Alice in Quantumland
The theory of quantum electrodynamics describes Nature as absurd
from the point of view of common sense.
And it agrees fully with experiment.
So I hope you accept Nature as She is ? absurd.
/ QED : The Strange Theory of Light and Matter
page. 10. by R. Feynman /

? Many believe that relative theory tells us that ours
is a kind of Alice-in-Wonderland universe; that this
revealed by the mathematician Einstein who discovered
that there is a fourth dimension, . . . .. . . that, in short,
everything is relative and mysterious. ?
/ Book ?Albert Einstein? , page 4. By Leopold Infeld ./

We still don't know that negative 4-D is. (!)

In the other words:
Physicists show us the absurd and mysterious existence
of nature as a real fact.
I cannot believe that nature is absurd and mysterious.
I think that their interpretations in relative and
quantum electrodynamics theories were wrong.

'Oh, you can't help that,' said the cat. 'We're all mad here.'
