Hi Lee,

  As much as I sympathise with your call for preservation of naive
 and agree entirely with your opinion on the demerits of introspection
 I have to take issue with half of what you say below:

  Yes we cannot explain QM by classical physics but NEITHER can we
 from QM the classical world we know and love with its well defined and
  assigned elements of (naive) physical reality that you so much
cherish, I am afraid!
 If we did there would not be no Measurement Problem, no spooky
  long-distance correlations, no zombie Schrodinger Cat's around to
haunt us...

 You see, amplitudes don't just add! They also multiply and square!

 I hope this does not add to your grumpiness. The miracle of experience
 you talk about is still there, of course. Even more so, perhaps.
