Art, what does what you think or feel have to do with whether you're a quantum physicist? Obviously, you're not. And what does whether I'm married or not have to do with your lack of credentials? C'mon, man.

Here's a list of 122 internationally known quantum physicists.

Let's examine the credentials of just one of them: Christian_Møller, a Danish chemist and physicist who made fundamental contributions to the theory of relativity, theory of gravitation and quantum chemistry. He's known for the Møller–Plesset perturbation theory.

Møller–Plesset perturbation theory (MP) is one of several quantum chemistry post-Hartree–Fock ab initio methods in the field of computational chemistry. It improves on the Hartree–Fock method by adding electron correlation effects by means of Rayleigh–Schrödinger perturbation theory (RS-PT), usually to second (MP2), third (MP3) or fourth (MP4) order. Its main idea was published as early as 1934 by Christian Møller and Milton S. Plesset.

Here's the formula:

Art, do you have any idea whatsoever what Dr. Møller is talking about?

I thought not. And besides, what does it matter? Why must everyone on this board think you understand quantum physics? Obviously, you don't, so what's the point?
