I can only tell you what it is. I take that view; when I teach quantum mechanics, just tell the rules and say, "This is what happens. This is how we calculate things." And whether you like the formulas or not, it's not my concern. And the fact that it doesn't look like daily life, also not my concern, because this is not daily life. Strange things happen. But you have to keep me informed on how much you're following and what you are understanding, at any stage.
