Quantum physics works exceptionally well in practice. It has justifiably been called "the most successful scientific theory ever". Its problems are interpretational: how to make sense of its various rational contradictions. The question having occupied some of humanity's best brains for nearly a century with spectacular lack of success, one is led to suspect its fun¬damental assumptions. Two such are that 1) the quantum/¬photon is the minimum existing energy/matter packet; 2) subatomic reality is inher¬ently indeterminate. Neither is justified. The quantum could simply be our mini¬mum observable energy/matter packet. Physical reality could be essen¬tially determinate. But due to quantum measurement uncertain¬ty, in the subatomic domain it appears to us to be indeterminate. In each case there are two hypo¬theses, neither of which can be proved nor refuted. Mean¬ing that both must be consid¬ered. Quantum physics fails to do this. The article adopts the neglected alternatives, and thereby makes better sense of apparent quantum wierdness. Due to its analogy with classical dice-throwing, we call it the 'Dicey Interpret¬ation' of quan¬tum physics. It is conceptual and 98% non-mathematical.
