In my essay 527 I already pointed to the possibility that some oddities of QM can be ascribed to mistakes in the philosophy behind application of mathematics to physics. I apologize for possibly having overlooked groundbreaking experimental results. Maybe, I am wrong. You will judge my findings rather disappointing:
- Due to unilateral restriction of measured time, complex description does not at all offer an additional degree of freedom as compared to the real-valued one, cf. my essay 369.
- All important experts in mathematics and philosophy before Dedekind, e.g. Aristoteles, Euclid, Newton, Leibniz, and still including Weierstrass, did not interpret numbers as points on the line of numbers but as distance between zero and the limit from the left to the point. Maybe, Dedekind mislead us?
