Abstract

It was recently shown that quantum and classical mechanics are related in a deeper and more intimate way than previously thought possible. A geometric framework for both theories that allowed going back and forth between quantum and classical processes was discovered. The quantum-mechanical experiments were presented in a new and illuminating fashion, paving a way to resolve the paradoxes of quantum theory. The downside of the theory is a relatively involved machinery of functional analysis and differential geometry used to derive the results. At the same time, the main conclusions are fundamentally simple and can be presented without complicated math. The goal of this paper is to provide such a ``no math" presentation of the theory.
