Abstract

Is predictability a fundamental feature of natural reality?  If so, then the future of both particles and waves should be deterministic.  Here I show that this notion of determinism implies that quantum objects such as photons are not real.

Abstract

Are quantum objects such as photons real? If so, they should either be waves or particles, but not both. Here I show this notion of reality implies nature is fundamentally unpredictable.
