These two principles seem to have caused an uproar within the scientific community and to have supposedly disrupted notions of 'causality'. Since both features already existed before their 'discovery' and operate at such a miniscule level, how can they alter what we experience in our reality of everyday life. Black holes exert millions and even billions of more power than our sun and each galaxy is said to have one. And yet they exert no discernable effect on life on earth. It seems that those who make claims about this overthrow of Newton's theories and who postulate some worldview changing effect from these phenomena are just confused, could that be possible?
The short answer is yes -- too many (most?) people are quite confused.
Specifically, they are confused about things that we don't experience on a day-to-day basis. Things that can only be understood through mental models and abstract reasoning.
Remarkably, one the first concepts they would struggle with, is also fundamental to our notion of truth, to our ability to tell whether something is true, and to our capacity for the knowledge itself.
Specifically, it's the objective nature reality that they are not comfortable with. Yet that is exactly what we must assume -- the objective and explainable reality that we all share and are a part of -- before we can know of anything else. Truth and knowledge, therefore, must be, by definition, objective.
Yet when a person relies exclusively on their own experience, when their own experience is everything they will ever know, it makes the necessarily subjective.
BTW, as extreme as it sounds, it is a very old news indeed:
‟And although the lógos is common, most people live as if they had their own private understanding.
-- Heraclitus, circa 450 BC
And that's the reason for their fascination with Quantum Mechanics -- because, on the surface, it undermines the concept of objective reality, if only on the subatomic scale.
