comment Why can't the outcome of a QM measurement be calculated a-priori?
I understand your reasoning. However, moving along with it - why do we perceive a particular classical state and not another? Where does that choice come from?

comment Will Determinism be ever possible?
This is only true as long as the QM view of the world is correct. There is no experiment that "proves" that the mathematical foundation of e.g. using operators for measurements is actually a "fundamental" property of nature.

that QM is a feature of the universe is opinable. Even its founding fathers believed it to be a temporary theory. It also doesn't play nice with gravitation and it has not been extended yet with anything sensible. It could be a feature of the universe, but it's not clear-cut that it is. Any successful theory seems right, but may be fundamentally wrong (see Newton's law of gravitation)

comment Is energy really conserved?
they can have very real consequences as long as they don't violate the conservation of energy, for example, Hawking radiation (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawking_radiation)

comment Is energy really conserved?
neither. I mean that energy can increase or decrease locally for an amount of time which is inversely proportional to the fluctuation size, and that any fluctuation must disappear within that time frame. The overall balance of energy is constant.

comment Why can you “suck in” cooked spaghetti?
I merely live in the UK ;-) Actually, if you need to suck in a spaghetti and you don't want to make a slurping noise, then you need an airtight seal. It's italian food bon-ton ;-)
