Quote from: JeffreyThe biggest problem is that the measuring device cannot be independent of the object that it is measuring. It affects the object it is measuring.
Undoubtedly; but it doesn't say how one could aim at, or hit, an object that doesn't exist until it is hit.
Well then, the object has to exist. An indeterminacy relates more to our lack of understanding than to whether or not a particle exists. Quantum mechanics is a model. It approximates an underlying reality. We are taught to believe what our senses tell us but they are fallible.
