Okay, there are two slits.
There are electrons being shot through space at these slits.
Space can have enough energy at some places to create electron-positron
pairs- these would be like whitecaps on the waves that are implicitly
admitted to be everywhere.
So I would say it's the wavelike pattern of Space itself combined with
electrons being fired without some necessary constraints that gives the variation.
It's like throwing frisbees by the gazillions with varying conditions and spin directions.
You’ve just given a very qualitative description that basically says, yeah,
stuff spreads out.
Compare this with quantum mechanics, which not only gives more detailed
qualitative information, but also quantitative information, like how far
apart will the maxima of the distribution be? what will be the relative
intensities of this maxima? how do those change if the slit spacing
changes? how do those change if the momentum of the electrons is increased?
Then here’s where you say you don’t care about bean counting and you don’t
care that quantum mechanics gets all that right because you just don’t
believe the basic tenets of quantum mechanics.
But a scientist (which you are not) will say that the quantitative
hitting-it-on-the-nose is the best compelling argument there is that the
basic tenets of quantum mechanics are right.
So John, you have it all completely backwards. You decide first what basic
tenets you want to believe, and then let that dictate to you which data are
important to look at. Scientists look at the data first and let that
dictate which basic tenets to believe.
No way to make you start thinking like a scientist. You’re too inside out
