comment Why is QM maximally predictive?
You read my post far too literally. Or you're pretending to read it too literally.

comment An atomic bomb explodes inside of an “unbreakable” container which is on a scale. Does the “weight” of the container change?
I think it's pretty clear from his question that this is a thought experiment alone, designed to understand the relationship between energy and gravity. I'm not sure why everyone's focusing on the irrelevant "engineering" problem of designing a box.

comment Applying an operator to a function vs. a (ket) vector
Why are elements of a Hilbert space called "vectors" anyway? Can't we just call them elements? It seems kind of confusing to say a function is a type of vector. The word "vector" has always had the connotation of being a list of elements (at least in high school, undergrad, and grad school engineering courses), rather than an element itself...

comment Virtual particles and physical laws
So if one used non-perturbative methods to do calculations, there would be no purpose for virtual particles?

comment Determinism loophole?
Good then. That's exactly what I'm doing here.

comment Determinism loophole?
I'm not trying to insist on a classical theory -- I learn best by trying to come up with a counterexample and then figuring out what went wrong (I suppose you could call it learning by contradiction?)
