Our Weird Quantum World

The universe cannot possibly obey anything like the rules we instinctively believe. We describe the logic of a series of experiments that prove that the universe instead follows the behavior predicted by quantum mechanics. We take a quick look at a variety of ways of understanding the implications of quantum mechanics and find in the end that none of them are satisfactory.
