asserting the age of the universe has to be reevaluated although that is one alternative....

comment finetuned quantum experiments by Murch lab, do any have dynamics outside of basic QM formalism/ axioms?
lol presumably real experts in QM esp in foundations or interpretations will be interested & the effects are also said to have applications in quantum computing etc. here is one of the papers on arxiv, forgot to cite it, Prediction and retrodiction for a continuously monitored superconducting qubit Weber et al, others may be on arxiv also...

comment What is the connection between geometry of physical space and Hilbert space?
lol QM meshing with GR is not philosophy... its a deep empirical question at the heart of applied physics affecting cosmology, big bang, expansion of universe, black holes, etc... ps it is nearly a question that even Einstein may have worked on some...

comment What is the connection between geometry of physical space and Hilbert space?
it seems like this question could be interpreted as asking about how QM meshes with GR which is an open area of research..... its an open question for decades how to reconcile the two.

comment “Reality” of EM waves vs. wavefunction of individual photons - why not treat the wave function as equally “Real”?
however suppose there was a possibility of generally mathematically converting between "3N dimension configuration space" $\psi(x_1,...,x_N)$ and a 3d space/time function $\psi_r(x,y,z,t)$. no such general theory seems to exist (maybe Bohmian mechanics coming close?) but also the density function seems to be close to this. nor does it seem such a formulation can entirely be ruled out by existing theory.

comment Are quantum mechanics and determinism actually irreconcilable?
this is indeed a deep question cutting to the heart of QM physics and relates to the possible "incompleteness" of a physical theory. bell's thm is highly relevant and the long string of related research starting with EPR, bohmian mechanics, hidden variable theories, etc., see also toy models of QM

comment Does one really need classical physics in order to understand quantum physics?
my feeling is that the classical analogs of QM physics are not fully understood/ realized at this time and that this tie/ bridge will be strengthened in newer emerging research.

comment Features used in quantum mechanics but not used in classical mechanics
do not agree the other question answers this question which is quite interesting/ independent in its own right. some further analysis/ research/ investigation of related areas see also chat, toy models of QM

comment Connections between classical mechanics and quantum mechanics
believe that classical metaphors/ links/ models that align with QM have not been fully explored/ researched/ analyzed/ appreciated to date. see eg chat, toy models of QM
