Pete, whilst I am happy to accept that the earlier explanations are wrong, they are the sort of explanation that one finds in P S books.  I feel, therefore, it is quite important that counter explanations should be such that the average reader of P S books (hitch-hikers on the journey of scientific understanding) should be able to understand them.

For example; what is a "position bra" (under-wired ?  :) ), or a "state ket", and what is the significance of < | and | >.
I explain all this on my website at http://home.comcast.net/~peter.m.brown/qm/state_space.htm
