artifact description
The measurement problem of quantum mechanics has been there for almost a century. Academia tends to regard this problem as a combination of definite outcomes and preferred basis. At the start of this century, John Conway and Simon Kochen proposed the strong free will theorem. This theorem clearly proved that free will exist within any given particle, which implies that particles have perceptions and freedom of choices. A particle’s perception and its free will are then linked with energy, and two principles of energy are reached: the perception-energy principle and the will-energy principle. With these two principles, the measurement problem can be solved, and a new interpretation of quantum mechanics can be revealed.
