"There is a dramatic discontinuity between the physical world as most people conceive it and the world as modern physics explains it. As Danah Zohar sums up the matter in her book, The Quantum Self, the popular mind continues to imagine the physical world in terms of Newton's colliding billiard balls, whereas quantum reality is very different.
This metaphor of a 'quantum hussy,' is not only Ms. Zohar's way of describing how, on a subatomic level, events 'happen simultaneously in every direction at once.' It also sums up the startling thesis of her book, which is that the human mind is like the quantum hussy in its capacity to conceive of many possibilities simultaneously."
