Without invalidating quantum mechanics as a principle underlying the dynamics of a fundamental theory, it is possible to ask for even more basic dynamical laws that may yield quantum mechanics as the machinery needed for its statistical analysis. In conventional systems such as the Standard Model for quarks and leptons, this would lead to hidden variable theories, which are known to be plagued by problems such as non-locality. But Planck scale physics is so different from field theories in some… CONTINUE READING
