Is anyone ever going to be able to explain the Quantum world in away most of can grasp?

I understand parts but, not all.
This is interesting.
Read it here.

Not today, because they (Scientists) don't fully understand the quantum world themselves.
Subatomic particles seem to have a different owner's manual.
They do things that they shouldn't be able to do.

Personally, I think they're capable of what they are because of the scale of space/time that they operate in at that subatomic level.

Kind of like if you roll a bowling ball over a piece of taut silk, it rolls smoothly.
But, if you roll something very, very small over that same silk, it'll fall through the gaps in the weave.
In short, small particles and large particles behave differently in/on the fabric of space/time.

There also may be limits on the scale of space/time.
In other words, distance can only be divided so many times before it ceases to exist.


Here's why I think that way.

Let's say you're traveling from point A to point B.
Before you can get to point B you have to cross a midpoint.
We'll call that C.
Now before you can get to point C, you have to cross the midpoint between A and C.
We'll call that point D.
Before you can get to point D, you have to cross a midpoint between A and D.
We'll call that point E.
As you can see, there are an infinite number of midpoints that need to be crossed before to can get to your destination, point B.
Since that's the case, you should never be able to reach point B.

Unless.... time/space can only be scaled down so far, so there isn't a midpoint at that smallest scale.
Then we would no longer have an infinite number of midpoints to cross, so we can get to point B.

Being able to get to point B may also have something to do with extra unseen dimensions.
Dimensions that aren't measured by height, width, and depth.
They have directions of their own.

Oh... Oh.... Brain's getting tied in a knot again.

If it did happen, we wouldn't know it.
In other words, we wouldn't remember a different outcome.
It would still seem like a first run deal for us.
That means it could have already happened.

Sometime it makes some sense other times I just can't visualize it.
My husband is hung on how something happens differently if, someone observes it.
We comprehend less than we do not.
If time travel is possible our reality is a delusion. That scares me.
I fare that someone could change history for the worse. I pay that is not possible.

When I think about it my brain just kinda wanders around in circles.

When I think I am starting to understand something is always said, that throws me off.
Your correct scientist are still unsure. They often differ in what they think.
