Today We Learn About: Interpretations of Quantum Reality!

There has been a long running debate throughout the history of Quantum Physics as to what exactly is going on in the physical world on the quantum level. This debate is waged both at the scientific and philosophical levels, however there is no real way as of yet, to declare any of the theories of Quantum Reality as fact, but some theories hold more ground amongst the physics community than others. The variety and scope of these underlying realities is a testament to the complicated nature of the subject at hand. All interpretations of quantum reality deal with the very foundations of Quantum Physics, and that is locality and realism. These interpretations or theories range from the Copenhagen Interpretation, which takes a non-real and non-local stance, to the Many World’s Interpretation which states that the world is realist and non-local. The many theories and interpretations of Quantum Reality can weave a confusing web, but by taking a systematic approach to the explanation of the inner-workings of the universe, it will be seen that no matter who you are, there is an interpretation that will sit right with your interpretation of reality.
