Our brains simply didn’t evolve to think about a quantum universe.
PROFUNDITY OR NONSENSE?

On first blush that sounds correct, but if they didn’t evolve to think about a quantum universe, then either we are not really thinking about a quantum universe or our brains did evolve thusly.

The essence of what you are saying is that it is impossible — for biological reasons — to think about a quantum universe.

In short what i’m saying is we must have evolved to think about a quantum universe or else we wouldn’t be doing it. But our so-called quantum universe may only be a crude characterization of reality.
