There is no quantum revolution

What is it about?

The so-called quantum revolution comes from the understanding if quantum mechanics as observer-dependent. Quantum theories without observers are still revolutionary if the wave function is physically real. I argue that there are ways to interpret quantum theory so that it is not necessary to think of the wave function this way. If so, quantum mechanics is less paradoxical than one would have thought.

Why is it important?

The paradoxicality and the radicality of quantum mechanics are just red herrings: quantum mechanics can be paradox free and understandable. Just get rid of the wave function.
