Quantum Physics
From my time in University studying Astronomy and Physics I learned a few things about Quantum Mechanics. Now I’m not an expert, at heart I am a Geologist mind you, but I am familiar with String Theory, Quantum Entanglement, Quantum Retrocausality, and a few other subfields. At least enough to know when to shut up when the other physicists start talking in depth.
One of the biggest efforts in Physics is the hunt for a way to bring together Quantum Mechanics (which works beautifully on the subatomic scale, but not bigger) and Relativity (which works for planets, and stars, and the universe but not on the subatomic scale) into one theory. A single set of equations that would cover everything. It’s been damndably hard to do, they’ve been struggling with the problem since well before I was born. Einstein himself worked on it for the last period of his life, and got nowhere.
Now if you look at the quantum world you get things like Quantum Entanglement, that spooky action at a distance, particles appearing out of nothing by drawing on background energy, that’s how black holes evaporate, and something I just ran across, Quantum Retrocausality, that events now can influence the past. All in all the Quantum world is a very strange place.
Not that the bigger universe with Relativistic Time Dilation, warped space, and black holes, is not strange enough in its own way, but it’s more familiar. It’s the world we live in. It seems normal by comparison, albeit very different from the quantum world.
Maybe that’s a clue.
Maybe the universe is set up so that the Relativistic part of the universe and the Quantum part, can’t coexist within one single theoretical framework. Maybe they are supposed to operate in different scales and not be connected on some subtle way.
I mean I really wouldn’t want to live in a universe where quantum rules could apply. Where my key’s could get quantum entangled with someone else’s keys, so they ripped my pants off if my friend drove away. I’m not sure if I’d be happy with birds suddenly appearing if I got too close to you. (With all due respect to Karen Carpenter.) I don’t know if I’d be comfortable with the idea that because I ate a ham sandwich today, I’d have a heart attack last Wednesday.
Maybe it’s best if the Quantum Rules stay in Quantum world.
Maybe that’s why they haven’t been able to find the answer. Maybe it’s not supposed to happen. Maybe it’s better this way.

Battinson!Bruce: Okay. I'm going to go up and order. You want chicken nuggets, right?
Baby!Dick: Maybe this time you tell me what you want and I'll order?
Battinson!Bruce: Why would we do that?

i know all about neurotypicals btw. they’re cold and unfeeling and don’t even flap their hands when they’re happy. however with the right support they can achieve anything (within reason)
